MIDI is an open protocol. ArtNet is open. sACN 1.31 is open. DMX512 is
open. OSC is open. rtp-Midi (Apple MIDI) is open and free to use. IDN
(laser projector stuff) is open but not popular, people use the
EtherDream protocol which is open for unprotected content. Some of these
are commercially developed but no real restrictions?
The protocols from sender boards to LED video walls are proprietary, but
some reverse engineering has been done on the lower end stuff. But most
people don't care about those.
There are some open source apps for this stuff, but they aren't very
usable when compared to commercial competitors. But this is the case with
a lot of software? Qlight+ and all that.
