Highly intuitive with expandable characteristics unparalleled in the lighting control market, Maxxyz offers an abundance of cutting edge features in a modular design. Maxxyz incorporates fast processing power, direct fixture access, a powerful effects generator, USB, motorized faders, quality touch screens, along with SMPTE/VITC/LANC/MIDI timecoding.

A key element of Maxxyz is its built-in 3D Visualizer, fully integrated into the console software. The Visualizer allows you to view your light shows in highly realistic 3D. Maxxyz has been developed with multimedia in mind. The console has a DVD/CD-RW multi-drive so you can synchronize your light shows with audio and video. The combination drive also lets you save your shows to CD-ROM, or you can use it to watch your favorite DVDs during those idle moments. Maxxyz includes a further 39 GB of space available for backup purposes.

Along with the 8 DMX universes available directly from the console, Maxxyz is also fully Ethernet enabled. By connecting to a series of EtherDMX boxes, Maxxyz' capacity expands to 64 DMX universes or up to 32,768 channels. The fast Ethernet network lets you connect to the console from a remote location via PC or laptop. You can also connect to the Internet for software updates, service and support, or to make remote programming modifications from anywhere in the world.

Multiple pages of assignable and multi-functional motorized playback faders give easy playback access of cue, cue-list, effects speed, amplitude, etc.

Inside the console are two 1.2 GHz, Pentium III processors, two complete computer systems that run in tandem and operate as one large, integrated system. If one CPU fails, the other will act as backup to preserve the core functions of the console during a show.
