Here I will list the restoration of my show as well as other stuff relating to it. I should be picking up the console this weekend and that will be the first thing.

Its too bad the bot is already gone. Why can't CEC forget to remove it for once lol.

Are you going to get everything? Like the stage and background, the apple TV, the big TV, blue screen, etc?

If you can get the console up and working to some degree that would be amazing!

Just in case here are a few PDFs that might help get it fully working.

To play shows now would probably require hacking the system, due to the cyberstar or whatever the Studio C uses having date restrictions happen to shows.

That is only Studio C HD. Studio C SD doesn't have date restrictions. All I need is to find one of those controllers and start running my show.

Ryan, you can't get a studio c controller. The philipsen studio C cyberstar is a very complex system that all together for it to work at all is at least $10,000 with the transmitters, DTUs, Relay Panel, computer, and actual panel. There are so many configurations that you wouldn't understand. Your best bet is to make a controller yourself which I am happy to help with but getting a studio C cyberstar will just not be possible. Sorry

Another thing is that the systems shows is densely encrypted and use SMPTE timecode at frame drop speed. Its just not possible to run the system at home. There are separate audio and video channels with seperate processors and each show is precisely started at the same time, the video file has a mixed mono audio output with the SMPTE timecode running from the left audio channel dI'mirectly into the internal clock system, that tells the system where the show time is at and it pulls the highly compressed data out of text files.

If you want a system similar to studio C, I have a design that runs the same type of playlist and works the same way, shows are stored on a flash drive. That controller runs from $300 to $800 depending on your requirements.


I do also have a design that uses a commercial grade AV looping system that can be joined with my signal decoder cards for your outputs. That controller can be produced pretty cheaply
Here is my DIY kit for my 40 channel output driver which is arduino compatible and extremely easy to program.
It costs about $60

Just open the image in a new tap and copy the URL.
Also the technical manual lists some of the show components.
