Despite the advancement in recent camera technology, lighting is still critical. Theatrical lighting expert Norman Russell LC speaks at LightShow West 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Wednesday, October 11th at 1pm. He’ll host a one-hour roundtable discussion on “Lighting for the Video Camera.”

Optimizing lighting for new environments such as the individual video presentation (the One-Button Studio) as well as traditional video teleconferencing, distance learning, and lecture capture can mean the difference between a highly-usable end result and a fuzzy black blob. This roundtable discussion will cover both studio and non-studio approaches. Norman creatively transposes concepts and techniques from one type of venue to another, and applies otherwise non-obvious emerging technologies in intriguing ways. His expertise includes higher education, broadcast television, video production, theatre, and government applications. In addition to new construction, Norm is particularly adept at adaptive reuse, systems and equipment upgrades, and converting existing facilities into flexible, multi-function performance spaces.

As part of the Lighting Design Education Track, Norman’s session is customized for architects, engineers and lighting designers. Participants qualify for 1.0 AIA LU, 1 BOMI CPD, 1 IDCEC, and 1 NCQLP LEU, and costs $25 per person. For more information, visit 2017 LightShow West.
