Live performances demand reliable, and innovative equipment. Luminous specialising in creating custom-made equipment for the world’s biggest shows and entertainment.

Our variety of technologies can be used to create effects on stage, often bought in the early stages of show development to demonstrate and advise options that are technically deliverable. Products are then developed to work in the environment, often working to a specific access, size and weight.
