2.3 DMX output addresses
All control signals from the Scancommander are on DMX 512 and are sent on
a two conductor cable to stage. Therefore the single scans need to have a
DMX start address to know, to which data they must respond.. Usually this
address can be selected by a DIL switch directly on the lamp or at their DMX
interface.
On the SCANCOMMANDER these addresses have to be set for the individual
scans.

2.4 Movement direction on DMX mode
The movement of the beams can be controlled via two of the encoder wheels,
an external tracker ball or computer mouse. To reach an ergonomic handling of
the trackerball it is possible to do a course adjustment of the movement.

2.5 Initializing of stage
Basic features of movement control
Optionally movement and positions of the light beam are handled as X/Y
coordinates on stage. The value 0/0 corresponds to the middle of the stage.
Changing the X value relates to movement right or left, changing Y moves
between front and backside of the stage. This way of calculation makes it
necessary to do an initialization before starting the programming of scenes,
but gives you a list of advantages
- Programs can be easily transferred to a new stage setup.
- On followspot mode via trackball all beams stay together.
- Moving the trackball or mouse in one direction will move the beam of all
lamps the same direction.
To be able to use these advantages, the stage has to be "shown" to the single
scans. This initialization is done by pointing with the beam to the 4 corners of
the stage. (The most exact way to do this initialization is by using nearly
closed iris or small dot gobo >> see chapter 3 Direct access.)

3. Direct access
Actual Scan Selection
There is constant direct access to the single functions of the scans. Any
function can be controlled for a number of scans simultaneously. The LED´s in
the Scan Selection block determine, which of the 16 scans will be affected.
The "CLEAR" button beside the "SCAN SELECTION" block clears the selection,
the "INVERT" button inverts the actual selection.
"CLEAR"-"INVERT" selects all 16 Scans.
As long as the OPTION button is held down, the lower display button on the
left side changes between the SINGLE and MULTI mode.
SINGLE:
Only one scan can be selected at once. All other scans will be
deselected automatically.
MULTI:
It is possible to select more than one scan at a time to be
controlled simultaneously.
3.1 Scan groups and brightness fader
Combinations of scans, which are mostly used, can be stored and recalled as
groups. In the same time, the brightness master underneath the group buttons
are masterfaders for the brightness of this combination of scans.
SCAN Selection
Selection of the scans, which shall be stored as one
of the groups.
STORE
Keep button pressed, select "SCAN" to be displayed
on white background,
Programming of scan
groups
...and simultaneously press...
Group button A-H
Stores the actual scan selection as group.
If you accidentally release the STORE button before pressing a group button,
press two times QUIT to return to the TOP MENU.
Group buttons, when pushed during standard running mode, always overwrite
the actual scan selection.
! Attention !
To have one or more of the scans lighting the stage, at least one of the group
brightness faders has to be up. Even during movement initialization there will
be no beam on stage as long as all group brightness masters are at zero.
! Attention !
The function "MASTERS ALL 100%" at the SETUP menu will set all master
faders to full on. This makes sense during playback of synchronised shows
but should be switched off during standard operation (white background).

3.2 Basic scan functions
3.2.1 Tuning with the encoder

The encoder always controls the scans, which are
actually selected in the selection block. Their numbers in the display list are printed inverted and the
values are modified when the encoder is used.
Encoder 1, 2 and 3
The three lower sections in the display show the
functions, which are controlled by the encoder. The
inside part of the encoder controls the function step
by step, the outside ring offers a fast and course
adjustment. (16 steps per increment).
NOTE:
As it is now possible, to select small beams and to control movement scan by scan, the stage initialization
should be done before going on with programming. This is important to have the chance of transforming
programs to new stage setups. (>>Movement initialization)

3.2.2 Programming of presets
PRESETS
Using the Encoder Wheels, all functions are controlled in 256 steps. But for
most of the functions there are special values, which are used all the time, like
the single colours on the color channel. These values can be stored together
with a label as PRESETS and can be recalled by the push of a button later on.
On direct access the 12 display sections will show these names. For most of
the scans these PRESETS are stored internally and are downloaded when
doing the lamptype setup. If these PRESETS are not available for the actual
registered lamp type, or they are not right and have to be adjusted, you have to
swop to the PRESET ADJUST menu.
QUIT button
The display switches to the TOP MENU.
PRESET
The display shows the actual output values and the
headline "Adjust Preset".
Feature button
Presets can be programmed for all functions. Also for
PAN/TILT, positions can be prepared as presets.

Feature Button
Selects a function for direct access.
Display buttons
In direct access mode preprogrammed PRESETS
can be recalled by their button. Similar to the control
via encoder, only the scans which are actually
selected, will change to the new value.
Display list:
If the actual value of a scan was selected by recalling a preset, the list will no
longer show the channel value, but will show the preset name.
Encoder 1 to 3
Modifications via encoder:
- Any modification via the encoder will change the
display to show the actual output value. If the value
returns to the preset value, the display returns to
show the preset name.
Preset X-Fades
Slow x-fades to a preset value:
X-FADER (FEATURE SELECTION BLOCK)
The x-fader in the feature selection block sets the
time for the slow fade. On any recall of a preset, while
this fader is raised to a value above zero, the channels
will slowly change from their actual output value to
the value stored in the preset.
When recalling a preset for a switch function like
gobo, this fader should be down, otherwise the gobo
wheels will slowly change to the selected new gobo.

