M-PC gives you the same power and functionality as the software running on all the M-Series consoles. It can be installed on any PC running Windows 7 or higher (laptop not included). It is the same software you will find on the M2PC console surface and can also be used in conjunction with the M-Series Modules or as a tracking backup for M-Series consoles.

M-PC can be used for offline programming or can be linked to any ArtNet or sACN interface device for direct control of fixtures. It provides a high-value programming platform for a large variety of shows from a rock tour to a simple permanent installation.
