Does the 2D monitor provide color display of a "White" channel

Post by cuisinedesiles » Sun Nov 05, 2017 4:52 pm

Hi folks,

using a 4 RGBW channels Color Changer, I do not succeed to get the 2D Monitor display a white color when the white channel (channel 4) is set to 255.

The DMX view correctly shows the channel value getting increased up to 255, but the 2D monitor remains blank.

On the other way, when manipulating either channel 1, 2 or 3, the Red, Green or Blue colors are being displayed correctly.

I therefore suppose that there are some interactions preventing the 2D Monitor, by design, to consider White as a displayable color. Can any one confirm this behaviour ?

For my tests, I've used a common Color Changer Model :
Manufacturer: Stairville
Model: LED Par56 MKII RGBW
Mode: RGBW
Type: Color Changer
Universe: 1
Address Range: 45 - 48
Channels: 4

Thanks in advance

Hey,

Yyou are right - W/A/UV Channels are not supported at the moment by the 2D monitor.
