ESTA Plugfest announces free RDMnet webinar
An “Introduction to RDMnet” will be broadcast live on Sunday 21 July from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., CDT. Officially known as E1.33, RDMnet was recently approved by ESTA’s Control Protocols Working Group (CPWG) as a consensus standard and is now on track to obtain approval by the American National Standards Institute this summer. RDMnet extends the functionality of RDM to Ethernet networks. Expect to see products with RDMnet features to begin to appear at trade shows later this year.
This lively, educational webinar will illustrate the challenges solved by RDMnet as well as explain how it works from both a user perspective and within the protocol itself. The recommended best practices approach in implementation for developers also will be discussed. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the CPWG subject matter members that authored this standard.
Registration for this webinar may be made by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Instructions for logging in will be emailed to all pre-registered attendees a few days before the live broadcast. Qualified attendees may also receive 0.5 ETCP renewal credit for each session hour.
