The Data Network is the ‘everything else’ connection.

What should be on the Data Network?

  • DMX Control of HIppotizer over ArtNet
  • Ma-Net
  • CITP
  • Remote Management
  • TCP or other remote control protocols
  • Internet connections
  • Pixelmapper output
  • Remote wake-up / magic packets

Recommendations and best practice

  • ArtNet and Pixelmapper can generate high volumes of Multicast and Broadcast traffic; switches that are capable of handling this is important in larger setups.
  • Large pixel-mapping projects should try to use sACN instead of ArtNet due to better traffic handling.
  • If connecting to the internet, ensure there is firewall protecting the network
