Luxor ZD/ZDC

Color Palette


Read Article

The Luxor ZDC system adds color to existing zoning and dimming options. A color system requires that a ZDC LED board is installed into each desired FX LED fixture. It also requires replacing the existing Luxor ZD facepack with a Luxor ZDC facepack. Standard and ZD enabled FX fixtures will zone and zone/dim (respectively) on a ZDC facepack, but color is achieved only through the use of specific ZDC LED boards. The ZDC screen layout is similar to that of the standard ZD, with a few additional features.

Color Palette

Colors are selected on the color Palette screen. The Luxor can store up to 250 preset colors, labeled numerically as seen in the image. Each color requires hue and saturation values. Hue is the primary attribute of a color. The selected value is found on the standard color wheel and is represented by numeric values between 0 and 360. Saturation is the percentage of hue seen with white light filling in the remainder (e.g. 80% saturation is 80% of the selected hue and 20% of white light).

  • Access the color palette by selecting the COLOR function from the HOME screen.
  • Only four colors are displayed at a time. Turn the scroll wheel clockwise to access the remaining 246 color labels.
  • Use the scroll wheel to highlight the desired color label (e.g. C1). Adjust the Hue/Saturation settings using one of two methods:

  1. Color Swatch: Scroll one click to the right to highlight the color swatch and press the scroll wheel to open the Color Selection screen. Adjust the hue (top) and/or saturation (bottom) by selecting the appropriate chart, scrolling left or right until the desired setting is located, and pressing the scroll wheel again to finalize the setting.
  2. Hue/Sat Values: Scroll to highlight the hue or saturation. Press the scroll wheel to select, then scroll to select the desired values. Press scroll wheel again to finalize the setting.

  • The test group column allows the user to view the created color on a specific group. The color will remain active until the color palette screen is exited or the test group is set to off. Scroll to the test group box and select a group to activate a color label onto that group.
  • Changes to colors in real time are made when the color is active through a test group, a theme, a program, or a manual program.
