Elation Professional has embarked on a new chapter in its evolution with launch of Obsidian Control Systems, an accessible line of advanced yet intuitive lighting control products.
Following completion in late March of the acquisition of the M-Series range of entertainment lighting controllers from Harman Professional Solutions, Elation Professional received valuable feedback from the thousands of M-Series users worldwide.
“Based on this feedback, we sought to create a dedicated company and brand focus for the continued development and evolution of the product series,” states Elation Sales & Marketing Director Eric Loader. “The Obsidian development will continue to be focused on stable and compatible software and hardware for all existing M-Series products”
Obsidian lighting control software and hardware is designed and maintained by lighting professionals so that professionals can excel at the highest level. It is easy to use and accessible to every level of user, whether a novice programmer or a designer at the highest level. “Our pillars are that we believe in innovating together to create intuitive products that are both forward thinking and reliable,” Loader continued.
“We asked ourselves what it would look like to remove creative and financial obstacles so that designers and programmers can go beyond where they have before, and so that the next generation can be taught and encouraged. By innovating together, we’re creating products that are focused on the user. We have the user in mind and they can always speak directly to our innovative team with feedback.”
Obsidian products are designed by an international team of lighting professionals with over 25 years of industry experience. In fact, Obsidian’s core development team, located in the Elation European office located in The Netherlands, goes all the way back to 1992 with the award-winning CASE control console series, followed by the MAXXYZ control console and MAXEDIA media servers, the M-Series platform and now the dawn of a new evolution of lighting control systems.
