We believe there are many good applications on the market today that meet a wide variety of needs and that this wide variety of products can meet nearly all the specific needs of our customers. All HolidayCoro controller hardware is compatible with all sequencing applications on the market and a huge number of other "lighting deck" applications on the market that also use standards based protocols.

Please note that HolidayCoro does NOT support these applications - they are supported by the vendor or group that has released them. HolidayCoro will though assist you at no charge ensure that your hardware is fully operational.
