X-keys and ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls) have a long and happy relationship. ETC users program key combinations in to the X-keys and use these to trigger functions in various ETC programs like Eos, Ion, and Nomad.

“XK-60 is a lifesaver under the time crunch of outdoor theater. Anyone who programs from a PC based console needs the keys.”
– Wade Stine, Perception Light and Sound
