GAM Plexus is designed to convert a PC into a complete lighting control system able to handle conventional lights, moving lights or any device that can be controlled from DMX, ACN 1.31, or ArtNet Signals. The software is designed to be highly intuitive in function and simple in use and is based in “Magic Sheet” paradigm. The program’s interface can be configured to a user’s needs: fixtures, groups, or other kinds of controls can be positioned on screen in a way that makes sense to the user. Multiple program screens increase the visibility of information and options for organization.

Integrated libraries include popular light fixtures, most moving lights, and the top three lines of color and patterns. Users can also build custom fixture assemblies and add them to the library.

A fully-functioning demo version of GAM Plexus software can be downloaded any number of times on any number of computers, but to operate the actual control equipment users will need the security key to be plugged into the computer running the equipment, otherwise DMX values will go to zero every few minutes. That is the only limit on the program without the security key, however, so users can plan, layout, and edit shows on multiple computers and simply transfer the files to the show computer to run. Upgrades to the software are free of charge for the first year. New fixtures and other library additions will be made available free of charge.
