QLab Remote is the iOS companion app for remote control of QLab, the award-winning live show control software for macOS. With QLab Remote, you can edit your QLab workspace from wherever you are in the theatre.
QLab Remote is a powerful tool that you can use for free! In Read-Only Mode, your team can safely follow along with a workspace in real time, edit notes, and flag cues as you sit in tech rehearsal without worrying about accidental changes.
With the QLab Remote “Show Control & Editing” in-app purchase, you can send commands to QLab, run cues, move the playhead, open cue inspectors, edit cue parameters like audio input and output crosspoints, adjust video surface geometry, and more! Refine your design from the audience.
With QLab Remote’s “Light Tools”, you can enter light commands to change levels, and record and update cues with the Light Keypad — a tool designed specifically for interacting with QLab’s Light Dashboard. The Instrument Check tool makes it effortless to run through all of your lights to ensure everything is working correctly.
QLab Remote is supported on all device sizes — from the iPhone SE all the way to the largest iPad, with full support for iPad Split View! Attach a keyboard and navigate with shortcuts familiar to QLab power users or use the intuitive touch interface to navigate your workspace.
Complete control, at a distance or up close.
Say goodbye to squinting at distant video projectors and hello to complete, refined, tactile control. Now you can fine-tune your video outputs from anywhere!
Interact with the cue carts you’ve built in QLab, wherever you go and with a touchable interface.
Establishing a connection is easy! Simply connect your iOS device and Mac to the same network using either Wi-Fi or a USB hard-wired connection.
QLab Remote automatically finds any QLab workspace on the network. Updates in QLab are instantly reflected in QLab Remote and vice versa.
“Everything that I needed in a Show Remote! Every performance in a new venue I can video map the surfaces and adjust audio levels without having to go into the booth and control the main computer! I can do it from the remote, walking around the stage! This is incredible! Thank you thank you thank you! I may be a magician but you guys created real magic!”
