LIGHTING

The Sinclair is equipped with a fully LED lighting system which includes 18 American DJ RGBW moving head wash and 5 High End SolaSpots.  Our control is a Road Hog however we do have FOH space for visiting gear. Our gear utilizes a whole universe with a few channels to spare as well as the last 12 channels of a 2nd universe.  Feel free to use any available channels for your data needs.  Additional data requirements should be advanced.  Please review our lighting plot for additional channel schedule and fixture locations.

The venue has a 200A 3-phase camlock tie-in for any additional power distribution needs.  This may be used for sound, lights or both however there is only 1 ground so conventional lighting fixtures are not recommended if there are sound system additions on this power.
