NYC Program: DMX Collaboration and Documentation Panel
Online Registration has been closed
Join us for a panel discussion as we explore the frequently challenging documentation, coordination, and design process of a project that uses the DMX control protocol.
The primary focus will be architectural projects that contain a programmable color-changing lighting system. We will discuss the responsibilities of each team member and their role in the design and implementation of the project. The goal is to help walk the design community through what questions and items they need to ask of whom, and when they need to ask them in the design process in order to ensure a successful final result.
