Common Terms
The following are common terms used in intelligent light
programming.

Blackout is a state where all lighting fixtures’ light output are set to 0 or off, usually on a
temporary basis.

DMX-512 is an industry standard digital communication protocol used in entertainment lighting
equipment. For more information read Sections “DMX Primer” and “DMX Control Mode” in the
Appendix.

Fixture refers to your lighting instrument or other device such as a fogger or dimmer which you
can control.

Programs are a bunch of scenes stacked one after another. It can be programmed as either a
single scene or multiple scenes in sequence.

Scenes are static lighting states.

Sliders are also known as faders.

Chases can also be called programs. A chase consists of a bunch of scenes stacked one after
another.

Scanner refers to a lighting instrument with a pan and tilt mirror; however DMX controllers can
use this term to control any DMX-512 compatible device as a generic fixture.

MIDI is a standard for representing musical information in a digital format. A MIDI input would
provide external triggering of scenes using midi device such as a midi keyboard.

Standalone refers to a fixture’s ability to function independently of an external controller and
usually in sync to music, due to a built in microphone.

Fade slider is used to adjust the time between scenes within a chase.

Speed slider affects the amount of time a scene will hold its state. It is also considered a wait
time.

Shutter is a mechanical device in the lighting fixture that allows you to block the lights path. It is
often used to lessen the intensity of the light output and to strobe.

Patching refers to the process of assigning faders to a DMX channel within a fixture.

Playbacks can be either scenes or chases that are directly called to execution by the user. A
playback can also be considered program memory that can be recalled during a show

channels apart (check the respective fixture’s manual for how to enter the information into the
fixture).
Note: failure to use these DMX assignments may cause a lack of control of the fixtures.
