  • Lighting

Established in 1988, Artistic Licence specialises in lighting control, with a broad range of products that are all designed and manufactured in the UK. Our range also covers test equipment and data distribution, and we are a major supplier of OEM solutions worldwide.

For project work, our expertise enables us to offer custom-build solutions where no off-the-shelf product would be suitable. We routinely work with all the open lighting protocols, including Art-Net (which we invented), sACN, DMX512, RDM and DALI.
