Show Networks and Control Systems by John Huntington

E-mail Print PDF

Show Networks and Control Systems by John HuntingtonIf you think you have a handle on control networks, good for you. Computer networking is a big field of study, with a wide range of certifications and career opportunities for those who can keep all the bits and bytes straight when it comes to digital connectivity.

Network administration and configuration is not for the faint of heart, however. With today’s systems, it takes more than just the right IP address and gateway setting. Setting things up properly also now goes far beyond simply plugging the console in and making sure the correct DMX cable is in the right DMX output.

He also talks about how Navigator Systems and HireTrack rose to prominence, and closes with a few general words of advice on how to succeed in the live event business, even if your focus is only on “a very miniscule part.” Add a comment

E-mail Print PDF

Abundant Living Faith Center Upgrades from Projectors to LED VideoThe LED-versus-projection video debate seems long resolved — in terms of luminous firepower, LED clearly won that smack down. Yet that discussion still continues to those extremely budget minded … like a house of worship.

The Capitol Theatre: Restored Grandeur for a Legendary Landmark

E-mail Print PDF

The restored Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NYIt’s a familiar story, told countless times all over America. A 1920s-era theater starts life as a magnet for movie-goers, shifts with the times to become a famed concert venue, but falls on tougher times as the economy and entertainment models continue to shift. After years of under-use, it becomes a banquet hall or civic gathering space.

Lighting Apps

E-mail Print PDF

PLSN July 2014 Buyers Gude: Lighting AppsI recently made a bet with a tech-savvy friend of mine to see who can go the longest without touching their iPhone or other mobile device. The goal: 24 hours. The reward: bragging rights.  I must be weak — I lost in just 10 minutes.  It doesn’t help that the iPhone is constantly dinging for my attention thanks to emails, text, calls — and app alerts from Clash of Clans saying my shield is about to run out. Let’s face it, these tiny little devices are our life sometimes.  Pulling out the mobile is second nature to us, if only just to check the time.  Apps for our mobile devices have been around for a few years now, and most of us are addicted to them.  With more than a million apps on the iTunes app store alone, there is something for everyone. In our industry alone, there are a slew of apps to help us do our jobs and to help take out some of the guesswork.