3.3 Movements
PAN/TILT via encoder
and Presets
PAN/TILT coordinates
Controlling the movement works basically like controlling any other function.
Positions, which are stored as presets, can be recalled by their buttons. The
scan selection block shows, which of the 16 scans will go to the new position.
When a preset is recalled with a x-fade time greater than zero, the beams will
change slowly and with a linear travel from their actual position to the new one.
In addition to encoder and preset playback, there are some functions which
are only available for Pan/Tilt.
(two different mode, trackball and mouse, followspot and circle movement)
3.3.1 Movement on direct DMX or on stage calculation
As noted in 2.4 and 2.5 on the Scancommander it can be selected between
adjusting the DMX values of pan and tilt directly or adjusting the stage position
where the scans are supposed to point to. Although it is possible to swap
between this two modes any time, it is highly recommended to select one of
the modes as basic for all programs.
DMX direct mode
Advantages and disadvantages of the two
operation modes
Setting position:
- better control in extreme positions
far outside stage
- on moving head lamps, pan turns
the yokes while tilt turns the lamp
- the bump position of the yokes is
placed at the same side every time
the picture is recalled.
- synchronously control of all scans
within the stage
- linear movement of the beam even
when using moving head lamps.
- reaching the bump position of the
yoke, the head lamp turns around.
Movements on fade:
- depends on mechanical construction of the lamps
- linear movement of the beam within
the stage area
Adaptation to new stage setups:
- scans have to be mounted exactly
to the same position as before or
- all presets have to be adjusted
- adapting all programs by initializing
the 4 corners
- adjustment of single presets
Follow mode:
- not possible

Special regulations on
stage oriented movement
! Attention !
! Attention !
- During stage oriented movement mode the value in the display reaches from
-99 to +99. The centre of the stage corresponds to 0/0, the corners have values
of +/-25. Values outside +/- 25 mean, that the beam is actually outside the
stage.
- When a preset is recalled with a x-fade time greater than zero, the beams will
change slowly and with a linear travel from their actual position to the new one.
- If the movement initialization was done correctly, any combination of scans,
which shows the same values in the display, meet the same point on stage.
Outside the stage, this effect will loose its accuracy.
Programming presets for Pan/Tilt makes movement control very handy.
44 positions on stage can be preprogrammed and recalled by their button.
In addition it helps to return to a well defined point if the operation via trackball
gets confusing.
During any programming of positions make sure, that the circle radius is set to
zero. If only the circle speed is zero, but the radius is greater zero, there is no
circle movement visible, but the radius is still valid and will cause an offset on
the programmed positions.

playbacks
The working mode is stored within any preset, memory, chaser or sequence
step. The playback of this programs automatically restores the according
working mode. Fades between two positions with different working mode
always run in DMX direct mode.

3.3.3 Transforming memories to a new stage
Transforming stage mode data:
Transforming programs to
a new stage setup
All movement positions which are stored as presets, memories or scenes, are
automatically adapted to a new stage setup, as soon as the movement
initialization is done. Therefore it is important to have the first movement
initialization done before any program is stored. If the programs had been
done on the basic of an exact initialization, no further adjustments are
necessary. The same initialization is necessary, if the mounting position or
height of a scan has been changed.
Adjusting preset positions
Preset positions can also be adjusted, if the point they have to hit on stage,
has moved. If, for example, the position of the keyboard player has moved,
only the preset "KEYB." has to be adjusted, and any memory, chaser or
sequence step, which was programmed to meet the keyboard, will recall the
right position.
Transforming direct DMX mode data:
Transforming direct DMX
memories
20
If programs are stored on direct DMX mode the easiest way is to adjust the
lamp position as exact as possible.
Otherwise all programs, which are based on preset positions can be transformed by simply adjusting the 44 preset positions. Stage pictures, which are
not based on presets, have to be tested and adjusted one by one.

3.3.4 Trackball and Mouse
Slow/Fast On/Off
Slow/Fast
On/Off
An Atari compatible mouse or trackball makes control of movement very
comfortable. In standard operation mode, no follow spot fixed (see 3.3.3), the
mouse will always control the actual selected scans simultaneously. Unlike
the control via encoder, the mouse even works when Pan/Tilt is not selected in
direct access mode.
The mouse buttons switch the working modes, the new mode will be displayed
for one second in the centre of the display.
Right mouse button (outer buttons on the trackball):
Switches the mouse on and off, to avoid accidental
movements.
Left mouse button (inner button on the trackerball)
Mouse speed changes between slow and fast.
3.3.5 Followspot mode
Followspot in standard
operation mode
Fixing the followspot
mode
The Pan/Tilt calculation via the stage coordinates has the effect, that all
beams, starting at the same point, stay together during simultaneous operation. Outside the stage this effect looses part of its accuracy.
To have a real tracking of a person moving on stage, it is necessary to do the
movement initialization of the four corners at about 1.5 m height, otherwise the
beams will perfectly light up the feet of the person, but not the body. Therefore
the corners have to be marked by a microphone stand or something similar.
In standard operation mode, the mouse controls the actual selected scans.
Using the EXTRA-FOLLOW feature, it is possible to fix one group of scans to
the mouse. Any change of the scan selection while controlling colours, gobos
or any other feature, will not affect the follow selection. The mouse will go on to
control their scans.
Additionally the scans, fixed to the follow mode, won't be affected by any
memory or playback program.

