Minotaur Sound System Database

Fed up with Paperwork?
Minotaur is an industry-leading sound system database that makes design and production easier. Daniel is going to walk us through how it works!
Key features include:
Equipment. Manage all the equipment on your project, including equipment from different sources, from one database. Generate lists that track changes. Generate equipment labels. Estimate costs.
Cable. Track every cable’s name, type, connections, bundle, and multi-pair lines. Link similar or split cables together. Patch cables and multi-pair lines together. Generate checklists and labels.
Wireless. Track roles, actors, transmitters or receivers, and frequencies. Generate paperwork and labels. Import frequencies from IAS for each city.
Boxes. Associate equipment with boxes. Generate pack lists. Generate box labels. Generate the manifest by box, including values and country of origin. Estimate how much cable will fit in a box.
Power Circuiting. Estimate power draw by circuit and phase. Generate reports.
Maintenance. Give each piece of equipment a history, including changes, repairs, serials numbers, and tracking numbers.
Spreadsheet Integration. Import equipment for input and outputs lists. Export information to Excel for custom lists and labels.
Backups. Minotaur automatically backs itself up every half hour.
Bingo. Make tech bingo cards for your production. The associate lighting designer will chuckle.
Flexibility. All equipment types and parameters are user-defined, so you can use Minotaur in your existing workflow without changing naming conventions or order of operations.
Defaults. Minotaur comes with a default equipment library, including thousands of pieces of equipment; default cable types; and default box types. Choose to use defaults, your own data, or a combination.
Minotaur runs as a standalone application on Mac or PC.
