Daslight DVC4 GZM DMX software package
The Daslight DVC4 GZM is an interface that translates the information from the Daslight 4 software package into a DMX signal. This particular model is the most elaborate of the the DVC4 series of interfaces, giving you access to 3,072 DMX channels. Half of those channels work via the DMX output, while the other half work via Artnet when you use your computer's Ethernet connector. With the RJ45 connector, you can even control the DVC4 GZM using an iPad, iPhone or Android device when it's in standalone mode. Furthermore, using the free-to-download Daslight 4 software, creating your own light show on your laptop or computer has never been easier. You can select fixtures from the extensive library and add them to your lighting plan. When you're done, you can pre-render the whole show, with all its movements, colour chases, scenes and so on, so that you'll get a virtual representation of your entire show on your screen. It's a great way to prevent any unpleasant surprises come show time.
DVC4 GZM: the big one
The Daslight DVC4 GZM is the most elaborate of the DVC series of interfaces. You'll have up to 3,072 DMX channels at your disposal, which should be enough to satisfy even the most demanding users. Besides the mini USB connector, the interface also has an RJ45 connector that can be used as an alternative for USB, allowing you to control the interface with your smartphone or tablet when it's in standalone mode. While the Daslight 4 software is free to download from the Daslight website, you'll still need an interface like the GZM to translate its signal so that your fixtures will understand it. This interface has both a 3-pin and a 5-pin connector, so that you can use it virtually anywhere. What's more, it even has a micro SD card slot, allowing you to load even the most elaborate light shows onto the DVC4 GZM so that it can run them in standalone mode on location, without the need for a computer or laptop.
