I have recently come into a space as the resident lighting supervisor. I've been here for about a month, and I have been identifying some capitol improvements I would like to make. The first one that is currently feasible for us to make is a new remote system for use with iRFR and Alien Stagecraft systems. In the past, I have worked mostly with iPads and old iPod touches. However, over the Summer, I worked with an LD who utilized a different device. I can't seem to get in contact with him, but the device he had was much cheaper than an Apple product and was more reliable. I was curious what experience the people here have with alternative tablets and what sort of recommendations you have in regards to the purchase of a new one? I am currently working with a budget of $150 in an ideal world, but that budget can very easily be expanded if needbe. Any input is appreciated.
