DMX512 is the most commonly used lighting control protocol with roots in simple theatrical light dimming. These days almost any lighting or stage effect equipment may be controlled using DMX512 (with explicit exclusion of anything involving potentially dangerous operations such as pyrotechnics) including moving lights, LED screens, fog machines and laser displays.
The DMXking ultraDMX unit is an entry level device designed for use with computer based show control software. It replaces an entire lighting console allowing the user to perform sophisticated shows with little more than a laptop. There are many free and commercial software packages available and by selecting the Enttec USB Pro as your DMX device compatibility is guaranteed. Some software manufacturers have added support for DMXking interfaces so select this option where possible as additional features will be added in future firmware releases.
