Twenty-three attendees, comprised Broadway designers, engineers and technicians from the various New York shops, attended the sessions held in A2D's newly renovated demo suite located at 1674 Broadway in the heart of New York's theatrical district.
Morning sessions were on basic SD7T architecture and history, with in-depth coverage of the desk layout, features and functionality, and DiGiCo's high-density Stealth digital processor. Afternoon sessions were devoted specifically to SD7T theater software and cueing.
"With the technologies that have emerged, we see a real need for constant training," said Autograph partner, Nigel Olliff. "The hardware may stay the same for a while, but the software is constantly being updated and refined. As a distributor, we see it as our responsibility to offer in-depth training, mentoring and specialist knowledge to the theater community. We had a great group over the three days and were able to take back to DiGiCo software designers many useful ideas for the next software release."
Plans are underway for the next session in mid-January 2011. Interested parties should contact Lew Mead @ lew@AutographA2D.com
