Check out the tabs below, which discuss BEYOND in more detail, and you can also see a detailed chart comparing the different features that come with the Essentials, Advanced and Ultimate versions of the software.
As the laser and entertainment industries are constantly evolving, you as a professional laserist need a control platform that sets you up for success. BEYOND answers that need! The BEYOND software features a variety of new technologies that are not available in any other laser control software. These include a true multimedia timeline for control of laser and video, as well as a 3D animation and drawing program. BEYOND also offers support for today's most popular lighting protocols including DMX, ArtNet and OSC so that you can easily control your laser show and effects from a lighting console. The program also features expanded versions of our popular QuickTools and QuickFX, so you have more effect options to work with when designing your shows. And BEYOND takes 'live' laser control to a whole new level, with professional MIDI and DMX mapping options, that allow you to create custom profiles for your favorite consoles.
An overview of some of the main areas of BEYOND is below:

BEYOND Universe: The BEYOND Universe is an exciting tool, that allows you to create custom workspaces within the software that can be customized the way you want them.
