    This change was made to help protect the future of Lightwright.  Instead of John running/developing it by himself, he formed a new LLC with a partner.  For more info see their announcement.

Lightwright is an iconic industry standard on Broadway and in other areas of live entertainment, and was created to help designers and electricians record and keep track of the vast amount of data needed to install and maintain a lighting installation.

As the lighting world has increased in complexity due to the proliferation of moving lights and LEDs, the organizational demands on lighting designers, design assistants, and electricians has continued to grow.  Lightwright 6, for the first time, fulfills a longtime industry dream of controlling the flow of lighting data from design to console without needing to enter data multiple times by hand, while documenting up to 45,000 universes of data.

Lightwright 6 has dozens of other new features for lighting users, including a built in label maker.  To organize their shows and to provide easy identification of gear, production electricians carefully label everything, including lights, cables, breakouts, power supplies, dimmer racks, and data distribution gear.  A busy production electrician can print as many as 60,000 labels per year!  Lightwright 6's built-in label design and printing features will cut hours from the time it takes to create and print labels, utilizing a built in Avery label database.
