BSR E1.45 – 201x, Transport of IEEE 802 data frames over ANSI E1.11 (DMX512-A)

This Standard defines a minimal method to transport IEEE 802 data frames over ANSI E1.11 physical links using an Alternate START Code. The primary motivation is to allow communication of 802 data to luminaires over a ANSI E1.11 DMX512-A datalink for data transmission from those luminaires using Visible Light Communication, IEEE 802.15.7. However, this Standard may be used to transport any 802 data for any purpose.

BSR E1.37-2 – 201x, Additional Message Sets for ANSI E1.20 (RDM) – Part 2, IPv4 & DNS Configuration Messages

This draft standard is part 2 of the E1.37 project. It provides additional get/set parameter messages (PIDs) for use with the ANSI E1.20 Remote Device Management protocol. Messages in this document are intended for configuring network interfaces and Domain Name System settings on devices with an IPv4 address.

BSR E1.33 – 201x, Entertainment Technology — (RDMnet) — Message Transport and Device Management of ANSI E1.20 (RDM) over IP Networks

This draft standard describes a method of implementing ANSI E1.20 Remote Device Management messaging over an IPv4 network. The primary anticipated use of the standard would be to complement ANSI E1.31 on an IPv4 entertainment lighting control network. This project was originally described as offering extensions to E1.31, but its messages work alongside E1.31 in the same network environment.

BSR E1.35 – 201x, Standard for Lens Quality Measurements for Pattern Projecting Luminaires Intended for Entertainment Use

E1.35 describes a method for measuring stage and studio luminaire lens quality with particular emphasis on contrast and perceived image quality (sharpness). It also offers a way for presenting these results on a datasheet in a format that is readily understood by a typical end-user. The procedure specified in this draft is slightly different and more accurate than the procedure specified in the published 2007 edition.
