Supported DMX Dongle Devices That Will Work With Venue Magic Show Control
Venue Magic – VM-USBDMX-01
This interface was developed by Entertainment Sciences Group, Inc. to be sold as an option with the VenueMagic Show Control Software. It will control 512 DMX channels (1 universe) and is functionally equivalent to the ENTTEC Open DMX USB. Works for DMX output only (no input). For more information, click here.(Supported by all editions of VenueMagic)
ENTTEC Open DMX USB
Manufactured by ENTTEC (www.enttec.com), this low-priced DMX interface will control 512 DMX channels. It has proven to be very reliable when used with the VenueMagic software. It has no DMX input capability when used with VenueMagic. The Open DMX USB will appear as “USB Serial” or “FT232 USB UART” device in the VenueMagic device setup. The Open DMX Driver is included with VenueMagic installation.(Supported by Classic, DMX+AV and SC+ editions only)
ENTTEC DMX USB Pro & USB Pro 2
Popular across Europe (www.dmx4all.de). DMX4ALL supports 512 channels of DMX output (no input). DMX4ALL may appear twice in the VenueMagic device setup window, as “DMX4ALL” and as “USB Serial” (or something similar). Select the DMX4ALL device for it to work properly. Also, enabling the DMX4ALL in the Supported Devices window will slow down device initialization (which occurs at VenueMagic startup and when changes are made in the Setup Devices window) if there are multiple USB-Serial devices plugged into your computer.
VELLEMAN K8062 or VM116
The Velleman interface (www.vellemanusa.com) provides 512 channels of DMX output (no input). Only one Velleman interface can be connected to your computer at a time.The VenueMagic installation does not include the Velleman drivers so they must be installed from the VM116 driver disk.
VenueMagic incorporates the Artistic Licence Artnet (www.artisticlicence.com) library to provide multi-universe (# of universes depends on which version of VenueMagic you own) input and output over ethernet. VenueMagic can use this interface to communicate to a variety of ArtNet capable DMX adaptors including the ENTTEC Open DMX Ethernet (www.enttec.com). In Windows Vista and Windows 7 you may need to run VenueMagic with administrator priviledges for Artnet to work properly. This is a characteristic of the Artistic Licence driver.(Supported by DMX+AV & SC+ editions only)
