More wired-ethernet options in Luminair v3.4
Posted on April 21st, 2016

l4net

Today we’ve released Luminair v3.4, an update we’re referring to as the Installation edition because it adds support for two additional wired-ethernet products that can also simultaneously power iOS devices. This is going to make it easier than ever to integrate Luminair in more permanent installations such as architectural lighting, as well as a more robust solution for those who are using Luminair as a lighting console replacement.

Luminair already offers advanced scheduling capabilities, and also supports the most common control protocols (Art-Net, sACN, KiNET, etc.), but up until this day there hasn’t been a great way to integrate the app as the main control system for permanent installations due to it’s reliance on Wi-Fi communications when the iOS device is connected to power.

The good news is that there are two new products available for iOS devices which make it possible to both power the device continuously as well as provide a direct ethernet connection. (more…)

Posted on June 7th, 2015

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.

Luminair 2.5 now available on the App Store
Posted on October 23rd, 2013

Blog-Graphic-2.5
It’s a great pleasure to announce that Luminair v2.5 is now available on the App Store, as free updates to the existing Luminair for iPad and iPhone apps.

Despite it’s .5 versioning, this is probably the biggest update Luminair has ever received. For the first time ever, Luminair’s codebase is now unified across all iOS devices*. Luminair running on an iPhone is actually a brand new app, now based upon Luminair for iPad’s award-winning design, with a new UI optimized for 4″ iPhone screens on the 5, 5s, 5c, and 5th generation iPod touch. It now benefits from core-feature compatibility with Luminair running on an iPad, as well as iCloud syncing between all iOS device types.

As a result, you’re feedback has been answered. Luminair for iPad is now a universal app, newly renamed as Luminair for iOS. The iPhone-only version has also been updated to v2.5 and will still be offered for those of you not interested in using an iPad.

The new features…
One of the biggest new features in Luminair 2.5 is support for controlling Philips Hue lights right alongside DMX-controlled lighting. While these are mostly home-focused products with limitations compared to DMX-controlled lights, we think they can be utilized as design elements in things like film and TV production and architectural lighting, as well as by enthusiasts who’d like to mix and match different types of lights. Smart lights like Hue are one of the next logical steps with LED lighting control, and we intend to continue to add additional support and features for these systems in the future. Ultimately they are another tool for your designs, and we can’t wait to see the way that you use them.

The next major feature to be added is one that’s probably been requested more than any other feature since Luminair for iPad was originally released. That feature is a new Sound Active mode, part of the new Timing FX options, located in the Stacks mode toolbar. Sound Active mode can detect sounds from the built-in microphone and other audio input hardware to trigger lights show synced to music.

But we did not stop there. The new Sound Active mode also supports Inter-App Audio (IAA) on iOS 7. Luminair can receive sound from IAA supported apps to trigger your light shows. IAA is brand new on iOS 7, and new apps are being added frequently that support this functionality. For all of you iPad DJ’s out there, Algroriddm’s djay 2 already supports IAA, so you can use it as your playback source for Luminair.
