NEW YORK — The ESTA Foundation launched eSET, an Internet-based source for terminology used within the entertainment technology industry. “Entertainment technology can be like a foreign country, and if you want to be a fluent speaker of its language, you have to learn the grammar, syntax and jargon that the locals know,” the foundation notes on the eSET Web site,

The subscription based service, which is searchable and includes a continually-updated roster of industry terms and quizzes to test knowledge, costs $10 per year for students, $15 per year for professionals and $40 per year for a five-site license.

Here’s a snapshot of the more than 2,200 terms so far, by category: Lighting and Electrics (405); Staging/Scenic Fabrication (323); Multimedia/Projection (170); Rigging (341); Safety (54); EFX/Effects (31); Audio/Sound (197); Costume (285); Properties/Set Dressing (25); and Venues (462).
