Third Place : DMX Portal

The well-designed DMX Portal is an affordable DMX lighting controller. You can use the novel system to remotely control up to 512 channels through an IP-based network or directly interface them to embedded systems with a serial connection. It was designed to be perfectly suited for designers who want to off-load DMX management and refreshes from the main system controller.