3.3.6 Circle mode
Circle movement as a
Feature
The feature EXTRA - CIRCLE offers direct control of circle movements. The
actual Pan/Tilt position will be the centre point of the circle movement, radius
and speed can be controlled by encoder. By moving the Pan/Tilt position, the
circle will move simultaneously.
Circle parameters can be stored as presets like any other feature and can also
be stored within memories, chasers or sequence steps.
(>>Programming selective memories).
EXTRA LED has to be switched on
CIRCLE
Direct access to the CIRCLE feature can be done
with encoder or presets like on any other feature. At
least one preset should be prepared with speed and
radius set to zero for all scans.
SCAN Selection
Speed
Encoder 1
Controls the speed. Crossing zero will change the
direction.

Encoder 2
As long as the radius is zero, a starting angle can be
set between 0 to 15 (=F). This helps to start the
different scans at different positions of the same
circle.
Radius
Encoder 3
sets the radius of the circle.
22
Terminating a circle
movement
Any circle movement can only be terminated by turning the radius to zero or
by recalling a preset, which sets the radius to zero.
For keeping control of circle movements and to have the chance to terminate
circles as quick as possible, it is recommended to program a preset for circle
"OFF".
Using the selective way of programming memories and sequence steps, it is
important to have one of the memories S1 to S10 stored as "CIRCLE OFF"
memory. (>> 4.3 Selective memories)
When a circle movement is terminated by setting the radius to zero, the beam
returns to the centre of the circle.
! Attention !
During any programming of positions make sure, that the circle radius is set to
zero. If only the circle speed is zero, but the radius is greater zero, there is no
circle movement visible, but the radius is still valid and will cause an offset on
the programmed positions.

3.3.7 Movement speed
Handling within the
Scancommander
Slow movements are one of the major applications of moving lights. The
MA SCANCOMMANDER controls fades by updating the position about 40
times a second. The intern resolution of the SCANCOMMANDER is 1600
steps for Pan and 1600 steps for Tilt. Using one or two channels per direction,
the Pan/Tilt informations can be sent with 8 to 16 bit accuracy. Depending on
the lamp type, the single steps of the SCANCOMMANDER will be conducted
with individual degree of accuracy.
Lamp types with 10 to 16
BIT accuracy
As the DMX 512 signal features a 8 bit resolution, it offers control with 256
steps. A much improved movement control is possible, if the lamp offers a
second channel for fine adjustment, reaching a 10, 12 or 16 bit resolution.
Unfortunately today only few of the available lamps feature this second
channel for high resolution control via DMX 512.
Lamp types with smooth
movements by creating
intermediate steps
Some of the lamps feature an intelligent logic, which enables the lamp to
make smooth movements by creating their own intermediate steps. Therefore
these lamps show a little delay on slow movement (Hysteresis). Especially
when doing the movement setup, this may cause some loose of accuracy.
Lamp types with a speed
channel
Other lamps require that the speed data are sent on a separate DMX 512
channel. As this speed information has to be set by the user any time there
are changes between fast movement and slow fades or follow spot operations,
it is not very handy.
Setting this speed to maximum leaves no chance to do slow movements, as
the lamps will jump from position to position.
Appendix 1 lists the scans, which will successfully interface with the
MA SCANCOMMANDER. Unused features such as focus or zoom can be
used as a makeshift for lamps which need additional speed information.
Controlling the movement speed of these scans can be done by programming
some selective memories on S1 to S10, which only set a value on to the speed
channels.

4. Memories
Any picture on stage can be stored as a memory and recalled by touching a
button. If the actual position is created by recalling a preset, any modification
of this preset will cause the memory to recall the modified values. Therefore it
is no longer necessary to adjust every single scene when adapting programs
to a new stage setup.
4.1 Programming of basic memories

The display shows a matrix with 16 columns for the
scans and 12 rows for the features. "-" in the matrix
indicates, that this feature is not available for the

4.3.2 Playback of selective memories
Recalling selective memories works the same way as recalling standard
memories, but there are some advantages on programming selectively
Free combination of a number of selective memories:
A memory, setting the position of the scans can join
together with pure color memories or pure gobo
memories. The same color memory may be recalled
during a running chase for movement. Operating in
this way saves time when programming up and saves
storage capacity.
Saving storage capacity:
On a selective memory, only the data of the selected
channels get saved. Using selective memories
enlarges the number of chaser steps possible to
program later on.
Drawback of selective programming:
Using selective programs requires a good overview of
the stored programs. As selective memories affect
only selected channels, the picture they produce on
stage may be different depending on the picture
before.
Example: If the beams are doing a circle and a new
memory only contains a new pan/tilt position, pushing this memory will only move the centre of the
circle to the new position but will not stop the circle
movement. To stop the circle and to send the scans
to a new and well defined position, the new memory
needs to contain the information "Set radius to 00"
and CIRCLE has to be selected in its STORE MATRIX
for all the scans.
To avoid confusion on using selective memories, the
memories S1 to S10 should be programmed to contain
some standard memories with fully selected STORE
MATRIX.
In addition there should be some "Stop" memories
like "Circle Off", which only set the circle radius to 0
for all the scans, or "Shutter Strobe Off".

