It's a really old lighting desk that we tried to get working... it kept lighting up and then dying. But it is 27 years old!

God I remember those desks.....

Functional I think is the word for them..

LoL wonder what the difference between MEM DISC and DISC MEM is?

18th Aug 2007, 22:33

Steve says:

I believe that MEM DISC is to transfer the show from memory to disc and DISC MEM is to load the show from disc to memory. But I could be wrong

General chat has led me to believe that the Galaxy remains a popular lamp desk for tv lighting types. In fact, many of the studios at Television Centre are still run on Galaxy Novas.

Have a search for 'galaxy' on http://www.tvstudiohistory.co.uk/tv%20centre%20history.htm

Yes you are right, the nova was a step up from the standard Galaxy but it is still pretty low tech, This probably has a lot to do with its reliability.

TV lighting and theatre lighting consoles have different requirements placed upon them. I wouldn't even think about using a Galaxy on a show.

Yeah Steve I spent many many happy years working for various theatres and on tours..

MEM Disk was to back up the Qs to disk and Disk MEM was to load the qs to the desk..

And the ? key? Is it a programmable spare key or just a "Do you feel lucky today" key?

Why did I get out?

You know, I don't really know why I got out, it just sort of happened. I wanted a bit of time at home and not touring I remember that much.
