ETC is offering lighting designers, operators and students a chance to win a
controller at this year's Prolight+ Sound show, March 12th-15th, in Frankfurt.
The ETCnomad dongle gives you access on your laptop to the powerful features of
ETC's lighting control consoles
, to take with you anywhere. You can program and play back your show at your computer or use it as a backup to any of ETC's lighting desks.
To enter, simply go to
and register; entrants can choose one of four one-minute music tracks. The site charges a small fee to download a song, but it is free to listen to with no obligation to purchase. Using the free (Windows®-only) visualization software on the ETC website, you can simply program a one-minute light show to go with the music.
Everyone who enters will get a free ticket to Prolight + Sound, where you can use the
desk on ETC's stand, number B62 in Hall 9, to put the finishing touches on your show if you want, and see it played live using a live rig with fixtures from ETC, moving lights from Robe, and Magic Panels from Ayrton. ETC staff and lighting professionals will be available for help with fine-tuning.
Representatives from ETC, Robe, Ayrton and EVENT Rookie magazine will watch the shows at the end of each day and choose a daily winner, with the first-prize winner taking home an ETCnomad PC controller kit.
