Release Notes

Use the web interface to manually create static scenes, RGB(W). Create Effects & Gradients. Alternatively, you can record up to 32 eDMX universes through either sACN, Art-Net, or two physical universes using the S-PLAY’s rear DMX ports.
Using the intuitive timeline editor, multiple recordings and scenes can be stitched together whilst adding popular AV specific triggers such as OSC, UDP, contact closure and more, allowing the S-PLAY to integrate into the heart of any control system.
Play back multiple shows simultaneously using the internal scheduler, your own custom user interface, or when triggered in real time by building automation software (e.g. Control4), iPad Apps, pressure pads, motion detectors, push buttons and much more!

S-PLAY glossary

  • CUE: The basic building block of your show – can be a static scene, an effect/ generated generated by the S-Play, or a dynamic recording.
  • TRIGGER: Control information transmitted into the S-Play, allowing for the activation of a cue/playlist.

Say hello to S-PLAY:
The smart controller for light shows.

In simple terms, think of it as being like a scene & animated effect creation engine, a 32 universe DMX recorder & playback engine and host for control interfaces that can send multiple AV specific protocols all rolled into one.

With a built-in effects generator and intuitive, onboard controls to record, edit, schedule and play scenes, you don’t have to be an experienced lighting designer or systems integrator to conjure up amazing shows using our smart light show controller, but your audience will think you are. Plug and play show control technology has never before looked so good or been this easy to master.

You can even create your own custom web interfaces too – allowing you to present your end users with as much or as little control as they need!

With countless applications from theatrical or entertainment events to architectural design and smart home integrations, the S-PLAY is the dream companion for any automation project. You can even remotely access your S-Play from anywhere in the world via the internet or a 4G router!
