Avolites will be releasing its software control system Synergy worldwide on 16 October 2019.

Synergy allows lighting designers ‘full visibility and control’ over both the lighting and video components of a multi-media performance.

Synergy allows users to pull control of pre-created screen surfaces and layers into a Titan-based lighting console and create surfaces in an Ai media server from within the console interface. All operations use Avolites’ Titan Net protocol on the user’s chosen hardware.

The software’s new Lightmap feature allows users to stream Ai video colour data through any colour-mixing fixture group, instantly integrating them into a larger video canvas. Everything from high-res LED screens to LED fixture groups can be controlled from the single User Interface, simply by selecting the group and choosing Ai in the pixel mapper.

Synergy also allows for live video previews of up to six simultaneous streams from the media server either as layer previews or screen outputs, inside the Titan interface, giving users full control no matter where the servers are located. Synergy’s media browser allows content to be selected and uploaded to specific locations on connected servers from the console interface, ready to play as soon as it’s uploaded and/or converted to AiM.

Sales Manager for Avolites Stephen Baird-Smith said: “From high profile rock shows to corporate presentations, lighting designers are being asked to increasingly combine lighting and video elements together for maximum impact,”

“As the only company in the industry that has both a lighting console platform and a media server range, we are ideally placed to bring them together into the same interface and are delighted with the new creative possibilities we have already seen realised from the beta program.”

The beta version of Synergy has already been used at multiple events, including at the last Gary Numan tour, Glastonbury, Hospitality In The Park & Abode, and even by Everlast Productions in the US to project an image of the White House at a corporate event.