5.1.2 Programming chaser parameters
CHASER SPEED
STEP FADE
STEP TRIG
SPEED
- sets the time between the different steps
STEP FADE- sets the x-fade time between the single steps
STEP TRIG
- sets the trigpoint between the single steps
As the STORE MATRIX may be different from step to step, the listed parameters
are global for the complete chaser program.
Encoder 2
Speed in Hertz (steps / sec.) and in seconds.
STEP FADE or
STEP TRIG
Inverts the respective block in the display. In case
LINK FADE is selected, the fade time is set in
percentage of the step time
Encoder 3
Changes the selected parameter. The step fade is
allowed to be longer than the step time (SPEED).
This makes sense if the fading channels are not
selected in the next step. Otherwise they will not find
the time to do their fade. (>> selective programming)
5.1.3 Insert or delete chaser steps

Any time a chaser button is selected to store a new step, the step counter will
automatically jump to the old step number + 1. This way the new picture will
be added as the new last step of the chaser.

5.2 Playback chasers
Start a chaser
Chaser programs are recalled by their respective buttons like any other
memory. Each step will control output channels according to its STORE
MATRIX. Selective programmed steps keep deselected channels untouched.
Termination of a chaser
A second push on a chaser button will not stop the chase but will make it start
again with step number one. On the MA SCANCOMMANDER always the
latest pushed button has the highest priority. To stop a running chaser, all the
channels, which are actually controlled by the chaser steps, have to be
overwritten by recalling a memory or preset in direct access.
Partly overwriting a
running chaser
Recalling selective memories may overwrite parts of the channels, controlled
by the chaser. Therefore the chaser looses its priority on these channels,
whereas other channels may still be controlled by the next chaser steps.
A chaser may control color, and movement of the scans. If the
color has been overwritten by recalling a pure color memory or
any color preset in direct access, the chaser will still go on to
control movement, but it has no longer priority over the color. This
makes it possible to do the same movement with different colours.
In the same way a selective memory may control all features of
only one or two scans. Recalling this memory after starting a
chaser will cut down the effect of the chase as it can no longer
control these scans. The rest of the scans will continue with the
chaser steps.
Freezing single channels
Channels, fixed to their value by the FREEZE function, will no longer be
affected by chaser steps. After clearing the FREEZE the chaser resumes
control of these channels.
5.2.1 Enable Chaser
Chaser recall without
going back to step 1
The ENABLE function allows the chaser to resume control of all channels
without starting at step 1.

6. Sequences
Difference between
chaser and sequence
programs
Like a chaser a sequence contains a list of pictures stored as steps. The
additional features of the sequence give the chance to prepare complete light
shows and to recall them by the push of a button.
Individual step
parameters
- Unlike the chaser steps, every step of a sequence may have its individual
parameters. The time, until the next step starts (STEP TIME), the x-fade
time and the trigpoint may be different from step to step.
GO MODES
- The steps may be triggered via GO button, by SOUND INPUT, they may be
recalled by manual x-fade or on automatic mode with an internal timer and
preprogrammed or with an adjusted step time.
Overwriting during playback
- GO MODE, STEP TIME and FADE TIME of the single steps can be set
manually to overwrite the programmed parameters.
Linking steps to
memories or chaser
programs
- Standard chaser programs and memories can be recalled as one step of the
sequence.
- A sequence menu lists the actual and next steps
Programming and modifying a sequence works similar to the chaser programs.

6.2 Playback of sequences
Starting a sequence
A sequence is started by its respective button like any other memory.
By any memory or chaser, recalled by its respective button after the start of
the sequence, the sequence may loose its priority. If the memory was a
selective one, some of the channels may still be available for the sequence, if
it was a standard memory with fully selected STORE MATRIX, the following
steps of the sequence will no longer have any effect on stage.
Red LED in the Step Mode
buttons
A red LED in one of the STEP MODE buttons indicates, how the next step has
to be recalled. The internally stored step mode is indicated by the green
LED´s, but has no effect as long as a red one is on.
Green LED in the Step
Mode buttons
Green LED´s: Only if none of the red LED´s is on, the next step is triggered by
the internally stored step mode.
GO buttons
GO+ and GO- buttons are always working, like the EXTERN GO input via
1/4" jack on the back panel does.
Set Time LED
SET TIME LED: if the LED is on, the x-fade time between the steps can be set
by the fader. The internally stored x-fade time of the steps has no effect.

