The After Ceremony Event - Graduation Style!

High school, undergraduate or post-graduate...YOU DID IT!  After the formalities of the ceremonies are over, it's time to get down and have a great time with your family and friends.  Whether your graduation party is in a ballroom, a private residence or in a tent - we can help you get your party started and keep it rocking all night long!

Solus Lighting LTD specializes in special event lighting, and nothing is much more special than celebrating your entrance into higher education or the work force.  Lighting can help enhance the theme of your graduation party and can offer color support in your former or future school colors.  We customize our lighting designs for every event, and work with you or your event planner to make your vision come to life.  Having a true lighting professional on site for the party is essential to get the best & most out of the lighting rig.  Our lighting technicians have the ability to provide soft subtle lighting for the early portion of the party, and can then transform that same lighting rig into club style lighting when the dance floor gets hot.  These two extreme examples, and anything in between can be accomplished with us at the helm of the lighting console.

If you want to rock out with your lights on contact Solus Lighting LTD now!  Visit us on the web or give us a call at 216-912-2199.  Have lights will travel, we are not only lighting up Cleveland, Ohio - we are everywhere...

Spring brings commencement season

Spring awakens the senses to new beginnings.  Now that April is here, many people are looking forward to a major event – Commencement.  Graduation Ceremonies are tradition to mark a milestone achievement, and, for many, mark the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. 

Colleges and universities are continually expanding their curriculums to offer more majors and degrees for undergraduate, graduate, post graduate, and trade certifications.  This expansion has increased graduating class sizes. 

Commencement ceremonies are being held in larger and larger facilities – tents, auditoriums, convention centers, and arenas.  Friends and family members attend to watch their loved one cross the stage and receive their hard earned degree.  With these ceremonies taking place in larger facilities, technology is needed to ensure the occasion can be clearly seen and heard. 

Sound reinforcement and image magnification (IMAG) are often used to ensure each walking member of the class can be seen and their name heard.  IMAG is live footage shot at an event and broadcast onto a large screen to give the audience a better view. 

Lighting is essential to achieve great image quality for live IMAG and televised events.  The proper fixtures, positions, and intensity levels make certain those dark robes don’t merge into the background.  Working with a professional lighting designer will ensure there isn’t a bad seat in the house for your commencement ceremony.
