Lighting Control and Dimming System
Edison Theatre is equipped with a Strand CD 80 / 8 dimming system, updated with the Strand retrofit kit allowing DMX control. Four dimmer racks contain 282 2.4k dimmers. Control is provided by an ETC Ion 2000. The light board is operated from house right of the sound board or from the light booth, which is located in the front of house balcony position; Edison also owns a wireless remote focus unit which can be used onstage during focus calls. Upon request, a production tech table can be set up in the house with access to the light board and Clear-Com communication.

The 10° fixtures live on the third catwalk, nearly all 15°-30° zooms live on the second catwalk, and approximately a dozen 19°’s live on the first catwalk. These are moved only when necessary, as the catwalk layout makes transportation difficult. Also, please consult Edison’s master electrician if planning to use the first catwalk as a primary front light position.
