Artistic Licence Release New Version Of Light-Switch

A new version of Light-Switch, a DMX512 playback system, has been released.
Light-Switch can now be remote controlled via RS232. This means that Light-Switch can easily be integrated into a larger show control system.
Light-Switch is ideal for use in conference room facilities, retail and domestic environments, trade shows and museum exhibits.
Available in both UK and US style wall panels, Light-Switch is controlled by 14 illuminated buttons. Features include 3 pages of 8 memories, with each memory containing all 512 channels and an Independent Fade Time. A fourth page provides 6 sequences with variable step times and direction control.
The entire system is programmed by PC application Switch-Edit, which contains a moving lamp library and fully implements both post and pre-master channels. This feature allows all types of DMX devices to be freely mixed. Once programmed, the show can be downloaded and programmed to flash memory. Light-Switch can also be programmed by recording DMX512 from another lighting console.
Switch-Edit can also link to the off-line (free) version of Colour-Tramp. This allows the power of Colour-Tramp to be used as an off-line editor to programme Light-Switch.
Up to thirty Light-Switch panels can be connected to a single DMX512 cable. The slave panels can be programmed to control specific zones or rooms. This topology is a great benefit during installation, as only one DMX or Cat5 cable is needed to connect all the panels and dimmers. Light-Switch also offers an infrared interface that is compatible with TV style handsets.
