Shaping Up

Things are begining to take shape in the control room :) It's cool to see the equipment going in. Each day, the stack of boxes in the hall is getting gradually smaller while the room itself is looking more like "home".

It's been a few days since my last post because of Daktronics training. It was a good session, and actually a day longer than originally planned. We have enough now to really start working on creative content to get things lighting up the right way. There are still some issues and a ton of growing pains, but we're coming along.

Since the last post, the router panels, audio monitors at each station and workstation (desktop/GUI stations) have been mounted.

July 16: Router, Intercom & Audio Monitor placed in the first bay (from the left), source monitors in the second...

July 16: By the end of the day, individual GUI monitors were mounted.

July 16: Also by day's end, the mounting brackets for the monitor wall were in place. Power strips are ready to go, as well. Note that one of the Marshalls (used in the consoles) is already living in it's place on the monitor wall, as well.

July 17: Early on, the consoles were supplied with power. Here you see a station that utilizes two router panels (for source selection) and an intercom panel is sandwiched in between.

July 17: Other items were wired up and turned on, including the Marshall monitors (glowing blue here). Signal and power have been run to the workstation GUI monitors, but the machines they connect to have yet to be installed in the racks :)

July 17: A closer look at a powered up console.

Next week, the monitor wall monitors should go up. That will be a fun picture day ;)

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
