Conventional stage cueing devices rely on wired connections to communicate with Sound/Lighting to Stage Managers. This is not always convenient as Stage Managers often have to be away from their post, attending to actors and unforeseen issues. Alternatively Lighting crew can be up in an inaccessible part of the theatre gantry.
The StageCue app is a totally wireless solution for Android or Apple devices. Simply connect both devices to the same wifi router. (This router doesn’t even need to be connected to the internet). Then start the apps on both devices to establish a connection.
NOW WITH VIBRATE FACILITY SO YOU DONT HAVE TO BE LOOKING AT THE SCREEN, NEVER MISS A CUE!
In use, press a Red or Green button on either device, the other will flash the corresponding colour. The recipient then presses the flashing button to show a confirmation “OK” on both devices. With StageCue the operators both know the state of readiness of each other.
Operation is simplicity itself, but if you have any issues connecting please turn off the Firewall option on the router. If a device fails to connect, just turn off the app and restart, it should find the other automatically.
The device will stay illuminated in the last command state, if you feel you need to clear the screen, restart one device to return to the dark ready state. (We will have a Clear All button in the next development update).
