ArtNet is a network protocol for sending DMX512 and RDM data via Ethernet in an IP-based network. Compared to sending DMX via a XLR cable, with ArtNet users can transfer multiple DMX universes simultaneously via a single cable.

In combination with show lasers, ArtNet allows for convenient control via a lighting console or any other ArtNet-capable hardware controller. This also enables laser systems to be easily integrated into extended network environments. The ShowNET laser mainboard can be controlled directly via ArtNet. This means that most laser products from Laserworld fully support ArtNet.
