The majority of class time will be spent teaching people
how to use the Light-O-Rama (LOR) S3 software suite.
Some class time will be spent reviewing the various
hardware products and services offered by both Holiday
Technologies and LOR. Throughout your time together the
LOR-certified instructor will share his real world
experiences in setting up and commissioning large
commercial displays. Additionally, he will also
teach shortcuts that will save countless hours of wasted
time during the busy time of the decorating season.
The course will be
divided as follows:
- Day 1 -
Introduction, Technology Overview, Hardware,
Software in the suite, Hardware Utility, Sequence
- Day 2 - Sequence
Editor (continued), building shows, Visualizer, advanced
training in various topics, including using DMX
devices, tips and tricks for increasing the speed and
quality of your programming, commercial applications
and considerations which can be applied to your
display, using RGB lights and pixels in a display
using DMX and/or ethernet, and various other advanced topics.
Attendees will be provided with training manuals and a
lunch for each day they attend.

What to bring:
Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a computer
with them that has the Light-O-Rama software already
installed, some digital pictures of a potential display
location, and an audio file or two on their computer.
They also need to bring one working light controller,
the hardware necessary to connect the controller to
their computer, a pair for headphones or earbuds, a
power strip, at least three strings of Christmas lights,

the course is to allow students the opportunity to start
setting up their display on their computer and to
program part of an audio file of their
choice using several of the major tools available in the LOR S3 software suite.
