Lighting Control Engine 2

Designed to control large and complex projects, e:cue's Lighting Control Engine 2 is a high-performance server with pre-installed SYMPHOLIGHT and Lighting Application Suite (LAS) software. Functioning as a central control unit, this versatile and reliable server coordinates all devices and luminaires within one project. It features integrated DMX512/RDM inputs and outputs, digital switching inputs, two single-pole relay outputs and support for the most varied Ethernet-based protocols, and also offers the capability to integrate various audio/video as well as external systems, for example via the RS-232 or the SMPTE timecode. The LCE2 is the ideal solution for the most ambitious projects. Shows and lighting scenes can be controlled via the internal web server with either a mobile device or a web browser. A built-in status display on the front panel communicates system notifications and software messages, while built-in cursor keys enable system control directly at the unit. The LCE2 can be mounted into a 19” rack.
