Pathway Connectivity launched the Cognito2 Lighting Console featuring a much faster control processor, HDMI external monitor port and channel expansion up to 2048 channels (4 universes). Show files between the original Cognito and v2 are completely interchangeable as they both run the same software. To top the new release off, Cognito 2 has been reduced in price. Special pricing is available on existing inventory of v1 if interested.
The latest version of Cognito software (dated Sept. 25 2014) features global timing updates for active playlists. External midi time code triggers are now supported as well as up to three separate internal time code clocks. The internal clocks can be triggered via external serial commands or contact closure. The playlist timing can also be memorized during real time recording and later recalled for future playback.
Pathway has also released Choreo Controller (Cognito in a 3-gang LCD wall box). It’s ideally suited for restaurants, lobbies, museums and ballrooms that feature entertainment lighting products controlled by DMX, pathport, ArtNET, sACN, KiNET. The LCD can access an unlimited number of rooms and recall playlists from its on board processor. No longer do you have to bring in a console to update the show, Choreo is a full feature, self-support processor that will allow for instant editing of intensities, color, position and timing. Scenes can also be externally triggered through a series of inputs including DMX, serial, telnet or simple contact closure.
Pathway was excited to announce the Snap Panels, 0-10v control coupled with up to 16 relay circuits, is now in production.
