Model : DMX-ART-01A

The Art SSC is a lighting controller for permanent installations. The device is completely solid-state, with no moving parts; it is an extremely secure and low-maintenance installation control solution that has only a minimal power consumption. All operating and programming is done through its dynamic web 2.0 interface

IDEAL FOR : permanent installations, architectural lighting, art installations, retail, bars, clubs, restaurants, exhibitions, interactive media, museums, outdoor lighting and theme parks.

Basic concept of ART SSC is that any cue, DMX/ARTnet recording or scene setting can be triggered by either internal or external triggers. Examples of external triggers are a DMX input signal, contact closure or UDP or OSC messages. Internal (unattended) triggers can be generated by the built-in Real Time Clock using day/date schedule or daily sunset/sunrise.

Lighting Console
Connected to a browser, the ART SSC unfolds itself into a 1024 channel lighting controller, complete with an industry-standard command-line interface for fast programming. It features 256 scenes with programmable fade and hold times.

DMX Recorder
With its exceptional value-for-money, the ART SSC also features a DMX and Art-Net recorder with a capacity for storing 16 individual tracks. When using DMX input each track has 512 channels, when using Artnet input each track has 1024 channels. Tracks are compressed for maximum duration. Multiple tracks can be played back, each with individual master levels.

Show Control
With lighting projects becoming more complex every day, the ART SSC features powerful Show Control logic for advanced system integration. This allows for interaction with other types of equipment and controllers. The Show Control editor enables you to program triggers and actions based on events from scheduled dates or times, time code, contact closures or any other incoming signal.

Protocol conversions
The Show Control editor also allows for powerful protocol conversions between any physical port, like DMX or MIDI and any Ethernet based protocol like Art-Net or OSC.

Features a battery backed-up Real Time Clock that can trigger events on date, time, weekdays and sunrise or sunset. Daylight savings can be switched on and off and an offset can be applied to sunrise/sunset triggers as well.

Trigger events or synchronize playback by time code. The ART SSC can also act as timecode master or convert between SMPTE and MTC. 

For the ultimate stand-alone playback, ART SSC is compatible with the aTouch software. aTouch is a cross-platform (Windows, Mac & Linux) touch screen user-interface. In the ART SSC any combination of buttons and faders can be programmed, that will be available to the operators using aTouch. aTouch is password protected to ensure minimum support or maintenance is required, especially where the interface is for use by the public or non-technical users.

Intuitive monitor screens for analysing incoming and outgoing DMX, Art-Net, MIDI and OSC data. Two DMX512 outputs and one DMX input, all optically isolated. Ethernet rugged Ethercon connection with support for HTML, Art-Net, OSC and proprietary protocols. 

MIDI input, through and out ports.

The GPI port features 4 dry contact closures, which can trigger any event within the ART SSC. The number of contact closures is expandable by connecting to the ART SSC's ART IO module.
