Introduction to Show Networking
Standard computer industry networking technologies now form the backbone of control and audio/video distribution systems on shows today of nearly any size. Ethernet today is used to control lighting equipment, carry other protocols like DMX512, link video systems or transport audio. This basic session for beginners introduces networks and their applications on shows and offers an overview of the protocols that make modern networks work. Key topics, such as IP addresses, network topology and basic transport protocols, will be introduced, and basic aspects of network operations will be demonstrated.
