Congo jr powered by Cobalt software is a sub-compact solution suitable for tiny control rooms or touring, with an extremely small footprint and the possibility for expansion using fader wings.  The console supports up to two external DVI monitors that can be single- or multi-touch.  Congo jr powered by Cobalt controls up to 3,072 devices (dimmers, LEDs, moving lights or media servers) on up to 12 universes of output (6,144 parameters) without the need for additional processing hardware.  The Congo jr facepanel also fits within a 19-inch equipment rack on a tray.

What if you could reach out and touch the light - craft it, color it, move it - directly and without feeling like there's a machine between you and your design?  You see the light in your head and with minimal keystrokes see that creation on stage.  Cobalt is designed from the ground up to get you from thought to reality as quickly as possible.  Short commands coupled with direct-access touchscreen tools make the console disappear under your fingertips - nothing stands between you and the light.

The tools you need to manage your looks with speed and precision are all in there - thousands of devices in the library, customizable by you so that they fit your way of working: groups, palettes, presets as building blocks of your show; effect playbacks for completely configurable effects on conventionals, movers, LEDs and more.  All with interactive controls available on the touchscreens.  These tools let you break free of syntax and work with light directly.
