Expand your system and make use of DMX Universes 3-8 by outputting them via sACN using the Ethernet port.
What is sACN?
sACN is a standard to transfer DMX512-A [DMX] packets over a TCP/IP network using a subset of the ACN protocol suite via one single ethernet cable. Its purpose is to allow transfer of large amounts of DMX512 data over a wide area using standard networking technology. The console can send sACN directly from its Ethernet port, however most devices only receive DMX512 via a XLR connector, so you will need sACN Nodes or to convert sACN back to classic DMX512.
Multicast or Unicast
Unicast is when the console sends each universe DMX only to the nodes that are set to that universe (subscribed). Unicast is supported by sACN. However, it becomes less efficient as the number of a given universe increases. Therefore, Ray Console uses Multicast exclusively.
What if I Downgrade?
sACN will no longer be selectable in Network / Ethernet, which means that you will not be able to control devices using sACN. All your sACN settings will remain unchanged, ready for when you want to use sACN again.
