Presenting the Cobalt Light Server - all the functionality of ETC's Cobalt lighting control system, but in a purpose-built, rack-mounted enclosure!  The Cobalt Light Server's 19" design packs Cobalt's identical features and channel/output capacities into a stand-alone enclosure suitable for permanently installed applications.  Running the powerful Cobalt operating software, the Cobalt Light Server is a fully independent lighting playback controller or a convenient backup option.
