Zellerbach Theater LED Spotlight Installation

Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts

The Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts installed a new mobile, digital, LED-based system of intelligent follow spotlights to replace its current 40-year-old, energy-intensive system. The project reduces spotlight energy consumption by approximately 70 percent and provides a return on investment within one year.

The new spotlights were installed in Spring 2011. Initial feedback from the Annenberg Center has said that the new spotlights work extremely well and are easy to use.
