    Question cypher lite and cypher live pro

    I was just browsing the neo laser web site and coundn't help notice the similarity of the cypher lite and cypher live pro software was to that which I think is bundled with the flashback 3 board from pangolin.
    Are they the same products ?
    I am thinking of changing my control software, even possibly going for the qm2000.net, but i will need to work on the wife for that to happen.
    The fb3 looks excellent value and seems to get very good reviews here on the forum.
    Its only for hobby use but i guess we all aspire to ld2000 at some point.

    The neo software is essentially a customized version of LivePRO and LiveQ, with control for neo, projector specific functions, such as control for diffraction gratings and the like.

    True... I guess he just truncated the "321" off the end of your nick. However, since Dave (without the 321) had replied immediately prior to Paul's post, I assumed he was talking to that Dave.

    Clearly, the problem is too many Daves...

    I have a Cypher Lite (kind of). It's with Pangolin at the moment having power issues ironed out.
    But the software is live pro with an added panel for beamtable control.

    Hi all,

    Just a few quick points.

    First, Dave was correct that the "Cypher" versions of the software are similar to LiveQUICK and LivePRO, but they have some extra additions that control NEO-NEON-specific projector hardware.

    Second, the "power problems" that Insanity mentioned are not Pangolin problems per se. OEM manufacturers purchase our hardware and apply it within their own systems. It is sometimes the applying where people get into trouble... We'll have to see where the problem is, and then offer advice to help this particular OEM manufacturer.

    Best regards,

    William Benner

    I should clear up the point I made before about my power issues.

    I am no expert on this stuff and won't pretend to be but I think there were issues with my Cypher lite box delivering power correctly to the FB3 board inside.

    Having sent the screen dumps to Pangolin, they very kindly offered to troubleshoot and fix the problem for me, even though it is not a Pangolin issue as such.

    I think this just highlights the level of support that Pangolin provides.

    In all my years in the IT industry, I have never seen such a great level of support, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank the guys at Pangolin for such a sterling job.

    I have used other packages in the past, but nothing I have seen comes close to the functionality of Pangolin, when added to great support like this, you really feel that you spent your money well.
