Founded in 1979
in Pickering, Ontario, Canada, Light
Design Systems began producing it's first lighting control system. With a
strong knowledge of theatrical and touring needs, LDS set out to design and
manufacture a compact and inexpensive line of lighting control equipment.
The need was never greater as the Canadian market had little to offer. With
this in mind, the overall concept of a simple but reliable product line was
put into play. The first product released was the SP-1500 foot switch system.
An 1800 watt/3 channel foot operated switching system, this product was received
with open arms and sold very well based on its ease of operation and quality
construction and design. The success of the SP-1500 led to the immediate
design and release of the DS-3000, a 6 channel dimming system. This system
was to become the most common lighting control system in Canada. The DS-3000
system consisted of a 6 channel, two scene control console with two 1800
watt/3 channel packs. All cables were provided making this a turn key system
for the end user.
LDS soon realized that a larger and
more advanced stage of lighting control and dimming was needed and set out
to build what would become the single most popular club and small tour dimming
and control system in the country. The DR-12000, the LC 12-8 and the LC 24-14.
The DR-12000 rack mount dimmer is a 12 x 1.2K analog dimmer. It was built
to be operated by the LC 12-8 (12 channel / 8 scene console) or the LC 24-14
(24 channel / 14 scene console). Again with the concept of simple operation,
these units flourished and became the industry standard for 12 & 24K
With very little or no warranty problems,
LDS gained the confidence of the Canadian & International markets and
soon became the reputable company it remains today. This new found stability
led to many custom and high profile projects. Still today, LDS does custom
or special projects in many fields of the entertainment industry.
