• Light-O-Rama Acquires SuperStar Sequence Editor

    In our ongoing effort to provide the best; Light-O-Rama is pleased to announce the acquisition of the SuperStar Sequence Editor software. The innovative, SuperStar Sequence Editor is the premier tool for development of sophisticated shows using Light-O-Ramaís Cosmic Color Ribbon. The SuperStar software is being integrated as a new wizard in the Light-O-Rama Sequence Editor.

    In addition, Light-O-Rama has partnered with the talented author of the SuperStar Sequence Editor, Brian Bruderer. Brian will continue to support and enhance SuperStar as part of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite. Although I am thrilled to have the SuperStar software I am even more excited by Brianís continued involvement with the product. Brian has some great and exciting plans to extend SuperStar functionality to make sequencing easier for all users, not only those using Cosmic Color Devices.

    To protect the investment made by existing SuperStar customers, their continued support was written into the Software Purchase Agreement. Brian insisted and I agreed whole heartedly that existing SuperStar customers will not lose any functionality nor incur any additional cost because of this agreement.

    Of course only time will tell, but I believe that incorporation of SuperStar, a new visualizer, new communications options, optimizations for larger sequences, sequence shortcuts that help with large and small displays and a number of other items is making this yearís release of S3 an exciting one.

    Additional information will be shared once it is available.

    Thank You,
    Dan Baldwin
    President/CEO Light O Rama, Inc.

      I agree. As you speculated, this will be the basis of S3. I would also bet the S3 will cost additional upgrade fees over S1 or S2 .. S2 will still have a good market for those who don't want to go into the RGB world .. I could see both being sold with S2 costing much less ..

      According to LOR's published policy, anyone that purchased S2 within the last 12 months, should get S3 for FREE.

      A few months ago Dan "speculated" that existing S2 users would be able to upgrade to the next major software release for approx $20 (exact final amount to be determined - but should be nominal)

      When S2 was released, LOR no longer sold S1, nor issued updates for it. I would expect S2 would also become obsolete and discontinued upon the release of S3 and software support for S2 would also cease.

      I look forward to the release of S3, same as when S2 became available and I was able to replace S1

      Hey William,

      When do you think they'll release the S3 Beta software for us to start testing?

      (Hope they don't skip that step, or dump all of us existing S2 Beta Testers)
