GeNetix Node 5 is a multipurpose node that provides a solution for remote data distribution in a wide variety of applications, notably offering support for Timecode, MIDI and 10Scene.

This universal interface supports Art-Net, sACN, RDM and like all GeNetix nodes are fully configurable from ChamSys consoles, via its in-built web server or via the display on the unit. Its DMX ports are fully configurable, allowing for use as DMX Input or Output, and have configurable DMX timings. With two network ports, GeNetix Node 5 can be either PoE or Mains powered via its powerCON TRUE1 line input. This versatile device is at home in many different environments as a standalone interface, truss-mounted in the rig via its M12 receiver, installed via its DIN rail mount or rack-mounted via its optional rack ears.

The interface's LTC and MIDI ports provide both Timecode and MIDI notes input/output to MagicQ systems over ChamNet as well as supporting Art-Net timecode compatible with any system supporting this, making GeNetix Node 5 ideal for applications where the Timecode or MIDI source is away from the console.

When connected to MagicQ PC Systems via USB, GeNetix Node 5 unlocks MagicQ PC Systems in Full Unlocked Mode, acting not only as a DMX interface but also as a Timecode, MIDI and 10Scene gateway, making the full power of MagicQ software available to systems running on Linux, Mac or PC. When used as an Art-Net/sACN node the GeNetix Node 5 unlocks up to 2 MagicQ Instances via Network.
