ETC releases new mobile remote apps for Eos family consoles

Date Posted: 8/18/2017

iRFR and aRFR Mobile Apps

Eos family control becomes even more versatile with the release of the newly-upgraded iRFR and aRFR iOS and Android mobile applications. Both remote apps boast fully-redesigned user interfaces, more intuitive connectivity and an expanded feature set, including a full-feature keyboard and direct selects. This redesign is available as a free update for anyone who has previously purchased the iRFR or aRFR application. Note that software v2.6 must be installed on the host Eos device (console, RPU, laptop, etc) for these revised applications to work.

All app sale proceeds will be donated to charities that support lighting and theatre professionals in need. There are two versions of each app: one supporting Behind the Scenes (BTS), a US-based charity that assists production personnel in need, and one supporting Backup, a UK-based equivalent.

The existing apps – renamed iRFR Classic and aRFR Classic – will be available as free downloads. The iRFR Preview is unchanged. 

Cobalt users take note: only the Classic apps are compatible with Cobalt family consoles. If an inadvertent update occurs, users can revert to the previous software free of charge by downloading the appropriate Classic version.
