J.R. Clancy, Inc., a design, manufacturing and installation company for rigging equipment, announced the availability of a hand held device that extends the capabilities of the SceneControl automated motion control system to any point in the theatre. SceneControl Hand Held Remote has a six-inch, graphic touchscreen in two-dimensional color and 14 function keys that allow the operator to select sets or multiple sets and move them between show-specific soft limits. From the touch screen, the operator can see and execute the presets and cues that were written on the theatre's SceneControl 500 console.

The new hand held remote extends J.R. Clancy's automated motion control offerings in its SceneControl brand. More information on SceneControl Hand Held Remote is available from J.R. Clancy at 800-836-1885 or
