welcome to pharos

Buildings and monuments, shopping malls and retail chains, corporate foyers and museums; increasingly people expect to be entertained in locations that were traditionally the preserve of purely architectural lighting. In many venues it is no longer sufficient to light a space beautifully, the lighting is now required to be part of an interactive entertainment experience that must stand out against all the competing presentations to which visitors are exposed.

This bridge between architectural and entertainment lighting, which increasingly utilises LED and video technology, has created a new market that is growing rapidly. Our objective is to provide the control tools that this market requires and to continue to develop these tools based on the feedback of users worldwide.
