Main Features

Seriously, what’s so special about Lightjams?  It’s all about handling all sorts of external signals and generating the lighting in real-time. The signals can be someone playing the drums and signing, or it can come from other devices sending pre-recorded messages via MIDI, OSC and DMX. With Lightjams, you have everything you need to create a fully interactive experience using the real-time features or a fully automated show using cuelists, scripting and scheduling. And one last thing, if you’re into pixel mapping and merging video and lights, Lightjams can do wonders!

Lightjams is used by hundreds of people right now in nightly events and permanent installations. All its great features and unique abilities make it a ridiculously good deal for all lighting professionals and enthusiasts!
