I have the Nomad and gadget but where the tech table is there is only an ethernet port. Can I use an adapter to connect the gadget to the network? I am not allowed to move the EOS out of the light booth to tech the show, so I was hoping to just program it from my laptop. This is the adapter I am looking at.
you want to connect your nomad at the tech table to the eos in the booth? this is done by ethernet. nomad computer - ethernet cable - ethernet port - eos at lighting booth.
So are you saying that I go directly from my computer to the ethernet port. No gadget needed? That seems too easy, but awesome!
correct! going through the gadget you will only hvae dmx level information, eos needs a lot more to communicate between master and client. and you will need the ETCnomad dongle, but if you have a gadget i assume you have a dongle as well.
I have the dongle but have only ever used it with the gadget. I'm excited to try this! Thank you again!!
to make multiconsole work, you will need the following settings:
- same eos software version for console and client- same fixture library version for console and client- same language setting in Eos for console and client- IP adress in same subnet for for console and client- multiconsole activated in shell>network for console and client- deactivate wifi for nomad, and check in shell>network that you're using the correct network card in your computer- if using a different user for console than on client, make sure to map the main cuelist to the master fader pair
