e:cue is an industry leading hardware and software lighting control and automation manufacturer. They create systems for all levels of lighting from small resident applications to large casinos with complex lighting effects spread over tens of thousands of square feet.
The system is based on networked DMX (digital multiplex) lighting control, emphasizing advanced triggering capabilities (RS232, UDP, HTTP, dry contact, timed, astronomical clock, MIDI, SMPTE, and more) and multimedia control. Despite the head spinning array of options, the systems can be programmed and packaged into simple interfaces for end clients so that a layman can approach a system for the first time and be able to use it with no instruction.
To program such a system, however, takes a certain amount of knowledge. This website is intended to supplement the official documentation and training materials provided by e:cue with the tips and tricks learned from real world experience with the system. It is run by Ruby Rubenstahl, a former employee of e:cue who is still works actively with e:cue and Traxon Technologies to create the world-class installations that they are known for.
