Stage Research Introduces Software Updates At USITT

Visitors to Stage Research’s Booth 1040 will be the first to witness the unveiling of major updates to the company’s software at the USITT (United States Institute for Theatre Technology) Conference and Stage Expo to be held March 18th-21st, 2009 at Duke Energy Convention Center, Cincinnati, Ohio.

“We’re introducing updates at USITT which offer expanded features and functionality to provide even more capabilities at cost-effective price points,” says Stage Research’s Carlton Guc.

SFX 6.2, Stage Research’s flagship product for creating reliable and enriched soundscapes, is a major new release that now includes improved show control editors, an updated audio playback engine, and interface changes, including a large timecode clock.

SoftPlot10, a graphical design tool that enables lighting designers to plot lighting and manage paperwork at all levels of the industry, has been entirely rewritten with a new-from-the-ground-up interface that makes it easier to use than ever before.

ShowBuilder6, which takes the drudgery out of the administrative side of production, has also been completely rewritten to broaden its scope. “ShowBuilder originally focused on sound designers, but now it serves everyone in production: sound designers, lighting designers, carpenters, hair and makeup, stage management, wardrobe, technical directors,” explains Guc. “Users will find the software indispensable to handle production paperwork for company, cast, sound, props, route tracking and more.”

He adds, “We expect these updates to draw crowds of existing customers and a steady stream of prospective users to the Stage Research booth at USITT.”

About SFX
SFX is found at all levels of theater from academics to the pros. Professional theaters use the software to create reliable and enriched soundscapes and it has been employed in many award-winning shows, including several Tony Award winners. The academic stage (elementary education through college) and amateur theater appreciate SFX for the
high quality of shows it can create and because it can be easily run by novice operators. Students using SFX get the added benefit of learning the software they will most likely work with when they enter the theatrical job market.

SFX 6 provides features that no other product can. It enables designers to refine and create effects on-site rather than having to shuttle back and forth between a studio and performance space. This affords the freedom to optimize sound designs for the acoustics of the space and other components of the performance. SFX 6′s newly rewritten audio engine frees the need for an OS playback engine for hassle-free mixing and placement of audio. SFX 6 features an intuitive user-interface and can be programmed to run complex events with little or no user input.
