On Saturday February 4th 4Wall's New York location hosted an eight hour class on console programming for members of IATSE Local 52.
The class instructors were Michael Gallart and Teddy Read, both members of the local and experienced console programmers. A total of sixteen Union members sat at eight consoles that were provided for the training by 4Wall and ETC.
"Two programmers sharing the desk helps build confidence and increases awareness as they support each other," said Gallart.
The class was beneficial for both beginning programmers and those already versed in programming basics. Topics included DMX networks, system configuration, language, console hardware elements, user interfaces, macros, running cues, and more.
Gallart spoke of the need for the class, saying, "There is currently a great need for programmers in IATSE local 52. Based on the overwhelming number of requests to participate and the success of this first class, we anticipate holding more training classes in the near future."
A big thanks from all of us at 4Wall to ETC, IATSE 52, and of course Michael and Teddy for the chance to host a great and informative event!
