Introduction to Show Control explains the practice of interconnecting and synchronizing entertainment technology systems such as lighting, lasers, audio, video, stage machinery, animatronics, special effects, and pyrotechnic systems for live shows such as concerts, theater productions, theme park attractions, themed-retail installations, cruise ship shows, immersive art experiences, museum exhibits, and traditional performing arts.Designed to be read along with Huntington's companion volume Introduction to Show Networking, this book covers topics including cue concepts, triggers and synchronization, cueing systems, show types, and system architectures before moving onto methods of connecting entertainment systems together.An easy to understand set of system design principles is explored, and then a cohesive show control system design approach is introduced and then explored through realistic example systems drawn from the world of live show production.This new book-along with the companion Introduction to Show Networking volume-are the successors to Huntington's now-retired Show Networks and Control Systems (previously Control Systems for Live Entertainment), the industry standard since 1994.
