"As a company that strives to deliver only the best products and service to our clients, Luminex offers an incredible range of data distribution equipment for the professional lighting market.

Lighting provides world class services to the lighting and video markets and it is a pleasure to partner with them.  Luminex strives to provide top of the line support to its customer base and teaming up with A.C. Lighting is a natural next step to extend that level of service."

The two companies will commemorate their newly forged partnership with an invitation-only product showcase of the GigaCore and LumiSplit product ranges at InfoComm 2017.  Those interested in receiving an exclusive, in-person demonstration of both of these phenomenal technologies can visit A.C. Lighting (booth #7571) at the InfoComm tradeshow. 

LumiSplit, the ultimate family of splitters, takes Remote Device Management (RDM) to the next level (#newRDMexperience).  LumiSplit allows users to organize their lighting devices like never before by easily merging and backing up their DMX sources directly from the splitter.  The new boosters are discoverable and configurable from any RDM controller.  They are designed with robust housing with galvanic and optical isolation per outlet.
