Entertainment Design, the magazine dedicated to the design professional, has announced this year’s Lighting Product of the Year honorees. The five winners, picked by a panel of working lighting designers and technicians, will be honored at this year’s EDDY Awards, to be held Friday, June 18 at John Jay College Theatre in New York.

The winners, which will be featured in the March issue of ED, are:

Electronic Theatre Controls Revolution
Said one judge:“As a lighting designer who prefers accurate conventional lighting, the Revolution is the perfect tool to allow me to focus on design on stage rather than technology in the air. It is bright and quiet and behaves like a stage light should.”

City Theatrical/ John McKernon Software Lightwright 4
"Imagining lighting paperwork without Lightwright is scary!" say the judges. "John McKernon has made this workhorse even more seamless with current technology and practice. Awesome!"

Entertainment Technology Bak Pak
“For letting old-fashioned lights co-exist in an increasingly DMX-wired world,” says one judge. “Useful, compact, nice looking construction, with or without DMX operation,” says another.

InLight Rent-A-Gobo
Say the judges: “Access to great, absolutely first-rate stuff without busting the budget: this frees the imagination beyond purse strings, as anyone who has ever had to roll dimes to ride the subway can appreciate.”

Wybron WatchDog and DogBone
“Great for supporting the migration to RDM," say the judges. "Wybron continues to help to push the frontiers forward in lighting control."
