ESTA Plugfest round-table goes public
Tuesday, 10 July 2018
USA - The ESTA Control Protocols Plugfest organizers announced that a live, informal round-table discussion will be made available to the public via a free WebEx video conference. A discussion of sACN Universe Synchronization will be broadcast live on Sunday 22 July from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 P.M., CDT.
The Universe Synchronization feature was recently added to ESTA’s ANSI E1.31, Lightweight streaming protocol for transport of DMX512 using ACN standard. Universe Sync allows the output of multiple universes of DMX512 data coming from a sACN controller to be synchronized together. This eliminates issues such as image tearing and out of sync strobes within arrays of LED fixtures across multiple universes.
This lively, educational discussion will illustrate the challenges solved by Universe Sync as well as explain how it works from both a user perspective and within the protocol itself. The recommended “best practices” approach in implementation for developers will also be discussed.
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and obtain answers from the CPWG subject matter members that authored this standard.
Registration for this round-table may be made by sending an email to
This roundtable is being held in conjunction with the ESTA Control Protocols Plugfest, the event where manufacturers and developers test their lighting products for network interoperability, which is scheduled to take place from 20-23 July at the D/FW Marriott Solana in Westlake, Texas. Both ESTA and non-ESTA members are welcome to attend the 16th version of this event.
