Collapse Quickfire: Loudspeaker Enclosures Intended for Overhead Suspension
FREE QUICKFIRE COURSE


ANSI E1.8 This video is a brief overview of ANSI E1.8, a standard for the structural integrity of loudspeaker enclosures that are suspended overhead. The standard was written to mitigate the risk of flown speaker enclosures breaking and dropping debris. It is geared towards loudspeaker enclosure manufacturers, but being aware of a manufacturers minimum requirements could be beneficial to a user’s work. Viewers of the video are offered instructions on where to download the standard for free, courtesy of ProSight Specialty Insurance.

ANSI E1.4 The video is a brief introduction into the fourth of ESTA’s American National Standards. The standard applies to permanently installed, manually operated but counterweighted systems of stage rigging hardware for the raising, lowering, and suspension of scenery, lighting, and similar loads. It doesn't apply to performer flying, or to raising or lowering people. The video outlines what is in the standard, and tells the viewer where to download the standard for free courtesy of ProSight Specialty Insurance.

Collapse Physics of Theatre: Dynamics of Performer Flying
Registration $70 | USITT Members $50


Building on Physics of Theatre sessions of previous years, this session will quantify common performer flying motion and use that information to determine the tensions in each system component.  We will work through simple pendulum and traveling systems and discuss how torque and center of mass affect these systems.  We will talk about terminal velocity and other limitations and concerns associated with free-fall.  This session is led by ETCP recognized trainer, Verda Beth Martell, and Physicist Dr. Eric Martell for 1 ETCP renewal credit.

    Collapse Basic Truss Theory
    Registration $120 | USITT Members $100


    This class will cover Basic Truss Theory including the components of a truss, the function of each and how those components work as a unit to safely support and transfer loads. This is intended to be the first in a series of presentations on truss and truss systems covering safe use and application, selection, inspection and information on Ground Supported Truss Systems, indoor and outdoor.

    Collapse USITT Forum@Four: Mixing different LED color systems in a single lighting rig
    Registration $10 | USITT Members Free


    Fixture manufacturers have developed LED Color mixing systems that utilize various combinations of LEDs including RGB, RGBA, RGBW, RGBL, RGBAL, RGBAW, RGBAWUv, or even White LEDs using subtractive CMY systems. Ford Sellers (Sr Product Manager for Chauvet Professional) talks us through the various color mixing systems, and then leads a discussion on how best to utilize a variety of fixtures in the same lighting rig. This session will be most beneficial to anyone (Student, Designer, Electrician, or Educator) who currently has multiple types of LED fixtures, or fixtures from multiple manufacturers. The discussion will help answer questions such as: How can Lighting Designers work with multiple systems in the same lighting rig? How can different systems work together, and what can you do to make best use of using multiple color systems easier?
