Open Lighting Architecture

Described as the Travel Adaptor for the Lighting Industry, the Open Lighting Architecture provides a flexible way to interconnect different lighting equipment, allowing you to spend less time dealing with low-level communication issues and more time designing the show.

It supports all the major DMX-over-Ethernet protocols including ArtNet and Streaming ACN, and over 20 different USB DMX dongles.

RDM Development Tools

The Open Lighting Project has developed a number tools for debugging & testing RDM implementations.

From the Automated RDM Responder Tests to RDM Packet Analyzers, testing RDM gear has never been easier.

OLA on the Raspberry Pi

A step-by-step tutorial is available on installing OLA on a Raspberry Pi.

With the right hardware, you can be running OLA within minutes.

The Raspberry Pi has an SPI output so it can drive LED pixels directly. The OLA LED Pixel tutorial covers controlling pixel strings using OLA on a Pi.
