The agenda, the topics for discussion and presentations are coming together very well. We have a very informative group of speakers who have kindly agreed to share their wisdom & a little humor with the decorating community. 

 

Most of you are probably familiar with TBDBITL, The Ohio State University Marching Band, known as The Best Damn Band in the Land; well Light Up Ohio is pleased to announce that TBDTITL, The Best Damn Transmitter in the Land will be present.  That's right there will be a discussion about FM transmitters and that whole facet of our hobby.  David Jones, DIY expert, will have several examples of transmitters on display as part of the talk. Both pre-packaged and DIY builds from kits.  If you are planning to attend, and have an FM transmit rig (transmitter and/or antenna) you'd like to showoff, please let us know so it can include it in the extravaganza. 

And, for those of you that have seen David speak at prior events, you already know that he'll be giving away a surprise 'something' to a lucky attendee!

 

This session promises to be fascinating and informative.

 

Check back frequently for updates as additional presentations will be announced.

 

Registration is open, so sign-up now.  Occupancy of the lodge is limited and the marshals do enforce it.  You won't want to miss out on LUO 2015.

Session Update: XLights/Nutcracker 4.0

 

Have you heard that XLights/Nutcracker will be releasing version 4.0?  One of LUO’s own, Richard Renn, is currently testing 4.0 and will discuss the many new features that will come along with it and some things that may come yet this year. Some of the new features at this time, you can create your own timing marks just like we do in Audacity no need to import unless you want to; you can now have multiple effect layers on a model  converting your existing XML files to the new fseq, converting LOR data into 4.0 and how to use the channel off set to line up your models. Right now there are releases almost daily. 

 

Sure you could spend hours learning on our own how the new 4.0 works; but why use your valuable time when you can attend LUO and learn it there, saving you countless hours. 

 

Seating and attendance is limited so sign up now:

Session Update: Are you thinking about adding pixels to your display or know just enough to get in trouble?  Attend Light Up Ohio and get a good handle on pixels with two more outstanding sessions planned.

 

Pixels 101 - A basic primer for anyone wanting to get involved into pixels but not sure where to start.   This session will start by giving a general overview of what pixels are, the different types, the hardware required to use them, along with the different sequencer options.   

Pixels 201 - A slightly more advanced discussion of pixels and design considerations - Architectures of different types of systems will be discussed, along with the protocols.    Performance differences of different types of pixels will be considered, along with costs of each types of system.  Topics like power injection, and 5v vs 12v will be considered.

 

Remember: Seating and attendance is limited so sign up now, here: http://lightupohio.whindo.com

Are we having the White Elephant Gift Exchange? Yes we are!

If you would like to participate, please bring a "wrapped" Christmas related item with you to the event. It can be something from your own collection or you can purchase something. If you choose to purchase something, you can spend as much as you like, but the general rule-of-thumb is to keep it under $20.
It's a lot of fun and you never know what you might get!!
