USB-DMX dongle

A piece of hardware allowing a PC (or in rare cases) Mac to output DMX to control lighting. Probably the least expensive quality product is the DMX USB Pro, which lists for USD 151. Other popular solutions are HES/Barco HogIII widget and MA Lighting's 2Port Node.

To date, none of the tradtional lighting manufacturers (ETC, Strand, Leviton) have profferred a solution, as they are in the business of providing dedicated hardware, not free or low-cost software on a PC.

While most agree that there is no substitute for a dedicated control surface, a PC solution may be appropriate in some situations.
