Using iDMX1000 as a DMX to LOR interface


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a LOR board that does not natively accept DMX. I was planning on using the iDMX1000 as an interface between a DMX control board and my LOR. Would this work the way i want? or does the iDMX1000 ONLY convert LOR protocol to DMX, and not DMX to LOR?

 

Thanks.

Another option is to use a second network just for the LOR controller, provided whatever software you are using would support it. If you're using the LOR Showtime software, it's definitely doable.

Why not just use it on the LOR network and keep things simple?

The reason i need this is because I would like to use it in a live situation. I have a DMX control board that is normally used on Large scale dimmer paks. I wanted to incorporate this controller into my DMX arsenal. I guess that's what I get for not doing more research, I just thought that ALL LOR's accepted DMX.

 

If I understand your question, the iDMX1000 converts the LOR protocol to DMX; I don't think you can go the other way with it.

And yes, you would be correct.

Not sure I fully understand what you mean. Care to elaborate?
