The grandMA3 viz-key is the unique solution for a stable and safe connectivity between third-party visualization tools and grandMA3 lighting control systems. Simply connect the grandMA3 viz-key with the visualization computer and it will enable all necessary parameters for visualization. The external visualizer will be recognized as a MA-Net3 device in the network for a direct connection to your grandMA3 session.
Each visualization computer needs one grandMA3 viz-key. It knows knows about all third-party visualizers - there is no need for a specific dongle per manufacturer – one solution fits it all. Additionally, the grandMA3 viz-key comes with 512 parameters onboard that can be output via DMX over Ethernet. This allows for simple fixture tests in the real world if no other parameters are available.
The grandMA3 viz-key runs independent of internet connectivity for up to 10 days before a validation update is needed. All third-party visualizers and further information about the grandMA3 viz-key can be found below.
Here you will find the most current information on which third-party visualizers and which software versions of those products will be compatible with the grandMA3 viz-key. Each visualizer software version is tested and verified before it will be activated to communicate with the grandMA3 viz-key and then released on the corresponding visualizer´s website. The grandMA3 viz-key - the easiest way ever to cross-connect between any scale of grandMA3 lighting control system and any compatible third-party visualizer.
