FB4 Beam Content Pack 1.0
Take your console controlled laser shows to the next level!
We are pleased to announce the release of our FB4 Beam Content Pack! Providing you with 1500 cues stored on the FB4's memory, that can be directly controlled from a lighting console.
The content pack was designed for as many use cases as possible. It starts off with 80 basic cues (gobos) that are simple to use with console effect engines, making the lasers operate like a standard lighting fixture.
Then we added over 500 unique cues that include effects such as laser lines, waves, circles, spokes, points and more! All designed to help you build more powerful laser shows. Each cue has been hand crafted to perfection by eliminating tails, creating perfect loops, and optimizing all cues to run at nearly the FPS as one another.
To get started, you'll need to download the content pack and upload it to your FB4 media sever. Watch our installation guide and download all required materials by clicking the button below.FB4 Beam Content Pack
CITP Control Protocol
CITP is a protocol designed to communicate between lighting consoles and media servers, in our case we are using CITP to transfer thumbnails and cue names to your lighting console to give you pictures inside of your console for programming. This makes selection much easier without the need to reference either software, or document back and forth to find the exact cue you are looking for.CITP ManualWIKI Link
sACN - Control Protocol
sACN has been added to beyond as a new way to send DMX512 Data for input and output, giving you improved reliability, efficiency and frame-rate. It's become a more popular protocol in the recent years over Artnet because of its advantages. You can find it as an option under “DMX/ Art-Net Setup” Window inside of BEYOND.sACN Manual WIKI Link
