Geeze, enough with the late episodes, Craig! I was prepping a new rig and programming video and lighting alike and had two shows this weekend. Audio quality and editing skill in this episode: 6/10. Sorry. I'm on the road.

Anyway, Episode 010 is hot off the proverbial presses and it's low-key but high in content. And fiber.

  • Chauvet teases us with the new Maverick Series
  • Martin teases us with the MAC Axiom Hybrid. What does it do? We can't tell you, but it will be awesome.
  • Things we carry in our gig back, and we mention a new tool: The KRE Can Wrench: http://kreelectric.com/cam-wrench/
  • Emails! So many e-mails
  • Lighting Term of the Day: ACLs
  • The Lighting Quiz: what year were Vari-Lites introduced?

    • Advance your show, especially in Europe.
  • The Robe BFML
  • A tragic and preventable accident in an Italian theatre
  • Lighting Design, Console, and Programming Theory: color!
  • Controlling via MIDI and other goodies. A link to a guy who built a console thing! http://consoletraining.com/attacking-ma2-analog-remotes/
