ShowTime Sequencing Suite SoftwareIn a live show, behind-the-scenes a director is going down a list and barking commands to the stage hands.  The band is listening for specific cues so they know when and what to play.  Technicians are listening for exactly when to adjust the lights, start the fog machine or initiate other special effects.  It’s all in a day’s work for the pros but if we were watching backstage it would look like total craziness.

The Light-O-Rama ShowTime Sequencing Suite takes what seems like chaotic events and makes them predictable.  Now you control the entire show so behind-the-scenes Light-O-Rama controllers can work their magic.
