Vari-Lite shows off latest console solutions at LDI 2023

Vari-Lite announced that they will be presenting several new console products at LDI in Las Vegas. These new solutions include the recently launched Vari-Lite Neo X5 Console, a preview of the next-gen Neo X Server, and new updates to the Neo and ZerOS console software platforms.

The Neo X5 Console is a compact, high-performance 5-fader lighting console running the powerful Neo platform. “We are excited that the X5 console will make its public trade show debut at LDI this year,” said Jon Hole, Global Product Manager, Vari-Lite Systems and Controls at Signify.

In addition to the Neo X5 and X15, Vari-Lite will also be previewing the new Neo X Server at LDI 2023. Expected to launch in 2024, the Neo X Server includes the same power, features, and capabilities as the popular Neo X Series consoles in a standalone 2U rackmount device.

Also debuting at LDI are new software updates for Vari-Lite’s Neo and ZerOS console platforms. The new Neo 4.1.1 update will be shown on the premium Neo X Series consoles, while the 7.14.1 update for ZerOS will be shown on Vari-Lite’s easy-to-use FLX Series consoles. Both releases are expected in the first half of December 2023.

In addition to the capture visualization, PDF viewer with cue markup, effect masters, and other enhancements previously announced in Neo 4.1, the new 4.1.1 update includes over a hundred enhancements to the user experience.

The new ZerOS 7.14.1 update offers over 50 enhancements to the user experience, including updates to playbacks, improvements to ZerOS’s fully automated move-on-dark capabilities between nonsequential cues, and more.

Catch Vari-Lite and their new solutions at LDI’s booth #577, from 3–5 December 2023.
