Scan Operator FX II

Scan Operator FX II

The Scan Operator FX II features a simple to operate interface allowing control of up to 12 moving lights, each with up to 16 control channels. Built upon a solid and reliable hardware platform which has fail safe memory in case of sudden power loss, the Scan Operator FX II supports a massively powerful software engine allowing fast programming of complex effects and scenes.

Within this software, the Scan Operator FX II includes an extremely powerful movement effects engine for creating dynamic effects quickly and simply.

In total, 12 different movement patterns are available, such as circles, sine waves and triangles, all of which can be programmed in up to 240 scenes. Each pattern can be individually customized to the fixtures and effect that you want to achieve with parameter control over effect size, speed, phase and more. Phase control of each pattern also allows for wave and offset effects to be created.

The Scan Operator FX II contains a simple yet intuitive user interface. Encoder wheels and direct timing faders add to the straightforward layout of the user buttons for maximum functionality.

The Scan Operator FX II features 6 overlay scenes, each with its own hotkey. Each overlay scene can be programmed to override either all or some of the DMX output channels and is ideal for use as a special effect. Whether you want blinders to take over, strobes to kick in, a solo beam to appear or any other kind of effect, the overlay scenes allow you to do it at the press of a single button.

Other convenient functions include an Auto-start mode which makes the controller boot up into a specified playback sequence immediately upon start up, and is ideal for permanent installations or fixed environments. In addition, there is a desk lock function to prevent unauthorized access to your programming.

Along with live operation, the Scan Operator FX II can also be fully triggered by an audio input or by a MIDI signal, so can support musicians or DJ’s directly and give them great presentation possibilities without losing any edge of control.
