PLSN Awards Luminex’s LumiNode - Best Data Distribution System

PLSN Awards Luminex’s LumiNode - Best Data Distribution System


Toronto, ON, December 13, 2019 – A.C. Lighting Inc. and Luminex Network Intelligence were honored to be presented with PLSN’s Best Data Distribution System award for the LumiNode during LDI 2019.

Every year PLSN visits industry tradeshows looking for cool new technologies that will impact the entertainment industry. A committee is formed that looks at all the latest innovations that are in demand and will make a technician or Lighting Designer’s project better.

PLSN explained that last spring at PL+S in Frankfurt PLSN was introduced to the new Luminex LumiNode series and it filled a niche that nobody else was. As far as distributing signal, there are many options available that productions can use, but The LumiNode ticked all the boxes - like having a Swiss Army Knife of splitters.

The LumiNode has an innovative new interface, which is at least ten years ahead of the market. It effectively handles all current protocols, anticipates future protocols and can adapt easily to any network infrastructure. With LumiNode you have up to 16 processing engines and up to 2 DMX ports. This provides more processing capacity for flexibility at your event. You can merge up to 4 input sources and the LumiNode easily adapts to future protocols.

The complete redesigned interface, combined with the new network management software, the Luminex Network Manager, provides unparalleled working and organizational comfort in a secure manner.

LumiNode consists of 3 main models: LumiNode 2 has 4 processing engines and 2 DMX outputs, LumiNode 4 has 6 processing engines and 4 DMX outputs, and LumiNode 12 has 16 processing engines and 12 DMX outputs.

The LumiNode 1 is the smallest device intended to accompany network technicians like a multi-tool. It has 2 processing engines and 1 DMX output. 

“Luminex Network Intelligence and A.C. Lighting Inc. are honored to have received such a prestigious award from PLSN.” Commented Sarah Lima, Brand Manager for Luminex. “The LumiNode has made a positive impression on the market since we launched it in the late spring, and is expected to be the go-to Data Distribution System.”
