Sundrax Electronics, UK-based manufacturer of professional equipment for stage lighting networking and data processing, announced a release of new GigaJet PRO: multifunctional rack mounted DMX-Ethernet node / media converter with fibre optic link and gigabit switch.
GigaJet transmits DMX/ArtNet/sACN/KiNet/RTTrPL streams in Gigabit Ethernet and fibre optic networks. Fibre optic increases maximum length of direct connection between devices up to 2000 metres (using multimode SFP modules), or up to 10 km (using single mode SFP modules). The device also acts as 5-port Ethernet switch working in 10/100/1000BASE-TX networks.
In addition to providing interface between modern stage lighting software and DMX lighting, GigaJet also would be useful to convert mapped video content into DMX streams, or real time control of video projectors and laser units supporting ArtNet or sACN from DMX console.
