ETCnomad & ETCnomad Puck


Lighting control wherever you want to go

ETCnomad & Hog 4 PC Hopping from gig to gig and can't bring your console with you? Doing the lighting in a venue whose desk has seen better days? Want to unlock multiple platforms with just one device? That's where ETCnomad control comes in. Small enough to fit on your keychain, the ETCnomad USB plugs into your computer and opens up the power of Eos, Cobalt, and High End Systems' Hog 4 PC software, so you can program and run shows anywhere.

The ETCnomad software for Mac and PC is absolutely free to download and use offline, giving you full access to all the latest professional programming tools - including Magic Sheets, effects, and the powerful 3D programming and visualization tools of the Augment3d platform.With the USB key, ETCnomad can serve as a primary controller, a backup, or a client device operating on either a PC platform running Microsoft Windows® 7 or higher, or natively on a Mac running Mojave (v10.14) or later.

ETCnomad is available in a base or unlocked version. The base unit supports 1024 outputs while the unlocked version supports 6144. (Note that Eos Software 2.8.X or earlier unlocks the base at 512 rather than 1024.)

Note that without the USB key, the software functions in offline or mirror mode. The ETCnomad  is upgradeable to reach maximum capacity.

Education Package

Are you a student or educator? The ETCnomad Education Package gets you discounted access to the unlocked software key and a Gadget DMX output device.

See the minimum hardware specifications for Augment3d.

When you use it as a primary or backup, the system output is determined by the device with the lowest output configuration. When it's connected as a client, the output capacity of ETCnomad  is ignored.

To find out what features are supported and to see user-interface descriptions, check out the Eos Family and Element documentation here.

NOTE: ETCnomad is also compatible with Cobalt and Hog 4 PC.
