Where would Sunlite be best suited for? I would use sunlite because it will be useful for Dj gigs because it is very protble and easy to learn how to use it or venue like privet venus and funtios. Where would sunlite struggle to meet requirements? When you are at a big venu and festival you would not use sunlite as u may have to control more then one dmx universe for a show depending on the size of they event.
