Artist is a multi-role lighting and show controller and is the next generation system to ShowCAD, a controller that has become a standard for the nightclub industry. ShowCAD's flexibility has also enabled it to be installed in many AV, architectural, theatrical, theme park, T.V. and film applications. Artist now pushes the envelope for show design and overall control further still. . .

A Word about Performance: The performance of a PC is dependent on the speed of the processor and of the data busses with which it communicates to memory, graphics and disk drives. In fact, these days the speed of the processor is a lot less important than the speed of the communications channel as your experience with the internet will tell you. Laptop computers run their data busses much slower in order to conserve power and therefore, are unsuitable for large DMX schemes in excess of 2 universes.
