EMBRACE™ Earmount Microphone
This microphone can be attached to the ear for a comfortable and nearly invisible fit. It is made from flexible, waterproof material that allows it to be adjusted through 360 degrees of motion. It provides clear sound without feedback and is compatible with our existing wireless receivers.
Our current microphones are bulky and transmit signals inconsistently. By using more comfortable and reliable microphones, we allow our actors to develop their ranges without being limited to what they can perform loudly. Ear-molded microphones are the industry standard and allow both our actors and sound technicians to work with technology they may see in a professional setting.
Source Four 360 Front Meniscus Lens
Many of the current lights in the theater are Source 4 360 Ellipsoidal Spotlights. This lens is a replacement for scratched or broken parts from normal wear and tear. It considerably extends the lifetime of a spotlight. We use these lenses as a cost-effective way to refurbish our existing lighting equipment.
ETC Source Four 25-50 Zoom Ellipsoidal Spotlight
This spotlight provides a bright beam while consuming a low amount of power, making it an efficient and flexible option. Its one-handed zoom allows a technician to focus it from a more secure position. It is compatible with a wide range of accessories. At 750 watts, it can provide a strong beam from a distance of up to 35 feet.
These lighting instruments give us a diverse lighting option that can adapt to the needs of the show.
Ikan LiveCom1000 Wireless
These wireless headsets and intercom base allow for real-time communication. Each included belt pack has a battery life of 8 hours on a single charge and utilizes noise-canceling technology to create clear sound.
Students working as technicians often need to communicate backstage during showtimes when speaking loudly or moving between the wings of the theater is disruptive or impractical. These headsets are more reliable and discreet than the walkie-talkies we currently own, and are likely to be found in a community or professional theatre.
Altman 8-Leaf Barn Door
This barn door device attaches to the front of a light to control the amount of light passing through at a certain angle. This allows the lighting designers to create a more focused or diffused beam, or deliberately leave an area dark to highlight another section of the show. The Altman 8-leaf allows for more precise adjustments than a 4-leaf barn door, giving control in 8 distinct directions.
Barn doors are used to create a range of dramatic effects. This allows our lights technicians to create advanced designs with the added layer of control over each light’s field.
