Featuring an updated title, this 3rd edition of Automated Lighting: The Art and Science of Moving and Color-Changing Lights (formerly Automated Lighting: The Art and Science of Moving Light) continues to be a trusted text for working and aspiring lighting professionals. It has been fully revised to reflect the vast changes in stage as well as studio illumination-including LEDs, switch-mode power supplies, optics, networking, Ethernet-based protocols like Art-Net and sACN, wireless DMX, and much more. Written in clear, easy-to-understand language, it includes enough detailed information to benefit even the most experienced lighting technicians, programmers, and designers.

Richard Cadena is an Entertainment Technician Certification Program (ETCP)-recognized trainer and an ETCP-certified entertainment electrician. As a freelance technician, designer, and consultant, he has worked on concert tours, in television and theater, and he has designed dozens of lighting systems for permanent installations.
