Exclamation E1.37-1 RDM Message Extensions document in Public Review

An extension document to RDM that features additional RDM Messages primarily geared for Dimming Systems and onboard Presets along with a number of new general use messages has just gone into Public Review today.

Feel free to openly discuss here on the site any question or issues you see. Keep in mind that it is critical that you also submit a formal comment using the form from the ESTA site if there is something that you want to see changed.

Below is the official announcement and link:


A new draft standard for public review has just been posted: BSR E1.37-1, Additional Message Sets for ANSI E1.20 (RDM) --Part 1, Dimmer Message Sets. The document is in public review at through 26 July 2010. The review is over when July 27 starts.

BSR E1.37-1, Additional Message Sets for ANSI E1.20 (RDM) - Part 1, Dimmer Message Sets, is part of the BSR E1.37 project, and provides additional get/set parameter messages (PIDs) that are intended for, but are not limited to, use with entertainment lighting dimming systems. These additional messages allow access to configuration parameters commonly found in many theatrical dimming systems.

But wait! There's more.

The draft standard also includes some new PIDs that are not dimmer specific. Check them out!
