ETC Lighting Control Hire

Primarily for my regular programming work I own a large selection of parts to make up a variety of ETC Nomad systems. Running the full EOS software as found on Ion/Gio/Eos desks I will happily hire out a system tailored to your budget and requirements.


If you don't see what you need feel free to get in touch as I may still be able to help. The prices below are for reference, but I am willing to discuss, particularly when hiring full systems and for longer periods of time.

Please note that as I am often in production or out of the country it is best to give as much notice as possible so I can try and arrange availability. For quick response it is best to get in touch by email, as I often don't have phone or voicemail access when abroad.

I can ship many items at cost for you to ship back, but not all items (Monitors especially) can be shipped for short term hires due to damage risk from shipping. Generally I wont ship an order for under £40 as the time required to pack and ship as well as making sure i can receive the return is not worth the time effort. If you want to collect and drop off thats fine as long as i'm in the area, and I can also sometimes personally drop off and pickup within central and SE London.
