What makes us unique?

At Protolight, our number one goal is to fully educate our customers on the available products and their capabilities, so they can make the most informed purchasing decisions. At the core of this education process is having key equipment available for demonstration or rental, to support our clients’ project planning and productions.

Our team provides their unique, honest perspective and insights on products through demonstrations, one-on-one discussions, and social media interaction with customers. We offer start-to-finish support from venue consultation, to technical support and project management.

We also understand that timing is critical in this business – not only that cues must go when they are called, but also that products arrive when they are needed. We take every measure to ensure our clients stay informed of their order status and timeline throughout the process.
