From the Studio: Snug is Tight Enough and Turn The Lights Off!

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.