7.4
Controlling more than 16
scans
Master-Slave Operation
When controlling more than 16 scans, two Scancommander or an additional
Extension unit (see 7.6) can be linked in a master-slave mode. All operations
are controlled via the master board, at the slave only the display and the single
scan selection buttons keep on working.
7.4.1 Installation
Installation for masterslave operation
MIDI OUT connector of the master has to be connected to
MIDI IN at the first slave unit.
More slaves can be added using the MIDI THRU port of the previous slave
The DMX output of all coupled units can be used as separate DMX lines.
Via the DMX input and by patching all scans to different DMX address
numbers, the control signals of more than one Scancommander can be send
on one DMX line.
7.4.2 Starting the couple mode
Activating the couple
mode at Remote MIDI
The first step is to prepare the slave units
REMOTE at the Top Menu
MIDI
MODE SLAVE has to be inverted
The last step is to set up the master board via REMOTE - MIDI - MODE
MASTER. If a SLAVE is used with a software version smaller than 4.20 it is
then really necessary to press the button "Mode: Old master".
The following RESET will send all necessary data from the master to all slave
units. If any slave comes later than the master, it will wait for a master reset
(lowest display button left side or switching off and on the master power
supply).
7.4.3 Working on master-slave mode
As far as the setups are not done before starting the couple mode, the first
steps will be SETUP LAMPTYPE, DMX and MOVEMENT.
Transfer of all functions to
the slave unit
All functions including trackerball movements, group selection and brightness
master are send from the master to the slave units.
Just the single scan selection button have to be operated at the according
units. To make sure that during DMX PATCH and MOVEMENT SETUP only
one scan is handled at a time, all other scans have to be deselected manually.
Instead of a second Scancommander, a 19" Scancommander Extension can
be used as slave (see 7.6).

7.5 SMPTE TIME CODE
SMPTE and EBU Time
Code
Complete shows can be synchronized via Time Code. The Scancommander
works with 24 to 30 frames per second. Selecting the right frame number will
be done automatically as soon as a Time Code signal is supplied or can be
selected manually.
7.5.1 Time Code Network Technics
Time Code synchronization
Time Code generation
Time Code synchronization can be used to recall the programs of one or more
controllers simultaneously to a recorded music.
SMPTE and EBU Time Code are digitally coded time informations, which for
example can be recorded to a separate track of a tape machine. The frequency
domain covers 1 to 2 kHz. Usually this Time Code will be recorded when
preparing the music for a presentation, but it can also be added afterwards by
any sound studio. When using stereo sound it is necessary to have at least a
third track on the machine, for preparing a Time Code show .

Master Fader
As the brightness masters are not recorded on Time
Code, they must be up during playback. Optionally
the SETUP function "MASTERS ALL 100%" can be
switched on.
Periodical playback
Playback of Time Code synchronized shows recommend no further operation
at the Scancommander. Every time the tape starts to send the Time Code, the
Scancommander will recall the programmed events. Even after switching off
and on the power supply, the Scancommander will stay in the Time Code
playback mode.
Overwriting a running
Time Code show
During a running Time Code show, all functions of the Scancommander stay
active and can be used for manually overwriting the program. Only a GO+ or
GO- command of the event list will have no effect, if the running sequence was
started manually. All other events will work as if the according playback
command was selected directly. To stop the Time Code show and go on
manually, the Time Code input has to be switched off. Returning to Time Code
any time will continue the show with the events, stored for this section.
Starting playback in the
middle of a show
A Time Code show can be started at any point of the tape. Using selective
memories or sequences this may cause changes in the effect on stage.
(GO commands do not recall well defined stage pictures, but do just trigger
the last selected sequence to go to the next step).

7.6 The Scancommander Extension Unit
The SCANCOMMANDER EXTENSION is a 19" unit with
- display with 12 display buttons and one encoder
- 16 scanselection buttons,
- cue card slot
- keyswitch
- all input and output connectors of a Scancommander
MASTER-SLAVE mode
Using the Extension as slave it will be switched to slave mode like a
Scancommander. As noted in 7.4 only the display and the single scan
selection buttons will work.
REMOTE operation (DMX, MIDI, Touchboard)
Programs can be set up at a Scancommander and transferred to the Extension via the cue card. The remote inputs can be used to recall the playbacks.
As the Extension unit has no brightness master faders, the SETUP function
"MASTERS ALL 100%" has to be switched on as long as the masters are not
remote controlled via DMX. All necessary steps to start the remote operation
can be done at the Extension unit directly.
STAND-ALONE operation (SMPTE Time Code)
For playback of SMPTE Time Code synchronised programs the Extension
can be used as a stand-alone unit.
(SETUP function "MASTERS ALL 100%" has to be switched on).

8. Dimmer and color changers
Dimmer and color
changer
In addition to the channels for the 16 scanners, the MA SCANCOMMANDER
offers additional 96 channels to control dimmers, color changers or any other
DMX receiver. Like the features of the scans, these channels can be selected
via EXTRA 1 and EXTRA 2 and can be controlled via encoder or presets.
To include these EXTRA channels in any memory, chaser or sequence step,
they have to be selected in the STORE MATRIX when storing any scene.
8.1 Assigning EXTRA channels
Initialization by setting a
DMX address
Because the EXTRA channels control only simple functions, there is no need
for a major initialization process as with full function scanner. The units get
initialized as soon as a DMX address is registered in the SETUP DMX menu.
EXTRA 1 and EXTRA 2 can each address 16 units with up to 3 channels each.
The exact number of channels per unit is automatically adjusted according to
the free DMX channels following the selected address.

Controlling color changers via EXTRA becomes very easy by using the presets.
As with the color channel of the scans the different colours can be prepared
and labelled in their display blocks.
Even controlling dimmer channels via EXTRA is more handy when certain
values are stored as presets. For every EXTRA there are 4 pages offering 44
presets. As the value of the single channels may be different within a preset,
complete lighting cues can be stored as presets.

