Part one of our stage lighting networking miniseries is out!

Part one of our stage lighting networking miniseries is out!
More and more stage lighting fixtures are controllable by Art Net and Streaming ACN than ever before. This connectivity can provide for faster load ins, simpler cabling and faster programming, all you need is to understand a bit of basic networking. We've created a three part series to introduce the essentials of networking with a focus on the elements relevant to stage lighting networks. In this first part of the series we cover the fundamentals of networking in general, covering the layers of a network, basic architecture and the components of a network. In parts two and three we'll cover how to specify and setup a stage lighting network as well as how to troubleshoot common networking issues.

Lasers Live! The Radiator

Lasers Live! The Radiator
Join us for Lasers Live! Our guest this time is Chris Short, one of the creators of the Radiator. The Radiator is a compact yet feature rich laser synthesizer designed and built by an expert team of hardware designers and artists. Their kickstarter met their funding goal in only 9 days and shows no signs of slowing down as they work to bring abstract laser art to a new generation of artists. We'll be talking with Chris about Radiator, how the project developed and where it's headed now that they've met their funding goals, a Q&A session and of course he's going to make some beautiful laser art for us to enjoy, live!
