We are delighted to announce the public release of Designer 2, an exciting new evolution of our free configuration software supporting all current Pharos controllers and accessories. Available for both Mac OSX and Windows, Designer 2 offers greater functionality and an enhanced user experience. The all new software has been designed from the ground up to improve performance and workflow, while retaining the intuitive feel and reliability of the much-loved Pharos Designer software.
The extensive list of new features includes the ability to work with multiple, different fixture layouts as part of a single project; a searchable online library of fixture types; powerful copy-paste and import/export capabilities; new programmable Scenes as an alternative to Timelines; and integration of our touch panel interface editor into the Designer 2 software.
Alongside the obvious improvements to the graphical interface are wide-ranging enhancements to the underlying Pharos software in areas such as networking and show control that make the Pharos range of controllers even more powerful and versatile.
Designer 2 is freely available to download from our Designer 2 page, along with a suite of tools for migrating existing projects and controllers to the new software platform. This release is just the start of an exciting roll-out of new products and features from Pharos for the coming year.
