Among the system’s integrative features is Light Map, an update that allows users the option of streaming Ai video colour data through any fixture group, including both RGB and CMY fixtures, to instantly integrate them into a larger video canvas - meaning that everything from high-res LED screens to LED fixture groups can be controlled from one UI.

This unlocks 4k playback through a single DisplayPort 1.2 connection, with 2 x DVI outputs for HD displays. The server supports EDID for all three outputs, configurable via a dedicated front-end UI. The server allows for visually lossless playback with Avolites’ unique AiM codec. As with Avolites’ larger severs, the Q3 has native Notch support as well as a powerful inbuilt effects engine.

The Ai v10.2 update, key features of which include NDI output, allowing video to be outputted over CAT5.
