There is no doubt that the LED is revolutionizing the lighting industry as we knew it. There are many reasons to celebrate the passage of the scenic spaces of conventional lighting to this new technology and one of the advantages of greater weight is the ability to work with color.

Luminaires that are capable of producing multiple shades allow users to mix the same color in different ways. For example, an amber could be achieved with the LED of the same color or by mixing red and green.

Each of these options creates a different atmosphere on the stage and allows the illuminator to express emotions in several different ways. The possibility of adjusting colors in a precise way is an opportunity that had never been given in conventional lighting.

Likewise, designers also have the possibility of making transitions between colors. For example, an orange light could go directly to blue light, or stop for a moment in the purple that is created intermediate. All these achievements make the color mix that LED offers a very desirable possibility for lighting artists, although sometimes finding the right color can be a challenge.
