    I was interested in what brand of lights you use. Currently our school runs primarily on Strand for most of our stuff, Colortran for our cyc lights, and a few other odds and ends. Our dimmer systems (for the theater, gym, and studio) are ETC. For the theater and studio we run of a ETC boards, and our gym runs off a Colortran board. What stuff do you use where you work?

    Our complement of instruments consists mainly of SourceFour's ranging from 19 to 50 degrees. We also have a number of Strand Ellipsoidals (23/50 I believe), as well as Strand Fresnelite 6" Fresnels. Dimming is done with ET IPS dimmer strips in both the black box and the proscenium. Control is by an ETC Express 48/96 and an ETC Unison system. House lights are dimmed with ETC Sensor dimmer racks.

    Mostly ETC fixtures (S4's and S4 PAR's with 12 Time Square Lighting 6" fresnels just for the heck of it) in the main space (gymacafatorium) we have an ETC 125 and 3 ten amp smartpack. In our smaller space we have an NSI board and 12 NSI channels.


    I'm not sure if that made sense, its about 1:00 AM here. I'll re-read this in the morning and see if the sentences make sense, like this one.
