*Weights and dimensions typical. Cobalt 20 is shipped in a carton on a pallet. The shipping weight is the combined weight of the console on the pallet.
Output protocols are distributed using ETCNet2 DMX Nodes or Net3 DMX/RDM Gateways. I/O Gateways and Show Control Gateways provide switch-closure functionality, MIDI and SMPTE time code.
Cobalt 20 is offered as a base console with 5000 control channels and 4,096 outputs (8 universes of DMX512A). A single control channel may control only intensity (dimmers) or it may control a DMX-controlled device (moving light, LED, media server, etc.).
To increase the capacity of the console, order additional 512-output upgrades.
For example, to take the console to its maximum configuration, order a console and twenty-four (24) 512-output upgrades.
4,096 outputs + (24x512) = 16,384 outputs (32 universes of DMX512)
Two universes are available at the console via 5-Pin XLR and all universes may be distributed via Ethernet-based methods, including Net3 DMX/RDM Gateways, ETCNet2 DMX Nodes and/or ArtNet nodes (purchased separately).
