  • ArtNet Configuration in Eos Software

    This support article outlines configuration options presented in the Eos Configuration Utility (ECU), or Shell. To output ArtNet, check the “Enabled” and “Default” boxes in the shell for ArtNet on the desired network port. For other configurations, please refer to the Eos Family Operations Manual’s patch chapter.

    Version 2.0 and Above

    In version 2.0, additional configuration options were added for Eos Family consoles using ArtNet. These include the broadcast mode as well as a universe offset.
    ArtNet Configuration

    Broadcast Modes

    • Limited Broadcast ArtNet data will be sent to the broadcast address of 255.255.255.255
    • Directed Broadcast ArtNet data will be sent to the subnet broadcast address. In a typical ETC network with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 and IP address of 10.101.X.X, this will be sent to 10.101.255.255.
    • Primary Art-Net The network port will be reconfigured to be in the ArtNet standard IP range 2.X.X.X, and will send level data to 2.255.255.255.
    • Secondary Art-Net The network port will be reconfigured to be in a secondary ArtNet standard IP range 10.X.X.X, and will send level data to 10.255.255.255

    ArtNet Start

    This setting maps an ArtNet universe to correspond to Eos’s universe 1.

    So, with an ArtNet Start of 0, Eos will send data from its universe 1 to ArtNet universe 0 (subnet 0).

    With an ArtNet Start of 1, Eos will send data from its universe 1 to ArtNet universe 1 (subnet 0).

    Before Version 2.0

    Before version 2.0, all ArtNet data was sent as if the “Directed Broadcast” mode was selected. No broadcast mode options were available.
    Eos universe 1 was statically mapped to ArtNet universe 0. Thus, Eos universe 2 was sent on ArtNet universe 1, Eos universe 3 on ArtNet 2, and so on…
