The ETC Nomad Puck Lighting Controller Kit is capable of handling 512 outputs. This computer is locked down, so no software other than ETC applications can be installed, thwarting tampering and ensuring that the device is used only for your shows. With Nomad Puck, you don't have to choose between the Cobalt and Eos Element families, because it runs both platforms, giving you the ability to quickly and easily switch from platform to platform. 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.
Puck can serve as a primary, backup, or client device and it can also work offline. When you use it as a primary or backup, its system output is determined by the device with the lowest output configuration. When it's connected as a client, the output capacity of Puck is ignored.
Puck communicates over the Ethernet-based lighting protocols Net3/ACN/sACN and Artnet, or by the ETC Gadget USB-to-DMX converter. Currently, Puck can support only one connected Gadget. RDM is supported via Net3 Gateways. Puck can be used with a fader wing, RFR (Radio Focus Remote), and iRFR and aRFR mobile apps for Apple and Android devices, and is compatible with OSC (Open Sound Control) controllers. While Nomad Puck is running the Cobalt application, it can also be connected to third-party USB-MIDI panels via Direct MIDI.
