POLL: What’s Your Lighting Control Surface of Choice?


A conversation I had about programming “ambidexterity” and console choice the other day has been sticking in my mind like white on rice, a glass of milk, and a paper plate in a snowstorm.  I’m curious as to what the JimOnLight.com Community as a whole considers its favorite console or consoles.

Please participate in this quick little poll below – if you’re a JimOnLight.com RSS feed reader, come on over to the website and participate in the poll!  Choose one of the answers from the list below.

If you happen to program on something or really like programming on something NOT on this list, would you leave a comment and let us know what that console might be?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. ETC, but not because I prefer it, but ’cause it’s the only console we have at our college theatre. But, to be fair, up till now I like it pretty much.

  2. I’ve been using ETC consoles for years, so I’m most familiar with them. I have to say, the one time I used a Hog, it was not a pleasant experience. Crashing during a show is not ok. At the moment though, I’m developing my own control solution for Android (similar to Luminair for iOS). I figure I can add in any features i want that way 🙂

  3. For larger Installations I use Ecue Programmer and the pending products. For scene based lighting controls I recommend Zumtobel Emotion and DIMLITE.
