DMX component receives data over the network on one of three protocols:

  • Art-net (1, 2 or 3)
  • Ma-Net 2.9
  • Streaming ACN (sACN)

Each universe of data the Hippo is receiving is represented by an object in the protocols list. The DMX component is capable of receiving many universes at once from multiple protocols.

Each protocol has specific settings that is accessed from the settings cog.

GrandMA V2.9

  • Session ID

The Session for Hippotizer to listen too. An MA network can have many sessions; select the session based on which is used on the lighting desks.

  • Use Host Address

If enabled, the DMX component will expect data to come in on the same network port as the host (engine) is using.
If disabled, specify which adapter to use based on IP address.

  • Network Adapter

If not using the host address, select which adapter to use based on it’s IP address.


  • Select Art-net Interface

Determines which network card DMX will use to receive Art-net data. The default automatic will use Art-net data regardless of which network card it arrives on.
Alternatively, choose the IP address for the interface as desired.

  • Receive data from

In situations where there is a lot of Art-net traffic on the network going to multiple destinations, the data source IP can be specified. If present, the DMX component will only react to Art-net data from the listed sources.
