Our team is looking forward to meeting you there and perform live demonstrations of 25G Hybrid, 4K/UHD fiber and HDBaseT solutions and complex applications for huddle room environments.

Operation Center Opened in China

Lightware is committed to delivering state-of-the-art audiovisual technology and providing the best support to its customers. In order to strengthen the sales and service platform in mainland China, we opened a new office in Guangzhou: the Lightware China Operations Center. The new office and its team were introduced to the market at the InfoComm China event in Beijing. Lightware will soon open offices in Beijing and Shanghai as well, directly facing the market and expanding to meet the needs of our local customers.
Lightware has been present on the Chinese market since the installation of the world-class video switching system for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games opening ceremony, then continued to deliver superior solutions for the Shanghai World Fair, the Han Show in Wuhan, and most recently provided a comprehensive fiber-based switching platform for the Shanghai Disney© Resort.
On behalf of the global Lightware team we would hereby like to greet our new teammates in the Lightware family:

Welcome Aboard!

New All-In-One Distribution Amplifiers

DA2HDMI-4K-Plus-A is a distribution amplifier with two HDMI outputs and with amazing features and services, which will become available towards the end of this summer. Our engineers managed to squeeze in every Lightware technology that can possibly fit into this tiny box. It has 4K/UHD capabilities, HDCP enable/disable support, Advanced EDID Management, Pixel Accurate Reclocking, local audio de/embedding, gold plated HDMI connectors, Phoenix audio-out, 3.5 jack audio-in port and a local headphone jack port for monitoring. Still, if you feel you do not need the audio de/embedding features, there is another product version also available: DA2HDMI-4K-Plus basically delivers everything the flagship model does, but without the audio embedding capabilities and ports. Call your favourite sales team contact for prices and delivery.

New Lightware Device Controller Version Released

A new, 1.7.3 version has been released recently for the Lightware Device Controller (LDC). The upgraded software tool is loaded with new and improved features and a revamped design for the MX-FR built-in web (firmware upgrade is also required for the new features and design). New features include an upgraded Event Manager control tool as well.The matrices can be controlled via either the built-in web or via the application running on the PC or Mac, but from this edition on the looks of the two are almost identical. The MX-FR embedded web GUI was developed to carry a design identical to the executable software version, so the same design welcomes the users when entering the IP address of their matrix even in the internet browser of a smart iOS or Android device. The Event Manager tool received great upgrades, now allowing setting a delay between the detected conditions and the actions, multiple actions, infrared detection, sending Ethernet commands and the testing of predefined events. User friendly Event Manager wizard options have also been expanded for easy and quick configuration. Some further, subtle enhancements improve user experience: in advanced view certain predefined settings can be enabled and disabled by marking editing checkboxes, manual button feedbacks appear in popups, RS232 ports can handle ’Send Message’ textboxes and the software is prepared to handle incompatible FW versions.
