“Introduction to Show Networking” is an easy-reading book that draws from Huntington’s “Show Networks and Control Systems,” the industry standard since 1994. It covers the basics of how Ethernet networks provide a platform for entertainment control and audio/video media distribution for concerts, theatre productions, corporate and special events, cruise ship revues, wrestling shows, houses of worship, museum presentations, fountain spectaculars—any kind of show presented live for an audience. The book’s bottom-up approach was designed with show technicians in mind, starting with the basics and then moving up through cables, network switches, and layering, and on through Ethernet, and network components like TCP, UDP, IP and subnet masks, all with a practical focus.
Huntington talked about “Introduction to Show Networking” on a recent episide of the Signal To Noise podcast on PSW. Go here to check out the discussion.
