DMX Network Devices & Controls
The Backbone of Dynamic Lighting
Pathway Connectivity has the end-to-end solution for your DMX lighting network.
Repeaters (or Splitters, and Hubs) allow a single DMX control signal to have several outputs instead of one. A Repeater is beneficial as it enables the creation of efficient and flexible wiring topologies, such as a star topology. DMX wiring without a Repeater can only daisy chain for a maximum of 32 lights. Another benefit of a Repeater is it protects the network from electrical faults, loops, and voltage issues. Pathway DMX devices are available with support for RDM, facilitating bi-directional communications between controllers and luminaires. Pathway also offers data wall receptacles, providing a complete solution.See More
Pathport Gateways allow DMX data to travel over Ethernet networks, improving flexibility of system layouts and operation. The alternative is utilizing 512 slots of DMX data over one wire (also known as one DMX Universe). DMX-over-Ethernet can handle over 60,000 DMX Universes of data on one wire (60,000 x 512 DMX slots) and allows for multiple controllers simultaneously talking to many DMX outputs.See More
VIA switches are Ethernet switches designed for entertainment applications. VIA switches are the heart of Ethernet networks, effectively managing not only lighting data, but also live audio and video enabling the entertainment network to be stable and robust. VIA is designed to get the right data, to the right place, at the right time - every time!See More
