Hopping from gig to gig and can't bring your console with you?  Doing the lighting in a venue whose desk has seen better days?  That's where ETCnomad control comes in.  Small enough to fit on your keychain, ETCnomad plugs into your computer and opens up the power of Eos, Cobalt, & Hog 4 PC software, so you can program and run shows anywhere.

ETCnomad can serve as a primary controller, a backup, or a client device - or work offline entirely - operating on either a PC platform running Microsoft Windows 7 or higher or natively on a Mac (Intel processor) running Mavericks or later.  Available in either a base or unlocked version, the base unit supports 1024 outputs while the unlocked version supports 6144.

ETCnomad Features

  • 2 or 12 DMX universes¹
  • Computer-based lighting control software, USB key allows output from Eos, Cobalt, or Hog 4 PC software on your computer
  • Output DMX via Ethernet (sACN/Net3/ArtNet), or optional Gadget USB to DMX Interface
  • Works with Programming Wings, Fader Wings (Universal Wings are PC only), and OSC Controllers²
  • Supports iRFR, aRFR, Net3 Show Control and I/O Gateways
  • Up to three fader wings may be used
  • See datasheet for minimum hardware requirements.  Eos generally works with PC's running Windows 7 or higher, and Intel Mac's running OS X or higher.  Hog 4 PC supports Windows 10 only.
  • ¹ Starting in Eos v2.8 and Hog 4 PC v3.12.  Earlier versions of Eos only unlock 1 universe at base level. Earlier versions of Hog 4 PC not compatible.
  • ² Hog 4 PC only supports OSC/MIDI controllers when using fully unlocked (6K/12-universe) ETCnomad Dongle, or with Hog Wings.

  • Three user-definable workspaces per monitor, each with discrete split-screen controls, frame management, and snapshots.
