Definitely needing some help. The theatre I work @ is finally getting led fixtures and moving lights. All of which are Chauvet, did a ton of reading got that all figured out. We are also ordering a new console & will have plenty of universes of dmx for everything. So far when we have had rental movers I never needed more then 4 universes which luckily our current console has 4 dmx ports on the back. I know in order to be able to use all of the universes in the new console we will have to switch over to an ethernet port. We are having a few CAT 5 lines run for lighting and audio. I've searched networking dmx and I'm pretty sure I need a "dmx networking book for dummies" !! Chauvet NET-X II sounds like it could work if we got 2 and placed 1 downstage & 1 upstage for a total of 16 universes if I could understand how/where I get ip address and subnet mask info to program the outputs to a set universe #. Then theres the ETC dmx nodes and gateway. Awesome put a node on the end of a pipe says I can program each 1 to a separate universe. Umm ok now I feel like I'm in wayyyy over head. I just don't want to screw up and not get everything needed. If we go the Chauvet NET-X II route other then those & cable is there anything else we need? I know the ETC nodes needs a gateway but what kind & by who? Does it have to be ETC in order for the nodes to work? Any & all help is greatly appreciated.
