Network integration using CITP

It is possible to integrate with Capture using the CITP network protocol. The CITP protocol is open for anyone, free of charge and allows you to:

  • Transmit DMX data to Capture without the need for other protocols such as Art-Net or sACN. (CITP/SDMX)
  • Transmit encrypted DMX data to Capture, useful for instance with "offline" or demo versions lighting control systems. (CITP/SDMX)
  • Receive DMX feedback from Capture, most commonly used to receive fixture focusing information from Capture. (CITP/SDMX)
  • Transmit streaming video to Capture. (CITP/MSEX)

You can find the CITP protocol specification and a discussion forum at http://www.citp-protocol.org. Feel free to contact support@capturesweden.com if you have any technical questions related to integration with Capture using CITP.
