Three PLASA Control Protocols Draft Standards in Public Review
13 August 2012
UK / USA - Three draft control protocol standards are available for public review on the PLASA website until early October. They may be downloaded for free at the web address below.
BSR E1.37-2 - 201x, Additional Message Sets for ANSI E1.20 (RDM) - Part 2, IPv4 & DNS Configuration Messages, and BSR E1.45 - 201x, Transport of IEEE 802 data frames over ANSI E1.11 (DMX512-A), are available for review through October 1. BSR E1.37-2 provides additional get/set parameter messages (PIDs) for use with the ANSI E1.20 Remote Device Management protocol. Messages in this document are intended for configuring network interfaces and Domain Name System settings on devices with an IPv4 address. BSR E1.45 defines a minimal method to transport IEEE 802 data frames over ANSI E1.11 physical links using an Alternate START Code. The primary motivation is to allow communication of 802 data to luminaires over a ANSI E1.11 DMX512-A datalink for data transmission from those luminaires using Visible Light Communication, IEEE 802.15.7. However, this Standard may be used to transport any 802 data for any purpose.
BSR E1.33 - 201x, Entertainment Technology -- (RDMnet) -- Message Transport and Device Management of ANSI E1.20 (RDM) over IP Networks, is available for review through October 8--one week longer than the other two standards. BSR E1.33 describes a method of implementing ANSI E1.20 Remote Device Management messaging over an IPv4 network. The primary anticipated use of the standard would be to complement ANSI E1.31 on an IPv4 entertainment lighting control network. This project was originally described as offering extensions to E1.31, but its messages work alongside E1.31 in the same network environment.
