Showcontrol

Showcontrol takes place in almost all current AV installations, attractions and experiences. But what is showcontrol exactly? Showcontrol is the central hub that monitors and controls all aspects such as audio, video, lighting, animatronics, special effects, sensors, etc.. You can compare a showcontrol system with the conductor of an orchestra. The system has control over all events and can execute them at the right time.

Within an AV installation in a conference room or boardroom the showcontrol system ensures that multiple events occur when operating a single button, the projector will be turned on, the correct input source will be selected, the projection screen comes down, the audio system is turned on and the blinding’s will be closed. The user has met all necessary conditions for starting the presentation with a single button press.

When looking at an attraction at a themepark or an experience in a museum quite the same happens, but on a larger scale and with more complex programming. At the start of day untrained personnel can switch all the equipment on by simply pushing a button, control commands and sensors are checked to see if all conditions are met. The technical service department will be noticed automatically when there is some kind of problem. Now the show can be started, this can be done in multiple ways; manually by an operator or the visitor himself, but also automatically using of sensor data.
The playback of the show is fully automated, quality is guaranteed every time again, without the risk of human operator error. The events in the show are programmed on a timeline which ensures that all events (also called cues) occur exactly at the right time. In case of shows where extremely accurate timing is required, timecode synchronization is used, this timecode signal is connected to all essential equipment, to achieve frame accurate timing.

In practice we proceed as follows: The initial concept is translated into a technical design and associated user interface, next the appropriate equipment is determined, with this comes a great deal of knowledge of equipment  and network protocols in combination with the necessary creativity. ShowTheme has extensive knowledge and experience with several showcontrol systems, which system is the most appropriate for the relevant project is reviewed for each specific project. We use, among others, Extron MediaLink controllers, Visual Productions Cuecore and Alcorn McBride show controllers. Finally, the showcontrol system is programmed so all equipment runs perfectly but also assuring the controls are kept easy to use and at a low entry level.

Whether it is a simple meeting room, a multi-scene dark ride or a 4D Theatre, ShowTheme is your designated partner in fields of showcontrol from start to finish. Even multimedia fountain shows, with fountains, music, video and laser projected on a water curtain, lighting and special effects such as fire and CO2, merged into a unique experience, belong to the possibilities.
