Lighting Design Guides
Good lighting design covers visual comfort, visual performance, and safety. Whether utilizing fixtures for security, landscape or dramatic effect, outdoor luminaires will transform a space. While exterior lighting may fall under a landscape architect’s purview, it’s essential to understand how outdoor lights can integrate with a building and its landscape. Understanding the play between light and dark, architects can use contrast and shadows to create inspiring and intriguing spaces.
Commercial outdoor lighting usually requires different fixtures and commands. DMX systems allow for superior control and nearly unlimited lighting channel options, making DMX the perfect choice for outdoor lighting packages. Standard DMX and DMX/RDM protocol enhancement for bi-directional communication between connected DMX devices for lighting and device control are available.
