Martin Professional / PLDA host DMX Masterclass workshop

5 February 2009 12.00 BST

(Denmark) - On 15 and 16 January Martin Professional and the Professional Lighting Designers’ Association (PLDA) held a DMX Masterclass workshop at the Martin Professional headquarter building.

The event, exclusive to PLDA members, was designed to develop knowledge and skills in the use of lighting control.

As lighting control and interactivity has become a more integral part of architectural lighting installations, training in various aspects of lighting control has become more requested.

The series of workshops included topics such as:

Introduction to DMX
Basic programming of intelligent lighting
PC-based vs console-based programming 
The future of theatrical lighting control
Architectural lighting interactivity
Video control and mixing

The two-day program concluded with a hands-on programming workshop in which each participant programmed a 30-60 second light show to music. Attendees were then presented with a DMX Masterclass diploma.

The workshop was indeed appreciated and feedback was very positive. “I was really happy with the level of information that was given,” said Sharon Stammers of the Professional Lighting Designers’ Association. “It was pitched just right. I think the whole event was a great success.”

Attendee Tim Burrell-Saward of Light Bureau Limited commented, “I think it’s safe to say that everybody enjoyed it and learnt a great deal from the experience.”

The workshop was headed by Martin personnel Frank Hoehn, Paul Pelletier, and Mats Karlsson. Attendees included lighting designers and engineers as well as a representative from the lighting industry press.
