The X15 is Vari-Lite’s flagship, high-performance lighting console designed for large facilities that host multiple types of events, such as houses of worship; studios; concert halls and multipurpose venues; stadiums and arenas; performing arts centers; and more. Leveraging over 150 years of combined experience in entertainment lighting control and running the mature Neo platform, the X15 console offers a feature-rich, customizable platform that is perfect for both theatrical and live event lighting.

Neo software helps designers find the perfect look in less time by including an advanced effects engine that supports pixel mapping, media playback, timelines, and more. When using the X15 along with audio and video systems, the onboard audio I/O connectivity along with SMTPE timecode and MIDI control make it easy to integrate your lighting cues with sound effects, videos, and more.

The powerful X15 lighting console is designed for flexibility, offering 15 multifunctional motorized playbacks and backlit encoders, and can output over 50,000 channels out of the box. The intuitive hardware layout includes two built-in monitors and a soft touch control screen. Both the X5 and X15 offer a sleek, streamlined experience, with a powerful processor and premium components, including backlit Cherry keys, Bourne faders, and Neutrik connectors. The all-in-one hardware is rugged and hardwearing, and can travel anywhere you need it, whether that’s around the theatre or around the world.

The X15 is backed by a robust training and support system, with onboard training videos, global tech support, online forums and groups, and an interactive manual.
