New firmware 2.0:
Streaming ACN!

 

The MADRIX LUNA reliably distributes DMX512 data over long or short distances using Ethernet network or USB. Its sync mode makes sure that lighting effects look their best on the LEDs.

 

Art-Net / Streaming ACN / USB
Art-Net or Streaming ACN data is directly converted to DMX512. Optimize and decentralize cabling to cover any distance to the device using Ethernet network.

4/8/16 DMX-OUT + 1 DMX-IN
4, 8, or 16 XLR ports (5-pin, female) distribute the equal number of DMX universes per unit. 1 XLR port (5-pin, male) can be used for DMX input. Simply use several units at the same time for larger projects.

 

Any small or large project greatly benefits from dependable data distribution and efficient operation. Use any compatible software or hardware controller. In addition, simply connect to MADRIX 5 over USB.

Sync Mode
MADRIX 5 and MADRIX hardware allow you to fully synchronize Art-Net data for all output ports and even across multiple devices to get an optimal image on the LEDs without visual interruptions.

 

Easy Configuration
MADRIX LUNA offers powerful features, especially in combination with MADRIX 5. Take full advantage of pixel mapping and voxel mapping. The installation of the device is still quick and easy.

3rd-Party Controllers
MADRIX LUNA complies with the official protocol specifications and can be used as a regular node with your other consoles, controllers, or software solutions.

 

Quality Design
Devices are built 19″ x 1U or 19″ x 2U. They feature a fanless, noiseless, low-energy design, a durable metal case, and NEUTRIK plugs. 2 premounted brackets make rack mounting possible. 5 indicators quickly show the status of a device.

Invaluable Features
The device is ready within seconds after startup. HTP merging is automatically available for two Ethernet sources. Its firmware is upgradable for future enhancements. Access and change specific device settings using the built-in web configuration page.

Did You Know?
As a receiving unit, the 100 MBit/s RJ45 Ethernet connection is more than enough. In our FAQs and especially for large projects, we recommend to use Art-Net and 1 GBit/s for the network switch and network card. For the sender of all the data, the higher bandwidth is required. Often, Art-Net data is sent in broadcast mode where all receivers get all the data. With MADRIX 5 however, we also support unicast mode to just sent the required data to each single unit to save bandwidth. In all cases, MADRIX LUNA provides the performance you need.
