Number of DMX universes


Recommended Posts

In theory 256 universes, BUT DMX is constantly sending quite a bit of data, not only for those channels which change. It constantly updates the status of all channels  and when using 256 universes with 512ch. each you can easiyl see that this would bring your network to a stand still.

You can record one universe at a time. You can also program DMX cues inside WATCHOUT but usually it is more convenient to use a software or hardware meant to control lighting equipment. As stated above, you can send DMX into 256 universes with the limitations described above.

Usually you would use WATCHOUT to program a couple of lamps or lighting circuits while you'd use different hardware and software and probably a separated network for more complex projects.
