RSAMD Gets Educational System

The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD) is the first education venue to purchase a Stage Technologies power-flying system for use with training modules integrated into its curriculum. With an Illusionist control desk on the fly-floor and an additional 28 computers in the PC lab running Chameleon software, the RSAMD can now offer students offline training on a virtual flying system and a real system to operate in their theatre.

As well as providing RSAMD with the latest technology to teach students, the point-hoist system is a flexible and portable tool for use in home and touring productions.
