There are a number of tutorial videos available in You Tube, about e:cue SYMPHOLIGHT 1.0. Just follow this link:
As the Triggers and Actions dialog has changed in LAS 7.0, there is a new version of the video about this topic. It introduces Conditions, a new feature in LAS 7.0
As always available in the video page.
The LAS 7.0 was released now, and one of the great features is the support of DALI ballasts and input devices. Here ist the first video about DALI ballasts. See the Downloads chapter from the menu above and scoll down.
Oops! Forgot to mention. There are five new videos in the Download area. About Triggers and Actions, Masters, the greatful Live FX dialog and much more. Just visit the Download page, there are versions as FLV and AVI files.
The tutorials relate to version 6.1, but will be usable for all future LAS releases.
DALI is an important communication interface for fixtures and controls. Compared to DMX it is much simpler with a restrichted functionality. Nevertheless, DALI is a market standard. There is a very good documentation available at DALI AG, which describes DALI in detail, but also with an overview and most important things to know. The manual is available in German and in English.
We have created some new videos about the Lighting Application Suite. At the moment, there are six videos available. Select Downloads and then Tutorials. Be aware that the videos are in 720p resolution, so your wires into the Internet should not be too thin. The AVI versions are smaller, the FLV versions much bigger, but with a better resolution.
Stay tuned, more to come soon …
The e:script coding examples from the Advanced System Manual für the Lighting Application Suite cannot be copied via Copy/Paste from a PDF file. PDF files are coded in UTF-8 code format, while the macro editor of the Programmer only understands ASCII. For this reason we have made the files available as standard text files with a .cpp extension here:

The Mobile Action Pad for iOS and Android is a great tool to control the Programmer or the Butler XT2 with a firmware version 2.x. Here is a short description how to configure the Mobile Action Pad, assumed that there are Action Pages created in the Programmer, and downloaded to the Butler XT2, if it is used with this DMX engine.
Download the app from the iTunes App Store or from the Google Play Store, search for “e:cue” to find it, install it on your smartphone or better on a tablet. Add the app to your menue to have fast access. Start the app and the following steps are the same for iOS and Android. Here shown for the Android version.
When started the first time the Mobile Action Pad does not have a previous session with a server, so it will display the server selection, there are already two sessions defined: to two test servers at ecue.com. You can use these two entries for a basic test, both are simulations, one for smartphones, one for tablets. If not in the server selection, use the «Back» button to return to it.
In the server selection, tap «Edit» in the upper right corner. All available sessions are displayed, delete sessions via the stop symbol, tap the cog wheel to edit an existing session. The cog wheel in the upper left corner are the application options.
To enter a new server, tap «Add» in the upper right corner. In the following form enter:
A symbolic name for the connection, then the address of the server. For a Butler XT2 this would be the IP address, e. g. 192.168.123.220. Use the server address, not the address of a switch or a WLAN router. For the Programmer use the IP address of the server, make sure that the HTTP server in the Programmer is enabled in the Application Options. A symbolic name like “ap.myserver.com” could only be used when a DNX server is available. In most LAS installtions this is not the case.
After entering the data, tap «Ok», check your entry and tap «Done», the server selection returns. Tap your server oder use the cog wheel to edit the entry. That’s all. With the application options via the upper left cog wheel you set few display options or you can protect access to the app with a password.
The app remembers the last valid session, so restarting the app later will first try to re-establish the last active session with a server.
