Description

Entertainment Technology's Marquee™ 24/48 is a powerful, professional lighting control console especially designed for schools and universities, local theaters, churches and any other group that needs a robust yet easy-to-use lighting console. Marquee is powered by Horizon® software, a powerful lighting control software that will meet all demanding specification needs.

Marquee’s easy-to-use graphical user interface gets you start writing cues faster than ever before. Rather than using multiple screens, Marquee displays a wealth of information on a single screen, allowing the user to know what’s going on faster and more accurately than text-based consoles.

Marquee is a true tracking style console, just like the ones that have been used on Broadway for years. Marquee’s interface is clear and concise. The console is extremely powerful, and the flexibility of Marquee is phenomenal. For simple applications, Marquee can act as a standard preset desk with split fader playbacks.

The flexible hardware design of Marquee future-proofs the main components of the console. The Horizon operating system can be easily upgraded or expanded should the channel count increase sharply. Expansion ports on the back of Marquee provide seamless integration with additional fader wings or a function button array.

Designed ACN and RDM ready to keep pace with emerging industry standards, Marquee uses Ethernet to extend its channel count or provide remote output nodes any place the Ethernet in the building takes it. Because Marquee’s software feature set is upgradeable in the field, if you are ever in need of more power, channels or moving lights, you are no more than a click away from supercharging your desk.
