Shownet Artnet

Post by TerryHynes » Tue Feb 12, 2008 3:29 pm

Can the console output Shownet and Artnet simultaneously? We have a projector that uses Artnet. Our lighting system uses Shownet. Can I configure the console to have one universe going to Artnet and 3 universes going to Shownet? Can this all go down the same pipe?

Yes, Yes, and Yes.

You can have any of the Ethernet protocols running simultaneously - just enable them in the Patch screen.

If the universes overlap then they will be copied across all of the protocols to all of the nodes.

As for the same pipe, everything should work great- but be cautious of running more than 15 universes on a network that has 10 MBit devices. 4 or 5 universes will be no big deal!
