ETC Nomad

Hopping from gig to gig and can’t bring your console with you? Doing the lighting in a theater whose desk has seen better days? That’s where Nomad™ control comes in. Small enough to fit on your keychain, Nomad plugs into your computer and opens up the power of both Cobalt® and Eos®/Element™ software, so you can program and run shows anywhere.

Nomad 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® 7/8, or natively on a Mac (Intel processor) running OS X (Mavericks). When it’s a primary or a backup, Nomad’s system output equals that of the device with the lowest number of outputs. When it’s a client, Nomad’s output capacity is ignored.

There are four output counts to choose from: Nomad 256 (1/2 universe), Nomad 1024 (1024 outputs) and Nomad 1536 (1536 outputs) – which can be field-upgraded without any hardware changes – and Nomad 2048 (2048 outputs). Nomad communicates via Ethernet-based lighting protocols Net3™/ACN/sACN and ArtNet, or with the ETC Gadget™ USB-to-DMX converter (at this time, Nomad supports only one connected Gadget). RDM is supported via Net3 Gateways.

Just wing it. When Nomad is connected to a PC, it can support a fader wing, giving you even more capacity to work with. And for both Cobalt and Eos systems, you can use your favorite ETC accessories – like the RFR (Radio Focus Remote) and iRFR and aRFR mobile apps for Apple® and Android® devices. Nomad also plays well with OSC (Open Sound Control) controllers, and when running the Cobalt application, supports connection to third-party USB-MIDI panels via Direct MIDI.
