Take your show on the road. Literally. With Flying Pig Systems Hog PCwhich transfers many of the Wholehog II lighting console's functions to a personal computeryour light show can travel with you.
Hog PC offers powerful programming and playback tools in a portable system. Program your show on a Wholehog II console and play it back with Hog PC. Create cues or run a show from any remote location even halfway around the world be it on a home computer or a laptop. It's ideal as a backup solution.
Hog PC is freely available as an offline editor for the Wholehog II, Hog 500 and Hog 1000. With the addition of one or more of Flying Pig Systems' USB DMX Widgets, you can output up to four universes of DMX, while USB programming and playback wings are available to provide the familiar Wholehog control surfaces.
Besides portability, Hog PC offers another advantage: an astronomical/real time clock, previously available only on the Hog Unit rack mount version. The astronomical clock allows Hog PC to operate as a permanent playback unit, helpful in architectural, retail and other applications where automation is necessary.
Hog PC can also interface directly with WYSIWYG, Martin Show Designer and Lewlight Capture on the same computer - no DMX output or input hardware is required!