8.5 EXTRA channels in memories
EXTRA 1 and 2 as part of
playback programs
EXTRA 1 and EXTRA 2 channels like any other scan feature can be selected in
the STORE MATRIX.
By using selective programming, it is possible to program memories or steps,
which control only the EXTRA channels, whereas other memories may control
only the scans and keep the dimmers and color changers untouched.
Programming the EXTRA
1 and 2 via a standard
lighting console
Instead of setting the values for EXTRA 1 or 2 via the encoder wheels or
presets, it is possible to set the values via a standard DMX console, connected
to the Scancommanders DMX input.
1. The DMX output of the lighting console goes to the DMX input of the
Scancommander, the Scancommander DMX output goes to stage.
2. EXTRA 1 or 2 units get patched to the same DMX addresses like the
lighting board channels. The Scancommander will compare the incoming
value and the Scancommander setting for the values and the highest will be
send to stage.
3.

Storing any memory or chaser step will take the DMX input values as set
at the lighting console and will store it within the Scancommanders memory.
The actual values at the Scancommander are ignored.
5. When modifying a picture via EDIT-MODIFY-STORE the Store will work as
regularly.
Playback of the
composed memories
!! ATTENTION !!

After programming the memories, the lighting console can be disconnected
and the memories can be recalled via the Scancommander.
To avoid clearing the EXTRA channel by any STORE operation, switch off
"EXTRA X DMX INPUT" as soon as the lighting console is disconnected.

9.2 Storage of programs
Intern storage capacity of
the SCANCOMMANDER
The SCANCOMMANDER stores all programs internally. The number of scenes,
which fit the storage capacity, depend on the size of the single scenes.
- Memories controlling scans with 4 to 6 channels will need less space than
scans with 12 or more channels.
- Selective memories or steps only keep the data for the selected channels.
This way they also save space.
Therefore the exact number of scenes, possible to store internally, ranges
from 600 to more than 6000. The storage space still available is displayed by
FREE:(......) during any STORE operation. As soon as the limits are reached
(Display shows: NOT ENOUGH MEMORY), some of the unused programs
have to be cleared (see 9.3) or modified to selective programs.
9.2.1 Backup on to memory card
Backup on cue card
Beside the internal storage, programs can be stored externally on to cue card.
Storing on a cue card can be done in sections, for example only SETUP data
or only memory and chaser programs.
The SCANCOMMANDER will accept cue cards of the type ITT Star Card SRAM from 32 to 256 KByte, but as accessories it is recommended to use a
256 KByte card.
The card fits into the slot on the upper left side of the frontpanel, the arrow on
the card has to point to the left side.
BACKUP on the Top Menu

programs can be deleted. Every clear has to be reconfirmed by "OK" or the
process can be stopped by "CANCEL".
By pressing the CLEAR ALL button all programs will be deleted simultaneously and all saved parameters will be reset to default values.
Clear single memory,
chase or step
Clearing a single memory is done by overwriting the old memory with a new
one with completely cleared STORE MATRIX.
STORE button

9.5 Macros
The five macro buttons A to E right beside the cue card slot offer the possibility
to sample different key strokes to one single button.
9.5.1 Programming macros
Start of programming a
Macro
STORE
MACRO A
The display returns to the Top Menu, but a small
display "RECORDING MACRO X" marks that all
following functions are recorded.
All buttons but the single scan buttons
including the mouse buttons, get listed in the macro
ENCODER movements
get only listed within the BACKUP menu
End of programming a
macro
MACRO A
Selecting the macro button a second time closes the
list and stores the macro.
"RECORDING MACRO A" disappears
In case the maximum step number is reached (22-62 depending on the kind of
button), the macro is stored automatically with "MACRO FULL".
Macro playback
Playback of a macro:
MACRO A
Every time the macro button is used, the
Scancommander will repeat all listed operations.
Deleting a macro
!! ATTENTION !!
Macros can not be listed in the display. All special macros, including any
programming or deleting commands in their list, should be cleared as soon as
they have done their job.
Deleting a macro is done by
- STORE
- MACRO

9.5.2 Macro user examples
Simplify the chase programming:
- STORE
- CHASER x
- STORE
must be stored as a macro.
Playback of a few memories (with delay):
The Scancommander can store up to 50 button instructions.
If a macro recalls
- 20 x Memory A/1,
- 10 x A/2 and then
- A/3 ,
so will be first done A/1, after 0.4 second delay A/2 and after
0.2 second A/3 . Longer delays can be realized by programming
chases or sequences.
Exchange of all memories:
A macro is stored :
- BACKUP
- MEMORY
- LOAD
- Encoder on file list start
- Encoder on file
- OK
- QUIT
a second macro loads an other memory file.
With these two macros a complete set of new memories can be loaded
very fast.
Start of a follow action with the actual scan selection:
With the macro
- Pan/Tilt
- Preset "Vocal "
- EXTRA
- FOLLOW
- FREEZE FOLLOW
the actual scan selection can be set to position "Vocal" and at the same time
fixed on the trackerball.

