    Default LOR and Ethernet

    Dan made this post on the LOR forum earlier today:

    We will have an Ethernet solution in place next year. We are still investigating the best way(s) to go.

    Artnet has been the way to go however E1.31 is starting to gain a little popularity.

    One way or another, we will have both LOR and DMX on Ethernet and will be supplying inexpensive adapters/nodes.

    Interesting to say the least.

    A "little popularity"? This is year one for me and _I_ know what it is... (with props to Mark and Dan from the convention...)

    Too funny...

    Ok, and it will be released along with the LOR flood. LOR is headed for trouble. I am now wondering with the current future in this hobby whether I will be stuck with AC controllers that I wont be able to use or sell. I have a couple dozen or so. I wholeheartedly believe that decentralized possibly embedded controllers that are DC voltage based are in our near future.

    I guess I can use them to turn on and off the toaster or something.

    You'll be able to sell them for commercial displays. Maybe...

    Maybe they're going to also try PoE? That could also prove interesting!! (PoE = Power over Ethernet)

    LOR S2 now supports 16 networks, up from 4. Announced with ver 2.9.0. ver 2.9.4 is now close to coming out of Beta and is the release candiate.

    The Ethernet solution is coming.

    The need for the IDMX 1000 is going away.

    Some new LOR products won't even need a separate Cat5 cable, since the commands will be sent over the powerline to the controller as announced here along with the RGB pixel strings.

    A new visualizer is coming.

    From tidbits I've heard hear and there, LOR S3 will blow away the competition.

    (Personally, I'm excited about Prancer for sequencing - if it is released next year, currently it is in Alpha2), although Prancer would have to export it's files to LOR for running the show since it will not have show control capability.)

    Now I'm sorry I wasted money buying the bloated LSP software.

    I now know what I will be spending my 2011 Christmas lighting budget on as well as what I'll be buying myself for my "early" Christmas presents to myself next year.

    I will believe it when I see it. I spent years on several development teams. Saying and doing are different things. Dan Baldwin will not go open source on this and his products will continue to lag behind.

    LOR is in trouble. S2 was a let down. I am sorry I didn't convert to LSP earlier.
