TPC

eDMX Controller with touch screen, 1 Universe.


Any further information, please contact us

The Pharos TPC (Touch Panel Controller) is an elegant lighting controller with a customisable, 4.3″ capacitive touch screen, 512 channels of eDMX output and vast interfacing potential, all over a single Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) network connection. TPCs are available in a range of different coloured bezels and overlays.

Put Pharos in the room with the award winning Touch Panel Controller’s sleek styling, advanced lighting playback engine and fully integrated user interface.

With control of playback selection and lighting levels at your fingertips you can gracefully transition between scenes, timelines, effects and pixel-mapped media. The customisable touch screen user interface lets you create multiple pages of controls, configure their appearance and get immediate visual feedback.
