The Cognito2™ solves the complex task of programming shows that include incandescent dimmers, moving lights, and color-changing LED fixtures.

Cognito2 features a streamlined, natural language interface to guide you through selecting lights from a vast fixture library, adjusting their attributes, and recording reference libraries, memories and cues.

Once programmed, the show is played back manually or by using show control, time code, or scripting inputs.

Easy to use by novices but powerful enough to create complex looks and shows, the Cognito2 is ideal for school theatres, cafetoriums, places of worship, or anywhere a powerful but easy-to-use lighting console is needed.
