Attendees at The Entertainment Technology Show - LDI2003 will be able to see prototype devices networked with draft versions of the control protocols E1.11 (DMX512-A), E1.17 (ACN), and E1.20 (RDM) at the ESTA Interconnectivity Pavilion in Booth 121.

These control protocols are being developed by the Control Protocols Working Group, part of ESTA's Technical Standards Program, and are designed to take us into the next generation of self-configuring and almost limitlessly extensible lighting control networks. Equipment from a variety of manufacturers will be shown communicating bidirectionally with equipment from other manufacturers, demonstrating the progress that has been made in developing these protocols and the benefits of voluntary, consensus standards developed in ESTA's open, industry forum.

The Entertainment Technology Show — LDI2003 takes place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The exhibit floor hours are 10:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. on Friday, November 21 and Saturday, November 22, and from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 23.
