ControlNodes  – Stand Alone Attraction & Show Control Units

A simple and effective stand alone show control solution for your themed attraction, escape room, scare maze, museum or exhibition.

Whether your project or show is to entertain, to inform or to mesmerise, our range of live output and stand alone video, audio and dmx lighting ControlNodes offers a reliable way to run your show. Their use is unlimited and we have sold, customised and helped install systems in all sorts of attractions from zoned interactive areas in museums, theme park attractions and rides, exhibition stands, live music venues, circus tours and event production companies to name a few.

Our range of ControlNodes feature solid-state show controllers built for playback of synchronous audio, video, animation, lighting, and mechanical action. Each unit in the range can operate stand-alone or can connect with Venue Magic Professional (SC+) and can be programmed to receive input from a variety of sensors such as buttons, pressure mats, PIRs and many other input devices and code.

They are designed for daily operation in harsh environments, built to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Shows can be set to loop on power-up; be triggered internally by other timelines, digital or analog inputs or simply begin from a command via a touchscreen or automation system.

Although ControlNodes can be used individually they are much more than a collection of independent controllers running standalone. They can also talk to each other and work together to create a complete interactive system.  Imagine being able to use any input or control any of the outputs from any of the ControlNodes on the network, wherever they are in the attraction.  Gone are the days where you need to run miles of DMX, Audio, or other cables which will bring down the entire attraction if it fails. With ControlNodes you can distribute your attraction across multiple nodes which is responsible for its own part of the show but is able to cue actions in other ControlNodes as well.

It means that if a single controller goes down, it doesn’t take the whole show with it.  ControlNodes can also be setup with redundancy so if one controller fails, another can take its place quickly and easily.

With ControlNodes you can easily create sophisticated, interactive shows which run reliably, require less cabling and are more cost effective than some single-controller show systems currently on the market.

ControlNode Versions:

The ControlNode is an absolute powerhouse! It has 48 channels of Inputs and Outputs, an audio output, HDMI out for up to 4k video and 512 DMX output!  Combine that with the ability to simultaneously playback up to 20 timelines at the same time with plenty of other amazing features such as channel routing, events and variables.
