    Name this connector - 2!

    We're doing a slightly flashier school production this year (We Will Rock You - for those that haven't seen it it's a bit like Mamma Mia but with better music and a point) so I want to take the lighting desk out front, rather than being stuck in the wings with it. I therefore need to get hold of (or make up) some extension cables.

    Long story short:
    starter for 10 - what's this connector called?
    221010-0834(001).jpg
    Bonus question - where can I get a 30m extension cable for them from?

    Is it an 8-PIN MIDI cable?

    If so, then anywhere like Maplin's should do them...

    8 pin DIN. DIN connector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You might want to check what the max cable lengh is before adding 30m to the existing setup.

    If he had kept his screwing to himself instead of trying to spread it around things would be much better

    Wonder what other cables we shall give loving names to, we already have Steve's (Domino will remember those)

    8 Pole Preh DIN. Buying an extension shouldn't be too hard, 10 out of 10 or Stage Elecs etc. Shouldn't affect you in this case, but beware that Pulsar and Zero 88 both use the connector but wired differently!

    Hmm We Will rock you..... If your feeling brave Screenmonkey is really good for triggering video effects, couple of old laptops and projectors, and some good creative graphics/video loops may save the need for lots of R & R lighting rigging. I do have a 50M extention drum for those connectors but sadly you seem a bit far away for it to be of any use!
