ADB Mentor Mentor Data Sheet
[PDF: 1,113kB]
Mentor XT Data Sheet
[PDF: 473kB]

Mentor is available in 120, 240, 360 or 512 control channels; Mentor/XT is available in 512, 1024, or 2048 control channels. Both consoles offer 2 universes (1024 DMX output addresses) of direct DMX512 output, plus up to 16 universes (8192 addresses) via Ethernet.

Mentor and Mentor/XT are all-in-one, portable systems, ideal for touring or for applications where the lighting desk is frequently moved. The desk does not require an external monitor, as all output information and other data is displayed via the on-board touch-screen. SVGA monitor output(s) are provided, should an external monitor be preferred.
