CITP

CITP is a lighting protocol which sends DMX data over Ethernet. The protocol allows for multiple DMX universes to be sent over a single Ethernet cable, and has been designed specifically for communication between lighting consoles, visualisers and media servers.

If using Capture visualisation software, we recommend using the CITP protocol.

Setupuniversescitp

Within the CITP panel, you can choose to enable CITP. Once enabled, you will be able to configure the CITP protocol. By default, CITP universes will be mapped 0:1 with Desk Universes.

Resetcitp

If you have changed the CITP settings per Desk Universe, you can choose to “Reset to defaults”. This will prompt you to start the Universe numbering from either CITP Universe 0 or CITP Universe 1. If using Capture visualisation software, Start at CITP Universe 0.

IP Address

The IP address options will allow you to configure your CITP network settings. You can choose between using a DHCP address, or a static IP address.

For information on network settings, see the Networking chapter.

Capture

Selection

When using CITP to communicate with Capture visualisation software, as well as DMX information being sent over Ethernet from ZerOS to Capture, selection information is sent too. Selected fixtures are then indicated in Capture with the fixtures selecting in red.

External Level Set

When using CITP to communicate with Capture visualisation software, as well as ZerOS sending DMX information to Capture, Capture can send DMX information back to ZerOS. This allows you to use the fixture controls in Capture to control your fixtures, which you can then record as a cue in ZerOS. You will see the parameter values live updating in ZerOS, and "External Level Set" will be displayed in the command line, as ZerOS receives the updates from Capture.
