Multi-protocol architectural lighting controller


The QuadCore is a compact form-factor lighting controller for (semi-)permanent installations and architectural lighting. Part of the QuadCore family, this unit is designed for channel-heavy lighting projects such as pixel mapping. Intended for non-stop operation, the QuadCore has no moving parts; the unit is completely solid-state and achieves a remarkable level of reliability that allow lighting engineers to ‘fit and forget’ this stand-alone device.

Control the lighting

First of all the QuadCore is a lighting controller. It can playback lighting shows, static scenes and dynamic effects through its four DMX-512 universes. Featuring six independent playbacks, the QuadCore can handle lighting in multiple zones or challenging HTP/LTP requirements. The playbacks come with all the bells and whistles so you can accommodate your client’s wishes.

Record from an external DMX source

Lighting shows designed on third-party consoles can easily be recorded inside the QuadCore. It even offers features to help create seamless loops in your recording. Recording external shows can be through DMX, Art-Net or sACN.

Communicate through a range of protocols

The QuadCore offers an impressive collection of protocols. From typical lighting protocols such as DMX-512, Art-Net, sACN and KiNet.
To protocols that allow you to interact with any kind of non-lighting equipment such as GPI, MIDI, UDP, TCP & OSC. It even supports timecode protocols like SMPTE and MTC.

Program show-control automation

The autonomous behaviour of the QuadCore can be customised by flexible show-control programming. This functionality enables you to automate the show playback. You can define triggers based on any incoming protocol. And you convert signals from one protocols into another.

Apply QuadCores to small and large installs

Whereas a grid of multiple QuadCores, all networked together, meets the capacity required by large lighting systems. The QuadCore is fitted with a fluent master-slave protocol for synchronising multiple units.

Combine with other products from the family

The Quadcore is the central member of a product family that includes the CueCore2, for extended DMX universe capacity. The IoCore2, for additional GPI, GPO and RS-232 ports. The B-Station, a wall-mount button panel. The RdmSplitter, a DMX signal booster/splitter and the DaliCore for Dali fittings.
