J.R. Clancy has partnered with Niscon to develop the SceneControl 5000 Stage Automation Control System. Designed as a single common control platform across a range of stage machinery, the system offers multi-level cueing, submaster control, free and locked groups, and unlimited numbers of axes in a system. Cues, stored show files, and concurrent axes in motion are all unrestricted. The system also offers control of performer flying. Three new operator consoles are available. Password-protected access levels keep unauthorized users out of the system, while offsite secure access allows remote diagnostics.
