Whether your project or show is to entertain, to inform or to mesmerize, our range of  live output and stand alone video, audio and dmx lighting players offers a reliable way to run your show.  Their use is unlimited and we have sold, customised and help install systems in all sorts of attractions from zoned interactive areas in museums, theme park attractions, rides and shows, exhibition stands and shows, live music venues, circus tours and event production companies and many more places.

Our range of live and stand alone playout units feature solid-state show controllers built for playback of synchronous audio, video, animation, lighting, and mechanical action. .Each unit in the range can operate stand-alone or can connect with Venue Magic SC+ and can be programmed to receive input from a variety of sensors such as buttons, pressure mats, PIRs and many other input devices and code.

They are designed for daily operation in harsh environments, 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 or simply begin from a button, UDP command via a touchscreen or theatre automation system.
