Jacob Coakley

The Elation Professional Emulation Touch system works with the Cuety app to turn a tablet into a powerful lighting console. Two hardware interface versions are available: Emulation Touch 1 and Emulation Touch 2. The Emulation Touch devices contain the engine that runs a show, calculates fade times and renders dynamic effects. A standard cuelist-based system for control of up to 64 fixtures with 64 playbacks and 48 cues per playback, it includes a powerful built-in FX generator and fixture library. Both versions include an RJ45 Ethernet port for Art-Net and Streaming ACN (sACN) protocol, as well as an optically isolated DMX-512 port. Emulation Touch 1 is designed for entertainment lighting applications while Emulation Touch 2 is designed for fixed installations and offers extra protocols like OSC, UDP, TCP and HTTP. These protocols enable users to connect to a wide range of third party control systems and show controllers, as well as apps like TouchOSC.

Sennheiser Takes Opera to the Streets of L.A.

Jacob Coakley

Experimental, L.A.-based opera company The Industry is used to pushing the envelope. Two years ago they produced an opera that traveled through L.A.’s Union Station. This year they took it to the streets—literally. Their new show, Hopscotch, is billed as the first opera for cars. The opera takes place inside and outside 24 limosines along three different routes. To make it all happen they relied on Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM, AVX, guidePORT and 2000 Series wireless systems. We’re working on a feature story in our January issue about this—meanwhile, here’s a little teaser to whet your appetite.
