Zero88, the English lighting company, has launched a new console. The "Orb" I think it's supposed to be a competitor for the EOS or Strand's Palette. Zero88 makes reasonably low end consoles. So hopefully, this will do all the things an EOS can do but for a lower price. * Control channels : 2048 (Patchable to any DMX address) * Playbacks : 10 (Plus 2 Master Faders) * Submasters : 600 (20 pages of 30, via DMX In) * Cues : 1000 stacks x 1000 cues (Maximum 2000 total cues) * Control Wheels : 4 (3 Panel Mounted Encoders, 1 Control Wheel) * Trackball : 38mm IP65 Panel Mounted Trackball * Power supply : Internal switched mode power supply * Mains inlet : via switched CEE22 connector * Supply voltage range : 100-240V, 47-63Hz * DMX Output : 4 x DMX512A opto isolated via 4 x XLR 5 fixed sockets, over-voltage protected * Ethernet protocols (RJ45 port, 100 Base T): Artnet (4 universes), Zero Wire DMX, LightConverse, Capture, WYSIWYG and PDA Remote * DMX Input: 1x DMX512 * Sound to Light input : Stereo ¼” Jack socket. 100mV – 10V * Monitor Output : 2 x XGA via standard 15 pin D connector * USB : 4 ports for connection of accessories or for storage * Data Storage : USB memory stick (included) * Desk lamp supply : 12V 5W. 1 x XLR 3 pin female.
