Our sets are becoming more and more dependent on large and complex Lighting Control Systems. Individual control of over 1000 different lights is becoming common. These complex lighting control systems can save hours of set up time each day when they are installed and managed properly. This course trains the Set Lighting Technician how to properly install, use, and maintain DMX networks. This information is the cornerstone for all of the lighting control systems required by the demands of our productions, both large and small. Also covered will be equipment function, selection, and maintenance for Opto-Isolators; Mergers; and DMX cabling. This class is primarily geared for those people who will be installing the DMX network. This class covers topics that are listed as being in the content outline for the ETCP Entertainment Electrician Certification Exam.
