Are you a student with high ambitions? Do you want your own professional yet affordable control system? ETC has just the answer for you: the ETCnomad Student Package. It’s an ideal foundation for students interested in lighting control.

What does the student package include?

It includes a 512 ETCnomad lighting controller key and a Gadget 1 DMX Universe USB to XLR interface. The tiny USB key plugs into a computer, turning it into a flexible controller that runs both ETC Cobalt® and Eos®-family software; and the Gadget connects the computer to your lighting system’s DMX/RDM devices.

How much is it?

The recommended retail price for the ETCnomad Student Package is 250,00 € / £195 (+ tax), which is a significant saving on the usual retail price.


Am I eligible?

You can purchase the package if you’re an individual currently in education or undergoing an apprenticeship or internship. A copy of your student ID or apprenticeship/internship paperwork is required as proof of eligibility. There is a limit of one package per student.


How do I get one?

The ETCnomad Student Package is available throughout Europe via ETC’s extensive network of dealers.

What next?

There’s no need to worry — the dongle will not expire when you complete your studies and there will be nothing extra to pay. You do have the option to upgrade to more universes, although this will be at the regular price.
