City Theatrical Expands Pathway Connectivity Product Offering in Europe

City Theatrical has expanded its Pathway Connectivity product offering in Europe with five products now offering SixEye cloud-based remote management. The expansion includes three Pathport DMX/RDM Ethernet Gateways – the Pathport QUATTRO, Pathport OCTO and Pathport 4-Port Gateway, as well as VIA16 PoE Ethernet Switches and Vignette Controllers, which can now be managed and monitored securely from anywhere in the world using a PC or smartphone.

Pathway products extend the functionality of DMX control, and have created the next generation of lighting networks with open system products that harness the power and convenience of Ethernet to create spectacular visual experiences for live audiences worldwide. The integration of SixEye cloud-based remote management provides users with secure access to monitor state, uptime, port status and other mission critical functionality online, potentially saving users time and reducing the carbon footprint of this lighting control technology.

The Pathport QUATTRO is a compact four-port DMX-over-Ethernet management gateway. Power-over-Ethernet operation makes the Pathport QUATTRO ideal for truss-mounted locations, while its silent, fanless operation allows it to be placed immediately next to the lighting console. The encoder knob/LCD screen interface provides front panel access to all common configuration parameters.

The Pathport OCTO is an eight-port rack-mountable gateway, providing compact installation for any size system. Status LEDs provide instant confirmation of port direction and activity, and the LCD display and encoder knob allow for front panel configuration and reporting of the most commonly used features.

The Pathport 4-Port Gateway, eDIN (8") is a four-port, DIN-mountable Pathport gateway. The Pathport 4-Port Gateway is a compact gateway for encoding, routing and decoding DMX512 data over a standard Ethernet network. In addition to DMX, the Pathport 4-Port Gateway supports RDM discovery and configuration data transport. It is also DIN-rail mountable for fast installation in existing cabinets, or available as part of a complete ETL-listed assembly.

The VIA16 PoE Ethernet Switch is a 10/100 Ethernet switch with 16 copper ports and two gigabit mini-GBIC ports for SFP modules. Designed to mount to 35mm DIN rail, this compact switch is engineered specifically for sACN data distribution using Pathport Gateways, Choreo Lighting Controllers, Cognito2™ Lighting Control Consoles and NSB or Vignette architectural wall stations.

The Pathport QUATTRO, now available through City Theatrical in Europe, integrates SixEye cloud-based remote management.

Select Pathway products, including Pathport QUATTRO, VIA16 Ethernet Switch, and Vignette controllers, now support SixEye cloud-based remote management.
