SNUG IS TIGHT ENOUGH
When making adjustments to studio or field tripods remember that:
SNUG is TIGHT ENOUGH.
Pan, Tilt, Pedestal and Leg Locks should be tightened just enough to
prevent movement. If these knobs are tightened too far the threads
will strip and need to be replaced - in some cases at considerable expense -
so please do not overtighten them.
TURN THE LIGHTS OFF!
In order to lengthen the life of the STUDIO LIGHTS we have installed
iINDIVIDUAL POWER SWITCHES for the BACKLIGHTS, INTERVIEW LIGHTS AND
STAGE LIGHTS. The power for each set of lights is controlled by a separate
switch located on the electrical panel at the right rear of the studio behind
the curtain. When you are ready to set the lights for your show turn on the switch
for the light sets you want to use.
THE LIGHTS ARE STILL CONTROLLED (DIM, COLOR etc.) BY THE CONTROL ROOM PANELS. THE CONTROL ROOM PANELS SHOULD NOT BE TURNED OFF
WHEN YOUR SHOW IS OVER PLEASE TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE LIGHTS USING THE SWITCHES ON THE BACKSTAGE PANEL.
