Controllux Signs as Exclusive Distributor of BlackTrax in Benelux


Toronto, Canada, January 16th 2024: CAST Group of Companies, a global leader in pioneering next-generation software and hardware solutions for the live event and entertainment production sectors, proudly announces Controllux as an exclusive distributor of BlackTrax in Europe.

Expanding on its established role as a key distributor of CAST’s award winning software solutions, wysiwyg and Vivien, Controllux has further expanded its portfolio with the inclusion of the entire BlackTrax hardware range. BlackTrax is a vision-based tracking system that connects to different third-party applications, such as lighting consoles, media servers, immersive audio systems, game engines, and any other third party that accepts the RTTrPL or RTTrPM open source protocols. This strategic collaboration is geared towards not just enhancing the availability of advanced real-time tracking technologies within the region, but also to provide the highest level of support for any organization or creative looking to leverage the technology and seamlessly integrate it into their production workflows.

“We are excited to extend our partnership with Controllux and expand the reach of BlackTrax in the Benelux region. With over 10 years of strong track-record in channel management and distribution for CAST’s products, Controllux is an ideal partner to propel BlackTrax further in Europe. With the successful launch of BT-1 last year, designed to bridge a crucial gap, offering a compact and cost-effective tracking solution, we are dedicated to advancing breakthroughs in tracking technology. We believe that Controllux’s expertise, market presence, and client support will significantly contribute to its success in the Live Event and Entertainment industries.”
