For an upcoming festival we're planning on using 86 Versa/Happy Tubes, they're 16px which means that each tube takes up 48 channels of DMX. Based on that it means we need 4128 Channels total, which split over a 512 universe setup will need just over 8 universes. I'm looking at getting a DMX-King eDMX8 (https://shop.dmxking.com/eDMX8_p_36.html
) which supports 8 channels of art.net via a rack mount controller.
My question is -
What the largest Art.Net channels people have used out of MadMapper?
Can you reliably use 2 art.net boxes out of Madmapper or would it be wiser to drop a few tubes and just deal with the 8 the eDMX support?
Any pointers would be great.
