wysiwyg R25's Luminair App Feature Plugged on Apple Website

apple-ad.jpgOut of literally thousands of popular apps for the iPhone, iPod and iPad, the latest extension for wysiwyg R25 is featured on the Apple iPhone website as part of Apple's new “Apps for Everything” campaign focusing on remote control. Essentially, the theme is that apps can make your handheld device “the ultimate remote.”

wysiwyg R25, developed by CAST Software of Toronto, Canada, is the latest update in the industry standard for professional lighting previsualisation, being heralded industry-wide as a giant leap forward. The Company added this particularly “handy” addition to R25 as a new 3rd party application extension to work with Luminair 2.0, the next generation of wireless multi-touch DMX control software for the iPhone and iPod touch, developed by Synthe FX of Cincinnati, Ohio. wysiwyg can download fixture point of view and the necessary DMX data to these handheld devices so users are able to see what a specific fixture's focus should be and adjust the fixture accordingly. Once that fixture is focused, the user can turn that light off and the next one on from the remote location viewer, leading to download and trigger abilities for looks.

Synthe FX founder and lead product developer Ryan Hisey says, “Never before have lighting professionals had the option of designing looks on a master console, recording snapshots and building a simple show that they can carry in their pocket. We are very excited to be working with CAST Software, which is a highly respected industry leader, on such a groundbreaking new feature for lighting pros.”

wysiwyg downloads are available for Members only and the Luminair app is available at the App store by searching “Luminair”. For a limited time, the app can be purchased at a 20% discount by visiting
