Configuration The SnakeSys R8 uses a simple but powerful Ethernet to DMX engine, based on a custom designed FPGA hardware logic. This ensures maximum performance and reliability – it is truly designed from the ground up for the task. It avoids the complexity and unreliability of other designs based around PC hardware or microprocessor boards. DMX processing is carried out within the FPGA logic. The SnakeSys R8 can be configured over the network from MagicQ via the ChamNet protocol. The SnakeSys R8 ports can be configured individually. In addition, the R8 supports in-built standard configurations, including: • All Art-Net Output (Art-Net 0–7) • All Art-Net Input (Art-Net 0–7) • All ACN Output (Universe 1–8) • All ACN Input (Universe 1–8)
