Powerful architectural lighting controller

Visual Productions introduces the most powerful CueCore ever made. The CueCore3 raises the bar for an already very successful range of architectural lighting controllers. A lot of lighting power in a small package.

As always, the CueCore3 is designed for non-stop operation, having no moving parts. The unit is completely solid-state and achieves the reliability that allow lighting engineers to ‘fit and forget’.

More channels

Featuring four DMX ports, each bi-directional and optically isolated. The four DMX universes are also available via Art-Net, sACN and KiNet.

More capacity

The CueCore3’s extended CPU and memory capabilities allow for more capacity in all of the CueCore’s features. The number of playback has been increased to 16. DMX recording memory is now 6GB, approx. 200 times larger than in the CueCore2. The maximum number of sources, actions and task have also been significantly increased.

Full RDM functionality

The CueCore3 is a complete RDM controller. It features discovery, changing addresses and reading status information.

Record DMX or program via the web-interface

Lighting shows designed on third-party consoles can easily be recorded inside the CueCore3. It even offers features to help create seamless loops in your recording. Recording external shows can be through DMX, Art-Net or sACN. Alternatively, you can program your own scenes through the CueCore3 fast web-interface.

System Integration

The CueCore3 offers the same impressive collection of protocols that makes the CueCore range so powerful. From typical lighting protocols such as DMX-512, Art-Net, sACN and KiNet. To protocols that allow you to interact with any kind of non-lighting equipment such as GPI, MIDI, UDP, TCP & OSC. It even supports timecode protocols like SMPTE and MTC.

Show-control and automation

The autonomous behaviour of the CueCore3 can be customised by flexible show-control programming. This functionality enables you to automate the show playback. You can define triggers based on any incoming protocol. And you convert signals from one protocols into another. A date/time/weekday scheduler is at your disposal.

Scale up

The scalable design of the CueCore3 allows for deployment in small and large projects. The autonomous operation of a single CueCore3 is often sufficient for a small installation. Whereas a grid of multiple CueCores, all networked together, meets the capacity required by large lighting systems. The CueCore3 is fitted with a fluent master-slave protocol for synchronising multiple units.

Compatible with the family

The CueCore3 is the signature member of a product family that includes the DaliCore, for DALI control. The IoCore, for additional GPI, GPO and RS-232 ports. The B-Station, a wall-mount button panel. Kiosc Touch, a wall-mount touch screen featuring a customisable dashboard. And DIN rail DMX tools like the RdmSplitter and DmxMerger.



Supported by software tools

We have bundled the CueCore3 with various software tools. CueluxPro is software-based lighting console that enables you to create lighting content that can be uploaded to the CueCore’s internal memory. vManager, allows you to discover CueCores on the network, backup their internal data and upgrade firmware. There is also Kiosc, a simple program for creating custom touch-screen user-interfaces.
