Work Pro launches DMX streaming device range

Work Pro has launched the LS-Node range of streaming devices.

The LS-Node range is comprised of three models: the LS-Node1, LS-Node2 and LS-Node4, with each number corresponding to the amount of freely configurable DMX universes that the model can support.

Every model in the LS-Node series features several modes of use, including standard node, with ArtNet/sACN inputs and DMX outputs, as well as Merger, allowing the LS-Node to receive different universes via ArtNet/sACN, merging them in the same DMX output.

All models incorporate a backup mode feature, allowing the streaming devices to detect any loss of connection between consoles when both consoles are connected to the LS-Node via ArtNet/Sacn.

The LS-Node automatically switches from the primary to the backup console with a latency of no more than three seconds.

A web-configurable DMX to ArtNet/Sacn transceiver node is available on the LS-Node and LS-Node2.

All LS-Node products come with an integrated Ethernet switch with two ports, for enabling configuration and management, including firmware upgrades, that are carried out via a web-server.

This also allows a range of parameters to be set up, including DMX frame rate (from 15 to 40 frames/s), modes of use and independent DMX routing, which allows any universe to be routed to any of the DMX ports independently.

The LS-Node range can be installed in the same quarter-rack format as Work Pro’s LS-Core, allowing four units to be rack mounted in IU of space with an optional LS-19AR rack chassis.

The chassis is powered via a compact USB-C connector with a cable lock to prevent accidental removal and also supports PoE power.
