DE SISTI LIGHTING

PROFILE

THE HISTORY
Founded in February of 1982 by the internationally acclaimed
designer Mario De Sisti, De Sisti Lighting has emerged as a world
leader in the manufacture and distribution of top quality lighting
equipment in the motion picture, television, theatre and professional
photography industries.
With a strong emphasis on craftsmanship and performance, the
company has been responsible for numerous major technological
advances both in the electromechanical and photometric areas of
luminaire development.
As trend setters in the entertainment industry, De Sisti has guided
such important innovations as flicker-free electronic ballasts, singleend high efficiency HMI lamps, motorised self-climbing hoists,
telescopes and, most recently, robotic controlled lighting.

GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION
Headquartered in Rome, Italy, the company presently
operates in 42 countries around the globe. This extensive network of
professional and experienced personnel enables De Sisti to provide
unmatched levels of stock, service, customer support and project
management, while maintaining its leadership position on the creative
advancement of the art of Lighting.

.LIGHTING SUSPENSIONS In studios the majority of lighting is placed at a reasonable height above the acting area. This requirement combined with the lighting fixture choice and positioning has pushed the industry to develop a range of lighting suspension products in order to fulfil the different studio sizes. considering the clutter of Video Camera and Booms. designed and manufactured up to the most severe Safety Standards and applying the concept of total quality. as the floor cannot be full of Lighting and distribution equipment. has developed a wide range of rigging and lighting products. requirements (type of programs) and budgets.

Artistic benefit: any light source can be vertically moved. . change in colour and beam spread within seconds from 1 person. Energy saving : an equivalent system using a conventional lighting technology would require more light sources (at least 2 times those used in a fully automated system) kept on for a much longer time during preparation. 1 Person running the whole system. with a consequent higher energy consumption and bigger requirement of air conditioning because of the higher heat produced.
