With usage of multiple LED fixtures and video mapping, many occasions require thousands of DMX channels. It's important to have fast DMX response and proper network load management. AutoBahn™ 8 not only provides instant response, but also a lower network load. It can allow you to increase the number of DMX universes and easily place DMX universes remotely on any TCP/IP Ethernet network. It can also be used as a DMX merger, DMX splitter, or backup device.
It features 1x RJ45 Neutrik™ EtherCON® 10/100M Ethernet LAN port with auto MDI/MDI-X (universal cable recognition), which eliminates the need of separate MDI and MDI-X ports, selector switches, or special crossover cables. It also has 2 DMX inputs which can be set as "input" or "disabled" status. You can assign each input to a specific "Universe" within the range of 0.0 - F.F. When the DMX port is set as "input", the port mode can be set as "normal" or "backup".
