It's Back! North American Plugfest Returns

US - The PLASA Control Protocols Plugfest, the event where manufacturers and developers can test their entertainment lighting control products for interoperability with other manufacturers’ products, is scheduled to take place 17th-20th January 2014 at the Marriott Solana in Westlake, Texas. The Plugfest was created originally to support the Remote Device Management protocol (ANSI E1.20) but it has expanded to cover all the PLASA Control Protocol Working Group's protocols, including the popular ANSI E1.31 Streaming DMX over ACN protocol, and now a draft version of RDMnet (BSR E1.33). In the past, Plugfest attendees from all over the world have brought controllers, luminaires, analysers, and various other tools and devices, and connected them all through a network to look for and to resolve problems; they will do the same this coming January. Complimentary coffee and snacks are served. There is no fee for participating in this North American Plugfest.

The scheduled hours are 4:00 to 11:00 p.m. on Friday 17th January, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and 9:00 a.m. to noon on Monday, 20th January. A full schedule and a link for hotel reservations can be found at Reserve a room before the block is sold out!
