Restaurant Lighting


For the ultimate in control of the accent and table lighting in a restaurant, a CueTouch panel is used to give the owner direct control over the precise color of each table and accent area in the establishment as well as access to a few presets and a special light show.

Architectural


For high-end applications, instead of using simple mechanical button stations, CueTouch is used to provide graphical control of the lighting in a commercial setting. Using custom scripting, each graphical element on the screen can mimic what lights are on in the actual environment in real-time.

Studio Control


A television studio uses CueTouch as a studio lighting control panel. This screen allows each set in the studio to be turned on individually or the light intensity to be adjusted manually. Multiple CueTouch panels are located in key areas as well as in the master control room.

Themed Entertainment


A museum exhibit uses CueTouch as an operator interface. Large on-screen buttons are provided as intuitive controls for an automated movie theater. Additional screen pages can be added to the panel to control other special features of the room.
