ZerOS is the operating system for all premium lighting consoles from Zero 88

Included with ZerOS is the latest Zero 88 fixture library. This comprehensive library includes details about colours on fixed wheels, gobo images and position information enabling ZerOS consoles to present a unified set of controls, regardless of the fixture being controlled.

Phantom ZerOS is an offline editor for the ZerOS consoles and provides full desk functionality from a standard Windows PC. Show files can be loaded from USB, manipulated using the standard desk controls and then re-saved as required. With the purchase of an unlock dongle, Phantom ZerOS can also be unlocked as a tracking backup solution to the main desk.
