    Output protocols are distributed using ETCNet2 DMX Nodes or Net3 DMX/RDM Gateways. I/O Gateways and Show Control Gateways provide switch-closure functionality, MIDI and SMPTE time code.

    Cobalt Light Server is offered as a base controller with 5000 control channels and 4096 outputs (8 universes of DMX512A). A single control channel may control only intensity (dimmers) or it may control a DMX-controlled device (moving light, LED, media server, etc.).

    To increase the capacity of the Light Server, order additional 512-output upgrades.

    For example, to take the Light Server to its maximum configuration, order a Light Server and twenty-four (24) 512-output upgrades.

    4096 outputs + (24x512) = 16,384 outputs (32 universes of DMX512)

    Two universes are available at the Light Server via 5-Pin XLR and all universes may be distributed via Ethernet-based methods, including Net3 DMX/RDM Gateways, ETCNet2 DMX Nodes and/or ArtNet nodes (purchased separately).
