Richard Cadena12:00 PM PROTECTING THE STAGE
Presented by Richard Cadena, ETCP RT/CEE and author of "Electricity for the Entertainment Electrician & Technician" and "Automated Lighting: The Art and Science of Moving and Color-Changing Light, 3rd Edition.

Last July, 2017, a singer named Barbara Weldens was electrocuted and died on stage. This is not the first time this has happened. It happened to Agustin Brionili in 2014, and several other people before that. What causes these accidents, and more importantly, how can we, as the entertainment technology community, prevent them in the future? This presentation explores the causes, how to recognize them, and how to prevent them in the future. The session is open to all levels of live event production personnel and is designed to help elucidate safe practices for performers, production electricians, technicians, and anyone involved in the use of electrical power.

Richard Cadena3:00 PM WHAT MAKES GOOD LIGHT?
Presented by Richard "Nook" Schoenfeld Lighting Designer, PLSN Editor
My theory behind which lights are of value to me is simple. All of them. I'm often asked by vendors if I can substitute a fixture for one on my plot. 90% of the time I'm fine with it. I find myself asking the vendor, 'does it turn red like the other one?' Confused they reply, 'of course'. Well, then I have a use for it.

Sure, every designer prefers certain tools in their work chest. But quite often I can use a wrench to hammer something into place if I need to. For that same reason, I can use an old Studio Color fixture as well as a Mac Aura these days. Some of the lights I'd rather not work with, are actually the most expensive on the market. I will always take two less expensive fixtures when offered, for the cost of renting one high dollar fixture…., all day long.

Richard Cadena4:30 PM TESTING TROUBLESHOOTING CONTROL SYSTEMS
Presented by Richard Cadena, ETCP RT/CEE and author of "Electricity for the Entertainment Electrician & Technician" and "Automated Lighting: The Art and Science of Moving and Color-Changing Light, 3rd Edition."

In prehistoric times, neanderthal man used sticks for tools. In the Stone Age, we graduated to making stone tools like hammers and hatchets. Over thousands of years, we developed metal tools like wrenches and screw drivers, and then in the electronics age, we moved on to hardware tools like multimeters and testers. Now we're reaching a level of sophistication where we're using more computers and networking to distribute lighting, audio, and video control and data, so we need better tools to test and troubleshoot our systems. The problem is, how can we troubleshoot data if we can't see it? It's time to move on to software tools. This session explores the current state of technology in control systems, including how to set up, test, and troubleshoot digital control systems.
