We're often asked for advice on what to consider when designing a new lighting network, or how to evaluate an existing one.  

The following documents were used for a presentation on lighting networks at the Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology conference held in Edmonton Canada, in August 2009.  The first is a slide presentation cover DMX, RDM, ACN and some current issues when troubleshooting an Ethernet lighting system.  The second is a list of current standards, term definitions and a list of some helpful programmes.

Please feel free to use the information any way that best suits your needs.   But if you do, please acknowledge us.
