London, UK – Miami FL, USA – April 25, 2022 –– Pharos Architectural Controls Limited, the award-winning UK manufacturer of dynamic lighting control solutions, and Smart Monkeys, Inc., the global specialist in entertainment show and media control, today announced the integration of Pharos lighting controllers, within the ISAAC Ecosystem, Smart Monkeys’ modular AV management platform.
Pharos is a scalable system of embedded lighting control hardware, custom designed for performance and reliability. The free Pharos Designer 2 software is an intuitive yet advanced interface for programming your chosen Pharos controller, which can then be left to run with no external computer necessary.
“In our favored markets, such as Themed Entertainment, Museums, and Experience Center, Pharos controllers are a ubiquitous component of the audio visual system design,” said Stephan Villet, Managing Partner at Smart Monkeys, Inc. “Offering this powerful and seamless integration to our mutual users makes perfect sense.”
ISAAC is a centralized management platform for Entertainment and Media systems. It provides end users with a cohesive, simple way to take advantage of their connected environments. Pharos lighting controllers can now be easily programmed to interface with ISAAC, for monitoring and scheduling purpose.
“We’re delighted with this new Smart Monkeys collaboration” said Bas Hoksbergen, Strategic Growth Manager at Pharos Architectural Controls. “Integrating our Pharos dynamic lighting controllers within the ISAAC ecosystem will be a game changer for the people we both care most about, our customers. By coming together we have given these users a compelling solution that is easy to use, yet flexible enough to meet the needs of even the most demanding projects.”
