    Default EthConGateway

    Boy... Ed Bryson is making some people go over the edge.

    I'm slated to get my 2 DR-4's next week.

    Ed's stuff is cool. I have the "build it yourself" version, with 8 slave outputs, and no such fancy case.

    However, everyone needs to realize that they have to be using software that can put out E1.31 or ACN (i.e. DMX over Ethernet) to take advantage of this hardware. For now, that's LSP or Vixen or some very expensive commercial packages. Hadn't heard anything about LOR adding this kind of support.

    But this is the type of thing that will give you the ability to start driving pixels. Another word of caution - be aware that a DR4, with 4 slave outputs, will only be able to drive 4*170 individually controllable RGB pixels. That's 680 pixels, since each pixel takes 3 channels, and the limit on each slave is 512 channels. Not trying to be pessimistic, just full disclosure.

    But it's getting very exciting what we will be able to do!

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    Well, I have two new ones in a box.

    I guess I have to wait for the season to end before playing.
