The Evolution of Entertainment Engineering

June 06, 2019 / Al Presher

PC-based controls are continuing to make a mark on entertainment applications. The platform has a long history of providing performance and flexibility, but is now also evolving to bring additional technology for productions such as Hamilton, lobby theaters for resorts, and controls used in the 2017 America’s Cup. Cost-effective automation systems are setting the stage for theater and show applications of all sizes based on the experience of Hudson Scenic Studio. Hudson serves Broadway productions such as Aladdin, but also supports stage and show technology for customers of all sizes. According to Chuck Adomanis, senior engineer at Hudson Scenic Studio, enabling a high level of special effects necessitates robust operation both from mechanical equipment, software, and automation technology.
