Introducing Key Features #6 - How the modules in Ray Console work
The software on a Ray Console can be extended by purchasing modules here on this website. Ray Console is a new lighting control console. It is simple to use, engineered to last and has an extendable modular software.
Ray Console comes with all the software features you need to get started. However there are many features that you may need as your experience and system grow. These features could be ArtNet, RDM, a second universe of DMX, a second sequence, etc... These features are packed into convenient modules that can be purchased or subscribed to on rayconsole.com. Once purchased, modules can be enabled the next time the console is connected to the internet.
Modules can be chosen on rayconsole.com by selecting Modules at the top of any webpage. Details are given for each module with images and a clear list of the software features included. It is possible to browse rayconsole.com directly from the console, just go to Settings and select Get Modules. By adding the modules that you require, you can tailor the console to your needs, while not paying for features you don’t need.
Modules can be purchased from the rayconsole.com via a computer, tablet or phone. We accept all major credit cards and paypal. Modules are locked to the console hardware, so your console will increase in value as you add modules. There are two license options, modules can either be purchased or subscribed to on a monthly basis. If you are not sure if you need a module, we recommend the monthly subscription.
Once a module has been purchased or subscribed to, the module will be installed during the next software update. Simply connect the console to the internet via ethernet or Wifi and start a software update from the Update dialogue in Settings. Once the module is installed it can be used straight away and will continue working without an internet connection. Every module comes with its own context help, as well as a chapter in the manual.
You can see which modules are installed by going to My Modules in Settings on the console. To turn off a module, simply tap the undesired module. Subscribed modules can be canceled via rayconsole.com. Your show information will not be removed when you cancel a module. However some features may no longer be editable and you may need to reconfigure the location of memories, the patch and some network settings.
