The Lighting Application Suite (LAS) 7.0 combines DMX, e:pix and DALI lighting, multimedia, and show control programming with unrivalled connectivity and matrix control features. The software suite offers maximum DMX512/RDM channel control and easier access for the end-user, including the ability to control up to 750,000 channels (via Emotion FX) and operate more than 25,000 RDM systems. The regular Programmer software controls up to 128 universes, or 65,536 DMX512/RDM channels. LAS 7.0 incorporates significant improvements to the Action Pad, a web server for browser or mobile device control, cuelists, and the Dynamic Scroll Text, for fast changes on LED matrix systems, guaranteeing even greater programming control and flexibility. Furthermore, the LAS 7.0 now completely integrates DALI devices with the e:cue ETH2DALI interface.

Create stunning lighting sequences using the Live FX generator - Endless lighting sequence possibilities and effects from simple color-changing chasers to complex, dynamic color patterns can be generated using the Live FX generator.
Program advanced interactive automation or triggering - With simple steps, users can program various automation and triggering features for their lighting installation.
Program precisely timed lighting scenes - Define transitions between cues, wait times, delay effects, and fade in/out times to the millisecond for the perfect lighting show.
Build multimedia sequences with Emotion FX - Real-time video effects, overlay videos, images and scrolling text dynamically, apply real-time effects and route the result to monitors, Video Micro Converters, or output via Butler PRO. Even live streams from cameras or external video sources can be included.
Configure 1:1 pixel mapping of video content - Instantly map video pixels to LED nodes for video-to-lighting.
Convert web information into scrolling text - The Dynamic Scroll Text function has the ability to convert RSS feeds and website texts into scrolling texts on an LED matrix system.
Preview lighting projects with a Visualizer tool (Imagine) - Using the built-in 2D Visualizer or use the Imagine software, tool to preview the lighting show in 3D.
Control lighting shows using an Internet browser - An HTML-enabled web server offers browsers the possibility to trigger all functions available within the LAS software package, thus enabling the use of wireless devices or via the free apps specially designed iOS or Android™ devices.*
Intuitively arrange lighting fixtures in your project plan - Using the Patchelor tool, users can easily map the lighting fixtures using a background picture of the project for intuitive planning.
Supports RDM protocol for bidirectional communication - RDM (Remote Device Management) bidirectional communication allows remote configuration, status monitoring, and management of lighting fixtures with RDM capability. Use the integrated SMTP client to receive status emails of your installations.
Select standard fixtures using the Fixture Library for easy set-up - The Fixture Library includes an extensive list of standard products by major lighting manufacturers. Users can choose fixtures and arrange them, create their own fixture profile for addition of new or custom fixtures.
Organize and group fixtures - Cluster fixtures and individual LEDs for easier access and management of large lighting installations with several sections. Users can name fixture groups for better organization and ease of programming.
Use the same lighting desk features on a PC - Familiar features used in lighting desks such as cues, cue lists, sub-masters, grandmasters, and faders make it easy for experienced programmers and lighting designers to learn e:cue software and use the same features on a PC and on the Lighting Control Engine.
Use the Color Picker for quick color selection - Assign color to individual lighting nodes or groups using the Color Picker, a standard feature in all familiar graphic software applications.
Create animations using Wizards - Easily generate chasers, dynamic scrolling text, graphic animations, and map video content using software wizards.
Program time and date triggers - Use specific date and time triggers in three calculation modes to start lighting shows based on sunrise, sunset, specific holidays including full support for daylight savings functionality and other time-related triggers.
Customize Glass Touch User Terminals - Simply tailor the functionality of the touch sensitive keys and wheels of all Glass Touch User terminals using a visual tool in only a few steps. Export to Butler XT2 for small applications.
Use the Sequencer to compose shows with a visual timeline - The Sequencer, as an intuitive timeline sequencing tool, displays video as single frames and audio data as a waveform, and can record manually evoked events.
Complete and easy customization of multiple remote - Programmer’s Action Pad tool allows users to create and publish their own fully customized user interface to several platforms including a local PC running e:cue Programmer; a remote PC running any browser with Flash; and wireless mobile devices via free application.
Combine functional and creative lighting - Use intelligent DMX512 and DALI lighting control in one application, with a single graphical user interface over mobile devices.
Control large numbers of DMX512/RDM channels and pixels - Design simple to complex lighting shows requiring control of up to 65,536 DMX512/RDM channels up to 25,000 RDM fixtures or control up to 750,000 RGB Pixel with Emotion FX via e:net and Butler DMX512/RDM output devices.
Use scripting language for advanced custom solutions - Advanced users can utilize the e:script scripting language, based on familiar programming language concepts, to create special functions for custom solutions and unlimited programming options.
Integrate Input/Output signals for external triggering - Allows integration of external control devices through various protocols to initiate various functions in the software.
Use two media players for simultaneous video/audio playback - Use two media players to replay and transition between two video files simultaneously.
Realize sound-to-light effects using Audio DSP - Create dynamic lighting sequences based on sound from music or other audio source.
Realize projects for a single office or for a complete building - If you need only some DMX512 and DALI channels, or an integrated control of DMX512 media walls and DALI functional lighting, the Lighting Application Suite sets no limits.
