New starCTRL App Delivers Lighting Design Freedom
starCTRL is a free iOS app that users can download from the Apple App Store. It allows users to control color and effects parameters of up to seven Rainbow series lights from an iPhone or iPad.
starCTRL allows users to adjust the control parameters, presets, and lighting effects of Rainbow fixtures remotely with a quick to configure Bluetooth connection. With the Rainbow lights in starCTRL Mode, the app will quickly Auto-discover all lights and be ready to control in seconds.
"The starCTRL app lets you quickly and easily set your lights." said Quasar Science CTO, Ben Dynice. "With its intuitive interface and wireless capabilities, users can control multiple parameters for multiple lights directly from the iOS device, eliminating the need for DMX or complex lighting consoles for simple lighting setups."
Three tabs within the app control all features. The Control Tab allows users to control intensity, color temperature, plus/minus green, hue, saturation, and output. The Preset Tab contains several pre-configured color settings for quick selection, and the FX Tab allows users to control built-in lighting effects and parameters to tune the lights to their exact requirements.
Other features in the starCTRL app include the ability to save and recall favorite colors and effects and a simple to use drag-and-drop function to create groups allowing control of multiple lights at the same time. Users of the app can also control the level and speed parameters for fades for smooth transitions.
