Cognito² offers easy and intuitive programming that makes control over incandescent dimmers, moving lights and color-changing LEDs a breeze. Cognito² solves the complex task of programming shows that include incandescent dimmers, moving lights, and color-changing LED fixtures. Featuring a streamlined, natural language interface to guide you through selecting lights, adjusting their attributes, and recording reference libraries, memories and cues. Once programmed, the show is played back manually or by using show control, time code or scripting inputs.
With up to four universes of control and a new display output for a high definition external monitor, Cognito² doubles up on the capabilities of what is quickly becoming the go-to console for small to medium size churches, schools and other halls of public assembly.
