New PDF release: Control Systems for Live Entertainment, Third Edition

By John Huntington

While you are attracted to how keep an eye on platforms and machine networks are utilized in all components of dwell leisure, regulate platforms for stay leisure is the usual reference. With a special mixed specialize in desktops, networking, artwork, and perform, this e-book deals an in-depth exam of regulate for lights, lasers, sound, , level equipment, animatronics, lighting tricks, and pyrotechnics for live shows, subject matter parks, theatre, themed-retail, cruise ships, museums, targeted and different occasions. This new version additionally contains: .expanded emphasis on networking know-how and perform .complete insurance of vital new protocols similar to ACN and RDM .completely revised and up to date case reports .a thoroughly reorganized and revised constitution Drawing on his vast adventure within the box and lecture room, writer John Huntington truly explains every little thing that is going on behind the curtain and contained in the machines to carry daring visions to lifestyles in real-world settings. * Author's web site is a dwell, up-to-date source for this viewers - visited from keep an eye on structures technicians in international locations around the world! * platforms previously solo at the moment are being networked jointly and audio and lights techs desire this information * Loaded with reasonable examples that readers love

This approach generally makes interrupt protocols faster than straight polling protocols, since the master needs to service nodes only when necessary. Internal computer busses often work in an interrupt-driven way. Peer-to-Peer In modern applications, the control intelligence is often distributed throughout a system, and intelligent controllers or “peers” are connected using a network. In such a system, each peer device has equal access to—or even control over—other devices in a system. This control structure allows for powerful and sophisticated systems, but also can be more complicated to design and troubleshoot, since contention issues—who gets control over the system at any given time—must be resolved by the system designers.

A tremendous amount of intelligence exists in this human-controlled, event-based system. The explosion effect is triggered on the event—the actor’s line—regardless of when in time he says it, where he is standing, what day of the week it is, or the phase of the moon. Event-based systems allow performers to vary their timing, improvise, and make mistakes. In our example, if the performer is having a bad night and simply runs screaming off the stage without saying his line, the stage manager can improvise and still trigger the explosion effects by giving the go 16 Part 1 • An Introduction commands.
