Hey guys I am setting up an LED house lighting system for a church. I have the units (DMX, they will be divided into about 15 "groups" for area control), but in thinking about control I am in a bit of a quandary.
The currently have a traditional house light system which goes...
Unit -> Dimmer -> Controller (DMX console and wall panels)
Well, with my LED setup it has to go....
Unit -> Dimmer (DMX controller and wall panels)
You see my problem? Most wall panels I know speak some proprietary language directly to dimmers whether the console is on or not.
Anyone know of a system where the wall panels can send out DMX? I would prefer it if they would work with the console off, but if the console has to stay on that could work too.
They insist on having the panel controls because of the size of the room, it would take a few minutes and present several trip hazards to get to the board in the dark.
