Overview

The CueServer 2 Pro (CS-900) is housed in a sturdy 1U rack-mount enclosure with removable brackets.

CueServer 2 Pro boasts an innovative modular DMX port system. Four bi-directional DMX ports (optional) on the back of the unit are user-configurable with any of seven available port modules. These interchangeable modules allow CueServer 2 Pro to be customized for different installation environments eliminating the need for external adaptors.

CueServer 2 Pro features dual LAN ports for splitting Ethernet-based lighting and management data onto separate networks if desired.

The front-panel of CueServer 2 Pro has eight customizable function buttons. Each button has fully controllable RGB backlighting and field-replaceable legends for project personalization. A navigation keypad is used to operate the onboard LCD menu for basic system settings, show selection, and macro execution.
