High End Systems has launched Season One of ‘Hedgeucation’, a new online video series that demonstrates how easy it is to learn and use the Hog 4 platform. All episodes can be found on a new landing page on the HES website, www.highend.com/learnhog4.
The first season of many, Season One gets viewers up and rocking quickly, focusing on use of the compact HedgeHog 4 console to patch, program and operate a live show. High End Systems’ Joe Haller hosts the series, offering practical Hog tips and tricks along with a true Texan sense of humor (‘Who doesn’t like mirror balls, Joe?’) A nail biting season finale shot at the Majestic Theatre in Madison, WI shows programmers how to use what they’ve learned to light a live performance. Extras including Hog 4 show files and additional course material can be downloaded from www.highend.com/learnhog4.
Senior Product Manager Sarah Clausen commented, “The Hedgeucation series of videos is designed to take beginning users through the basics of using the HedgeHog 4 consoles. The great thing about this is that you can use this information on any Hog 4 console because they all use the same software. The Hog family is known first and foremost for being easy to use – getting you from patch to showtime in short order. These videos help you through those first easy steps.”
