Fundamentals of

ETC Networking:

Net3

where we came from
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…
evolution of etcnet
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)
where we are going
Where we are going…
  • So we had ETCNet, ColorNet, ShowNet …and does anyone listen to one another?

Now we have ACN

what is acn
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…
what is acn1
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
what is net3
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
evolution of etcnet1
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

  • Modular – DMX port connections
  • Power over Ethernet or external DC power supply
  • LCD screen for status and configuration
