Stage technology
Stage lighting sets the tone and atmosphere of a theatre play, concert, musical or opera and thus touches upon a crucial element in a live performance.

Pearle* has been involved in the review of the Commission regulations on ecodesign and ecolabelling which include provisions that exempt the use of special purpose lamps used in the live performance sector from current ecodesign requirements.

Whilst employers and managers of live performance organisations are looking and investing into new ways of lighting design, including ecologically-friendly approaches, they are equally concerned to continue providing the best experience for their audiences through the available technical equipment. Because there is a lack of replacement available on the market for technical equipment being used today, exemptions from ecodesign requirements remain essential for the live performance sector.

Concert halls, theatres and other venues have already adapted their buildings or are in the process of making those energy-efficient. Most of the spaces in the buildings, such as the entrance hall, the auditorium, etc. are already equipped with ecologically-friendly lighting.

On stage lighting, Pearle* coordinates the European Entertainment Ecodesign Coalition - a European-wide group of associations working in the entertainment, lighting design, live performance and film/TV sectors.
