ETC introduces exciting changes to the Eos lighting-control family

Middleton, WI (18 November 2014) – ETC Eos®-family controls have set the bar for professional-quality lighting around the globe. Now ETC is raising that bar even higher with expanded control outputs, new portable controllers, lowered pricing and a powerful new software package.

Eos-family upgrades
The Eos Titanium (Ti®) and Gio® consoles, as well as the RPU3 (Remote Processor Unit), just became more powerful. Their motherboards have been changed, which allows currently shipping products to output up to 32,768, without co-processing. Desks with the new motherboard have three display-port outputs instead of DVI ports. Any older Ti, Gio and RPU3 products (with DVI connectors) can upgrade to a total of 16,384 outputs, and both hardware variants can upgrade in 1,024, 2,048 or 4,096 increments.

“The output upgrades are now even more affordable,” explains ETC Eos Controls Product Manager Anne Valentino. “Users needing to increase their system capacity can upgrade through a lower-cost pricing structure. Anyone wanting to expand their output can contact an ETC dealer for more information.”

New Nomad controllers

ETC’s Nomad™ and Nomad Puck™ mini-controllers are the perfect companions for on-the-go lighting. They connect to any computer, turning it into a lighting controller than can run both Eos/Element™ and Cobalt® software, so users get the best of both worlds. ETC is now expanding the product family to include Nomad 512 and Nomad Puck 512.

Eos software v2.3

At the LDI tradeshow, November 21st through 23rd, in Las Vegas, ETC will demo Eos-family software version 2.3. The new software includes the implementation of Open Sound Control and adds new functionality to effects. It also introduces new color controls that provide multiple options for color spaces, new tinting tools and live color-fade options.
