Data & networking questions

Recommended Posts

We're creating a range of training resources covering data distribution and networking - the way your lighting console talks to your rig.

If you have questions, or suggestions of topics, please let us know!

For example:

  • Why is an audio XLR and a DMX cable different?
  • Is it true that RDM causes lights to flicker?
  • What's the difference between Art-Net and sACN?
  • How do subnet masks work?

"Is it true that RDM causes lights to flicker?"

You need to include your handy tip which is to address problematic fixtures above a certain address.

6/June/2020 Updating with info from the latest Z88 video series (DMX & RDM):

*If* RDM start code interpretation is the issue with the fixture's DMX implementation:

  • Address the fixture above DMX address 32 (90% chance of solving issue)
  • Address the fixture above DMX address 257 (should definately solve the issue)

Jon also covers it hear on the Forum. I can never remember the upper number, so let's write these down everywhere!
