    Powering Moving Set Pieces and Props?

    My 2 cents: We were recently facing similar dilemma for a human-powered parade wagon, with spinning Globe , LED lites, and bubble machine...the plan was inverters/ 12V/ etc. During one of our tests, at home, the power went out in neighborhood & our "battery-backup" started chirping periodically...

    How Do I Learn In College?

    Ditto on all the kudos for Engineering focus...there is so much need & overlap in theater/ entertainment big & small. And far too few folks with the diverse mechanical/ engineering wizardry to repair/ design/ re-imagine gear, especially in smalltowns. As to your studies, take the opportunity to...

    Live event streaming software?

    Lighting iPad App

    We are trying to accomplish the same thing at our small Community College venue...a focus remote for testing/ servicing units from catwalks or stage. We bought the Chamsys MagicQ dongle, recommended by someone here as well as other techs. But now they (Chamsys) says, no it does not have remote...

    Control/Dimming dmxPHONE

    Does anyone remember the 'old' dmxPHONE unit that connected to your lighting console & a cordless phone, giving you a focus remote you could take onstage or to catwalks? Why can we not have something that simple now; without $800 interfaces? *t

    Control/Dimming Lights ghosting when board off

    I'm new to this theatre, & surprised that no one has noticed or is concerned that 1/4 of units ghost when system is off. It is old EC dimming system; how can I get dimmer curve adjusted?
