You don’t have to work yourself through heavy manuals, simply get started by using one of our pre-programmed shows. Currently, you have more than 170 shows at your disposal and we are constantly striving to create new ones.
The TimeLine makes the generating of a multimedia show as uncomplicated as the editing of videos in any of these Windows-compatible video cutting programmes. As the programming is done in real-time, you can even edit and store the entirety of functions while running the show.
All functions and elements of your laser show are being programmed and synchronised via the TimeLine – whether you work with MP3, WAV, WinAmp files or an SMPTE-TimeCodeSignal. Additionally, you can synchronise your video films with the laser, DMX and Midi effects. The WAV visualisation makes for an easier visual synchronisation; the Time-Beat-Marker positions your events down to the beat. The new PHOENIX4 Pro/ProPlus Recording function allows the user to create an entirely new and perfectly synchronic show. Pre-programmed effects can be saved at the PC or Midi keyboard to make them readily available for introducing them to the beat of the music. PHOENIX4 Pro/ProPlus will then automatically and up to the point copy the effects and paste them right into the TimeLine and it even provides the users with the option to edit anything they want at a later point in time. PHOENIX4 Pro/ProPlus recording function applies to all laser, DMX and video events.

PHOENIX4 PRO / PROplus are multi screen capable. You may monitor all laser, video and illumination events on one single display; and because this relieves you from constantly switching between several monitors, you won’t get into the malaise to lose control of your show. Admittedly, working with 2 to 3 displays is surely much more convenient and also a bit flashier…

To make out of your laser show the ultimate highlight, you can rely on an archive containing more than 190 special effects and even combine them as you like.
All the professional functions laser software is able to offer today, you can not merely create your multimedia show; you rather have a chance to enchant your esteemed audience with an unforgettable experience.

The DMX functions further improve the flexibility of PHOENIX4 PRO / PROplus. We already have accomplished the programming of more than 2,000 DMX fixtures and their storage with pictures. The fixture editor is good for expanding the library by adding your own fixtures, scenes and sequences. Simply use drag and drop to position everything on the TimeLine or even import entire scenes into other shows.

Because only a frame-precise synchronising with video files makes your laser show the ultimate multimedia experience. You can choose to direct its output into HDTV.
