ENTTEC to release DMX USB PRO Mk2 at LDI 2012

Original the good folks at ENTTEC released the DMX USB Pro in 2005. This then went on to be one of the industry standard USB DMX dongles out there. It work with many different software packages. Will since then the backroom boys have been working on the replacement. It is the DMX USB PRO Mk 2 and it will be officially launched at LDI 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

The new unit is fully backward compatible with all previous software that supported the old unit. The new device also comes with a whole host of new features:

  • Fully backward-compatible with all software titles that support DMX USB PRO
  • Dual, fully independent, DMX ports each with full RDM capability
  • MIDI input and output ports
  • Standalone operation for unattended replay of lighting shows (limit 1 universe)
  • One firmware version supports all features
  • Aesthetically slim-profile, machined aluminium box
  • True 1500V isolation separating all DMX ports from each other (protect your computer and each data line from surges)
  • Internal frame buffering (preserve data integrity when computer is busy)
  • Works at various communication speeds
  • Utilizes the FTDI chipset, (compatible with Windows, OSX, Linux etc.)
  • Stores configuration and user data in EEPROM
  • Refresh rate configurable from 1 to 40Hz
  • Break time configurable from 96uS to 1.3mS
  • MaB time configurable from 10.6uS to 1.3mS

Certainly look forward to seeing this when it arrives on Australian shores. It seems to me a very cost-effective, useful tool for the lighting professional.
