Rental and Staging AV Market Solutions

Live events are often costly and you will only get one chance to make that first impression. Equipment for those events are typically rented, as a one-off show does not necessarily justify a big investment in equipment, which makes Rental and Staging services a substantial segment of the A/V market.


Rental & Staging industry players rely on Lightware equipment for their reliability, built-in segment-specific device features, and probably the best support services in the A/V manufacturing industry.

It is one of Lightware’s core values to develop and improve our products by listening to the voice, and delivering to the needs of the industry, which is especially true when it comes to Rental and Staging. We offer a wide range of equipment to meet the great variety of their audio, video and signal management needs.

Lightware devices feature services easing installation and serving secure and safe operation during the show. Most features are controllable from the front panel for quick and easy setting on the scene. MX series feature redundancy options for power source, with n+1 and n+2 redundant power supplies, possibly connecting to separate power lines.

Our latest ’rental edition’ MX2-8x8-HDMI20-Audio matrix is capable of splitting the HDMI 2.0 signal into two, HDMI 1.4 signal halves, compatible with dual-HDMI-input projectors and other sinks. Similarly to this matrix, the HDMI20-OPTC-TX/RX220 Pro optical extender pair is also capable of signal splitting. The RX model of the latter device has side and top threads for mounting on truss bridges, and features ’dark mode’ to mute feedback LEDs and remain dark during performance near the stage. Both TX and RX models have a rugged, reinforced chassis with attached loops on front for easy handling and bump protection.

Our devices are designed and tested to qualify and exceed specifications and also customer expectation. Most parts are industrial grade with gold plated PCBs to ensure reliability and long lifetime.
