if you put the optional superwidget in the fullboar-extensionlot for the playbackwing, is the fullboar then extended to 8 universes?

    If you have an Road Hog Playback Wing with the optional superwidget, then yes you will have 8 universes of DMX.

    You can go even a step further with 2 wings to get 12 universes.

    Marty,

    You are correct that you can go to 12 universes, but only with the upcoming v3.0 software. With the current release of 2.6 the Full Boar supports 8 universes. However in December when we release v3.0 this will increase to 12 so you can use two wings with installed widgets as you suggest.

    Does the Roadhog (no Fullboar) support a playbackwing+superwidget in the 3.0 software version??

    Ronnie,

    The regular Road Hog console only supports four universes max. It does not support expansion of universes.

    Does that mean we can use more widgets with ipc and hog 3 pc also?

    Stevejarden,

    The Hog iPC and Hog 3PC still max out at eight universes via USB. Only the Road Hog Full Boar has been increased to 12 via USB.

    Hi Guys, is there any proposal to add more dmx universe capability to roadhoag via widgets or is it hardware capacity limited, i.e. we will never ever ever see it?

    Mick, the reason it is limited to 4 universes is that it is alot cheaper than the other consoles. It lacks networking and expansion because it is aimed at a market that do not neccassarily NEED it. Let me put this into perspective. This year the Brit awards was run off a Full Boar, not a Hog 3 like some would expect. Taking this into consideration, you can run an aweful lot off 4 universes. Did you watch any dream will do on the TV a while ago? All of that ran off a vector green, which only has 4 universes. Granted they used Art-Net with it because it can, but you can run alot on 4 universes.

    I have a RH in the north for a week in june that I am showing to a hire company and a school who are interested in one. If you wish to come and have a look, I would be happy to help you out. Drop me a PM if you wish to discuss this.

    Regards,

    Mick,

    The Road Hog is sold at a low price because it is non expandable in terms of DMX output and it does not have networking abilities enabled. The console is targeted at markets that need no more than 4 universes of DMX. If more are desired, we sell the Road Hog Full Boar and Wholehog 3 consoles.

    So to answer your question, the Road Hog is not built to be expanded in terms of DMX output.
