Creative Conners Releases Spikemark 3

Spikemark 3 with Simulator. Have fun.Creative Conners, Inc. is thrilled to announce the release of Spikemark 3, the biggest step yet in the evolution of their innovative scenic automation software. Spikemark 3 features Simulator, allowing anyone to experiment with elegant scenic automation on a virtual stage, without the need to connect to motors.

Since its release in 2008, Spikemark has brought sophisticated and affordable motorized scenery to all levels of the entertainment industry and has become the industry standard with its easy-to-use interface and low cost. In addition to Simulator, Spikemark 3 now features a pre-configured Machine Library and integration with Dataton Watchout for synchronization of motors and video. Best of all, Spikemark is a free download for anyone who wants to visualize their scene changes in real-time, making it a great tool for colleges and universities with an automation program.

Building on the success of Spikemark 2, version 3 continues to streamline the process of automating your show with Simulator. Your entire show can be cued and run in real-time within the software before you ever go on stage, reducing lengthy tech rehearsals by identifying and fixing cueing problems in advance.

"Simulator is going to change the way our customers approach automation cueing," says Gareth Conner, Founder and President of Creative Conners. "You can now see and fine tune all of your automation sequences in advance. When you get on stage, check your spikes to the actual set, and you're ready for actors."

Another great feature for improving initial setup is the new Machine Library. Customers can add motors to their show by dragging a pre-configured machine out of the library and onto the virtual stage. The Machine Library comes loaded with Pushstick, Revolver and Curtain Call, so you will be ready to write cues in minutes.

Spikemark has become the standard for scenic automation software in theatre, education and commercial venues with over 180 customers using Creative Conners systems every night.
