Open Lighting Project
The Open Lighting Project is a multi-faceted effort aimed at accelerating the adoption of new, standardized control protocols, while also providing high quality, reliable, open software for the lighting industry.
Contributions to date include:
- libartnet, An ArtNet implementation for Mac, Linux and Windows & iPhone.
- Open Lighting Architecture, a framework that enables protocol translation from legacy, closed protocols and abstracts control software from the underlying hardware / protocol.
- Automated RDM Responder Tests, which aims to increase the quality of devices as more manufacturers adopt RDM.
- The RDM Parameter ID Index, a searchable, royalty free index of manufactures specific PIDs used in RDM.
The primary method of communication is via the Open Lighting mailing list.
Software from the Open Lighting Project is used around the world daily. The Open Lighting Projects List documents some known uses. Feel free to add to it.
Finally many companies have supported the Open Lighting Project, OLA Contributors lists them and explains how you can get involved.
