    Your system. Your space.

    From networking to fixture configuration to a new app, the latest Eos software offers game-changing tools that allow you to quickly adjust color, device and system settings and power up your 3D programming.

  • Configure your own Fixture Color Profiles

    Fixture Color Profiles

    Having trouble matching color across fixtures of different types and manufacturers? Using a fixture type with missing or inaccurate color-calibration data? With Eos v3.2, you can take color configuration into your own hands.

    You can now enter your own field-measured or manufacturer-provided readings in Patch – allowing Eos to control your fixtures with more precision and ease. Download our step-by-step color configuration guide to learn more.

    We now also indicate fixtures that include confirmed color calibration profiles with a little CIE colorspace icon, which means we expect reasonably high-quality color control from those units.

    To prevent changes in playback as Eos color engines continue to evolve, this color configuration information is now stored with fixture profiles in the show file.

    More Color Improvements

    More Color Improvements

    In addition to the new color configuration tools, Color control has also received significant upgrades.

    As you use and build LED fixtures, Eos now dynamically generates a gamut, giving you use of the color tools with any fixture — from two-emitter white-light fixtures to eight emitters and beyond.

    We’ve also added native and virtual CIE XY controls via the color tools and command line to keep you up to date on any communication path your fixtures and your team may use.

    Network Configuration & Device Profiles in the Eos Application

    Network Configuration

    Network and other device settings have been brought into the Eos environment from the shell, allowing you real-time access without leaving your session or stopping output.

    Device settings are now stored in profiles within the show file, allowing you to bind devices for quicker configuration. When a save show is executed, all Eos Family devices in the session will have all of their current Device configurations stored – laying the groundwork for future customization. As Eos sessions continue to grow, this will save time and effort in setting up systems.

    Protocols moving into the Eos Application


    Output protocol settings have also been brought into Eos so that they can be stored and loaded from the show file. We’ve also expanded protocol features for SACN and Artnet including the addition of Unicast, per-universe priorities, priority packet disabling (DD packets), and underlying structural changes for improved performance and reliability for systems large and small. All changes can be made via the command line, making offline programming and macros a breeze.

    PLEASE NOTE: EDMX (Net2) and AVAB UDP Output protocols have been removed from v3.2. Any system needing these protocols should not upgrade to v3.2.

    Introducing Cue Alerts

    Cue Alerts

    Want to know when to expect your next “Go?” Once programmed, the new Cue Alert Timer displays a countdown to the expected time of the next manual [Go] in the same cue list. The timer won’t cause the cue to auto-follow, but it will help keep your operator – and your show – on track!

    Create Template Show Files

    Create Template Show Files

    Do you wish your rep plot patch, venue Augment3d model, color palettes and Magic Sheets would auto-load whenever you boot up a new show file? You’re in luck – Eos now supports Template Show Files.

    You can now select New From Template from the File menu, creating a copy of your template (as designated in the shell) as a new, untitled show file.Is your console in view during a performance? Brightness Presets and Extinguish mode can be called from a Macro, so you can trigger them on a Direct Select, when a cue fires, or even with timecode.

    Dynamic 3D programming with Zones

    Dynamic 3D Programming

    Eos v3.2 introduces Augment3d Zones, a revolutionary way to let your 3D environment affect your lighting. Don’t want fixtures to land on the projection screen? Would you like the lights to turn blue every time they move offstage? Zones allow you to define regions in your model space and automatically affect fixture behavior when they intersect with the zone.

    Like other objects, Zones may be added directly from the Augment3d Library and modified via Move, Scale, and Rotate. Zones can use the default behavior of Keep Dark, dousing the fixtures as they move into the Zone and fading back up when they leave. Or you can make a Zone behave with Make Bright, apply Palettes or Presets, or even trigger Macros.

    Want to use Zones with your fixed-focus fixtures? Combine them with an SEM (Scenic Element Moveable) channel to create dynamic zones that can move across your rig, affecting fixture behavior as they go!

    Track SEM in Focus Palettes

    Track SEM

    Want your lights to follow a moving object in your Augment3d model? When you patch a Scenic Element Movable (SEM) channel in Eos, you can add the SEM's channel number to the {Track SEM} property of a Focus Palette.

    When a channel is using a Track SEM Focus Palette, it will find the location of the SEM channel node and track it – indicated by a diamond icon in the label. Since you may wish to light a performer’s face instead of their shoes, you can even add XYZ offset data to change your Focus Palette’s position relative to the SEM node.

    MVR & gITF Model & Fixture Import Support

    MVR and gITF

    Want better access to build and customize your space in Augment3d? We teamed up with Vectorworks to implement direct MVR import for fixture and model data — no more plug-ins. In addition, you can import glTF from other drafting suites as well as the 50+ file formats Augment3d already supports.

    Support for Augment3d Scanner App

    Augment3d Scanner App

    Augment3d is a powerful tool, but we know that you don’t always have the time or resources to build a model of your space. Eos v3.2 supports the upcoming Augment3d Scanner App for iOS and Android, which reduces this barrier to entry by making simple room-scanning a breeze.

    The app – expected later this spring – uses your phone or tablet’s built-in AR tools to instantly create a functional working model of your space – complete with floor, ceiling, walls, doors, windows and proscenium. Import your model directly into Eos via wifi or manual file transfer, and you can be placing lights in Augment3d within minutes of walking in the door.
