  5. Emergency Stop - Once connected to a Showstopper 3 Base or Hub, indicator lights show when your system is ready to go and a mushroom button gives you quick stopping authority over all automation.

  1. Network - The Stage Manager comes equipped with 2 EtherCON ports

  2. Showstopper Accessory - Connect the Stage Manager to the Emergency Stop system for complete control.

  3. Integrated Keyboard - When the touchscreen just won’t cut it, quickly pull out the all-in-one keyboard.
