RDM stands for Remote Device Management, which describes it very well. It is about changing the settings, organizing, monitoring, and working with devices from afar.
MADRIX 5 supports RDM in a specific RDM role:
▪Acts on commands and replies to requests with data via ArtRdm [RDM Responder].
•In this way, MADRIX can act as an RDM device.
•RDM is supported over Art-Net [ArtRdm].
MADRIX 5 mainly provides the current frequencies for:
▪DMX Controller Output
▪DVI Controller Output
You can check the same performance indicators using the »Task Watcher
In addition, general information is also provided, such as name and software version.
1] Set up the correct network settings in Windows and activate Art-Net in MADRIX 5. Learn more »Art-Net [DMX over Ethernet]
2] In the menu Preferences > Device Manager... > Art-Net, activate the checkbox ArtRdm
The main area of application could be using MADRIX RADAR as RDM manager and its great features.
▪MADRIX 5 and MADRIX RADAR need to run on two separate computer systems! Otherwise, no communication is possible.
▪MADRIX 5 and MADRIX RADAR communicate directly over Art-Net with each other [ArtRdm] without requiring an RDM controller or a DMX connection.
▪MADRIX RADAR automatically validates and unlocks a MADRIX 5 Software instance within the license system without requiring a MADRIX RADAR fusion License or MADRIX RDM node, such as MADRIX STELLA.
▪Make sure to search to Discover Devices first in order to add MADRIX 5 to the list of monitored device in MADRIX RADAR.
MADRIX 5 also support the Identify Device functionality of certain network protocols.
As long as Identify is enabled or set via protocol commands, the MADRIX 5 user interface [GUI] will repeatedly change every second from the currently selected theme to the opposite theme, either from dark to light or vice versa.
Identify will also be deactivated when manually switching the theme, either via the menu [View > Theme > Light/Dark] or its keyboard shortcut [Ctrl+T].
In MADRIX RADAR for example, you can send the command by changing the Identify parameter from [0x00] No to [0x01] Yes.
You can manually disable Identify in MADRIX 5 [or enable it again if needed].
▪Go to the menu Tools > Identify
MADRIX 5 allows you to change information that is provided when receiving network requests [via RDM, Art-Net ArtAddress, or similar].
▪Go to the menu Preferences > Options... > General
▪Label - Allows you to changed the device label of this MADRIX 5 instance. This is especially useful when running several MADRIX 5 applications at once within the same network. By default, MADRIX 5 is used.
▪RDM Fixture UID - Defines the last 4 hexadecimal bytes of the RDM unique identifier [with a total of 8 characters]. The first two bytes are locked and represent the ESTA manufacturer ID for inoage [0x4941].
▪Identify - Enables or disables the Identify Device command; as described above. It is deactivated by default.
