Nodle Interface

Nodle nodle u1Until now, the non-profit association DMXControl Projects e.V. only provides software (the two light control programs DMXControl 2 & 3). Though we support many interfaces, in particular the DE interface of the Digital Enlightment project with the sale of its components in our shop, we hadn't developed our own interface yet. Accordingly we hadn't the full access to the entire specifications and the source code of the interfaces.

However, only a complete access and the possibility to change functions of the interface firmware allows us to coordinate DMXControl with the DMX interface. In addition the interface functionality can benefit from new features in DMXControl. Therefor, we developed the Nodle U1 interface.
