Visual Productions has released a tool for creating personality files for Cuelux, this tool - the 'Builder' - is available for Mac OS and Windows and is free for download at http://www.visualproductions.nl/downloads.html
The Builder offers a friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface) for creating and editing personality files. Users can amend existing fixtures or start building their own fixtures from scratch. The personality files (sometimes referred to as 'profiles') are visualized by a coloured diagram to indicate typical mistakes when inputting a the fixture's DMX table; like overlapping channels and values. Personality files created with the Builder can be used directly by Cuelux, the Builder also features an upload function to send the newly created file to Visual Productions' server to be included in the next software release.
With the release of the Builder application Visual Productions is still continuing its free-of-charge service to create personality files on user's request, however, the Builder is specifically addressing situations where personalities are required outside office hours.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of FACE as our Distributor in Belgium. The intention for this collaboration was confirmed during Prolight+Sound in Germany earlier this year. CEO, Karel de Piere and Sales Manager, Geert Custers visited the Visual Productions stand to place their first order for stock of Cuelux and confirm the deal.
FACE is the result of the merger of Ampco Belgium and Candela. Specializing in audio, lighting and video they provide hardware, software and services to the professionals, the project market and their dealer network which are active in the entertainment, communication and architectural markets.
The FACE headquarters hosts, not only a seminar room but also a try out theatre: the ideal venue for Cuelux to run “Plug&Play” alongside the Behringer BFC 2000 MIDI desk also distributed by FACE.
Cuelux software lighting control fits well to the profile of FACE, offering an inexpensive controller that is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS, the latter often required in the DJ market and made available through their long established dealer network. Our Sales Manager Zoe Castle believes that with “Custers’ enthusiasm for software control, knowledge of the market and innovation, will help make Cuelux at FACE an interesting and fun partnership to work with”.
Geert Custers, head of FACE Visuals, sites their interest in representing Visual Productions on the Belgium market as: “We believe Cuelux is an ideal lighting tool for the young but demanding generation of light DJ’s and it works perfect for both live shows or fixed installs. The plug & play set up with versatile application tools that work on all operating softwares for an affordable price. Although this market is filled with multiple products already we believe CUELUX always stays one step in front of the competition and is the best buy at this moment. That’s why we wanted to have it in our portfolio”.

Cuelux software lighting control is now available for the Ubuntu Linux operating system. Ubuntu is the most popular distribution of open-source Linux OS. It’s free-of-charge and renowned for it’s stability.
Cuelux is a cost-effective DMX512 lighting controller for intelligent, conventional and LED lighting. It offers a darkened and touch screen optimized graphical user interface, industry-standardized cuelist system, iPhone remote control and can be used in 10 different languages. Cuelux has Plug&Play support for MIDI control surfaces that include fader wings, motorized faders and button stations.
With the new software release for Linux, Cuelux is now a truly multi-platform lighting software package; Cuelux was already available on Mac OSX and MS Windows (with both 32 bit and 64 bit drivers available). The advantage of a multi-platform system is that every user can choose his own preferred operating system in which he feels technically comfortable and in the case of Linux, even reducing the cost of the computer system and increasing the reliability.
We will showcase Cuelux for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows during the PLASA2010 tradeshow in London on the Visual Productions stand, Hall 1 G23.
Cuelux for Linux – and the other operating systems – can be downloaded from the Cuelux website.
Visual Productions will be exhibiting at this year's PLASA tradeshow in UK. The show runs from Sunday 12 September through to Wednesday 15 September at Earls Court in London.
You are welcome to visit us and can find us at our stand in Hall 1 - G23. Look out for us on the Visual-purple coloured stand that shows software lighting control for Mac, Windows and Linux.
We look forward to seeing you in London.

We are pleased to announce that we are one of the first software lighting control manufactures to overcome the incompatibilities of working with 64 bit Windows 7. Cuelux software lighting control is now more than ever proving to be a platform independent system that can be used on Windows and Mac operating systems.
We have made a Cuelux driver for all 64 bit versions of the Windows operating systems, XP, Vista and the new Windows 7. At the time of Vista, 64 bit versions gained popularity; now with the release of Windows 7 roughly half of all Windows 7 systems sold are 64 bit.
Developer Maarten Engels explains: “A key design goal for Cuelux was to offer cross-platform support, which we had already achieved for 32 bit windows and Mac OS. We are very excited about adding support for 64 bit windows, making the unique cross-platform feature even stronger.”
The new release of Cuelux is now available to download from our downloads page here.
