Designed to control large and complex projects, the Lighting Control Engine 2 (LCE2) is a high performance server with the Lighting Application Suite (LAS) software pre-installed. A central control unit, this versatile server guarantees uninterrupted operation as it orchestrates all devices and fixtures within a project. With integrated DMX512/RDM inputs or outputs, dry contacts, two SPDT relay outputs, the ability to output various Ethernet-based protocols, and the capability to integrate various audio/video, external triggering, RS232, SMPTE-Timecode and other desired devices and content, the LCE2 is the ideal solution for the most demanding projects. Shows and lighting scenes can be controlled remotely via mobile devices or with browser access via the built-in web server. A built-in status display on the front communicates messages while built-in cursor keys enable system control directly from the unit. The LCE2 can be mounted in a 19” rack.
