The Response Network Controller (RNC) was a combined protocol converter, DMX patch unit and HTP merger. It featured two input and two output ports supporting DMX, D192, K96 or AMX192 data protocols.
- Allows softpatching of 1024 dimmers from two multi-protocol data inputs to 1024 dimmers from two multi-protocol data inputs to 1024 dimmer outputs making it the ideal item to replace large "front of house" panel, add an on-line backup console, or a parallel analog console to your memory console.
- Monitors console dimmer levels and tests output levels.
- Allows user to turn some work lights on while console is being used to program show.
- Sleep mode optimizes processing speed.
- Optional "Snapshot" unit allows inexpensive console backup with 12 overlapping submasters.
- Available in 19-inch, 1U EIA rack mount or portable versions.
