STARCARD by Dove
Systems is a DOS-based, mouse-operated, software/hardware
solution for adding computer memory lighting control to existing
stage lighting systems.
STARCARD requires only an XT or AT class PC computer with DOS

expansion slot, 3.5” floppy disk drive, and VGA monitor.
STARCARD has 96 channels, can control up to 480 dimmers, has two
timed crossfader pairs, 252 available cues, and outputs either
AMX or standard DMX. Up to four complete shows can be stored on
one floppy disk.
Other features are proportional softpatch, looped cues, insert
cues, blind cue setting, cue, submaster, and dimmer labels, and
split fade/delay times.
STARCARD will accept AMX, DMX, or up to sixty 0-10 vdc analog
The VGA color display can show live or blind channel
levels/cues, cuesheet, submaster assignments, and softpatch.
Alphanumeric labelling is available through the computer
An optional submaster console contains two pairs of manual
crossfaders, master fader, and 18 submaster sliders.
