Premium Vari-Lite Neo X5 Console Now Shipping

Vari-Lite has announced that its premium Neo X5 console is now shipping, making the entire line of consoles from Vari-Lite available for purchase. The Vari-Lite Neo X Series is a family of high-performance lighting consoles designed for mixed-use applications such as performing arts centers; stadiums and arenas; houses of worship; studios; schools; touring rental; and more. The Neo X Series includes the 15-fader Neo X15 and the newly shipping Neo X5.

The Neo X5 is a high-performance lighting console running the powerful Neo platform, offering 5 multifunctional motorized playbacks, backlit encoders, and a built-in monitor as well as a soft touch control screen. The console includes an advanced effects engine that supports pixel mapping, media playback, timelines, and more and can output over 50,000 channels out of the box.

The 7’’ touch screen is said to speed up programming by putting the right keys at your fingertips when you need them. Alongside its powerful software, Neo’s updated user interface makes that power easier to use. From there, Parlights, Inc President and COO noted “lots of little things that make a difference – support for Capture presentation files, rotary encoders to change the colour of a submaster, backlit keys, a smooth keyboard drawer, etc. This desk shows well and is fun to drive.”
