ETC’s first PC-based lighting control system, PC Congo, is designed for use as a backup or client to other Congo® desks as well as a portable playback system for situations where you can’t take your console with you. With the graphic displays of a Congo board, PC Congo is a familiar operating environment. PC Congo handles conventional and moving lights, media servers, and LEDs with preset operation. Full featured, it also offers track editing and network capabilities.
