URC Adds DMX Lighting Control for Up to 512 Channels and 255 Scenes

Pushing further into ProAV control, URC has announced the integration of Total Control 2.0 with automated lighting systems using the DMX protocol. The new DMX module, available to all authorized Total Control dealers on URC’s dealer portal, allows for two-way control of DMX-based lighting systems from a URC Total Control user interface. Additionally, authorized URC dealers can purchase their choice from two DMX engines directly from URC.

Originally developed for staging, DMX protocol-based lighting systems are gaining foothold in residential and commercial installations, particularly with the advent of automated lighting controls and LED lighting systems.

URC’s Total Control Module, when used with either the DMX engine – RJ45 output or the DMX engine – XLR output, can support up to 512 channels of DMX-based lighting and store internally up to 63 scenes. Both DMX engines were developed by Engineering Solutions, Inc., a company that has 16 years of experience in building bridge interfaces for control of DMX lighting systems.
