Welcome to This site is part of the Open Lighting Project and aims to be a resource for those involved in the lighting industry looking for DMX software and associated control systems. It's also home to documentation for various open source and free lighting software.

If you're new to the world of lighting check out the Definitions page, or have a look at the list of USB interfaces or Software Controllers.

Do you know of non-conforming or fussy DMX equipment? If so, please add it to the NonConformDMX page. Are you interesting in seeing what equipment and solutions are available? See the list of upcoming Conferences & Exhibitions.

The Open Lighting Projects List contains a list of installations from around the world where software from the Open Lighting Project has been used. If you know of something cool or are planning a new installation please add it to the list.
