Software FAQ’s

You will need a Windows PC or laptop running Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. We will provide all cabling required to connect to your computer.

We would only supply the PC/laptop if we were providing a technician to operate; for all other times we would just install the software onto your PC/laptop.

We will show you at the time of installation how to connect the software to the stage and how to set up and activate programmed moves. The software is very simple to use and in most cases only a 30 minute tuition period is required.

You can control up to 8 separate stages from the same software program, which can also run multi revolves.

DMX cannot be used to control moving items. It can only be used for programming lighting and sound as it has no feedback for error checking. Revolvesolve is a stand alone system that is capable of outputting DMX signals so that lighting and sound can be activated from our software.

It is possible to locate the computer up to 30m away from the centre of the revolving stage.
