Our industry is very exciting as it is filled with many different types of technology. Automated lighting programmers are skilled at to not only operating high-tech consoles and new robotic lighting fixtures, but we also find ourselves playing with virtual simulations of the real world. Lighting visualizers have come a long way over the past 20 years and now provide nearly realistic looking emulations of the lighting and production on a stage. However, there are still challenges involved when working with a visualizer, and it is very important for a programmer to be aware of the pros and cons of the technology.
