High End Systems has released the latest version of software for the Flying Pig Systems WholeHog III lighting console. Software version 1.3.6 adds initial direct interaction for remote focus with Cast Lighting’s WYSIWYG Perform R8 visualization software via Ethernet. In addition, this release improves the functionality of many existing features and enhances the overall performance and reliability of the system. Software version 1.3.6 is now available for download at www.flyingpig.com.
This is the second software release by the recently re-organized Hog development team, with the previous release of v1.3.5 just two months prior. Since the departure of several developers in January, High End Systems has been quick to build a new development team. While several of the original developers still occupy the London office, most of the new team is based in the company’s Austin, Texas headquarters.
Robbie Bruce, director of software development, says, “We have assembled a fantastic group of enthusiastic programmers in conjunction with the Flying Pig Systems developers. These guys are dedicated to the future of the WholeHog III line of products and have demonstrated a remarkable ability to assess the existing code and implement changes as needed.”
