MACNA 2013 - Neptune Systems

I was really hoping to make the trip out to Florida over the last fortnight and attend the MACNA conference as well as bundle in a bit of a holiday, but a few changes in daily life eventually prevented me from attending what looked to be a spectacular conference, which has bummed me out a little bit.

However, I've been following the buzz and other blogs across the internet and trying to keep up with whats been happening.

My favourite reveal of everything outright has got to be the news from Neptune Systems that the Apex will now support the Radion lighting fixture and they have an all new cloud based programming and monitoring system called Apex Fusion.

One of the main selling poinst of Fusion appears to be the fact that the mine field of network and internet access setup will pretty much be phased out.

I read and try to help on many forum threads and through email and eventual phone calls of people having difficulty with these issues. Sadly the controller itself sometimes gets blamed for not being able to do what the owner intends, when this is not the case.

Due to the infinite number of ISP and router setups, and not everyone being computer or network savvy, it is not an easy task to supply a one stop solution for everybody. Hopefully Fusion will be that one stop solution though. If it works as intended, it will be outright brilliant with no comparable system on the market.

As the Apex and Radion are my preferred control equipment and lighting setups, this has been music to my ears!

There will also be an Apex specific and controlled auto feeder. Something that many people have been asking for, for a very long time! Great stuff and kudos to the Neptune Systems guys for providing solutions to what people actually want.

Heres a quick video review from BRS showing Fusion.
