IQ Tester LV Eval 2019-01-08
Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Cannot charge without unit being on?

Ethernet

Network Status
• Device only 100MB?

Activity Monitor
• Like to be able to scroll when "frozen"
• Like to see Art-Net universe
• Love to be able to record and then send off the net activity. (like Wireshark)

Protocol Detector
• ETCNet3?
• Vx76? We would love to have our engineers work with your developers to get this on there.
• Series 400? Same note as above.

Protocol Info
• What are Streams/Sources?
• sACN on a 676 system said "0" Streams and "-" Sources
• Art-Net on a 676 system said "1" Stream and "-" Sources

Active Devices
• Like to be able to click into each line item and see what device type it is (obviously if the connected device is able to do so, LLDP?)

Mcast Streams
• Can we sort these ?
• i.e. By "universe"
• i.e. By "source"
• i.e. By "largest number of packets" (averaged?)

Input

ArtNet Input
• Can we sort by universe?
• Can we sort by source?
• Can we see the incoming FPS?

sACN Input
• Can we sort by universe?
• Can we sort by source?]
• Can we see the incoming FPS?
• Arrow keys are not highlighted to go down like other pages.
• Arrow keys go away in this window.

DMX Data View
• Would like to select a channel in single view
• Would like to be able to record these values in txt format.

Output

• Confusing that the output values are all global in the DMX Output while sACN/ArtNet act more like config/enable

Artnet Output
• When editing a field, like Disabled/Enabled, I wish the up/down would toggle through. Right now you have to press down for disabled and up for enabled.
• When I toggle down on Net, it only goes between 1 and 0.

sACN Output
• Slot 1 had universe 0 in it by default.

DMX/RDM Output
• Very confusing that the enter key clears out the values
• Need to be able to select what universe we are outputting on
• Like to be able to flash
• At very least like to go from 0>255
• Like to save presets
• Keypad would be awesome!

ETHERNET

Network Status

• Device only 100MB?
  • Correct, IQ Tester LV is only 100MB
Activity Monitor
• Like to be able to scroll when "frozen"
  • Scrolling can be integrated, but only about 200 packets – this is due to a limitation of memory
• Like to see Art-Net universe
  • There is not enough space on screen to show that
• Love to be able to record and then send off the net activity. (like Wireshark)
  • Recording and sending network activity is not possible, because for that you need very powerful hardware and lot of memory. It is better to use Wireshark for that

Protocol Detector
• ETCNet3?
  • This is the same as sACN and would need to be recognized like sACN – we will check on that
• Vx76? Series 400? We would love to have our engineers work with your developers to get this on there.
  • Yes we are ready to work together to make it possible to detect that protocol, but only after the 1st version of software is fully developed

Protocol Info
• What are Streams/Sources?
  • Streams show the number of sending universes
  • Sources show the number of devices which are sending universes (computers, lighting consoles, etc)
• sACN on a 676 system said "0" Streams and "-" Sources – why?
  • Streams "0" is a bug, will be fixed - sources function is currently off
• Art-Net on a 676 system said "1" Stream and "-" Sources – why?
  • Streams "1" indicates that you are streaming 1 universe - sources function is currently off

Active Devices
• Like to be able to click into each line item and see what device type it is (obviously if the connected device is able to do so, LLDP?)
  • LLDP will be available in future software version

Mcast Streams
• Can we sort these ?
• i.e. By "universe"
• i.e. By "source"
• i.e. By "largest number of packets" (averaged?)
  • Yes we can sort these, We will make it in future software release

INPUT

Artnet input/sACN input
• Can we sort by universe?
• Can we sort by source?
• Can we see the incoming FPS?
• Arrow keys are not highlighted to go down like other pages.
• Arrow keys go away in this window.
  • Sorting will be available in future release
  • Arrow key are removed totally and there will not be highlighting of any arrow keys. If they are currently, it is bug that we will fix
DMX Data view
• Would like to select a channel in single view
  • This will be available in a future release
• Would like to be able to record these values in txt format.
  • This will be available in a future release
Output
• Confusing that the output values are all global in the DMX Output while sACN/ArtNet act more like config/enable
  • This is fixed in 0.5.tc2, but we are working hard on navigation. We are searching for the best solution of navigation and controlling channels. In future releases, we hope it will be very understandable and very easy to use

Artnet Output
• When editing a field, like Disabled/Enabled, I wish the up/down would toggle through. Right now you have to press down for disabled and up for enabled.
  • This will be corrected
• When I toggle down on Net, it only goes between 1 and 0.
  • This will be corrected
sACN Output
• Slot 1 had universe 0 in it by default.
  • This is a Bug that that we are going to fix

DMX/RDM Output
• Very confusing that the enter key clears out the values
  • Searching the best way how to clear at the moment – will find a better option in a future release
• Need to be able to select what universe we are outputting on
  • This will be available in a future release
• Like to be able to flash
  • Working on it, will be available in a future release
• At very least like to go from 0>255
  • This will be available in a future release
• Like to save presets
  • Working on it :) Will be implemented soon
• Keypad would be awesome!
  • Keypad will be implement in a future release
