PRESENTATION SYNOPSIS: In this basic wireless DMX class, Ben will cover new developments in Wireless DMX technology used in stage lighting and entertainment. This will include an introduction to DMX protocol, benefits and challenges of Wireless DMX, and some hands-on experience with setting up and troubleshooting Wireless DMX systems.
For more than 15 years, Ben Heald has worked in the New England Film Industry as a Cinematographer and a Gaffer, these roles interact with each other. As a Gaffer, Ben has learned under some remarkably talented DPs, always growing and gaining experience for his own work. Gaffing allows Ben to work hands-on with the newest equipment and to see the process from another side, affording him a greater understanding of what is possible. Ben has many substantial screen credits, perhaps most significant is that Ben was the Gaffer on CODA, winning Best Picture in 2022.
Special thanks to Dave Talamas, Mike Duca, Scott Lebeda and Ben Heald for arranging this special MASTER CLASS presentation.
