Emulation Control Software


You can use Emulation on your preferred platform; it is available on Mac OS X and Windows XP, Vista & Windows 7, 8, 10.
DMX512A + Art-Net:
Emulation software is shipped with a USB to DMX interface. The interface sends out 512 channels through a ESD protected DMX512-A port. Once the hardware interface is plugged in your computer the DMX data is duplicated over Art-Net. This is also useful for connecting to 3rd party visualizers.
The Cuelist system in Emulation, used for programming light sequences, is analog to the systems used on larger lighting consoles. It features separate Delay, Fade in & Fade out timing and comes with a shape generator and programmer window.
Emulation uses the concept of sub-fixtures. This means that some fixtures consist of multiple sub-fixtures, like a 10-channel dimmer rack is - in our terms - just one fixtures with 10 sub-fixtures. This also works for LED fixtures with multiple segments/pixels. In this manner the maximum of 48 will not be reached that quickly (you can add 48 x 10 = 480 dimmer channels). The reason behind the concept of sub-fixtures is that it makes patching easier; you only add the physical fixtures to your patch and you don’t have to worry about setting starting addresses per dimmer channel, or worse, per LED segment.
