An improved version of CLU and matching NETRON Beta 2.93 are avaiable for testing.
This includes support for RDM capture on DMX Input ports, for example to transfer RDM for Robe Follow Spot Systems.
Many improvements were done to the processing speed of all NETRON nodes, especially when capturing DMX data.
The CLU tool now manages all settings natively in the application window.
NETRON firmware can be updated to the nodes simply with the arrow in the CLU application. Version 2.92 is also included, the “RECOVERY” button allows to browse the firmware file to roll back if desired.
Please report back any concerns or positive feedback. We are looking for many testers for the Robe FollowSpot bridge.
