The Vibe lighting console integrates conventional buttons and wheels with a dynamic touchscreen-based graphical user interface for an ergonomic and adjustable control surface. It aims to bring the intuitive interface of smart phones and tablets to lighting control. It is syntax-free and will prompt the user to enter any missed information. Using the minimum amount of physical buttons, the touchscreen environment allows the user to layout the desktop with buttons, display windows, and playbacks. Different desktops can be configured for different parts of the show or for different users. There are no theoretical limits to the number of playbacks of desktop layouts.
