Lighting Product Of The Year, Control Software: Enttec LED Mapper Release 221


Live Design has named its top products of the past year again. Chosen by our panels of prestigious judges in three categories—lighting, projection, and sound—several months were spent debating the Live Design 2016-2017 Products Of The Year.

Enttec calls LED Mapper “the easiest way to pixel map your ideas.” With its latest release at this past LDI, it caught the attention of our judges, with one calling it “a great piece of software for controlling large quantities of LED tape, for example, allowing free-form splines and arrangements in a lightweight Windows app with multiple protocols integrated, as well as Spout capability for distributing content from other sources and standard media playback engine.” Newly added features that the judges particularly like include the option to play audio from a file, remote control via http, and the ability to set a different network adapter for Art-Net input and output.

Products of the Year will be presented along with the Live Design Achievement Awards and the tenth annual Excellence in Live Design Awards during a ceremony, sponsored by GLP and Meyer Sound, on June 12 in New York.
