USB TO DMX STAND ALONE INTERFACE

Thanks to its powerful Stand Alone mode, the CQSA is the definitively perfect DMX controller for all type of entertainment and architectural projects. It can play 1 to 5 Zones (scene) at a time without a computer. Hardware is compatible with LED Player, Pro DMX and Studio DMX software, so the interface is suitable for all Live applications and fixed installations.

The interface can play black a complete project without PC and the new additional SD card slot gives the possibility to extend the memory capacity. The Splitter mode can make your installation more reliable and the USB interface offer more triggering possibilities.

Users can customize the interface functions and modes, it is possible to choose what mode to activate or not in Stand alone from any of the available modes (Trigger, Page, Zone, Color, Dimmer, Speed) and load the modes of your choice in memory.
