ETC HedgeHog 4X


Hog consoles pioneered the world of large-scale automated lighting control. They have enduring loyalty from programmers worldwide. The Hog 4 was built around the way you work, which leads to legendary ease of use. Its tools are designed for programming efficiency, which means even advanced features like pixel-mapping and plot layout are optimized for programming speed.


HedgeHog 4X consoles might be small but they pack a serious punch! Built for travel, these consoles are compact and lightweight – perfect for new users and smaller venues. School theatres, nightclubs, corporate events, medium-scale rental events and houses of worship are the HedgeHog 4X’s natural habitats. These consoles share the same programming layout and capability as their larger brothers, and happily load show files from any console in the range.

The HedgeHog 4X sports an internal 12.1” multi-touch monitor, ten faders, and four encoder wheels. The desk has full networking capabilities and 6 Universe output capacity of the box, and supports two external DP monitors.


Just Right – And Then Some.

With its built-in 12” touchscreen, HedgeHog 4X is out of the case and ready to rock. Or, add a couple of external touchscreens to grow your programming surface easily and affordably.


The Ins and Outs

With six universes of onboard processing, two local DMX outputs (expandable with Widgets or Gateways), two external touchscreen connections, USB and HogNet / FixtureNet ports, just plug in and start working. Need SMPTE or MIDI? There’s a Widget for that, too.
