Enjoy the concept of PC-based lighting control, but worry about the risk? Don't want your laptop to walk away from a venue? Concerned that someone on your crew would try to play video games or browse the Internet when they should be programming?
Then you need ETCnomad Puck™.
This ETC-provided and supported mini-computer is locked down, so no software other than ETC applications can be installed, giving you peace of mind that your device is safe, secure and used only for your shows. ETCnomad Puck 512 also makes a very cost-effective, highly portable Remote Video Interface.
A small but powerful control device, Puck has one HDMI video port (DVI adapters can be used if needed), one Mini Display Port (Mini DP to HDMI adaptor included), one network port and four USB ports. This is a Windows 7 unit; as such, multi-touch displays are supported.
A hat trick of control. ETCnomad Puck can serve as a primary, backup or client device, and it can also work offline.
ETCnomad Puck is available in two output counts:
- ETCnomad Puck 512 (and a rocking RVI)
