WORK PRO has announced a significant software upgrade for its LightShark DMX-based hardware lighting console, resulting in major improvements to its features and functionality. The company has also revealed that from April 2019, LightShark users can purchase a new bundle incorporating a Capture Visualizer Licence from Capture Sweden.

WORK PRO’s software version 1.1.2, which is available as a free download from the company’s website, makes LightShark even more intuitive and responsive by giving end users enhanced control over a much wider range of features. “Since launching LightShark in 2017 we have paid close attention to the functionality of our software and have already incorporated numerous upgrades,” says Juan Jose Vila, CSO of Equipson, WORK PRO’s parent company. “Software version 1.1.2 seamlessly integrates all of these developments and adds many more, thus considerably improving the user experience.”

Available in two versions - the LS-1, which includes a hardware console, and the more affordable LS-Core – LightShark is an intermediate lighting control product that offers completely integrated hardware and software control via smartphones and tablets. It can handle up to 4192 DMX channels and works with industry-standard DMX and Artnet lighting protocols, enabling easy integration into existing production environments and lighting rig.
