I'm John, I work the lights in a high school in southern Connecticut. I've fallen into a rather unfortunate situation where I haven't been taught much about my system as the formers who decided that they had nothing to do with the crew this year and never allowed me to actually see how things work. I've been taking the, "I wonder what this does" and "I hope pulling the plug will reset it" approach with many things. I have a Colortran i96 rack as well as a Colortran Innovator 48/96 console with a Remembrance panic/entry/rehearsal board that got bashed in when sets were being moved around as the genius who installed our system put it on the stage. A few things that I'm looking for some help with is finding a new rehearsal board to install that will still allow me to have the entry and panic system that I have in place now. Currently if I am not able to get into our booth, I need to bang the panel against the wall (no joke) in order to make it work. It seems to have gone into a state of submission because it no longer turns the house lights on in the middle of a show which is a great bonus, but because it's in such a terrible state, we are unable to reset what lights are turned on by our panic/entry system. Our custodial staff has requested that one of the buttons (the one that is locked in our control booth) turns on all of the lights (including stage lights, which I don't think is necessary), but being the state that our Remembrance board is in, is impossible. I have been looking at some new rehearsal boards and the problem is that I'm not sure how to integrate something like that with our current panic/entry system. One other thing that I've been trying to understand is how I could take advantage of the ColorNet port that I have on my Innovator console. What I would ultimately like to be able to do is control the lights by either a hand held wireless remote or wirelessly by my laptop (I have a mac). I am personally going to invest in the Enttec open dmx usb box so that I definitely can run things on my laptop but I'd like to be able to out of the control room and controlling things from FOH. I am fortunate in the fact that we have just gotten a new advisor as our old one wasn't able to be around when we needed him, no fault of his, it just wasn't practical. A teacher at our school (one who teaches robotics who has actually fixed some of our clear com boxes in the few weeks that he has been our advisor) is now the advisor and being that we have a new advisor, he is getting a chance to have meetings with everyone who is important to finally get things fixed! Money is probably going to be able to trickle into the program and we are getting listened to with things that need to get done. All that being said, if you have any suggestions to solve any of my problems, I would love to hear them as they will probably get done. Thanks!
