The DMX lighting control software is a way to intelligently control a lighting ambience which has a number of lighting devices. These devices are digitally controlled via a controller. The lighting devices utilized in top notch stage performances, shows, openings of events etc, are managed by the DMX lighting control software now. What does this precisely mean? To comprehend this let us get much more familiar with what DMX means. DMX is an acronym which means a Digital Multiplex. What does this precisely do and how is it linked to the various lighting elements in a disco?

The DMX lighting control software operated system has the following elements which are 1) a DMX lighting control software controller, 2) a DMX cable, 3) a DMX decoder and 4) a lighting device. The DMX lighting control software transmits signals to the lighting elements linked to it via 512 channels. The lighting element acts based on the instruction from the decoder which is in turn hooked up to the DMX lighting control software panel via the DMX cable. The lighting devices, these days are capable of taking, simultaneously commands from 5 distinct channels. Let us consider an example of a lighting system and understand this set up.

The DMX lighting control software that connects a moving electric light in a discotheque might have a number of features like movement, lights, colors and depth of light etc. , the DMX lighting control software transmits 512 distinct signals at a time. But, say the moving light is set to accept the signal from channels 17, 18, 19, 20 wherein each number corresponds to the elements like movement, number of lights to be switched on or off, coloration, depth respectively and then the corresponding numbers will only be interpreted by the DMX lighting control software decoder. All the rest of the channels transmitted via the DMX lighting control software controller, are cancelled by the decoder setup in the moving light.

The DMX lighting control software transmits electronic signals 44 times in every single second via all its 512 channels. Incredible isn't it? Well, that is the sophistication of this software. Lighting carried out this way offers terrific effects and the visual glory is completely indefinable. The signal transmitted via 512 channels through DMX lighting cables is termed a DMX lighting control software universe. When there is a demand of more than 512 channels for controlling a specific lighting gadget or a group of devices, one could go for multiple DMX control software universes.

For a nice visual illustration of a DMX lighting control software in action consider a glimpse into that excellent Youtube video clip:
