Obsidian Control Systems and Capture Visualisation announce partnership for ONYX console line

Obsidian Control Systems and Capture Visualisation have announced a new global partnership agreement to include a Capture licence with every ONYX console, allowing all NX console owners immediate access to the popular and powerful lighting design and visualisation software.

Every NX2 and NX4 lighting console will include a download of the latest version of Capture after a simple online registration. Users will receive an unrestricted standard license of a Capture Edition depending on console type. All licenses are eligible for upgrades through Capture or any of its authorised resellers.

Obsidian Control Systems and Capture Visualisation will be enhancing connectivity between ONYX and Capture over time for a seamless workflow and true plug-and-play experience, including synchronised patching and real-time autofocus.

“Capture has been a great partner for Elation over the years and we look forward to strengthening this even further as we evolve the ONYX platform,” says Obsidian Control Systems product manager Matthias Hinrichs. “Visualisation is an important part of the console programming workflow and we are happy to partner with this leading visualizer. The Capture team is great to work with and is fully dedicated to the visualisation needs of the market. We know our users will benefit from the increased cooperation between our companies.”

“The team at Obsidian Control Systems and the ONYX platform come with years of expertise in advanced lighting control so the decision to bundle a standard Capture licence with every console feels rewarding,” adds Capture sales director Vangelis Manolis. “It must also be rewarding for ONYX users since on top of visualisation they will be able to work with design, reports, paperwork and presentation features, amongst others. Elation has been a successful Capture reseller for years, and therefore we trust that the partnership with Obsidian Control Systems will also succeed in adding value when Capture and ONYX are used together by our mutual end users.”

Obsidian Control Systems’ ONYX platform was launched in 2018 and has recently begun shipping the powerful and compact NX2 console to its customers. At NAMM 2019, it introduced the next generation NX4 with enhanced playback options and motorised faders, a first in its class.

Capture 2018 is a comprehensive real-time lighting and video visualization software with world-class library support and rapidly growing user base.
