Technical Specs

Xpress - 100 provides the ultimate solution for lighting control. It offers the possibility of direct user control, from simple parcans to the most complex moving light, with a computer, the software and the interface. A computer is loaded with software to build and control the lighting show, connecting to the interface via a USB port.
The software is designed to be very user-friendly and can easily be used by even those whose knowledge of computers is limited. We propose a unique software, which is free for download from our web site. The software is available for Windows and MacOS. Until now,
all software upgrades are free.


The software contains several programs: dmx addressing, light scenes creation, live show, timeline show, 3D rendering, ... ControlBoard is a control panel from where you can run all these different programs. Click the program icon to start it.

Declare your lighting equipment in Setup. The library contains personality files (colors, gobos, ...) for the most common fixtures (mirror lights, moving heads, color changer, strobes, power units, ...). This library is regularly updated on our site in order to stay current with new fixture releases. If the light you are using is not included, it is easy to add and configure new ones.

With Editor, create dynamic scenes. The screen manages:
• pan/tilt movements
• colors, gobos, ...
• trychromie
• time and fade mode
• fixtures grouping
• ...
The screen looks similar to a "regular lighting desk", with advanced functions like copy, paste, insert, ...

In Generator, in a few mouse clicks, build complex lighting scenes, with pan&tilt movements and color (gobo, ...) effects, for a group of moving lights, with fanning effect.

With Live, play the show in live. Live is customizable, depending of your needs (pages, buttons, presets).
A button can trigger a light scene, a multimedia file, or a timeline.
The screen can be locked by with a password.
It is also possible to change any channels from Editor, while Live plays the show.

Timeline is a synchronized multimedia show editing software. It is able to play multiple file formats (video, picture, audio and light scenes). Drop the files into the timelines and slide them in the desired time. The possible applications are:
• basic "sound and light". The readable audio files are wav, mp3, ogg and wma format.
• "video and light" on plasma screen or video projector. The readable picture files are bmp, jpg, png, giff. The readable video files are avi, mpg, mpeg, mov, wmv.

3DView display the stage in 3 dimensions and it shows the lights moving in real time, from any point of view. Set stage size. The program has a bank of basic objects (speakers, truss, music instruments, ...). You can also import your own objects. Set position (orientation, scale, color) of each object (or fixture). It is possible to set these parameters on a group of objects. Set textures, luminosity, smoke level for more realism.

For total security, the interface can operate lights in stand-alone mode. From StandAlone, download dynamic scenes into the interface. Depending on the model, it is possible to store from 1 to 14 dynamic scenes for later recall without the need of a computer. The scenes can be swapped or added together. This system is not only ideal for backup during big shows, but also to run stand alone installations where simple use is important, like exhibitions and architectural lighting, ...

Despite the fact that these cables only do 100 channels they are built really well and sturdy and automatically connect to chauvet showxpress. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a computer controller

Elegant solution for simple DMX control, despite the price.
Supplied with no paperwork at all. Had to search web sites and blogs to get relevant info, such as: use ShowXpress software not Sweetlight (virtually the same anyway). Had problems with finding correct drivers until I found the pdf file giving a thorough and complete (and straightforward) driver installation. This should have been printed off and included in the package ( take note). Very pleased with the end result and perhaps more powerful than my simple needs of having a few static lighting scenes set up in theatre style. No equivalent hardware (for theatre lighting) on the market for the price it seems. Surprised it was much more expensive that a Chauvet Obey 6 rackmount unit which must have cost more to manufacture but hey ho, who am I to know about such things.
