Obsidian Control Systems to hold in-person training at Netherlands HQ 20-22 September

The Netherlands – Obsidian Control Systems is hosting three in-person training sessions on the ONYX control platform at its European headquarters in Kerkrade, The Netherlands. The training sessions will take place 20, 21 and 22 September and will focus on Obsidian’s ONYX software while covering the DyLOS pixel composer, NETRON Ether DMX devices and Capture visualisation software.

The training will cover Beginner (20 September), Intermediate (21 September) and Advanced (22 September) levels, allowing anyone with or without ONYX experience to get a comprehensive understanding of the powerful software. The goal of the training is for lighting professionals to grow their knowledge base and improve their skills to become more effective and creative lighting programmers.

Each session will dive into the details of the ONYX platform, using an NX2 console in a hands-on approach to learning. With a variety of new features and improvements recently added to ONYX, DyLOS, NETRON and Capture, lighting pros are encouraged to take advantage of these training sessions to get the most out of the platform.

Users can register for one, two or all three sessions, depending on their needs and experience level. The training will be conducted in English and the cost per day is €249.00. Participants who attend all three days will receive an NX-DMX free upon completion of the course. Please note that while each session may offer some advice on creative programming techniques, the training does not teach lighting design skills.
