LLA allows DMX sent using various DMX over IP protocols to be converted from one format to another. This enables devices from different manufacturers to talk to each another (for example a Strand Console can send DMX to an Enttec EtherGate).

LLA Live is a stand-alone bootable CD containing software from the Linux Lighting Architecture project.

When combined with a physical DMX interface such as the DMX USB Pro, LLA Live can send and receive data from traditional wired DMX networks.

This means that you can send DMX data over WiFi, and connect a DMX interface to the router/access point.
