ArtNet and Streaming-ACN are DMX control protocols that work over TCP/IP. Most newer consoles and advanced lighting equipment are using these protocols to ensure control reliability. This will reduce the amount of DMX cable and equipment that is required and gives the technician more efficient options for managing the control network.RDM (Remote Device Management) allows compatible devices to communicate over existing DMX equipment to provide two-way communications for configuration, monitoring and system setup. RDM will allow the programmer to discover, configure, and monitor any RDM-enabled device from the lighting console. Much of our newer equipment is RDM compatible and this protocol will streamline the rigging and troubleshooting process.
