The Eos Apex Processor carries the same power as Apex consoles, in a 2U 19-inch rack mount unit. It includes the same one- and ten-gigabit Ethernet connections as Apex consoles, making it a great choice to drive a high-powered rig on its own, or serve as a backup to keep large systems running safely. You can even monitor and interact with your system using the built-in haptic touchscreen. Or make the Eos Apex Processor into a workstation by adding USB-connectable devices - including touchscreens, Eos Fader Wings, and the Eos Programming Wing.
48 DMX universes¹ with no co-processing
Full Eos Apex-class power in a 19" rack, use as primary or backup
5-inch high-resolution front panel display, with multi-touch and haptic touch feedback
Supports three external high resolution Display Port monitors or touchscreens
4 Gigabit EtherCon RJ45 PoE++ ports
2 10-Gigabit SFP+ ports
sACN and Art-Net network output protocols
8 USB Ports (4 USB-A, 4 USB-C)
Up to three fader wings may be used
Does not include 5-pin DMX outputs. If your use case requires 5-pin DMX output at the processor, make sure to add a USB Gadget II or network gateway.
¹ Technically supports up to 64 DMX universes once fully unlocked, however a free factory upgrade code is required so ETC can provide you personalized support.
Approachable yet powerful syntax for programmers of every level
Award-winning color controls, including six Color Pickers and a Gel Picker for color mixing.
Custom-design your control interface using Magic Sheets, with topographical or abstract layouts. Full interaction with the command line allows command instructions - from the simplest and most immediate to the most complex - accessed from a mouse or single- or multi-touch displays.
Augment3d 3D programming and visualization environment.
Virtual Media Server function for pixel-mapping
Timecode and automation integration
Show file compatibility with the entire Eos Family, from the Eos Apex 20 down to the Element 2² and ETCnomad.
Three user-definable workspaces per monitor, each with discrete split-screen controls, frame management, and snapshots.
Client/server networking and synchronized backup
Client and Offline programming on PC³ and Mac³ via ETCnomad
99 discrete online users with partitioned control
32,768 Control Channels (Fixtures)⁴
10,000 Cues and 999 Cue Lists
200 Active Playbacks and 999 Submasters
100 10-Fader Pages for Playbacks and Submasters
1,000 each of Presets, Palettes, Groups, Effects, Snapshots, Curves, and Color Paths
² The Element 2 does not support Multiple Cue Lists or more than one active playback. Additionally, fader wings are not supported.
³ PC requires Windows 10 or higher. Mac requires macOS Mojave or later. The ETCnomad software is free for offline programming or "mirror mode", but requires a dongle to act as a client.
⁴ The console is still limited by the number of DMX universes/outputs, thus you may not be able to use all these channels.
