Here is the new Cognito DMX Lighting Console from Pathway Connectivity. This new controller features up to 1024 output channels, as well as no practical limit on the number of memories, cues, or playlists.

Natural language control comes to lighting programming.  Never again will you need a DMX look-up chart. Cognito won’t intimidate the less-experienced user and won’t disappoint the most demanding professional.

The CognitoTM console solves the complex task of programming shows for systems that include incandescent dimmers, moving lights and color changing LED fixtures. Cognito is network-ready and features a streamlined user interface to guide you through the process of selecting lights, adjusting their attributes, and recording reference libraries, memories and cues. Once programmed, the show is played back manually or with sequenced playlists.
