Luminair 3 received a positive overview in March’s Technical Focus article in Lighting & Sound America magazine. Richard Cadena used Luminair with ELC’s Buddy DMX interface, and in the article he covers some of the new features and revamped user interface in version 3.
“One of the main reasons I like this controller is because it’s mobile app that can be used wirelessly, which affords a lot of freedom of movement.” – Richard Cadena, LSi Magazine

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…)
Luminair v3.3 has been released today and includes some great new feature additions that promise to make the designing experience better than ever. To celebrate this new release, Luminair In-App Purchase extras are also now on sale for 50% off through March 31, 2016!
First and foremost among the new features in v3.3 is Fixture Linking, which allows you to more easily link and control multiple identical fixtures together. Not only can you control identical fixtures in unison, but you can also choose which specific parameters to link. All of these options are saved on a scene by scene basis, so you can effectively manage both individual and linked fixture options without any compromises to the functionality you’ve grown accustomed to.

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.
