Basic overview of DigiLite system
The minimum setup of a DigiLite system consists of a control system (e.g. single control panel, multi control panel), and a remote system (e.g. remote head, dolly, etc.)
The two devices are connected via an ethernet cable. By default Egripment delivers all Digilite systems with a fixed unique IP address. So if all devices are connected on there own private network, no further configuration is needed. They will work out of the box!
Before a control system can control a remote system, the two devices need to be paired to each other. This is done with the pair button on the devices or via the multi controller GUI. After pairing the devices together, the remote system can be controlled by the control system.
More complex systems can by achieved by using a multi controller. Multiple remote systems can be controlled from one multi controller. There can, however, only be one multi controller per network. This in contrast to multiple single controllers in one network, which is allowed.
When using an existing network to connect a Digilite system together, care must be taken before connecting to avoid IP conflicts. Be sure every device has a unique IP address, or DHCP is enabled. See the chapter: Changing the IP address of a Digilite system for more information. Egripment can help by preconfiguring devices before delivery of the systems.
