Webinar - Better than a 20' Pole: Controlling your lights remotely with Erin Giblin, ETC

With social distancing becoming the norm, and requirements for personal onsite becoming more and more strict, what opportunities are there to control your lighting system remotely? In this session we will go over the concepts and challenges for setting up a lighting console or architectural controller for remote operation and maintenance. This class will include real world examples of systems that are designed for this type of control, presented by the designers and operators. We will go through system layout as well as looking and some fun photos and videos of the end results.
