The Show Designer 2 is a lighting controller based on the successful and simple to use Show Designer. The Show Designer 2 expands on the existing features and adds several others. The approach of this DMX controller is to simplify the programming process as much as possible while still offering a high level of control at a low cost.

48 lighting fixtures of up to 32 channels each can be controlled using two DMX 512 outputs. Control of up to 1024 DMX lighting channels is possible. Support of Elation and American DJ lighting fixtures as well as other popular brands is included in the setup menu. Additional lighting fixture profiles can also be downloaded from the Elation web site.

The operating system of the Show Designer 2 lighting controller uses flash memory so that the software can be updated from a computer or the optional floppy disk drive. Software updates will be made available on the Elation Lighting web site at