10. Inputs and outputs
Mains (Power Supply)
The Scancommander can be connected to an AC Powersource between 90
and 240 Volt AC (40-60Hz).
The powerswitch is located on the front panel at the top right hand side.
DMX 512 output
The DMX output conforms to USITT DMX 1990. Every unit using this protocol
can be successfully interfaced with the Scancommander.
The DMX Output is optically isolated and exceeds the RS485 Norm.
Pinout: pin 1 = Shield
pin 2 = Data pin 3 = Data +
pin 4 = not connected
pin 5 = not connected
DMX 512 input
Sound input
The DMX Input allows operation of two different functions:
a. All incoming DMX-Data will be merged with the Data produced by the
Scancommander. The highest value takes precedence at the DMX output.
b. To remote various functions of the Scancommander via DMX, e.g. coupling
a lightning desk and a Scancommander. For configuration see “Remote”.
The connector is a Mono or Stereo Phone Jack 6,3mm and the input is
galvanic insulated. Input impedance is ca. 3K Ohm, the threshold is min. 3
mV. The electrical connection is tip and sleeve. The Sound Input controls are
located on the upper left side of the front panel.
Adjustment: Turn the volume control until the left LED begins to light; higher
inputs are limited automatically. To get the best results, the frequency
control should be turned to the left for low frequencies (50 Hz), to the right
for high frequencies (2 kHz). ”Hold-Off” control should be initially set full
left.
To avoid double triggering of a bass drum for example, rotate “Hold Off” as
needed. At full right, “Hold Off” time is a full six seconds.
SMPTE Time Code
Remote GO input
The Sound Input doubles as the Time Code Input.
The electrical connection is the ring + common (galvanic insulated). The input
impedance is ca. 3 kOhm, the minimal level ca.200mV.
The Remote Go input is a 6.3 mm Phone Jack connector.
a) For electrical contact-switch use the ring and tip.
b) For 5 Volt Impulse use the tip and common.
Danger! Maximum 5 Volt at this input; a higher voltage may damage the
Scancommander.
The connection is a 25 pin Sub-D.
eMail: info@malighting.de . Tel.: + 49 9 31 49 79 40 . User's Manual Scancommander
73
74
Touch board input
This input is used to control 16 different functions (similar to the DMX-Input).
For the configuration see “Remote”.
Pinout:
pin 1 = function 1
pin 2 = function 2
etc....
pin 25= common
The threshold level is between 4V and 10V. Input impedance is 100 kOhm.
Trackball or mouse
Necessary to work comfortably in the Follow Mode and to set the Pan/Tilt
position.
The trackerball connector is compatible with the ATARI norm. PC compatible
trackerballs will not work with the Scancommander.
Keyboard
Necessary to enter the names of the Memories etc. The connector is a 5pin
Din. Every PC compatible AT/MF-keyboard can be used.
ATTENTION!!
All DMX512 and analogue inputs and outputs must be shielded and the shielding
must be connected to the ground and the case of the corresponding plug.

11. Defining your own Scans
Starting with software version 4.x the Scancommander now offers the possibility to define your own lamptypes. These lamptypes can be then used like
any other default lamptype in the LAMPTYPE SETUP.
This new feature enables the adaptation of the software to new scantypes
which are not listed in the factory setup or lamptypes which has changed
their channel order. All characteristics (e.g. name, type, channel order of
DMX control and brightness master functions) can be programmed for up to
16 free definable types.

functions
FREEPATCH
(For example: The (Lightwave research) Studiocolor needs
channel 16 to be set at 00).
: ----The last function of the filed channel list can be separated optionally from the other DMX channels of the scan.
Later this function can be patched separately. Therefore it
must be selected by the third encoder.
(Example: In the VL5 of Vari*Lite the dimmer is separated
from the other control channels and is controlled by an
external dimmer. By the FREEPATCH function this dimmer address can be entered separately)
If a lamp was defined in the FREEPATCH menu it will
appear in the LAMPTYPE SETUP menu as follows:

Up to now the scan manufacturers do not agree to an
uniform colour mix. Some work with C-M-Y, others with
the R-G-B colour mix. To reach a better control of the
colour mix function the C-M-Y function can be inverted.

Controlling TRACKSPOT via the MA-Scancommander (Vers.4.xx)
1. Changing from Light Wave Research protocol to DMX 512
DMX input to all the lamps is via a 3pin XLR connector, where pin 1 to 3 correspond to pin 1 to 3 of the 5 pin
XLR connector of standard DMX 512. Pin 4 and 5 of the DMX connector are not used.
Attention: the pin order at the 3 pin connector is 1-3-2, whereas the 5 pin connector shows 1-2-3-4-5.
2. Personality setting for high resolution DMX
As the Scancommander enables you to set very exact DMX values, it is recommended to set the Trackspot to
High Resolution mode.

3. DMX address
The DMX address of each scan has to be set
- via the address switches at the backpanel of the lamp and
- at the Scancommanders DMX patch menu.
Unlike setting the address for the Lightwave Research Controller, the address at the lamp has to be decoded
binary.
That means,
switch number 1 has the value 1
switch number 2 has the value 2
switch number 3 has the value 4
switch number 4 has the value 8
switch number 5 has the value 16
switch number 6 has the value 32
switch number 7 has the value 64
switch number 8 has the value 128
Choose any DMX number and patch the scan to this address at the Scancommanders DMX patch menu.
Substract 1 from this number and set to "ON" as many switches as necessary to get this number as the total
of the values.
I.E.: Scan patched to DMX channel 75 in the Scancommander patch menu.
Substract 1 = 74
Switch 7 ON = 64
Switch 4 ON = 8
Switch 2 ON = 2 , all other address switches OFF
To address channels 257 to 512 set personality switch 4=on,5=off, substract 256 and go on like above.
4.Preset values for colors, gobos and shutter
Initializing the Trackspot in the Scancommanders Setup menu by "INIT:SCANS+NAMES+VALUES" will load
the names and values of all colors and gobos.
The motor speed, channel 7 of the Trackspot DMX protocol, is controlled via the SPEED button at the
Scancommander. Using the Scancommander it is recommended to keep this value at "00", as fades can be
controlled via the Scancommanders fade features.

