We love lighting control here at iSquint. We love it even more when it involves our favorite little product from Apple, the iPhone. We have been watching Synthe FX, the developers of the iPhone and iPod Touch DMX lighting control app, Luminair. Think of having a control console in the palm of your hand with out the need for cables. Luminair works over wireless networking to control, view and manage your lighting fixtures. It uses the Art-Net protocol to communicate with compatible hardware on your lighting network. Luminair is able to control a complete universe of DMX512.
While recently reviewing our twitter feed, we noticed a new follower, @synthefx, the developers of Luminair. Synthe FX created the new twitter feed to release updates on the next version of Luminair 1.5. Synthe FX also has a promotion running through their twitter feed. Follow Synthe FX via twitter up until the release of Luminair 1.5 and on the day of the release, Synth FX will select w winner at random from their list of followers. The winner will receive a copy of the upcoming version of Luminair, 1.5 as well as 10% off on the Enttec ODE.
We have heard through reliable sources that some of the new features in Luminair 1.5 include Quick-Touch cues for easy touch based triggering of cues, the ability to record Art-Net input port data directly to a quick-touch cue. This could be useful when recording values from a console or any or DMX source.
