Demo Truck Offers Exclusive Sound/Lighting Experience Nov. 14

To let students test drive high-tech sound and lighting equipment and ultimately, the live entertainment technology (LET) program at Lone Star College-Montgomery, the college is hosting Studer/Soundcraft’s demo truck on campus, Wednesday, November 14, from 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. in the parking lot near the Music Hall (Building H).

The public, including any LET professionals or those who are interested in the field, are welcome to stop by.  

The newly refurbished demo truck is filled with the latest audio visual equipment: workstations, flat screen video displays, sound-monitoring systems, multichannel audio feeds, six mixing consoles, and an iPad offering remote control of any console on the truck. It’s a sampling of the lastest Soundcraft, Studer, JBL and AKG gear available to an LET professional at work in the field.

LSC-Montgomery offers the state’s only LET program, which trains students to design, set-up, and operate lighting, video, and audio equipment. This includes microphones, sound speakers, projectors, recording equipment, sound and mixing boards, and more—everything needed for an elaborate production.

Four levels of training are available—a marketable skills award, which can be completed in one semester; a Level I certificate, which can be completed in one year; a Level II certificate, which can be completed in a year-and-a-half; and an associate of applied science degree, which can be completed in two years. Courses for the certificates apply to the associate of applied science degree, and many courses will transfer to other colleges as a springboard for a degree in other fields including technical theatre, lighting design, and computer systems management.
