Choosing the right console depends on a number of key factors. Nature of Performance The nature of the performance you are lighting will have an affect on the lighting design required, the control options needed for programming and the amount of time available. Traditional theatre performances generally have a little longer for programming, allowing for pre-determined scenes and sequential playback. At the top end, lighting can be incredibly complex and the options must be available for making minor adjustments and creating subtle effects. During live performances lighting is often required on the fly, so the ability to busk on the console and quickly access lighting scenes and effects is critical. Budget We believe great lighting control products should be available to everyone and not just those with big budgets. Zero 88 understands that customers are looking for great value, and we manufacture a range of consoles that cater for different needs and budgets. P6 Space available Space may sound like a minor consideration but many control rooms are cramped, with space for equipment at a premium. For many applications there is a balance between features required and space available, especially in small to mid sized venues. Consideration must be given to where the console will be located, especially if space for peripheral items such as monitors and keyboards is also required. Level of control complexity Different shows require different levels of lighting complexity and a different mix of fixtures that need controlling. When choosing a console it is important to understand what lighting fixtures and auxiliary items you need to control, and how many of each are required. Control of moving lights and LEDs is particularly important. Whilst many consoles can control these fixtures, simple and effective moving light and LED control can only be achieved by those products specifically designed for them. Level of user experience There are many consoles in the marketplace but matching your console to the level of user experience is probably one of the most critical factors. Too complicated and new users will get confused, too simple and experienced professionals will get frustrated. If your venue has a variety of operators or is only ever used for the occasional production, it is important that your console is uncomplicated so that users can easily access and manipulate the lighting in an intuitive and straightforward way. For users with more experience the console must provide an extensive range of tools and programming options to allow them to quickly create and execute sophisticated lighting designs time after time.

Normally, each dimmer channel will have its own fuse or circuit breaker to offer protection against overload or electric shock. Zero 88 make a range of dimmers including capacities at 6, 10, 16, 20 & 25 Amps. To calculate the dimmer loading – use the volts x amps = watts equation to work out what dimmer channel capacity you need based on the lamps you are using. Dimmers are normally used in blocks of 4 or 6 channels due to the ease of spreading the load across different phases. In terms of the physical connections to the dimmers, there are many different choices available. There are versions with ‘hardwired’ terminals, with an individual socket for each dimmer channel, and also there are ‘multipole’ connectors, which can carry many dimmer channels. The exact choice will depend on your application. Most new systems will use DMX to connect the dimmers and control desk as this offers a flexible, reliable solution. RDM is increasingly popular as it provides remote response and set up information from remote dimmers across the DMX cable.

Trackball A spherical device capable of adjustment of on-screen pointers or position parameters of Moving Lights. Tracking A programming method which allows only changes to be programmed between Cues, rather than full scenes. This method enables broad updates to be made quickly and easily throughout the Show File. Tracking Backup Keys (also known as Buttons) which can be assigned within the software to a number of different functions. Remote Device Management. An industry protocol expanding the DMX protocol to allow bi-directional communication between the Console and connected Devices, enabling configuration and monitoring from within the Console software. A method of backup for Consoles where a second Console (or Offline Editor) is connected to an Ethernet system and synchronises it’s Show File to maintain a constantly running secondary copy of the show. In the event that the first Console is removed from the network (due to a power failure, software failure or other event), the second Console can then resume control of the show with little or no disruption to the operator. Network RGB Universe Multi Function Faders Faders which can be assigned within the software to a number of different functions. Multi Function Keys An interconnected system of control devices which can talk between one another to establish a unified control system.

This can be either Physical (using patch cables) or Soft (using software to adjust DMX Addresses). Pause A function of the Cue stack to stop a Crossfade midway through the fade. A DMX universe is considered to be one set of 512 channels (one DMX output) from a Console. For more channels, multiple Universes can be used. A device used to obtain several separate DMX feeds from the same DMX cable. DMX does not allow ‘Y-splitting’, so a Splitter must be used to split the signal. Faders with scenes stored on them. These can be adjusted by raising and lowering the fader, allowing for Busking. Syntax Keys Keys on a Console which follow your Command Line and adjust according to the functions available at the specific point in the command. P51 A USB device that can be connected to a device to unlock additional functionality. These are generally small devices, similar to a Memory Stick.
