SPS has a library of materials we prepared for staff and client
training over the years and are making them generally available
to the live event support industry. You'll find articles about
the equipment we provide and the worksheets we use to design live
shows which you can download and print if you wish. These materials
are suitable for viewing on handheld devices or printing. We hope
these materials will be useful for the industry and invite questions
and comments about how we can make these better or more accurate. This
is just a small sampling of things to come as the migration from paper
to the web is time consuming process, so feel free to check back
from time to time for new additions.
In addition to training manuals for the controller devices, there are
controller schedules, along with patch, chase, scene, step, and fixture
schedules provide the top level view of how a controller is set up and
what fixtures it controls. Patch schedules document how dmx channels have
be reassigned to faders. Chase and scene schedules list out what each looks
like or does. Step schedules document the specific settings for chases and
scenes. Fixture schedules are either blank fill-in forms or provide detailed
information about how a specific fixture operates and are used to further
document controller details.
Other information available includes general information about lighting truss and
some wiring diagrams.
If you find these materials useful, you may freely link to them as you wish
and sharing them on social media is encouraged. Each item is specially set
up for convenient sharing.
Forms are designed for printing using Microsoft Edge browser.
