Spectrum OS 2.1 Updater for LiteDimmer Spectrum DC-200 Ballast

Firmware Version: v2.1 for DC-200 Ballast
Release Date: September 24, 2020


LiteDimmer Spectrum Firmware v2.1 Release Notes

Spectrum OS2 is a major update to LiteMat Spectrum controllers. The update includes a few first-to-market features that simplify the operation and powering of up to 12 large format pixels. Another new feature provides beautiful gradients in the simplest way possible. Radically expanded DMX decoding with full RDM implementation is sure to streamline workflows. There are even a couple features that enable cinema-style local controls such as cueing and tactile adjustment. Since OS2 has been built from the ground up, stability and reliability are improved and rock-solid.

A USB-A to 5-pin XLR LiteGear Updater Cable is required.
