Control Device - Use ArtNet Device as controller

An artnet Control Device Use any external controller in MIDI or OSC, DMX and ArtNet Read More allow to send or receive DMX messages over network via the Art-Net protocol (DMX over ethernet).
when using fixture, adding "unicast" output will increase your performance over broadcasting on all the network
for a Panasonic VP you need to unicast without partial packet


  • Identifier (Socket Device Identifier) : Identifies the Art-Net device
    • Receive (On/off option) : Activate Art-Net packet reception
    • Local Input (Local Network Address) : Local network address of the socket device identifier reception
    • Reuse Local Port (On/off option) : Allow local reception port reusing to let multiple software listening on it
    • Send (On/off option) : Activate Art-Net packet emission
    • Remote Output (Network Address) : Remote network address of the socket device identifier emission
    • Broadcast (On/off option) : Toggle emission broadcast mode (needs special broadcast IP like or subnet broadcast like
  • Filter (Universe Filter) : Filter the input messages according to subnet and universe range to avoid flooding
    • Min Ip (Text) : Min client IPv4 address of the universe filter
    • Max Ip (Text) : Max client IPv4 address of the universe filter
    • Min Port (Network Port) : Min client UDP Port of the universe filter
    • Max Port (Network Port) : Max client UDP Port of the universe filter
    • Min Universe (Universe Selector) : Minimum universe value to accept
    • Max Universe (Universe Selector) : Maximum universe value to accept
  • Local Start (Universe Selector) : Custom Offset applyed on the Art-Net channels
  • Time Base (Video Time Base) : Frequency of sending messages. If set to null, message are sent as soon as output controller changes. (Warning, this can flood target devices when framerate is high)
  • Send Sync Packed (On/off option) : Synchronise the display of the previous DMX message through the differents devices. May create latency with old materials.
  • Allow Partial DMXPacket (On/off option) : Allow partial DMX packets
  • Unicast Outputs (List of Universes Unicast Outputs) : Allow you to send DMX message through specific Network/Universe/channels. Overwrite the filter
