Don't apologize for being a Control FREAK

NEO Lighting Control Console

The NEO lighting control console is the closest that a designer can get to actually touching the light; encompassing the dreams and aspirations of both professionals and amateurs alike. The NEO lighting control console starts with the inclusion of many timesaving features, allowing the user to program faster and more accurately.clientuploads/NEO_Webinar Button.jpg

Icons and Shutter controls are represented graphically on the display, saving time and presenting meaningful data to the operator. Floating Windows allow the operator to configure their views their way, making it easier to find information. Effects are revolutionized, with “Time Line” features, allowing drag and drop to create that perfectly timed sequence.

The show is even secured on a “Mission Critical” grade SQL server, ensuring no data loss in those critical moments. Boot time is massively reduced with high speed solid state disk drives, making the NEO lighting control console robust for everyday and touring use.

With individually controlled back lit keys, motorized faders, user security system, pixel mapping and media playback: we think you will find the NEO lighting control console a worthy successor to a proud history of iconic consoles that have had the honor of bearing the Strand Lighting and now Philips Strand Lighting name.

Philips Advantage DMX

Image of Neo Control Light Console with KeyboardEvery NEO lighting control console also benefits from the all new Philips Advantage DMX model. This concept allows you to patch Philips Entertainment and Color Kinetics brand luminaires without consuming the console’s purchased DMX outputs. It does not matter if you own or rent the luminaires; as long as the one of the supported Philips brands. 

With Philips Advantage DMX, you can control thousands of Philips luminaires at no additional cost or output license limitations.

Philips Advantage DMX Overview (example):

  • A NEO lighting control console is purchased with 1 universe of 512 DMX outputs.
  • The purchased universe of 512 DMX outputs is patched to dimmers or other DMX controlled products.
  • Philips Entertainment Group luminaires (sold separately) are 

 patched to any other DMX universe. Philips Entertainment Group luminaires (regardless if you own or rent them) will not count against any of the purchased channels unless patched to the purchased DMX universe.
