Welcome to Eos!

  • So you’re new to Eos programming... 

    Whether you’ve just purchased a console moved to a new venue, or are simply interested in learning a vibrant and powerful lighting control system, we’ve got the resources to get your started.
     

    Get the Software

    New Users - ETCnomad

    No console? No problem. Simply down the latest (free!) Eos software for Mac or PC to get started.

    Once installed on your Mac or PC, Eos Family software is full-featured - giving you complete access to all the professional tools of a console. Need to do more than prep your show file? Add an ETCnomad USB key and output device to control your lighting system directly, or to link up to another console. 

    Teaching or learning with Eos?

    If you’re a student or an educator, the ETCnomad Education Package provides access to a discounted ETCnomad and Gadget II bundle – everything you need for your very own, portable lighting control system. Also be sure to check out this resource page for using Eos as a teaching tool
