    The automated lighting programmer must have many skills beyond knowledge of simple programming syntax. The position requires that one evaluate each situation to determine the right method of operation. Some productions hire a programmer to handle all aspects of the lighting, while others hire a programmer to bring a lighting designer’s (LD’s) vision to life. Real-world experience with many productions is the only way an automated lighting programmer can become successful. Knowledge, speed, accuracy, people skills, and so on are… View this story

    The plain truth is that digital signal distribution is the best way to go for image fidelity. Part of the reason why analog-distributed images often appear deteriorated stems from the fact that there can be significant line loss in the transmission of the signal. The nature of digital signals allows accurate distribution of the image information, regardless of how many times you split and route the signal. Of course, there are many other factors to be considered, but they all… View this story

    Many audio companies already own a few lights for a basic stage wash, with the knowledge that promoters are willing to pay a bit more for the added service. Tossing a few stands and lights into the truck, and setting them up at the show, can be well worth the effort for the extra revenue. A good way to go about it is to start small, simply providing a few lights for basic stage illumination, and then building up over… View this story

    stagehands
    Teri Hogan 06/28/13 04:47 PM,
    Any time a group of production professionals congregates to chat, the conversation invariable turns to the topic of labor. That’s when the griping and complaining begins. It seems that less-than-stellar stagehands are an epidemic - at least to hear all of the talk about it. Our sound company has nothing but excellent experiences with stagehands because we chose to do address this issue head on. We do business with several labor companies in our general region, and developed a training… View this story

    In the term “A/V” the “V” stands for “video” or “visual”—but it actually refers to anything that is displayed. Sure, it can be video, as well as a PowerPoint presentation, IMAG (Image Magnification) or even just information signage that tells attendees about the schedule of events at the event. Today, the most popular method to display visual information for a large group of people is by using projectors and screens. Projectors come in many shapes and sizes, and they may… View this story

    Video delay, also called frame delay, is a result of the amount of time needed to process a video signal by electronic components. In general, there will always be some amount of delay that is inherent in even the simplest video system. This delay can occur at any processing point in the video path, and the amount of delay created by different system components varies. By comparison, the audio signal that accompanies video content is generally a much smaller bandwidth… View this story

    lighting
    Rob Sayer 03/28/13 12:56 PM,
    The market in LED based lighting fixtures has possibly seen the biggest growth area in the stage lighting industry in recent years. All of the major stage lighting manufacturer have dived into the LED market while cheap imported lights mean that every church, small band or DJ can get a slice of the action too. Rental companies are now expected to stock a wide range of LED units alongside their tungsten conventionals and discharge moving lights and the technology is… View this story

    Ideally, images shot by a video camera would be reproduced on a display device exactly as it was recorded. Unfortunately, this is very rarely the case, as the technologies of cameras and display devices sometimes have their own nuances that slightly, and sometimes significantly, change the performance of imagery. In such cases, you need tools to correct for these abnormalities. What is gamma? Gamma is a function to correct nonlinear performance inherent in CRT (Cathode-Ray Tube) display devices. The CRT… View this story

    There are a variety of protocols used that have been used over the years to facilitate communication of the control signals between a lighting console and fixtures and dimmers and effects. Before moving lights and LED fixtures, analog protocols were used to send intensity information to dimming racks. These systems sent a DC voltage signal ranging from none or 0 volts (off or 0 percent) to 10 volts (full or 100 percent) and were commonly referred to as 0-10 volt… View this story
