Response 4-port DMX/RDM Gateway with 4 DMX 5 Pin Inputs


ETC’s Response DMX/RDM Four-Port Gateway system provides data distribution using the quality and reliability of ETC’s network technology. This model, the RSN-4IN, is a version that comes with four (4) DMX five (5) pin XLR inputs. 

This gateway is ideal for networking systems using the industry standard streaming ACN™ (sACN) protocol and is compatible with mounting and power supply accessories available for other DMX/RDM gateways. In the same manner as other ETC 4 Port gateways, it uses bidirectional Ethernet communication with other network devices to send or receive DMX512 data and RDM messages. It’s available for use as a table-top, rack-mount, or pipe-mounted device.

Unlike the original Net3 line of Four Port gateways, the Response 4 Port gateway does not have interchangeable sleds. This creates a lighter, and more affordable product.

Common applications for the RSN-TERM include:

  • Roadhouses
  • Touring
  • University/professional theaters
  • Convention halls
  • Tech tables
  • Stage manager panels
  • System integration
