Theatre innovator for over 100 years

Born in London’s theatre land district in 1914 at the start of World War 1, Strand was famous for its lighting by the 1920s, pioneered controls in the 1930s, grew internationally in the 1940s and moved into television lighting in the 1950s.

By the 1970s Strand was making big technological leaps – shifting into automation and rewriting the rules for consoles, while the 1980s saw major advances in dimming and controls.

The revolution in computing in 1990s saw a time of rapid technological growth. Strand created its first digital consoles and software based control systems – direct descendants of those that control today’s highly-evolved, energy-efficient LED luminaires.

Proud of the past but driven by today, Strand continues to develop high-quality products that help you to meet the demands of modern theatre, film and TV, as well as themed environments and architecture.