Controlling INTELLABEAM via the MA-Scancommander (Vers. 4.xx)
1. Changing from Light Wave Research protocol to DMX 512
DMX input to all the lamps is via a 3pin XLR connector, where pin 1 to 3 correspond to pin 1 to 3 of the 5 pin
XLR connector of standard DMX 512. Pin 4 and 5 of the DMX connector are not used.
Attention: the pin order at the 3 pin connector is 1-3-2, whereas the 5 pin connector shows 1-2-3-4-5.
(Some of the older Intellabeam 400 don´t accept DMX 512, even when it is printed on the backpanel. For this
lamps please ask for a lamp update eprom at your High End dealer.)
2. Personality setting for high resolution or extended DMX
As the Scancommander enables you to set very exact DMX values, it is recommended to set Intellabeams to
High Resolution on the 7 channel mode, or you may use the 13 channel mode of "Extended DMX".
This gives you:
- better resolution on Pan / Tilt
- direct access to the Gobo and Color spin functions
- access to the homing (via SPECIAL in the SPEED menu) and speed function (via
SPEED 1).
To run the Intellabeam 700 in the 13 channel mode, this lamps need to have the actual software version ML25F
Ver.3.04 (already installed in most Intellabeams 700 delivered since beginning 93).

3. DMX address
The DMX address of each scan has to be set
- via the address switches at the backpanel of the lamp and
- at the Scancommanders DMX patch menu.
Unlike setting the address for the Lightwave Research Controller, the address at the lamp has to be decoded
binary.
That means,
switch number 1 has the value 1
switch number 2 has the value 2
switch number 3 has the value 4
switch number 4 has the value 8
switch number 5 has the value 16
switch number 6 has the value 32
switch number 7 has the value 64
switch number 8 has the value 128
Choose any DMX number and patch the scan to this address at the Scancommanders DMX patch menu.
Substract 1 from this number and set to "ON" as many switches as necessary to get this number as the total
of the values.
I.E.: Scan patched to DMX channel 75 in the Scancommander patch menu.
Substract 1 = 74
Switch 7 ON = 64
Switch 4 ON = 8
Switch 2 ON = 2 , all other address switches OFF
To address channels 257 to 512 set personality switch 3=off,4=on, substract 256 and go on like above.

4.Preset values for colors, gobos and shutter
Initializing the Intellabeam in the Scancommanders Setup menu by "INIT:SCANS+NAMES+VALUES" will
load the names and values of all colors, gobos and some dimmer and shutter settings.
Using the Extended DMX mode, the motor speed, channel 12 of the Intellabeam DMX protocol, is controlled
via the FOCUS-ZOOM button at the Scancommander. Using the Scancommander it is recommended to keep
this value at "00", as fades can be controlled via the Scancommanders fade features.
5. Slow color or gobo changes on the 13 channel mode
To get slow changes of colors or gobos
- set WHEEL 2 of color or gobo to a value about 20 (little before the gobo or color scan function starts)
- set the speed via SPEED 1 to any value above "10"
- recall colors or gobos at the Scancommander without fade, rsp. store the memory with color and gobo set
to "TRIG" instead of "FADE" (=remove ramp on the store matrix)
This procedure will give the slow changes on color or gobo, but will also influence the movement speed.
6. Homing function
When using the Extended DMX mode, the homing function can be addressed via the SPECIAL function in the
SPEED menu of the Scancommander.
Homing the lamp is done by setting the SPECIAL channel to 50% for at least 3 seconds.
- Press SPECIAL at the feature selection area.
- Select one or more scans via the SCAN SELECTION buttons
- Set the values to "00" via the Encoder wheel
- Set the values to "50" via the Encoder wheel.
(If the display is set to hexadecimal showing...,09,0A,0B..,the 50% value corresponds to 7F)
After 3 seconds the scans should start their homing procedure.

DMX input is via a 3pin XLR connector, where pin 1 to 3 correspond to pin 1 to 3 of the 5 pin XLR connector
of standard DMX 512. Pin 4 and 5 of the DMX connector are not used.
Attention: the pin order at the 3 pin connector is 1-3-2, whereas the 5 pin connector shows 1-2-3-4-5.
All personality switches stay 0, just setting address switch 8 to on will change to DMX.
2. DMX address
Unlike Trackspot or Intellabeam, the Cyberlight
switch 8 always has to be on for DMX 512.

-Step 1:
Dimmer channel at full (FF)
Special channel at full (FF)
-Step 2:
Dimmer channel at Zero (00)
Special channel at full (FF)
-Step 3:
(must occur within 3 seconds)
Dimmer channel at Zero (00)
Special channel at 25% (3F) for "Home"
Special channel at 50% (7F) for "Shutdown"
or
As this three steps have to be done within 3 seconds, please store this settings as presets (see cap 3.2.2 of
the Scancommander manual). The brightness Master of this scans have to be up during this steps.
After further 3 seconds the scans should start the selected function.
