Today we’ve released Luminair v3.2 for iOS, which adds support for an additional lighting control protocol… KiNET. This means that Luminair now supports simultaneous control over four separate protocols:
Art-Net, sACN E1.31, KiNET, and Hue!
KiNET is a lighting control protocol owned by Philips and is used in their Color Kinetics line of products/power supplies. CK power supplies and LED nodes have a wide range of uses and purposes, and are frequently utilized in architectural type applications. Many famous landmarks around the world, like the Empire State Building and more, rely on Color Kinetics products (and KiNET) to drive their beaufitful lighting displays.
KiNET support in Luminair means you can now control Philips Color Kinetic power supplies natively from the app using either KiNET v1 or v2 packets. Again, this is simultaneous with the other protocols that Luminair already supports (Art-Net, sACN E1.31, and Hue) so you’re free to mix and match. Luminair is an equal opportunity controller.

Let’s cut right to the chase… After 7 years of wireless lighting control over Wi-Fi connections, we’re excited to announce that Luminair 3 now supports transmitting network DMX protocols (Art-Net and sACN E1.31) through wired ethernet connections.
The newly released Luminair 3.1.1 update adds support for Redpark’s L2-NET Lightning to Ethernet cable. This Apple/MFi-certified cable converts the iOS lightning port into a standard ethernet cable, and will appeal to anyone who prefers a reliable and direct wired connection instead of Wi-Fi.
The new update also adds support for Apple’s iPad Pro Accessories (more…)
November is here, and so is Luminair 3.1 for iPad Pro!
We’ve been hard at work optimizing Luminair to take advantage of the larger screen real estate, by adding features like iOS 9 multitasking and improving general app scaling. This means that you now have more faders and buttons at your immediate disposal on iPad Pro, for a more comfortable experience.
You also now have ability to run the app side by side with other iOS apps on all supported iPad models, so you can do things like reference design notes and so much more without ever leaving Luminair.
Luminair 3 has recently been honored with an Editor’s Pick selection in Worship Leader magazine’s Best of 2015 issue!
On the topic of why they love it, the editor’s had this to say:
“…2015 has proven that tablet software can be reliable, powerful, and more versatile than their predecessors, and Luminair 3 is no exception.”
Today is the day! Luminair 3 is now available across the globe on Apple’s App Store. Luminair 3 is a brand new app for all iOS 8 devices with a redesigned user interface, LTP faders, a movement generator/FX engine, built-in Scheduling, Luminair Remote for Apple Watch, MIDI over Bluetooth LE, and tons of other new features and improvements.

The June 2015 issue of Church Production magazine includes an article “Lighting Consoles Controlled Choices”, which covers some of the different considerations to make when selecting a lighting controller for houses of worship.
Luminair for iOS is included as a solution to consider right alongside traditional consoles. The app is highlighted for it’s unintimidating user interface, and for giving users freedom to design scenes from every perspective around a venue.
