Questions will be answered throughout the workshop via the chat feature and if you have any questions you’d like to ask in person, those will be answered after Mark finishes talking about all the different aspects of lighting design.

    Are you bored and want to learn more about tech?

    Hi everyone!!

    I hope that you’re all doing well and getting through these tough times.

    Since there’s not much to do outside of our houses, I wanted to give you all some resources that could be useful if you’re interested in learning more about tech and how it all works. Below I’ll attach some links for everyone to check out and a description of what it is. If you have any questions about anything in particular or want specific resources that aren’t listed below, please reach out to me at jared.doran@theloftstage.org with any questions and I’ll get back to you very quickly as I seem to have more time on my hands recently…

    Easy:

    Medium:

    • Dante Certification Level 1: audinate.com/certify
      • Learn the surface of how audio is transmitted over ethernet
      • You will need to create an account
      • It is a learning curve and there is a test at the end
    • EOS training: https://courses.etcconnect.com/ 
      • Basic knowledge of how to work and operate the lighting console at East Ridge (as well as any other EOS console)
      • Enroll in the EOS Family Level: 1 Essentials course frist
      • If interested, you can do any of the other ones that look interesting but I would recommend doing Level 2 and Level 3 if you want to go further
      • You’ll need to create an account
      • There are tests and quizzes but they are pretty easy

    Advanced (I would only recommend if you really want to go in depth on information. These courses are very lengthy and highly advanced)

    • Q-SYS Training: https://training.qsc.com/course/view.php?id=7
      • Q-SYS is a highly flexible and scalable audio and control solution
      • These videos are highly advanced and you’ll need to download the software to follow along
      • In order to get the certification, you’ll need to pass may quizzes as well as take a final exam that includes creating your own Q-SYS design and submitting it for review
      • This system is used in the gym at ERHS and we are going to implement it district wide for paging control
    • Dante Certification Level 2 and Level 3: audinate.com/certify
      • Go in depth about Dante network protocol and learn advanced systems as well as how to troubleshoot
      • You will need to create an account
      • Tests are very detailed and lengthy

     

    Again, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or if you’re looking for specific resources!
