Hi Edward,

 

thanks for this it's exactly what I'm after.

 

Can this be used from a laptop should the desk fail?

Hi Simon,

Yes this can be connected to a laptop, to allow your PC to become a standalone lighting controller. To do so you would need to be running PhantomZerOS on the laptop, with a Phantom Unlock dongle...

Hi Simon,

Ideally it needs to be on its own dedicated network.

As a side note, FLX shouldn't be connected to the Internet.

Why is this? I have a technical network set up which enables me to talk to both my lighting and sound desks but also lets me receive emails and calls as there is no mobile coverage on the edge of a cliff.

Some of the networking protocols are bandwidth-heavy and include limitations that are acceptable due to ZerOS being designed for use on a dedicated lighting network.

Eaton have strict Cyber Security requirements for products designed to live online. ZerOS is not one of these products.
