Product Description

Important: New Gadgets will temporarily lack some features from previous generations. This includes:

  • Remote Device Management (RDM)
  • Device firmware update via DMX ports

These features will be reenabled via a firmware update in early 2023.

Calling all lighting students and educators! Do you want your own professional yet affordable control system? We have just the answer for you: the ETCnomad Education Package. It’s an ideal foundation for students interested in lighting control.

What does the Education Package include?

It includes a base (1K output) ETCnomad USB key and a Gadget II 2-universe USB to DMX/RDM interface. The tiny USB key plugs into a computer, turning it into a flexible controller that runs Eos Family software.

With the unlocked software, you can network your Mac or PC directly to your lighting system, effectively gaining an extra workstation. The Gadget connects the computer to your lighting system’s DMX/RDM devices, so you can even control your lights directly from your laptop.

If you’re a PC user, you can use your ETCnomad USB key to run Hog 4 PC as well!


You can purchase the Package if you are:

  • An individual currently in an education program or undergoing an apprenticeship or internship
  • A student or teacher at a primary or secondary school
  • A student, professor or instructor at a college or university

Proof of enrollment, valid at the time of order, is required as proof of eligibility. There is a limit of one package per customer.

  1. Couldn't be better deal!

    Posted by J. Dingle on 24th Feb 2024

    This package is great and works flawlessly. For 2 full universes of DMX this is a steal for the price. If you're a student, get it now. It'll save you loads later. It's so useful and practical for small to medium events, all you need is your laptop.
    No regrets so far, very happy with the package.
    Even arrived earlier than expected.
