    DMX-Controlled Shutter

    I think the Smart Move Vertical will be the right solution, just haven't had time to make it happen yet. The light is question is a 10 degree tube, I did have a chance to play with another 10 degree and for this application I don't think the difference in focus between the shutters and the smart...

    In-house tv monitor upgrade

    Most modrn TV's support both analog and digital Cable and over the air signals. In the US that's ATSC for over the air and QAM for cable. The wiring, splitters and any amplifiers will still work with an new digital QAM signal.

    In-house tv monitor upgrade

    Is signal latency/delay a problem, will people ever be where they can hear both the TV and direct sound from the room? Is 1-2s ok, what about 10-20? If 1-2s is ok look into some sort of QAM modulator, Thor, Contemporary Research, PVI, Blonder Tounge, all make products for this. If you go this...

    EOS Effect Question

    The lights under consideration are abunch of CS Linear's. I ended up making cue loops referencing pallets, will get to see how well it actually works tomorrow night. I've got the cue loops rate on a fader so it's easy to play with that as needed. Thanks Philip

    EOS Effect Question

    I don't know EOS well enough to search for the answer to this question or to fully understand the manual and training videos. I'm trying to build an effect to simulate waves in lights along my side walls. My concept is to have intensity fade up and at the same time take the color from blue...

    Welcome to ControlBooth 5.0

    :) It’s working, thanks. However at least on mobile I wish the bold was even bolder. It’s not a easy to tell the difference as the old font. Ok desktop the difference appears more pronounced Philip

    Welcome to ControlBooth 5.0

    Am I missing some visual indication that a forum or thread has unread post? What used to be bold vs normal text and the little box at the right end of the subject line.

    Can one input be routed to 2 DCA’s?

    You can assign channels to multiple DCA’s. The channel level will the the artimatic sum of the DCA levels. 0 + 0 = 0 0 + -10 = -10 0 + -∞ = -∞ +10 + -10 = 0 .... Hope this helps Philip

    Mixers/Consoles Yamaha Rivage PM7

    The PM7 is a huge step up in price from the LS9, I’m not a dealer but for the console + IO boxes I’d guess you are looking at $70k+ The QL or possibly CL series are a closer fit to what the LS9 cost. Either way contact for friendly neighborhood Yamaha Pro Audio Dealer for a price.

    DMX-Controlled Shutter

    I knew Apollo made stuff but I hadn't thought of using the gobo mover as a shutter, I think it certainly could work. I'll need to play with a light to see how well I can use the regular shutters for the other 3 edges with something like this in the accessory slot. We've certainly thought of...

    DMX-Controlled Shutter

    Does anyone make a DMX controlled shutter assembly that can be used in a S4LED? I've got an application where having one might solve my problem but would rather not go all the way to mover with shutters as I only need control of one of the shutters. The application is at a HOW where we've got...

    Assigning DMX address & EOS Channel numbers

    I've got two venues where I need to build "good" EOS show files this summer. I'm looking for advice for how to lay out EOS channel numbers for both and for one how to plan the DMX address/universe assignment. I not much of a programmer but am the closest we have to an expert "in house". One is...

    To directions to consider: Direct out https://www.directout.eu/en/products/ Makes various MADI routers. Perhaps one of their products could do the fail over in the MADI side I also agree with the others who have suggested investigating using network protocols to manage the change over...

    How many Camlok Connections - NEC 520.54(H)

    Was discussing the limit on the number of mated connector pairs in a power cable with Cam lock cables in mind and decided to go look up the actual code requirement for this which is in NEC 520.54(H) as of 2017. A couple questions: - How to count connector pairs. If I'm plugging into a company...
