Artistic Licence (UK) Ltd has released a new revision of the Art-Net Ethernet protocol. Art-Net is a TCP/IP protocol that provides a mechanism for transferring DMX512, triggering and console video monitor data over 10BaseT Ethernet cable. The Artistic Licence product DMX-Hub implements the Art-Net Protocol and provides input and output for four universes of DMX512. DMX-Hub can be used as a peripheral to a lighting console that outputs Art-Net or multiple units can be used to transfer DMX512 over Ethernet. In conjunction with the revised protocol, Artistic Licence has also released Art-Net View' which, as the name suggests is a test and analysis program for Art-Net.
