Pharos LPC adds the X-factor at PLASA07

29 August 2007

UK - Pharos Architectural Controls is introducing the LPC X, a big brother to the award-winning LPC1 and LPC2. This Lighting Playback Controller offers capacities up to a massive 100 DMX universes from a single unit, taking control for large installations to a whole new level, says the company.

The LPC X supports a variety of control protocols to suit different project needs, including DMX-over-Ethernet standards such as Pathport, ArtNet, ETCNet2 and Streaming ACN. Also provided are DVI and Firewire DV outputs for integrating with arrays of fixtures that require video-based control.

There is also a framework in place to support custom protocols for bespoke projects. Multiple different protocols can be output simultaneously from a single unit giving synchronised control across an installation and making the LPC X a flexible answer for large-scale control.

Pharos has also announced its support for Color Kinetics proprietary Ethernet control protocol for direct control of networked CK power supplies. Pharos is the only third-party controller to offer this support.

The LPC X is a 2U 19î rackmount unit and is an entirely solid-state solution - no fans, no hard disks - giving the same rugged reliability as the popular DIN-rail mounting LPCs, adds the company. It works seamlessly with other Pharos controllers and remote devices on the network and has a variety of onboard triggering options including RS232, Ethernet, DMX input and realtime clock. And like the other Pharos controllers it also supports remote management via a built-in web interface.

Another exciting new feature is the ability to take a live video input (via Firewire) and pixel-map it in real time. This opens up more opportunities for interactive and themed attractions, alongside the powerful show control features that already exist within the Pharos software.
