Cognito2

Cognito2 offers the same easy and intuitive programming interface that makes control over incandescent dimmers, moving lights and color-changing LEDs a breeze.  Although the interface hasn't changed, the output has.  Now with up to twice the universe count and a new HDMI output for an external monitor, Cognito2 doubles up on the capabilities of what is quickly becoming the go-to console for small to medium size churches, schools and other halls of public assembly. The original Cognito remains fully supported. The latest fixture library as well as a maintenance release dated February 24 for original Cognito are available here! The February 24 release fixes several operational issues including occasional loss of authorization, a touch screen bug and MSC command parsing. This release also corrects a real time clock issue in the December 3 beta release. Download the release notes from the link above for more details and the full list of changes.

ColorSource Consoles

Control your rig - with style

With moving lights, LEDs and multimedia appearing in more and more shows, even small venues need a board that can handle an intelligent rig - intelligently.

ColorSource 20 and ColorSource 40

Available in two sizes, ColorSource® consoles provide hands-on control designed for the latest technology. These affordable, portable desks specialize in streamlined, plug-and-play setup; when the console powers up, it uses RDM to recognize intelligent lights in the rig and auto-populates them in patch. Simply use the on-board touchscreen drag each fixture into place on a customizable stage map, and you’ll be programming in minutes. Whether you’re recording cues or working on the fly, these consoles you covered, with faders that can be used to play back looks and effects or to mix the perfect color in your LED lights.
