This is a protocol convertor I am developing to take ArtNet or DMX and convert it into Telnet commands to control a Barco E2. I have also added RS422 output so that a Leitch compatible router/matrix can be controlled also. I will be using it with a Black Magic 40×40 SDI Videohub. The basic idea is that the lighting desk and control presets and transitions on the E2 and make routes to video sources and destinations. This means some better integration can be made between systems that are already controlling media servers etc from a lighting system.
The box has a main and a backup system in it – or 2 separated systems that could be used independently. The is no power supply redundancy but that could be included simply.
