Cognito2 offers easy and intuitive programming that makes control over incandescent dimmers, moving lights, and color-changing LEDs a breeze.

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, 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.

With up to two universes of control and new display output for a high definition external monitor, Cognito2 is quickly becoming the go-to console for small to medium size churches, schools, and other halls of public assembly.
