Designers to benefit from Onyx lighting control upgrade


Obsidian Control Systems has upgraded its lighting control software, aiming to open up new possibilities for creative designers.

Now featuring an advanced pixel composer, the Onyx 4.4 platform offers a diverse tool set to support performances with organic colour compositions and animations.

Enhancing the design process, the Dylos pixel composer is designed to encourage experimentation rather than an overly technical approach with merely numbers and values that can distract from the creative process.

The engine has been designed from the ground up for power and performance to manage many fixtures and parameters. The Dylos workflow follows the same access to any regular stage light programmed with Onyx.

As part of the launch, Obsidian Control Systems is offering all users of Dylos a carefully curated content package with more than 1,100 media files in many categories. In addition, any custom user content can be imported at any time in the majority of codecs and sizes.

Onyx 4.4 is compatible with all NX4 and NX2 consoles, all Onyx PC systems and the M1HD and M2GOHD M-Series controllers. A variety of USB devices – such as the NX-Touch or NX-DMX – are supported to enable the Onyx experience to be tailored to any application.
