About Us – LDS Aluminum Truss Kits and Displays

Founded in 1979 , Light Design Systems began producing products. Aluminum truss, trussing and trade show display booths and finish line systems are now our most popular items. One Light Design Systems first of many successful products was a 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 to compliment the existing range of stage lighting products used for the production and touring industry. The need was never greater as the North American 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 and performed to rave review across North America. 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 systems. 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.
