CueSpider Outstation


The ETC CSNOSS CueSpiders "go" wherever communication backstage is needed. Each CueSpider outstation has an informational readout screen and a red and a green cue light, which can be activated using preprogrammed cues on a PC or playback unit, or can be directly controlled using the corresponding buttons on a CueSystem Desk. CueSpiders are connected by standard power-over-Ethernet networks, so they can easily be placed and rearranged as production needs change. For larger systems, CueSpiders can be daisy-chained to the same control channel.

In standard operation, the CueSpider’s red light acts as a “standby” cue, switching to green on “go,” but the two indicators can also be operated as independent cue lights, turning on for “standby” and off for “go.” CueSpiders can be easily patched and configured using CueSpider’s free PC software.

CueSystems feature an "acknowledge" mode that require preformers and operators to connect before the "go" is issued. This is to ensure smooth operations backstage. When the stage manager switches a CueSystem channel to “standby,” the red indicator lights on both the CueSpider and the Desk will flash until acknowledgement is received. To acknowledge the standby, the CueSpider operator simply presses the flashing indicator, switching both the Desk and the CueSpider lights to solid red and confirming to the stage manager that everything is in place for the “go” cue.
