1-Universe, DIN-rail-mountable solution for the recording, triggering, and activation of not only light shows but video, non-lighting events, and much more.



SKU: 70095

DIN-rail-mountable DMX recorder + smart light show controller.

ENTTEC’s S-PLAY NANO is a robust and compact show recorder and playback controller that streamlines your light show by seamlessly integrating external hardware, enabling you to achieve professional lighting control with ease.

S-PLAY NANO generates a maximum of 4 light Static/Dynamic/Effect Cues by recording one complete Universe via DMX port live recording. Alternatively, you have the option to use the onboard pixel effects generator – an easy-to-use tool for creating gradient Effect Cues in just a matter of minutes.

The S-PLAY NANO gives you the ability to fully integrate external devices into your installation – and not just light fixtures. Receive triggers from buttons, switches or sensors to automate 3rd party devices or machinery using contact closures, UDP or OSC.

Using the S-PLAY NANO’s handy web browser interface, simply drag and drop within the timeline to design up to four playlists using created Cues, Events and Triggers as building blocks. Control the priority, fade times, number of play counts, and master intensities to tweak your playlists.

Play back your program on power up with preset loop times, or choose to trigger the playlists with external triggers in a different fashion to play back up to four playlists simultaneously overlapping and blending with each other, with different groups and priorities.

Precision engineered + proudly made in Australia.
