The ProCommander™ Series features solid-state show controllers built for playback of synchronous audio, video, animation, lighting, and mechanical action. The controllers’ flexible architecture options and open control protocols allow inspired attractions to be designed without hardware limitations.

Designed for daily operation in harsh environments, ProCommanders are built to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Shows can be set to loop on power-up; be triggered internally by other timelines, digital or analog inputs; wait to sync with incoming SMPTE timecode; or simply begin from a UDP command via a touchscreen or theater automation system

The ProCommander ES™ provides the essential control points you need. Harnessing all the logic functionality of the ProCommander 2, the ProCommander ES is a powerful solution for applications requiring fewer I/O’s

  • Real-time clock and scheduler
  • Balanced Stereo Audio
  • 8 digital outputs
  • 16 digital inputs
  • 6 RS-232 serial ports

The ProCommander™ LX is a full-functioned, multi-scene, multi-channel playback controller. Capable of up to 16 channels of synced playback or 8 independent stereo zones, this device can power a large theater show or an entire museum of independently zoned show playback.

Building off the ProCommander™ 2, the LX starts with digital, analog, serial, and UDP inputs and outputs. It adds an asynchronous universe of DMX input and output, and it can add, merge, combine or take over DMX values from any of its multiple internal shows, as well as incoming DMX values from a DMX console or environmental lighting system. These features allow for complex integration opportunities.

When it comes to managing large synchronized shows, the LX has no match. Either sourcing 16 channels of audio and SMPTE or synchronizing multiple zones of animation, lighting and show action through incoming SMPTE, complex show control has never been better.

  • 16 channels of high quality audio output
  • Multiple shows and zones can be accessed simultaneously on separate audio pairs
  • 1/4″ TRS Balanced Audio Outputs
  • Blue LCD status information display
  • UDP Network connection for programming, triggering shows and diagnostics
  • USB connection
  • 5-pin DMX input/output
  • 4 high analog outputs
  • 8 Stereo Class-D Amplifier (optional)
  • SMPTE timecode input and output allows all shows to “jam sync” or source from a master show signal
  • Fits 1RU rack space

ProCommanders are configurable through our free Hardware Configurator, replacing complicated command prompts with a simple user interface. For more advanced programming, you can use a supported timeline programming application to program and playback synchronous audio, video, animation and lighting. You can also custom build your own tools through Director, Flash, Flex and other environments capable of sending ASCII commands over UDP.

An asynchronous command structure employs UDP messaging through simple ASCII and HEX commands, opening integration possibilities to nearly any available system—and enabling you to build innovative, interactive exhibits.

 Once a show is programmed, ProCommanders can store all shows on a single memory card. All shows can be managed by either the onboard serial ports or through our bi-directional ASCII command protocol via UDP.
