This advanced lighting board is based on the successful and easy-to-use Elation Professional Show Designer 1 and 2. The Show Designer 3 expands on the existing features and adds several others. The approach of this light controller is to try to simplify the programming process as much as possible while still offering a high level of control at an affordable cost. This full-size universal DMX controller offers you both power and flexibility for all your programming applications.

The Show Designer 3 makes programming simple and fast. A Compact Flash drive makes backing up programs, adding fixture profiles and software updates a snap. The latest fixture profiles can be downloaded off the Elation Professional website.
