Leprecon’s aris Architectural Interface System is designed for both architectural and theatrical lighting needs. It consists of the AI-512 and optional control surfaces. Housed in 2U rackmount chassis, the AI-512 contains all necessary hardware and software to interface with and control a DMX lighting system. All DMX channels can be used for architectural or stage lighting and recalled from a number of interfaces, such as aris wall stations, DMX consoles, or aris Ethernet stations, including the 15" integrated touch computer. The software allows for energy management via astronomical clock event triggers, the creation of dynamic looks via DMX snapshots, and the ability to network the system and access it from anywhere in the world.
