Followspots

The FPAC has an ETC Expression Console connected to an ETC Response Network Controller. This gives us the ability to turn over control of any of our dimmers to a user’s light board, provided that the following conditions can be met:
The user’s lighting console must have an available DMX output that can be connected to our stage left DMX line inputs. IF the user is controlling digital equipment (such as dimmers, color scrollers, intellabeams, etc.) there must be an extra DMX 512 output, a parallel output that can be used, or the user must bring a splitting device for the DMX output (such as a Doug Fleenor “Opto-splitter”)
We must retain control of our houselights
We need a reasonable amount of preparation time on Move-In day to program our Response Network Controller, unless all relevant re-patch information can be made available to us at least two business days in advance.
