Qmotion has travelled the globe operating countless shows
UK - Stage One has launched two new products - The Venturi Console and Playback Wing. Designed and manufactured in-house, the wing body is printed by sister company FluxAxis and finished by Stage One’s scenic department. The Qmotion automation system has been continuously evolving and developing for over 20 years. As part of this ongoing development, the new products will support the system’s scalability and capability.
These new additions will join an extensive catalogue of in-house automation equipment, further cementing Qmotion’s position as a leader in the automation industry. The Venturi Console is a portable operator console for controlling up to 10 axes of automation using Stage One’s MotionBase software. The console connects to the complete range of Qmotion hardware using the company’s standard Global cable, which incorporates both safety and network connectivity within one interface.
As a result, the product will reduce load-in times and complexity for multiple axis jobs whilst offering a robust and tourable platform for smaller shows. The new playback wing is the update of a product that has travelled the globe operating countless shows, including the London Olympics and the Sochi Winter Olympics. Operating with Stage One’s NextQ software this wing allows for slick control of cues and motion. The new design adds tweaks and updates to improve accuracy and efficiency by using ergonomic playback control and configurable shortcut buttons.
In addition, Stage One has recently launched a School of Technology, a training platform developed and run by leading industry professionals, that allows individuals to become certified automation operators. Offering a range of courses from an introduction to automation through to advanced Qmotion programming, the syllabus is delivered by the creators of Qmotion. Each unit is delivered in a trainer-led classroom environment and is supported by electronic and hardcopy training material. Each course includes practical exercises and allows hands-on access to control surfaces and hardware. The function of the School of Technology is to produce safe and competent Qmotion operators and programmers.
