Join me in a workshop I am teaching on Feb. 16th titled "Lighten Up: Doing More with Less without Compromise." The subject is how to get the most out of todays lighting instruments. The poor Power Factor of HMIs, Kinos, & LEDs have been vexing set electricians for years. For more information about the adverse effects these loads can have on generators and power distribution systems, and how to remedy them so that you can operate bigger, or more small, lights on portable generators or house power than has ever been possible before take this workshop. As part of the same workshop series, New England Studios, Talamas Broadcast, and Production Hub will be sponsoring a workshop on “Video Lighting Design” by L.D. Richard Cadena on Feb. 9th. Noted Focal Press Author, ETCP Trainer, and Founder of the Academy of Production Technology, Richard’s workshops are both lively and informative.

Hi, Im from Europe, Austria, and pretty unfamiliar with the US Power System, but I'd like to learn about it. If someone with experience in this field could help me a little bit would be great. 1st question: What du you use as connection from generator to the set? Camlok? or only on the bigger sets? And are the camlok cables what sometimes seems to be called banded cables? And in what sizes (amp- wise) come these cables? 2nd question. what cables do you use to power the lamps? bates? or are there different systems for different lamps? 3rd : What do you use a grounding cable for? just for grounding the genny? Thanks in advance, if i can help out with the European System let me know. Markus
