During social distancing we at Lambda have made sure to include lots of training into our days! Not only have we brushed up on our OSHA training, but we’ve virtually attended a Danley Sound Labs seminar, BTX’s Stem Audio systems and so much more! Now is a great time to learn more about your equipment or do some trainings you’ve been putting off until you have more time. We hope to come out of this social distancing equipped with more knowledge and information on new systems and refreshed on our favorite ones. We hope you can do the same!
So during quarantine, we wanted to take a minute to remind you about ‘El Maunuel’! One of the biggest things we like to encourage at Lambda Audio Visual is using your equipment to its fullest. Almost every piece of equipment we work with and sell is positioned to not only fill your needs, but to grow with you. Our tech tip this week is non-other than the equipment user Manual!
We affectionately speak of this amazing tool on our crews as our most important and knowledgeable crew member ‘El Manuel’ (of course we say it with an accent). “Have you checked with Manuel”, is a common day to day saying for us. This is because while our trainings do a great job of getting teams started and helping them to solve problems, it’s only when you dig into what the manufacturer has designed the equipment to do that you can fully understand it.
So, you’re interested now, and you want to try our idea, but you threw away the box your equipment came in along with that precious little book of knowledge. What now? Never fear, the internet is a treasure trove of manuals and information. Some of our favorites are Black Magic Support with a constantly updated user manuals for all their products. We also love the Youtube resources for Obsidian control systems, formerly known as Martin Lighting. They have an expansive tutorial set online showing step by step how to become an expert with their products. Check out Obsidian Control Systems - YouTube. Another incredible catalog of resources comes from Boxcast. They have a library of support and tutorials to help you troubleshoot in minutes. Last, but not least, did you know we have other learning resources and checklists for you on our website?
Join us in educating yourselves on the products you own so you can use it to its fullest capability!
