The new Avolites Tiger Touch represents The Definitive Hybrid console. A hybrid of powerful Diamond 4 functionality coupled with the friendly Pearl interface – unquestionably the industries favourite!

A hybrid of fast, accessible, ‘hands on’ control working in conjunction with the intuitive touch screen.

This responsive, wide screen, touch interface provides a constantly evolving software skin which envelopes the high performance hardware platform.

Avolites Tiger Touch, the seamless link between functionality and form.






























Main programming window

Offering access to fixture Groups with Position, Colour, and Beam Palettes. For increased flexibility, Macros for commonly needed functions or button sequences maybe placed onto unused Group or Palette buttons. Scroll or page the window to access up to 1,000 entries per window.









Attribute Control - Colour Mix

This "Colour Selection" Attribute Controller gives instant access to Hue, Saturation, and Luminosity. Quite simply, the fastest way to choose colours on moving lights, RGB LED's and video.






Attribute Control - Zoom, Focus, Iris and Frost

 The ‘Attribute View Window’ control gives a fast and intuitive alternative to editing with the encoder wheels or key pad.  Select the attribute to be controlled and all associated attributes and their functions will be presented on screen. Simply touch the desired function or use the virtual slider to control linear functions.  






Shape and Effect Window 

The powerful Shape Engine 'Primitives' are offered here. Simply and quickly build beautifully complex effects in seconds. Shapes may control intelligent fixtures, colour mixing LED Luminares and Video Media Servers. Once  a 'Primitive' has been applied the user has control over the Speed, Size, and Repeat  Phasing of the effect. Once programmed, the shape's Size, Speed and Morphing may be controlled with the fader or using Fade In/Out times.





Attribute Control Window - Video Media Server Control

Both Tiger Touch and Expert Touch consoles incorporate CITP - Media Server Control protocol. CITP not only offers instant and automatic patching of media server layers, but also enables operators to choose the required video clip directly from the on screen thumbnail. The fast and friendly method to work with video.





Attribute Control Window - Video Media Server Control 2

 Video Media Server Playback and Transition functions are grouped logically and may be directly controlled from the console.







Always ready for use as visualiser is patched automatically as you assign fixtures to the console. The visualiser system is far more informative than merely numbers on the screen and can be used to set and review movement, colour fade and Iris times. Visualiser is optimised for fast, smooth accurate response without compromising console speed. Visualiser may be used as powerful pre production programming tool or as a useful training tool.





Cue List View and Channel Grid View

Tapping once on the Playback area for any cue list opens the ‘Cue List View’. Tapping a second time on the display opens the ‘Channel Grid View’ for the currently ‘Live’ cue. Both views are programmer interactive where fade times, attribute times, playback properties and channel levels may be quickly and easily edited and updated. Spreadsheet functions such as copy, paste and ‘select range to edit’ provide a powerful editing tool for cues, pallets and chase steps.





What is a workspace view? 

The consoles and touch screen interface is used in conjunction with 'Operator Workspace Views'. These workspace views are set-up and stored by the operator and can be switched instantly as needed. Workspace views are populated with up to 4 workspace windows and window choices include; Groups, Colours, position and beam palettes, as well as shapes, macros, cue list and channel views, head up display of playbacks and palettes and the stage visualiser. Many user defined workspace views may be saved and recalled from the workspace pallet.






The IPCGBES Display

Below the workspace views is the useful ‘Programmer and Editor Display’. Two functions are shown here:

• The grey square indicates or selects what attribute type the encoder wheels are currently assigned to, i.e. P for Pan/Tilt Position, C for colour or G for Gobo.

• The Cyan circle provides a quick and clear indication of channels you have placed into the programmer, ready to be recorded.




The Wheel View 

Below the IPCGBES display is the encoder wheel view. This shows the functions contained within each attribute controller. The display conveniently shows the current function as well as the next two available in either direction. Tapping the up or down arrows instantly takes the channel to 100% or 0% and pressing view then the wheel view display area opens the Attribute Editor for custom channel control.






Submaster Playback Displays

The Tiger Touch and Expert Touch Wing provide comprehensive, detailed Playback information. The display for each Playback displays the Cue Legend, Fade In and Out Times and 0% Fade progress. Where the Playback contains a chase, the beat is shown on a progress bar and for cue lists the legend of the Live and Next cues are shown.







Virtual Playbacks    

Set the buttons to "Supersize" and use the Touch Wing Playbacks during the show for further memories or sequences. Buttons may be Latched On or Off and are ideal for Smoke machine, Strobe or Effect control.







TITAN Operating System is the future of Avolites Software.
