What is LightFactory version 2?
LightFactory 2 is a unique PC based lighting control system. Offering a no
compromise approach of traditional dimmer control and fully featured moving
light support. LightFactory was designed with the idea that every lighting
engineer, operator or designer could own their own control desk. One desk they
are completely familiar with, one desk that works for every situation and one
desk they can rely on every time. Most PC based control systems focus on moving
light support but lack the many features that make traditional lighting desks
standout. Lightfactory closes that gap.

Lighting without Limitations This PC-based control solution offers all the
features you would expect from any lighting control board and yet can be run
from the smallest of laptops. LightFactory can output up to 64 DMX universes

Ethernet output nodes. We recommend the
Enttec DMX USB Pro Interface

bundle of the one universe (512 dimmers) LightFactory with an
LightFactory + DMX Pro USB Bundle
for a special price. Select it from the dropdown box above.
A theatre console requires great flexibility to make programming complex cues as
quick and easy as possible. Implementing any lighting change the director throws
at you quickly and painlessly is second only to reliability. With LightFactory
you get a cue engine built by lighting designers with theatre specifically in
mind. We call LightFactory a no-compromise PC solution, providing speed,
flexibility and reliability in the most cost effective package available.

Build Powerful Shows with Powerful Tools
A completely flexible cue system allows you to build shows that run
automatically from start to finish without user interaction, or with, as
Fade in, delayed start, dwell, and fade out available for each cue. Each channel
can also have its own delayed start and/or fade time. Channels feature
intelligent fixtures, which are smart enough to modify only those properties
that vary in a cue.
Make Outstanding Effects
Build a library of lighting effects that can be added to shows for cue playback
or run independently from the separate effects runner screen. Several different
effects engines provide the best of all worlds.

Are you constantly hiring larger desks to use moving lights? No Problem!
LightFactory grows with your needs. The DMX system can be expanded in blocks of
512 dimmers, while your existing desk can be used to provide up to 1000
Because not every show is planned with a set cue list, LightFactory allows you
to access effects, palettes and channel groups on-the-fly, for complete control
of any situation. Channel groups can include specific fixture properties (e.g.
strobe), with or without the dimmer. Effect runners can be assigned to an
exclusive group to ensure that only one effect in the group will operate at the
