Best Board for Students

Recommended Posts

I'm a technician at a school and currently thinking of buying a new lighting board for our system, The school Theatre has 111 dimmers and the school has about 8 moving heads.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions of a good and relatively easy board for students to get to grips with?

Hi Janders,

 

From the Zero 88 product range, there are 2 consoles that would suite your requirements, depending on budget.

 

The TL Xtra is the easiest of the boards. It can do 200 dimmer channels and 30 fixtures (moving lights). It has 10 physically submasters which are pageable.

 

You're then looking at the ORB Series which comes in two models - the ORB and the ORB XF. This gives you a console with massively more possibilities, but with that comes another level both in price and complexities. That said, there are a lot of schools who have these consoles in their venues, and after a training session their students get on with them really well.

As someone who sells the products the TL Xtra goes really well into schools and is a nice cross into bigger and better things, but personally i still prefer the Solution over this as it is a lot more intuitive desk to work with when programming, if you have the budget for the Orb though, go there of course!
