Small rigs rock with hands-on moving light controls

previous next

SmartFade ML provides professional features like palettes, parameter “fan” and built-in dynamic effects with an easy-to-learn direct-access style of operation. With a capacity for up to 24 moving lights and an additional 48 intensity channels (dimmers), and the ability to patch to two complete universes of DMX512A (1,024 outputs), SmartFade ML gives you all the control you need for smaller rigs.

SmartFade ML’s color-coded backlit keys make it easy to operate in the dark, without requiring additional worklights. The keys and built-in LCD displays also provide status feedback for the rig, without the need for an external monitor.

Get smart – get moving, with SmartFade ML moving light control.
