32-universe, all-in-one DMX recorder + smart light show controller.

ENTTEC’s S-PLAY SP1-1 is a revolutionary smart show recorder and playback controller for hassle-free, professional light shows and automated projects.

Engineered for projects that require precise automation, the S-PLAY SP1-1 smart light show controller is your complete solution for the creation, recording, scheduling, triggering, and activation of not only light shows but video, machinery, and much more. Playback multiple shows simultaneously and install it almost anywhere with flexible mounting options.

In simple terms, think of it as being like a scene & animated effect creation engine, a 32-universe DMX recorder & playback engine and host for control interfaces that can send multiple AV specific protocols all rolled into one.

You can even create your own custom web interfaces in order to provide your end users with as much or as little control as they need.

With a built-in effects generator and intuitive, onboard controls to record, edit, schedule and play scenes, you don’t have to be an experienced lighting designer or systems integrator to conjure up amazing shows using our smart light show controller, but your audience will think you are.

Let’s get started!

Ever wanted to know the perfect recipe to make a stunning yet simple interactive and automated LED lighting setup?

Join our head chef, Nic, as he takes you through a basic configuration using the S-PLAY and an external button to flick between cues. 

We’ll also take a look at the S-PLAY’s intuitive web interface and learn the essentials of the unit’s capabilities. 

Follow this easy lesson and you’ll be up and running in no time!

NOTE: The S-PLAY hardware and its web interface have seen continual improvements and visual modifications since this video was produced, although its core functionality remains the same. The Pixie Driver is a legacy product, but there are many current ENTTEC LED controllers you could use in its place, e.g., the OCTO. Enjoy!

S-PLAY: the heart of your installation.

It’s not only the S-PLAY’s software that makes integration a breeze – its flexible hardware and I/O options mean that connection to other devices on any surface is really simple.

By pairing it with other ENTTEC products you can create powerful infrastructure and control systems easily. Take this system for controlling large quantities of LED strip put together by New Aspect Design to dim multiple LED zones from triggers or to a schedule.

As well as the CVC4 LED dimmer, you can also combine an S-PLAY show controller with other ENTTEC devices such as the STORM10 Ethernet to DMX gateway to give you more physical DMX outputs on your network, or the PIXELATOR MINI LED pixel controller make control of LED pixel installations simple.

In any automation setup, S-PLAY integration possibilities are virtually endless and limited only by your imagination.
