Whats planned for future releases

An iPad version is still being investigated…
• Submit fixtures for addition is nearly ready
• What do you want? Contact me either in app via the feedback section, or the contact me page on here.
• I am in talks to allow access for premium users to access a constantly updating database with over 7000 fixtures! Lighting Handbooks own database would still continue to be updated on a regular basis but this premium database is kept unto date from another company whos sole job is to update it, meaning you’d have the latest fixtures available as soon as they’re released – More info will follow soon.

What else is planned?

There is a slow roll out of gobo diameter and gobo image sizes happening, the Martin range has been completed and more manufacturers will follow.
