6/1/22: Major New Feature Release  for Mongoose!

We have released a number of new major features (software and firmware) for the professional operator. These include:

  • Live adjustment of show and cue timing (including music) while show is running

  • Standby mode of over 2 WEEKS for multi-day concerts, theater, rainouts, and multi-day shows

  • Complete show continuity and script checking in 2 seconds (down from 10 seconds)

  • Beacon Mode in addition to standard mode for for semi-autonomous firing for certain show situations

  • Remote power-down and standby of field units

  • Increased DMX and Multicue capacity

  • Automated cold weather indications for battery management

  • Pre-loading of shows to field units by USB drive (for very complex DMX sequences)

  • Over 4000 show steps maintained *per field unit*

  • Smart shutdown of DMX flame effects on show pauses

  • Use of external DJ button matrix and mini wireless keyboards for show and effect  control (key mapping)

  • Tighter integration with Finale3D Pyro and DMX effects using Mongoose Interchange Format files

  • Import of FWsim scripts in addition to other pre-existing scripts

  • Bug fixes and consistency improvements.

Since this is a feature release, you can continue to use your existing firmware and software until you want to upgrade to these features. See the Release Notes under the "Support" section of the website for detailed descriptions. In our commitment to our users, all enhanced features are supported on all Mongoose hardware, regardless of AGE or model. New Display Director can be used with older firmware (or a mixed set of field units), and new firmware will work with older Display Director  versions.  We are committed to backwards compatibility and forward progress. We do recommend you become comfortable with the user interface changes in our simulated environment or in dry-runs to get a feel for the changes. Thank you for choosing Mongoose!

"Here at SimpliFire, we believe that shooting any sized show should be easy. Your wireless system should be reliable. It should be multi-functional. It should be transparent so each shooter can monitor every aspect of the system in real time. We believe in less work and simplicity."

From Our Customers and Shooters

"The Mongoose is BY FAR one of the best, most cost effective systems"

"The Mongoose wireless is outperforming wired systems, while Simplifire over delivers on support."

"Being a veteran of the traditional pin board systems, Fire One’s Fire Lite system and the Star Fire system, the Mongoose is one of the easiest and most advanced systems on the market today. With an easy to use software interface, one of the most intuitive systems too.  Highly recommend it for the professional pyro!"
