DMX and Art-Net
Aug 22 2014 | 7:01 pm
I am very interested in DMX and the new technologies surrounding DMX. I have a couple of questions and was wondering if I could get some advice. Firstly I am curious about Art-Net vs. sACN. Which one is better and which one is the one to use (i.e. what are the differences)? It seems to me like Art-Net is in more use even though sACN is supposed to be the succesor...Is this correct?
Also, am I correct in my understanding that ACN (real ACN) is supposed to be the succesor to DMX, with many benefits?
For Art-Net devices, many, such as the ENTTEC ODE just have an Ethernet port for their input. I am assuming I can just plug an ethernet cable from my computer to the ODE device and it will work, but, if I wanted to also use wired internet on the computer, I would plug my computer AND the ODE into a router, correct?
