  1. Fundamentals of ETC Networking: Net3

  2. Where we came from… • Remember the days of Micro II, AMX, D192, K96, Avab, ECMux… DMX512 was the result • Then as Networking grew in the business industry, we created ETCNet…

  3. Evolution of ETCNet ETCNet2 (1996) • Still more or less proprietary • TCP/IP Standard • Twisted Pair/Fiber • Wired and Wireless Remote Focus Unit, Keyboard and Printer • 2 to 4 DMX Outputs or Inputs • 32,767 addresses or 64 universes • NCE Software • Video generated by the console • Remote Macros • 10/100Mbps – mostly 10Mbps ETCNet1 (1992) • Network was proprietary – No Standard existed • Thinnet/Thicknet/Fiber • Remotes the functionality of the console only • Remote Focus Unit, DWS, Keyboard and Printer • 3 DMX Outputs • 1536 addresses or 3 universes • Video generated by the console • 10Mbps (speed)

  4. Where we are going… • So we had ETCNet, ColorNet, ShowNet …and does anyone listen to one another? Now we have ACN

  5. What is ACN? ACN is the highway on which devices will drive/communicate • ESTA standards driven (like DMX) • Open-ended structure • Like XML in that it defines the structure, not the actual data (or vehicles on the highway) • Accommodates products not even dreamed of yet…

  6. What is ACN? ESTA Interoperability Profiles (EIP) • Provide the standards by which different manufacturer’s devices will work together • Examples of defined EIP standards: • IP address allocation (DHCP, local-link…) • Device discovery • Data streaming

  7. What is Net3? ETC network communication built on ACN standards • Net3 is ETC’s guarantee of • End-to-end functionality • Tested level of performance • “Better together” features • HTP and priorities in a similar manner to ETCNet2 • Super-set of ACN interoperability profiles and “better together” features required for ETC equipment

  8. Evolution of ETCNet Net3 (2007) • Open architecture based on ACN • TCP/IP and UDP Standards • Twisted Pair/Fiber • Wireless RFU and Radio RFU • 1 to 4 DMX/RDM Outputs or Inputs • 32,767 addresses or 64 universes • Net3 Configuration Software • Video generated by network device = unlimited video • Remote Contacts In and Out • MIDI / SMPTE • Power over Ethernet • 10/100/1000Mbps – mostly 100Mbps ETCNet2 (1996) • Still more or less proprietary • TCP/IP Standard • Twisted Pair/Fiber • Wired and Wireless Remote Focus Unit, Keyboard and Printer • 2 to 4 DMX Outputs/Inputs • 32,767 addresses or 64 universes • NCE Software • Video generated by the console • Remote Macros • 10/100Mbps – mostly 10Mbps

  9. A Basic Network Moving Lights Node Remote Video Printer Dimmer Rack Switch Consoles Node Node Remote Focus Units DMX Devices

  10. ETCNet2 Nodes ETCNet2 DMX Nodes ETCNet2 Video Nodes

  11. New Net3 Gateways Basically a node or interface… • Modular – DMX port connections • Power over Ethernet or external DC power supply • LCD screen for status and configuration

  12. More Net3 Gateways Net3 One-port Gateways Net3 Two-port Gateways Net3 I/O Gateways

  13. ETCNet2 Nodes ETC Network Equipment Congo Eos Unison CMEi CEM+ Net3 Gateways

  14. Sample System Layout

  15. Basic Network Theory+ Flexible Network Components= Innovative and Reliable Networked Systems
