Obsidian Control Systems Shipping NX 2, NX Wing

The consoles are the first lighting-control products available under the Onyx platform.

Obsidian Control Systems is shipping the NX 2 and NX Wing, the first lighting-control products available under its Onyx platform. Both consoles ship with new Onyx software.

The compact NX 2 is a fully integrated lighting controller with all the connectivity and power today’s shows demand. Its features include a high-brightness, full-HD multi touchscreen; eight assignable parameter encoders; an assistive mini touchscreen; full keypad and command section; a dedicated grand master and 10 full playbacks with four freely assignable buttons. 

Utilizing the latest industrial components, the NX 2 contains an Intel Hexa-Core processor, a high-speed NVMe SSD drive and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Fast boot times, instant operation and the ability to process 64 Universes right inside the console result in unprecedented power in a small form factor. 

Based on the NX 2 console, the NX Wing utilizes the same rugged design and components with an identical footprint and layout. Through its USB connection, the NX Wing provides a responsive professional hardware surface to operate Onyx on any PC system. The NX Wing provides extensive connectivity with four DMX Ports, MIDI and Timecode ports while unlocking 128 Universes of control when connected to Onyx on a PC.   

Designed for use with all new NX and existing M-Series hardware, Onyx software scales from the smallest shows to the largest touring productions with easy-to-use tools and optimized graphical work environments that can adapt to any task. 

A Capture license is included with every NX 2 console, allowing immediate access to the popular lighting-design and visualization software; the console includes a download of the latest version of Capture Solo after a simple online registration. All licenses are eligible for upgrades through Capture or any of its authorized resellers.

Obsidian Control Systems products are distributed worldwide by Elation Professional.
