LightChannel has a simple goal.. to make your focus sessions easier and more efficient.
Import channel information from Vectorworks(™) (see below) and LightChannel sorts your rig by bar/pipe, channel number, or unit number, or real world position as drawn on your plan. Connect LightChannel to an Eos console and the app becomes a super-simple remote, also marking which channels are focused as you go along. See what you have and haven’t focused at a glance, and what percentage of the rig is left to get to. LightChannel is excellent for time management and keeping you focused (*sorry) on the task in hand.

You can edit channel information as you go along, it’s super easy to change channel information such as gel or channel numbers or bar positions. You can also add focus information for later reference.

Privacy policy
LightChannel won’t collect user data, won’t require an account or email address to function. Simply put , I don’t want your data – it’s too much hassle, I’d rather spend the time working on new app features, and lighting shows.
