After 20 years, Elation calls it “the end of an era.”
Elation Professional announces retirement of lighting control software LightJockey. On the market for over two decades, LightJockey has been one of the longest available lighting control software solutions on the market. With tens of thousands of systems sold, the company announces LightJockey will no longer be available.
Elation’s news release explains, “As ongoing security changes to Windows prevent LightJockey from functioning reliably, the decision was made to phase out the lighting control software with the release of Windows 11 in October. The last LightJockey kit has been sold and this iconic software - the starting point for many professionals in the business - will no longer evolve. The transition to a new and modern software solution, however, is simple. LightJockey USB DMX hardware is recognized by Onyx, the innovative and easy-to-operate lighting control platform by Obsidian Control Systems.”
Plug-and-play drivers unlock any of the devices to the Onyx Nova license, which offers four universes of DMX, Art-Net or sACN support. Users can download Onyx, connect the LightJockey DMX adapter and continue with creative opportunities.
Obsidian offers online training videos to help professionals learn and convert their systems from LightJockey to Onyx that can be found at https://obsidiancontrol.com/training_videos.
