Today Chauvet is a very successful, transnational producer of event technology. In 1990, when the company was founded by Albert and Berenice Chauvet, they started out by selling Rope Lights.  

As the years went by they started to expand their product range and in 2008 they established their first company owned brand, ILUMINARC. It specialises in the architectural lighting market. 4 other brands joined ILUMINARC over the following years and cover the following areas: general lighting technology (CHAUVET professional), DJ lighting equipment (CHAUVET DJ), trussing (Trusst) and audio equipment (ChamSyns).

The firm is very customer-oriented and has set itself the challenge to continuously improve their audio and lighting devices. They were especially successful with their Maverick series which was released in 2006. These powerful, high-quality Moving Heads are especially designed with big events in mind.
