In keeping with Obsidian Control Systems’ practice of providing valuable educational resources to lighting designers and programmers, the lighting control brand has made available training videos covering the NX4 lighting console and ONYX lighting control platform. A training video series covering the compact NX2 lighting controller will be available soon.

Hosted by David Henry of Learn Stage Lighting (learnstagelighting.com), over 2 hours of content is condensed into short, segmented videos to watch at your own pace.
