New Rigging Programs Added To ETCP Training


etcp.logoAmerican Crane & Safety, LLC and Reliable Design Services were approved this month to become ETCP Recognized Training Programs. The courses that participate in ETCP Recognized Training Program present an opportunity for ETCP Technicians to get a bulk of their education credits in one place, as these training opportunities count 1 point per hour of attendance.

American Crane & Safety Entertainment Rigging Courses is designed to provide participants with the ground-rigging basic knowledge of inspecting rigging gear, load control, as well as rigging procedures and techniques used in the entertainment industry through a problem-solving workshop. Scott Weldon, company owner, joined the ranks as ETCP Recognized Trainer this month as well. The Entertainment Rigging course is available online. The courses are also taught onsite for those who would like to attend in person.

Reliable Design’s Advanced Structures Workshop is co-hosted in Dallas on September 24, 2019 with Clark Reder Engineering. Attendees will learn about a range of structures used for outdoor events including how to deal with forces on systems and an opportunity for hands-on time to experiment with loads and their reactions on systems. Elmer Veith and Jeff Reder, along with special guests, will head up this three-day training that will provide 24 credits to those renewing their ETCP Certification. Those who apply before August 23rd will receive an early bird discount.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
