New Mosaic v2.4 software and Mosaic Touchscreen Station
Mosaic version 2.4 software
The premiere product for lighting control and media effects on a grand scale just got better. The newest version of Mosaic software – 2.4 – is here, and includes features big and small, including a new type of timeline, RGB over DALI control, and more.
Timeline has undergone the biggest change in Mosaic v2.4 – adding a real-time 24-hour timeline option. The new timeline starts at midnight and ends at midnight one day later. This real-time timeline makes it very easy to program effects based on any given hour of the day, and includes all events within one timeline, removing the need for multiple timelines and triggers.
The new real-time timeline also includes waypoints that automatically adjust to astronomical events. For example, events can be set to run from sunrise to sunset, and the software will automatically adjust the timing of events to fill the time, whether it’s a long summer day or in the middle of winter.
Other new features include the addition of I/O module support to distribute custom triggers to external programs, a newly re-designed patch to make setup easier, simple RGB control over DALI, bug fixes and optimisations.
Mosaic v2.4 is available for download now. Current generation Mosaic products already in the field can be upgraded.
