LDI Report::Part 1::Eye Candy

LDI is where lighting designers go to dream. Companies spend big bucks to bring their products and show them off in the most spectacular fashion. Ironically, some of the less-reputable names have some of the largest booths. High End was completely absent–a source told me that they don’t spend money on trade shows because they introduce new products directly to key designers (not because they are having financial difficulties).

In this post I’m going to highlight a few photos of the show in general. For more, check out my Flickr photostream. In future posts, I plan to focus on reviewing some lighting consoles. First, some spectacular booths from Chauvet and Robe–it appears they are trying hard to be taken seriously by lighting professionals.

At the Chauvet booth, note the array of 96 mini-movers! I was also impressed with the booth from XST:

I’m not a rigger, but it sure looks like they know what they’re doing with truss. Cyberhoist also had a really sweet booth. The trusses moved up and down at changing angles in various coordinated patterns.

Finally, it wouldn’t be polite for me to finish without a picture of the Barbizon booth, since they were responsible for my free admission to the show!

LDI is a great show, and I highly recommend it to anyone in the lighting industry. LDI 2008 will take place in Las Vegas.
