What means DAC?

DAC stands for Digital Analog Converter.

What is a Digital Analog Converter?

A DAC is a hardware device that is able to convert computer generated laser images (serial signal) into ILDA laser control signals (parallel signal).
Typically USB and Ethernet controllers are used as DACs.
For every individually controlled show laser display you'll need another DAC.

What is better - USB or Ethernet?

Most modern laser show software uses LAN transmission of the ILDA control signal due to very long transmission distances.
