NX 4

The NX4 is a comprehensive feature packed control surface. With a well-arranged combination of motorized and manual faders as well as an array of playback button the NX4 offers 44 total playbacks in a compact yet extremely powerful package. As a member of the innovative ONYX platform from Obsidian Control Systems the NX4 is feature rich and never restricted in its capabilities. NX4 includes a high-brightness full HD multi-touch screen, 8 assignable parameter encoders, dedicated Intensity encoder, an assistive mini touch-screen, full keypad and command section and a dedicated grand master.

Two independent playback sections offer instant access. The main playback with 10 motorized faders plus 10 play-pairs allows for quick page changes while the sub playback with 12 faders and 12 button playbacks allows important cues to always be at the user’s fingertips.

Utilizing the latest in industrial components the NX4 contains 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 result in unprecedented power in this form factor. The NX4 is ergonomic with its motorized playback faders, short depth, easy screen access, full ONYX command and keypad section and bright adjustable HD touch screen. It is always ready to run the largest shows and events at a moment’s notice.

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 NX4 has all the connectivity and power the ever-increasing sizes of shows demand. Two additional 4K touch monitors are supported for even more direct access at any time.
