Light Color Array to ArtNet

Sends a color-array flow to ArtNet universes.

Typically, it can be used in conjunction with video-to-color-array module to display a video on a led matrix.

Each universe is limited to 512 channels so you with RGB pixels you can only have 170 pixels per universe. This module will send several ArtNet/DMX/sACN frames by incrementing the universe by each bloc of 512 channels.

Settings

on

Activates or deactivates the module.

plot num

Target Plot number of output.

color array

Color array flow to send.

universe base

Base ArtNet universe where the array is sent.

nb pix per universe

Sets the maximum number of pixels in the universe. Can be used to limit the number of pixels sent to the universe.

start channel

Defines the first DMX channel filled. By default the value is 1 (the first DMX channel of the universe).

pixel type

Determines how each color value is converted to ArtNet DMX.
