Thumbs up ESTA Control Protocols Plugfest Returns in July!

ESTA Control Protocols Plugfest Returns in July

With the growing success from each of the previous Control Protocols Plugfests, the event has now become a regular part of the ESTA Technical Standards Program meeting schedule and will return for another run in July. With the growing success from each of the previous Control Protocols Plugfests, the event has now become a regular part of the ESTA Technical Standards Program meeting schedule and will return for another run in July.


The event last held in January was the first in the expanded format, not being limited to ANSI E1.20 RDM (Remote Device Management), but open to all CPWG protocols, including the recently released ANSI E1.31 DMX over Ethernet protocol. "Each Plugfest to date has attracted new companies, and we find that they keep returning, as they see the enormous benefits from being able to test their products and to work with other product engineers directly," says RDM task group leader and Plugfest organizer Scott Blair. "We're expecting an additional attendance increase at this July event as more companies adopt the E1.31 protocol. The knowledge pool at these these events is simply amazing, and the collaborative atmosphere is almost impossible to find anywhere else."
The next ESTA Control Protocols Plugfest will be held at the Dallas/Ft. Worth Marriott Solana hotel in Westlake, Texas. The Plugfest will run three days: Friday, July 23, 2010 from 16:00 to 22:00; Saturday, July 24 from 09:00 to 22:00; and Sunday, July 25 from 09:00 to 14:00.

The Control Protocols Plugfest will be an informal event, with the only people around to see the equipment work or fail being engineers and technicians, not customers. The event will provide an opportunity for manufacturers' engineers to see if their products will work with the products of numerous manufacturers, find out on the spot what is wrong, fix it, and try again. With all the members of the RDM and E1.31 task groups that wrote the standards on-hand, it also provides an excellent resource to get implementation questions answered and to learn from everyone's shared experience and knowledge.

For more information and to register, contact Scott Blair at sblair@rdmprotocol.org. Registration is important so that the logistics of the equipment delivery, setup, and removal can be organized. There is no charge for participation and the event is open to everyone. Hotel sleeping rooms can be reserved through ESTA at https://www.esta.org/news/hotelreservations.php

*** Note: Hotel Reservations are still being accepted being accepted through the ESTA site above even though the site says the deadline has passed. If you're interested in attending, then please get your hotel room reservations in ASAP! ***
