The lighting equipment used in the entertainment industry is quite different from that used in consumer or commercial settings.

Theatrical lighting is very high wattage, typically 500 to 2000 watts per lamp and considerably higher for spotlights and searchlights. It requires special dimmers and transformers when used in quantity as on a typical stage.

There are also some kinds of low-wattage lights used in the entertainment industry and nowhere else, for example disco lighting and lighting special effects.

This category contains sites which do online sales of professional lighting equipment for the entertainment industry. This includes lighting for stage, studio, and special effects.

For entertainment industry lighting sites which do not have online sales, find the appropriate subcategory of Business: Industries: Arts and Entertainment: Equipment: Lighting.

Consumer lighting does not belong in this category. For that, see Shopping: Office Products: Furniture: Lighting or Shopping: Home and Garden: Electrical: Lighting.
