Introducing Horatio

We’re excited to finally be able to announce the new product we’ve been developing for the last few months:  say hello to Horatio!

Horatio

Horatio is a manufacturer agnostic system that integrates with your lighting network and monitors all devices in order to send you alerts when your system isn’t working as it should.

Horatio dramatically increases your visibility of the inner workings of a lighting system from wherever you are, using the rack-mounted Horatio Bridge Device to link your lighting network to a variety of monitoring tools on the horat.io website. This web interface allows you to monitor almost anything through your ethernet network; supported protocols currently include ARP, TCP, CITP, RDM , DMX, Lyntec RPC, Syslog, and OSC.

We’re currently beta testing, and we expect to ship the first Horatio Bridge Devices in January 2016. I’ll have a beta unit with me at LDI this week, though, so drop me a line if you’d like to check it out, or visit horat.io for more details.

 

Benedum Center Cue Light Panel

Our Prospero Cue Light Controllers are usually used by Broadway shows and tours, but they also work great as part of a theatre’s in-house system.

The Benedum Center here in Pittsburgh recently built a new stage manager’s panel, and we provided them with a custom cue light control system for it. In addition to a stock Prospero Controller, we also built them a set of custom switches with RGB LEDs. Our typical lens changing system allows the user to choose from one of five color options, while the Benedum’s custom stiches allow each indicator light to be individually set 7 colors without changing lenses. So many choices!
