I am trying to figure out how to control a Panasonic PT-RW930 through art-net. I want to be able to control the light output so that instead of a 0 count hard shutter, I can fade the actual light output. Under Art-Net Setup in the projector, I set the Net and Subnet as 0, set the Start Address as 1, and put each projector in their own universe. Under watchout, I created a DMX-512 output with the universe of each projector, and set the channel as 6 since the settings in the projector say that channel 6 is Light Output. But it doesn't seem to be working. I don't have a good understanding of DMX or addresses, so if anyone could offer any wisdom, it would be much appreciated!

We have a basic but very useful Artnet monitor available here:


The file to run using the instructions on that page (ArtNet-Monitor.jar) is located in the dist directory.  This will let you verify that WATCHOUT is outputting the exected Artnet data on the expected universe and channel.

Artnet addressing can be a bit confusing – especially related to the universe numbering schem, which sometimes is 1-based and sometimes 0-based. So trying one universe up/down can help figuring this out.

Hello Trnhnnh,

For the projector to execute your DMX orders, you also need to add an output universe 2 channel 7 and the projector only execute your commands if this output is above 50% if I remember correctly.

Hi all, thanks for your responses so far. I am online and I go an artnet monitor. I added the output universe and channel. I can see from my other computer that the production computer is outputting data from universe 2, channel 7, but if I'm reading the artnet monitor correctly,the data doesn't seem to be reaching the projectors. 

Is it possible it's the IP address? I currently have everything on a 10.101.100.x on subnet mask Under the projector settings, it had "Art-Net SETUP" and I set it to ON(MANUAL) so it would follow the IP address of the projector under Network setup. When I had it set to ON(10.x.x.x) or ON(2.x.x.x), I couldn't connect to the web control.
