Feature rich and never restricted in its capabilities, the powerful NX 2 is the ultimate compact yet fully integrated lighting controller with all the connectivity and power the ever increasing size of shows demands. As a member of the innovative ONYX platform, the NX 2 offers a slate of professional features like high brightness, full-HD multi-touchscreen, 8 assignable parameter encoders, an assistive mini touchscreen, full keypad and command section, a dedicated grandmaster, and 10 full playbacks with four freely assignable buttons.

Utilising the latest in industrial components, the NX 2 contains a powerful 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 small form factor.

Based on the NX 2 console, the NX Wing utilises the same rugged design and components with an identical footprint and layout. Through its USB connection, the NX Wing provides a responsive professional hardware surface to operate ONYX on any PC system without compromises.

The NX Wing provides extensive connectivity with 4 DMX Ports, MIDI and Timecode ports while unlocking 128 Universes of control when connected to ONYX on a PC.
