    sACN unicast support

    by meelow » Tue May 12, 2020 7:15 pm

    Hi MadMapper Team,

    I want to control hundreds of leds (many universes) via MadMapper.
    Does MadMapper offer sACN (E1.31) mode only in multicast?
    I fear to clogg up my ethernet bandwidth.

    MadMappers ArtNet does support unicast.

    There has been several questions on this board about unicast sACN:
    - ... ast#p31805
    - ... ast#p58115

    Any plans to implement this?

    PS thanks for this awesome software (and the lockdown offer - i probably will get hooked)

    It's not planned at the moment.
    Why not using ArtNet ? Artnet is better, unicast is working without manually entering IP addresses thanks to ArtNet Polling mechanism (ArtPoll / ArtPollReply). With sACN you would have to enter IPs manually, which can be a long task and prevents using DHCP.
    We might implement unicast sACN but since most good LED drivers support ArtNet it doesn't seem a big point. What's your driver ?
