ETC students get hands-on in Taipei

Published: ASIA

TAIWAN: ETC’s latest round of training in Taiwan attracted a total of 100 students and industry professionals from across the Island. Held in collaboration with the National Taiwan College of Performing Arts (TCPA) and ETC’s dealer, Ming Li Engineering & Consultant Co Ltd (MLEC), two sessions were conducted at TCPA’s Chungsing Hall and covered the manufacturer’s Ion lighting consoles. All the attendees received a certificate upon completion of the training and seven participants won an ETC nomad mini-controller.

The sessions were led by the senior technical specialist from the National Theatre and Concert Hall, Kuo Chien Chung, with ETC Asia’s senior engineer, KK Yeung providing hands-on training assistance. ETC, MLEC and TCPA together provided 16 Ion consoles, with three to four participants per console. The training content was based on the Ion Level One workbook and basic lighting concepts, including networking, DMX512, an introduction to Ion and essential programming functions, such as patch, cues, playback, submasters and effects.

Prior to the training, there was a demonstration of the manufacturer’s latest LED products, including ColorSource fixtures and Source Four LEDs luminaires. ‘The demo not only showed ETC’s new LED technology, but it also let attendees understand that the more familiar you are with console operation, the better you can control your show,’ described Desmond Yim, regional sales manager for ETC Asia. ‘With the right skills and experience, you don't need to worry about how sophisticated new LED technology is or what fixtures are on the rig.’

‘The programme was really successful,’ offered Sabrina Lee, a student from the Taipei National University of the Arts. Ms Lee has learned to use the Ion console from the manual by herself and was happy that she finally got an opportunity to get proper training.

Lan Linhan, an associate professor and the chair of the drama department at the National Taiwan University of Arts, said that the training was rich in content and a good way for students to gain a comprehensive understanding of the console. ‘Each part is interconnected, which helped me better understand lighting control and get a clear view of what we need when choosing equipment for the department,’ explained Ms Linhan.
