After inspecting the current setup Jon's solution was to remove the DMX control of the interfaces and install an ethernet network to interface with the power supplies for the LED’s with a Color Kinetics Light System Manager to allow the client to control and map the LED’s individually. By doing this, The Showboat went from using nearly three universes of DMX to only using 5 channels of DMX, while having much greater control.
