Luminex Successfully Networks with AC-ET for Training Events

UK – A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET), in conjunction with Luminex, has hosted a number of sell-out network training events specifically for lighting, video and audio professionals.

Held at AC-ET's training facilities in High Wycombe and Leeds, industry experts have been teaching the fundamentals of networking, plus the specifics of networking and data distribution for professional lighting, audio and video applications.

The courses provided the ideal chance to learn more about Luminex products, including the new LumiNode next generation Ethernet to DMX processor and the Araneo software tool that provides a complete graphical overview of a Luminex Gigacore Network.

Application specialists from Luminex led the courses: one focusing on networking for lighting and video and the other on audio applications. Both saw a massive demand throughout the year, with each date selling out within days and generating a long waiting list.

Both courses covered network fundamentals and GigaCore switches, with the lighting and video training also encompassing lighting protocols, converters and splitters, and video over IP, whereas the audio session looked at the specifics of networking and data distribution for professional audio applications, including the use of Milan-AVB.

Those lucky enough to secure their places for the sessions have come away with a far greater understanding of networking, and found the training incredibly useful.

Jack Thompson, technical director at Manchester International Festival, commented: “The course content was very good, with an excellent instructor who knew all about his product and how it works in the real world. He was able to work with people at different levels of competence all at the same time.”

Ian O'Donoghue, head theatre technician at the University of Warwick said: “The course was really useful and was set at the right level. I felt very welcome and we were looked after well.”

“Top job by AC-ET for putting on these courses.” Added Sam Whitby, lighting technician for DPL Production Lighting. “If any other training becomes available please let me know, however for now I am more than happy!”

“We are very happy to be able to work together with Luminex to provide these training courses,” commented Neil Vann, Luminex brand manager for AC-ET. “It is fantastic that our Luminex training sessions have become so popular, and to meet the demand we are already looking ahead to add more dates in 2020.”
