LED tape may not get the attention that high beam moving heads or flashy LED backdrops enjoy, but it certainly has its place on live sets as a visually important – and highly cost effective – decorative element. Take Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Jon Secada’s show at the Wynn Resort’s Encore Theater in Las Vegas as an example where the Cuban-born singer performed with full backup on a stage composed of seven different levels and custom staircases.
Production/lighting designer Demfis Fyssicopulos used hefty amounts of Elation Flex LED Tape to outline the multi-tiered stage and accentuate the flowing form of the set, lining every curve of the stage and staircase in strips of color that matched the shades coming from the rig and LED backdrop. Besides highlighting the set in dynamic color, the LED border added both height and depth perspective to the stage.
Elation Flex LED tape is a thin and flexible LED strip covered in a water-proof sleeve. It is available in RGB and white versions and can be cut to any length to fit custom designs. High output, low heat and easy to install, designers are increasingly using it to create an easy, eye-catching border of LED light.
