    Zero Latency Video of Conductor

    Thanks for the help so far, it's helping me process ideas. The phat cat system is powered. Caused me some headache last year as one of the power supplies went missing and it uses the oddest thing, 4 pin cable like a color scroller power supply... As the flat panel tv that's hung is in a great...

    I work at a college and my day-to-day is managing the video studio and equipment for the communication department, but my undergrad was in theatre, so when the theatre dept. puts on a musical and wants video monitors for the conductor & cast, I get to cross the street and play in the space I...

    just seeing if there's one last drop of knowledge to be squeezed. first, everything is all installed and working. thank you for the tip of not stripping too close, and the installs do just have the least bit of wire stripped at the ends so they make contact inside only. here's the hitch... as...

    Installs telex wall mount wm1000 install help

    ok, im almost set to do the install and i know where the pins correspond to, but now i'm unsure what to do with the shield and there's an extra bit of wire in the cable that i don't know what to do with... so there's the black, red, white and green cables, and thats the common, low and high...

    Altman Spectra Series LED PAR64 & Leviton/NSI MC 7016 Power Supply Help!

    just found out direct from NSI, you can run both on the 7016... now just waiting for a borrowed complete LED fixture to see if the board is living up to its expectations... and even if not, it's still going in for repair regardless!

    Altman Spectra Series LED PAR64 & Leviton/NSI MC 7016 Power Supply Help!

    this LED unit is to give a hands on experiment with/exposure for our students in addition to the lights we run when we tape our news mag. the 5 hour limit is actually not a problem, as we tape for a max of 3 hours every other week.

    Altman Spectra Series LED PAR64 & Leviton/NSI MC 7016 Power Supply Help!

    i am most intrigued by this "menu" you mention... any chance you remember how to access it? i've got the manual, but don't see a section on the dmx versus multiplex, other than the optional install of the dmx port. thank you!

    Altman Spectra Series LED PAR64 & Leviton/NSI MC 7016 Power Supply Help!

    this is a great idea, thank you! especially if apollo is able to provide us with an inexpensive power supply. we actually don't have open channels on our small board, so this skips that issue as well. i note that the basic version of the magic dmx uses a 3 pin dmx input. for this application, is...

    Altman Spectra Series LED PAR64 & Leviton/NSI MC 7016 Power Supply Help!

    A post weekend update: We have since gotten a 15V, 1000ma power supply, just slightly not the right tip, so a trip to radio shack today (and I'm bringing the lightboard with me to make sure we get the exact right size tip!) and we will try and see if the board will then run dmx when plugged in...

    Altman Spectra Series LED PAR64 & Leviton/NSI MC 7016 Power Supply Help!

    Here is a product page link to the unit we have: https://www.stagespot.com/product/ALT-SS-PAR64/Altman%20Spectra%20Series%20LED%20PAR64 And I double checked, it is indeed a male 4 pin xlr out, and that's the sole cable.

    Altman Spectra Series LED PAR64 & Leviton/NSI MC 7016 Power Supply Help!

    Our department recently purchased an altman spectra led par 64, and we'd love to get it up and running. this particular fixture does not have an onboard power supply, so that is our next step. the fixture has a 4 pin cable coming out, and a power supply like the PDS-375 City Theatrical...

    Control/Dimming NSI MC 7016

    yes, it is the LED indicators on the board itself, but in a related issue, we now have an LED fixture and don't yet have a power supply for it, and i also have to figure out how, if at all, we can set this light up... i have a feeling i'll soon be using the optional dmx on the dimmers and...
