Celebrating 5 years of wireless lighting control on iOS!

Advanced creative lighting control for Live Entertainment, Film/TV production, Architecture and beyond.

Luminair is the ultimate lighting control tool for live entertainment, film/tv production, architecture, and for anyone else who works with creative lighting. It's a full-featured lighting control platform, capable of controlling all DMX compliant gear including LED fixtures, conventional lighting, dimmers, media servers, and more, using any Art-Net or sACN to DMX interface.

- Wireless Magic
Wireless connectivity allows you to be unchained from your gear. Luminair is built on top of open industry standards, and transmits DMX over Wi-Fi using Art-Net and/or sACN E1.31 protocols, making it compatible with lots of existing DMX interfaces and other lighting gear.

- Projects + iCloud
Luminair's new project system periodically saves your files in the background, so you never have to manually save again. The new interactive project manager shows you a preview image of all of your files. Luminair also now works with iCloud, for seamless syncing of project files between multiple iOS devices.

- Powerful multi-touch controls
Luminair has a brilliant and refined user-Interface, with powerful touch-optimized controls for working with individual channels, as well as multi-channel fixture profiles. Some of the highlights include wide fader controls, large trigger buttons, RGB and CMY color pickers, XY controls with accelerometer support, and easy touch-based channel assignment.

- Stacks Playback
Luminair offers continuous automated show playback with Stacks, making it very easy to put together shows for a wide variety of uses. Creating looks and playing back shows is a similar process as creating an iTunes playlist. Scenes are added to a stack, each with their own individual hold and fade time.

- Timing FX
Apply new Timing FX options like Sound Active, Tap Tempo, or Global Timing to control Stack playback. Sound-active mode can detect sounds over the built-in microphone or other audio input hardware and trigger your Luminair lighting shows. Sound Active mode also supports Inter-App Audio (IAA) on iOS 7.

- Smart Ready
Luminair can now control smart lights right alongside your DMX-controlled lighting. Great for an additional design element in Film/TV production, architectural/installations, and so much more. Luminair supports Philips Hue, "Friends of Hue" LED lights, as well as "Smartlink" compatible Living Colors lamps.
