Your Mission Control
HOUSTON X is the glue that binds the entire LSC Pro Range together. HOUSTON X is a monitoring and remote configuration tool that works with APS, GEN VI, MDR-DIN, LED-CV4, Mantra Mini, UNITOUR and UNITY.
Giving you the absolute authority to interrogate, monitor and instantly change parameters of connected products, HOUSTON X is the central overseer of your venue’s equipment. Quickly locate and isolate faults, monitor temperatures, phase loadings, change a channel from dimmer to power-switching mode (TruPower), save or recall show configurations – all from one central location or remotely via internet.
The spreadsheet-style user interface of HOUSTON X allows faster configuration of devices. Drag down a column to select a range of channels, then use a single mouse click to change the curve, set the mode or patch a DMX address.
Some LSC products have additional functionality enabled when licensed to operate with HOUSTON X. The GEN VI dimmers have additional dimmer curves, as well as one-click mode setting to set the unit to TruPower and AutoPower in one operation. The LED-CV4 allows 8-bit or 16-bit mode selection, as well as power limits and fade curves. The APS provides one-click mode selection for on/off/auto power/DMX control. All products allow the individual channels to be named for easy identification.
Create many different set-ups, multiple shows or even a standard house patch and change the entire venue’s dimmers and distros in a matter of seconds with a simple click of a button. No more running around a venue and resetting or reconfiguring equipment before the next show bumps in. All conveniently done from a central location, whether it is an office-based computer or portable device connected via Wi-Fi.
Designed to run on Windows and Mac platforms today, HOUSTON X will provide the added convenience of mobile technology by supporting Android and iOS tablets in the future. Carry your device with you and be alerted immediately when a fault occurs. Set or change parameters of the rig whilst you are on stage during rehearsals. No need to be hardwired connected!
