The Martin Ether2DMX allows users to increase the number of Maxxyz DMX universes and/or place DMX universes remotely on any TCP/IP Ethernet network. The box extends the number of universes by four, making it possible to reach a maximum of 32 universes. Your DMX universes can be placed at a remote location, connected to the Maxxyz by a single Ethernet line (RJ45).
The box can also extend the number of DMX inputs or have DMX inputs placed at a remote location. It can be used as an output device for the upcoming Maxxyz PC or as an input device for Martin ShowDesigner (MSD). The Ether2DMX box uses the Artnet protocol and can therefore be used to interface with any third party product that can interface with Artnet. When using additional Ether2DMX routers, a switch must be employed to split up the Ethernet connection. A rack mount RJ45 Neutrix switch will be available soon, but any normal Ethernet switch can be used. Neutrix RJ45 cables will also be available soon, but any RJ45 cat 5 can be used to interconnect the Ether2DMX router with the Maxxyz or a computer.
