ETCnomad & ETCnomad Puck

  • ETCnomad Puck

    All the advantages of PC control. None of the risk.


  • 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 256 also makes a very cost-effective, highly portable Remote Video Interface.

    It's like having two consoles in one . With ETCnomad Puck, you don't have to choose between the Cobalt® and Eos®/Element™ families, because it runs both platforms. A small but powerful control device, Puck has two HDMI video ports (DVI adapters can be used if needed), one network port and three 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.

    Safety in numbers. ETCnomad Puck comes in five output counts:

    • ETCnomad Puck 2048 (four universes)
    • ETCnomad Puck 1536 (three universes)
    • ETCnomad Puck 1024 (two universes)
    • ETCnomad Puck 512 (one universe)
    • ETCnomad Puck 256 (1/2 universe and a rocking RVI)

    ETCnomad Puck's functionality comes from the application in use. To find out what features are supported and to see user-interface descriptions, check out the Cobalt, Eos-family and Element documentation.
