Description

Remotely controlling lighting fixtures is essential to efficient work in technical theater yet many current remote devices are large, cumbersome objects with difficult to use displays that can only interact with one light at a time. To combat this problem I've built a web application optimized for mobile devices that allows quick, intuitive control over the lighting fixtures. Unlike other remote devices available, the application allows for control of multiple dimmers at once, remembering previously entered information. The application is designed as a focus and dimmer check tool and uses presets to anticipate the needs of the user.
