A pocket size media converter for creating analog laser projector signals from ethernet
data streams. Processes ethernet packes, provides an analog ISP-DB25 (ILDA Standard
Projector) output and a DMX512 output for use with the ISP-DMX standard. The converter is
based on MetaMorph CPU / StageCore1.
The converter can be used in conjunction with StageFeed ISP to build a bridge across (or
tunnel through) a network to teleport waveforms from one end to another. When directly
connecting the converters through a RJ-45 patch cable, the devices act as a digital
substitute of the analog ISP cable. This peer mode is always available and doesn't need
any configuration. For other setups or in conjunction with other senders, the converter supports AutoIP, DHCP
and static configuration. It further supports mature mechanisms for enumeration and

Management and Update Tool (NetView) - Java program located inside the zip file.
Firmware Bundle (StageCore1)
Fully implemented ISP-DB25 port and ISP-DMX ports.
IDN (ILDA Digital Network, under development) on 100 MBit Ethernet.
Zero configuration ISP cable substitute in conjunction with StageFeed ISP peer mode.
User reset, sets defaults for common parameters such as networking for easy retrieval
in case of misconfiguration
Sophisticated time line reassembly and tracking algorithm with jitter compensation and
automatic latency adaption.
Flexible frequency synthesizer with a resolution of 250nS. The synthesizer allows for
precise playback frequency match and detune needed by latency adaption.
Hardware-assisted sample processing
Timeshifts for intensity and color (based on galvo command, known as colorshift) and
color lines (based on intensity, introduced as color line tweaking).
Timeshifts between signals are configured in units of microseconds with a resolution of
250 nanoseconds. This keeps the shifts stable for all sample frequencies.
DAC output calibration (gain and offset).
Laser power linearisation, individually for all color lines. Uses a polynomial to adjust
non-linear laser power response of solid state lasers (not yet available).
Geometry processor (not yet available).
Safety zones (not yet available).
Digital shutter output (TTL).
3x16 Bit DAC for X, Y, U4 signals.
7x12 Bit DAC for I, R, G, B, U1, U2, U3 signals.
All converters are connected serially and can be driven with individual timings to allow
precise time shifts (X / Y can't be shifted against each other).
5% overdrive for component tolerance compensation.
Maximum throughput of 250.000 samples per second, full resolution, all channels.
100 MBit ethernet MAC/PHY with auto MDI-X.
Power supply through a Micro-USB socket (PC or inexpensive mobile charger).
Hand/Pocket-Size adapter, 60 x 56 x 19 mm.
