YES Events pleased with PROLIGHTS performance via AC-ET

UK – Established in 1999, YES Events are the skilled team behind a wide variety of UK events. Their ability to deliver projects of any size with their in-house services, means you can rely on them to realise your vision.

What we found interesting…

The history of fader and lighting desks:

Many people use Lighting Desks on a daily basis but have you ever wondered how we came to know and love these brilliant pieces of kit? If so, read on… Let’s start at the beginning.

These types of desks were commonplace in schools, with desks like the Strand Mini 2, Eltec, Furse and many others being a widely recognised fixture. It was rare that more than 24 channels were used with six-channel dimmer packs.
