Hi all
This might be a bit old school but I was wondering if I can control a DL1 with a JANDS 416 and if so are there any limitations. Thanks in advance

    you can control it with anything that will spit out DMX.

    The only control a DL1 needs is quite simple anyway, movement, iris, focus, zoom, and control channel (there may be an mspeed parameter in there too)

    Below is the DMX channel function, if that is helpful.
    Channel Function
    1 Pan Course
    2 Pan Fine
    3 Tilt Course
    4 Tilt Fine
    5 Iris/Shutter
    6 Focus
    7 Zoom
    8 MSpeed
    9 Macro
    10 Control
    11 Input Source Select

    Hope this helps,

    If you need the DMX Protocol,

    It can be found in the user manual; page 4-7.

    Thanks heaps Sandals512 for the reply, very helpful. Thanks also p_ hancock for the protocol . very useful
    I very much appreciate your help... I haven't used the DL1's before but it seems they will be perfect for the Job. It is a three day world music Carnival in October in Australia... Now I just have to find out the image blending capabilities of 4 DL1's on a 130 degree Cyc.. if any one has any knowledge on image blending that would also be a great help.

    Any edge blending is going to be dependent on the media server or content source used to feed the DL.1 fixtures. The DL.1 does not have a media server on-board.

    It sounds like you may be needing to take a look at the the DL.2 or DL.3, unless you are driving the DL.1 with external media servers.

    Have a look at the Collage Generator Information at the link below. But again, these are for DL.2 or DL.3 only.

    Hope this helps,
