Obsidian Control Systems launches NX 4 at NAMM 2019

USA – Obsidian Control Systems will be showcasing at the NAMM Show in Anaheim 24-27 January the newest control product under the ONYX lighting control platform. Designers, programmers and operators are invited to Booth #11542 in Hall A for a first look and hands-on demo of the extremely powerful NX 4. (The NX 4 will also be showing at the ISE Show in Amsterdam 5-8 February.)

The NX 4 is the newest member of the innovative ONYX platform from Obsidian Control Systems. Equipped with a range of professional features and using the latest in industrial components, the NX 4 is designed to handle even the largest show with ease. With a well-arranged combination of motorized and manual faders, as well as an array of playback buttons, the NX 4 offers 44 total playbacks in a compact yet extremely powerful package.

The NX 4 includes a high-brightness, 15.6”, full-HD multi-touch screen with support for two external 4K touch displays. Eight assignable parameter encoders, a dedicated intensity encoder, an assistive mini-touch screen, full keypad and command section, and a dedicated grand master make for a dutifully intuitive control surface.

Two independent playback sections offer instant access. The main playback with ten motorised faders plus ten play-pairs allow for quick page changes while the sub playback with 12 faders and 12 button playbacks mean that important cues are always at the fingertips.

The NX 4 houses a powerful new Intel Hexa-Core processor, 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 without the need for costly external processing networks results in unprecedented power in this form factor. The NX 4 is also ergonomic with motorised playback faders, short depth, easy screen access, full ONYX command and keypad section, and bright, adjustable HD touch screen. With four DMX ports, Timecode, MIDI and dual Gigabit ports for up to 64 Universes of Art-Net, sACN plus the ONYX X-Net protocol, the NX 4 has all the connectivity and power the ever-increasing sizes of shows demand.
