Today Julia from Gantom lighting will give you some suggestions on DMX alternatives and simple uses for DMX. DMX is a is a protocol used to control lights in your haunt. DMX can be used for many more things such as fog machines and triggers, but we’re only focused on the lighting today. You need something that generates a signal, and then that signal travels to the light to tell it what to do. The signal can be pre-programmed or controlled live. So, DMX can be simple and run a few fixtures, or complicated to run a large show; it scales to the need. And that need is why we recommend you decide whether to get into DMX. Do you need them to perform a timed show or just a single effect over and over (like a heartbeat)? Would the guest notice lighting that’s in time with other effect? So you see how DMX is highly dependent on your haunt’s experience. If you want to setup a time to discuss your needs with Gantom’s Designers, they’re offering a free 30-minute demo at www.gantom.com/demo
