Light Lab

Located at the Theatre and Production Studios (TAPS) in the Academic Activities Building, the Light Lab is a fully equipped facility for lighting design. Utilizing both historical and modern dimming sytems, the lab contains a CD80 dimmer pack and a working resistance "piano" board. The lab is available for designers to show "looks" to directors and check the color pallette during the design process, and it provides a functional classroom for lighting classes.

Penn State enjoys a close working relationship with many top manufacturers, allowing us to beta-test new equipment and experience the latest in lighting technology in our 30-seat Lighting Lab, which is also used for most of the Lighting Design Classes.
