    Software for lighting control

    Theatrical lighting control has advanced from the use of a lighting board with sliders similar to a audio mixer to software control. The most common theater lighting control protocol is DMX512. The DMX512 standard is a method of transmitting data between the controller run by the software and the lighting equipment. Each software program has a controller box that plugs into the USB port of the computer. The software is a user interface that is easy for the operator to understand and transmits the control information to the fixtures. Most important the software can store hundreds of lighting scenes or “looks” and save them for later use by a less experienced operator. Software based lighting control software will usually have control of up to 512 channels.

    Lighting software that is currently on the market can be purchased in the $200 to $1000. range. Suggested products to consider are: Sunlite

    Hardware based lighting controller with 16 channels for simple installations will cost in the $400.00 range. A suggested low cost controler is the Lightronics TL-4008 (link is found below).
