What if you could reach out and touch the light - craft it, color it, move it - directly and without feeling like there's a machine between you and your design? You see the light in your head and with minimal keystrokes see that creation on stage.
Cobalt™ is designed from the ground up to get you from thought to reality as quickly as possible.
Short commands coupled with direct-access touchscreen tools make the console disappear under your fingertips - nothing stands between you and the light.
Put your finger on it
The tools you need to manage your looks with speed and precision are all in there - thousands of devices in the library, customizable by you so that they fit your way of working: groups, palettes, presets as building blocks of your show; effect playbacks for completely configurable effects on conventionals, movers, LEDs and more. All with interactive controls available on the touchscreens. These tools let you break free of syntax and work with light directly.
Masters make anything possible
The masters are the heart of the Cobalt system. With unlimited content possibilities, the masters let you customize the desk so that every playback, every button, fits the way you build or play back your show.
Do it your way
Cobalt works your way with options for how your looks are stored and played back. Put information and controls where you need them. Build your own channel displays using channel icons or fixture symbols, and mix channels with other selection tools for direct access to groups and palettes.
Maximum workspace = maximum flexibility
Cobalt 20 offers the largest work surface in the Cobalt family, with built-in, articulating, 17" high-resolution, multi-touch monitors. It also provides support for three additional external monitors that can also be single- or multi-touch, and 40 master playbacks with 20 motorized faders and 20 backlit color-coded endless pots. Cobalt 20 controls up to 5000 devices (dimmers, LEDs, moving lights or media servers) on up to 32 universes of output (16,384 parameters) without the need for additional processing hardware.
