DMX Controller

The Pharos LPC X (Lighting Playback Controller X) offers an extreme level of power and integration, making it an ideal solution for landmark lighting installations with significant channel counts. It integrates with the full range of Pharos products and offers an optional real-time video input.

The LPC X is a rugged 1U 19” rackmount unit with separate Ethernet interfaces for management and DMX-over-Ethernet (eDMX) output. It is available in capacities ranging from 10 DMX universes (5,120 channels) up to 100 DMX universes (51,200 channels) from a single unit, with further scaling by using multiple Controllers connected and synchronised over Ethernet.

As the big brother of the compact Pharos LPC, it is at the heart of a fully scalable Pharos system that can be tailored to the needs of your project. Additional integration options are supported by our range of Remote Devices. The LPC X is programmed using the free Pharos Designer 2 software and existing installations can be managed from anywhere using its built-in web server.
