COMMON ATTRIBUTES OF SUCCESSFUL STANDARDS Does this mean we shouldn’t attempt to standardize anything? Of course not, but in my experience, I’ve found that successful standards have a few things in common: 1. Successful standards are pulled into existence by the market; they are not pushed. They fill a clear commercial demand in the market, especially one driven by users. Often, this means 4. In fact, several informal (outside the MMA) efforts to update the MSC specification failed because the process had no mechanism with which to resolve an intractable debate between those (including me) who wanted to strip MSC down to a core of simple functionality and those who wanted to include new features that were not being demanded by the market.

Ethernet is probably the standard that has had the most impact on our market, and it is fast becoming our universal control data transport standard because it does one thing extremely well: transport bits. It doesn’t really care what the bits are, and that is its strength. The bits could be lighting data, streaming audio, video files, or porn—Ethernet doesn’t care. STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT Open standards are typically developed by a group of manufacturers, consultants, designers, and/or concerned users.

At Disney-MGM Studios, sophisticated live shows such as the George Lucas Super Live Adventure (which was produced in the United States, but unfortunately toured only in Japan) and EFX in Las Vegas led the way, using show control not to reduce labor costs, but instead to allow performer interaction with show elements, thereby providing cueing sophistication and precision in ways that would otherwise be impossible. As of this writing, this level of interactivity is being taken to new heights in shows like KÀ™ from Cirque du Soleil™ in Las Vegas.
