Some Requests/Suggestions!

Post by JonPlex » Mon Jan 07, 2019 10:26 am

Hi folks.
I'm looking forwards to the full potential of the tester being uleashed - though it's early days I am glad to already have the tester available to use.
I'd mentioned some of the following ideas/requests at the PLASA show but figure, whilst making additions, there's no harm in a recap for other users who wouldn't know what I'd already said!:-
Instruction manual
User definable shortcuts option on first screen to access users most used/favorite items quickly.
Easily selectable ip address lists such as for ArtNet have both a 2.x.x.x and 10.x.x.x clickable and have default options as well as user preferred. Having the opportunity for multiple multiple network connections being active at the same time without needing rebooting would be most handy so you could then easily switch between, for example, sACN and ArtNet.
LTC and adaptor for 3-pin XLR inclusion with the Time Code facilities.
MIDI tester - ethernet and adaptor for MIDI cable.
Buffering/retransmit of DMX.
Snapshot incoming DMX/ArtNet/sACN to store and retransmit later.
Emergency backup - transmit snapshot or hold last input in case of loss of input.
Playback & chase options of snapshots for quick testing purposes or running a simple system. Autofill snapshot option.
Manual fader on touch screen for setting level on individusal or all channels.
Numeric display option for incoming values in place of bar graphic.
All channel control option - ability to send output value to all channels immediately.
Dynamic channel/channels tester which can have minimum, maximum and speed seperately adjusted. Ideally have dynamic channels able to be overlayed on static output channels - e.g. playback snapshot and run dynamic channel/channels on top.
Fixture finder - output a group of channels/fixture personality with the ability to alter the start number of the channels being output.
Rapid high quantity data transmit for checking for network overloading/cable/switch etc. issues.
Thanks and keep up the good work!
