Looking for a good way to communicate with 5 light crew members as we don't have headsets and during shows it can be annoying when the spot crew is messing up and we can't tell them that they are screwing up. We've tried many options such as soundtrap using the call collaborators feature but that times out after a certain amount of time. We've also used Zello (on our phones) but we keep notes on our Chromebooks so that wasn't Ideal does anyone have any suggestions sorry if this isn't the right place to post this it was the first thing I could think of.
-Note Any program online will work for us as long as it is open communication not push 2 talk. Hangouts is blocked for our Chromebooks we've tried. This is at a school hence why hangouts is blocked.
You might have better luck at a general theater forum like ControlBooth.com, since this forum is for ETC products.
You know I think ETC should make a communication system it would be perfect to go along with cue system
Also is control booth still like active active how fast could I get a response from someone
CB is very active. Far more than this sub forum.
A com system that isn't headsets, is pretty much the cue light systems. Maybe something like a com call button or panic cue indicator would do for you. Something to mean "call the stage manager ASAP!"
