Made to run

24/7/365

We designed LightAct hardware and software with 24/7/365 operation in mind.

Our Sync & Solo servers have a global 5-year on-site next-business-day warranty, so you’ll never have to send them back to us for repairs.

And check out the entire suite of our software. It includes tools for installation management and monitoring that you will love!

Did you know you can download LightAct free of charge and use it to design & work on your show? It comes with all features enabled and you only need to pay when you need to remove the watermark.

Made for

Interactive

LightAct is rooted in interactivity. Its node-based Layer Layouts visual scripting system allows you to create ever-evolving shows easily and intuitively.

Create non-linear shows based on variables, conditional logic and dozens of 3rd party integrations.

Everything is adjustable and programmable.

No software in AV business works alone.

That’s why we made sure LightAct works with dozens of different file formats and input/output protocols.

With you

All the Way

You can use LightAct from the beginning of your project all the way to its completion.

During the design phase, you’ll use its visualization capabilities to get your client on-board. Then you’ll work with the Timeline and Layer Layouts to program your amazing show. 

Just before leaving the site, you’ll set up LightAct Manager and WebUIs to take care of your installation throughout its lifetime.
