Joshua also likes the disguise MultiEdit feature. “During tech rehearsals I set up my laptop as an editor so I can tweak things in real-time without interfering with the person running the show on disguise.”
The gx 1 in the Jewel Box arrived more recently and will be used on productions starting next season. The space is also rented for corporate events and conferences, and the media server is currently being used for those applications. “The gx 1 gives us a lot of flexibility for our rentals, each of which has different needs,” Joshua notes. “We can refocus for screens we set up without moving the projectors and accept many different sources for presentations. We’re good to go very quickly for clients.”
Next up for the gx 2 in the Centre Stage will be a production of the musical ‘Newsies,’ which opens in June with video content designed by Roberts.
