e:cue lighting control introduces the Lighting Control Engine (LCE)

Date Announced: 22 Jun 2010

e:cue lighting control – An OSRAM Company, introduces the Lighting Control Engine (LCE), its high‐performance lighting control server, which combines the interactivity of the previous Media Engine 2 and the optimum performance of the Lighting Control Server (LCS1).

Designed to control large and complex projects, the LCE is a high performance server with the new e:cue Lighting Application Suite 5.2 installed. A central control unit, this versatile lighting control server orchestrates all devices and fixtures within a project. With the ability to output DMX/RDM, e:net, and other protocols such as Art-Net and KiNET, and the capability to integrate various audio/video, external triggering, and other desired devices and content, the LCE is the ultimate solution for the most demanding projects. A built‐in touch screen monitor housed on the front panel of the attractive, durable aluminum casing provides user interaction with custom graphic user interface designs. The LCE can be mounted in a 19” rack and controls of up to 65,536 DMX channels.

Built‐in touch screen for user control and monitoring
Use the touch screen monitor for customized graphical User Interfaces (Action Pad), including pictures, buttons, and faders with various colors, shapes, and patterns. This screen can also be used for monitoring lighting installation parameters and status of various devices in a lighting control system.

Outputs a variety of Ethernet‐based protocols
Apart from directly outputting DMX, e:net, Art‐Net/KiNET, the LCE can also communicate via RDM using the Butler XT as an interface.

Numerous triggering options
Integrate various technologies and devices for triggering and external control via RS232, DMX, MIDI, Ethernet (UDP), SMPTE Timecode, and digital dry contact inputs. Furthermore, the lighting show file running on the LCE is also triggered via a real‐time astronomical clock and an integrated web server for remote control via a web browser.

Integrate media content
Easily integrate audio and video into your lighting project through audio/video files, or external media content via audio/video hardware devices. Use two media players to replay and transition between two video files.

Reliable uninterrupted operation
The LCE is designed to work without interruption ensuring permanent installations run smoothly. It is used in many projects around the world where reliability is critical. Additional LCEs can be configured to back up the master LCE to run the complete installation in the event of failure. Both LCEs are synchronized; the backup LCE takes over from where the main LCE was interrupted.
