Node Plus provides a powerful and convenient interface between Vx76 or Art-Net compatible control consoles, pixel mapping from media servers, and subsequent control equipment which require either Art-Net or DMX512 control signals. The unit accepts high level commands in either Vx76 or Art-Net protocol and converts the data into six universes of DMX512.
The Node Plus unit operates in one of two primary modes: Virtuoso/Vx76 Mode or Series 400™ Mode. The operating mode is automatically configured by the unit according to the input signal type. In Virtuoso/Vx76 Mode, the unit will accept Virtuoso protocol and generate both Art-Net and DMX512 outputs. In Series 400 Mode, the unit will accept Art-Net protocol and convert it to DMX512.
The Node Plus includes a menu display for configuring the unit and checking system status. The menu system is easily navigated using a joystick controller, allowing configuration of the Virtuoso/Vx76 address, configuration of DoE outputs in Series 400 Mode, real-time monitoring of DMX512 data on each output, display of network error information, and display of current software version.
