LIGHTING
CONTROL
SHOULD
BE EASY IN
ANY KIND
OF WAY
The complexity of a lighting installation may never be a limitation for its feasibility. That
is where the idea for DiGidots products come from; everything should be possible with
the smallest number of parts and the littlest effort.
A burden of proof for that idea is an imposing project DiGidot took part in. Every large
and noteworthy city in the world has one; a lookout on top of an impressive tower. In
2016, Amsterdam revealed its own; the A’DAM Tower. To control the almost countless
number of LEDs in the different venues of this tower, a relatively small number of
DiGidot C4 controllers was needed. Get to know DiGidot and you’ll find out: You don’t
need much, to achieve a lot in digital lighting.

WHY NOT
HAVE ONE
DEVICE THAT
CONTAINS ALL
THE OPTIONS
That is the question it all started with! DiGidot is a sister company of InventDesign and was founded in 2015. InventDesign,
specialist in creative LED lighting, has a rich history when it comes to LED solutions, especially in the control of tiny
lights. At the end of 2013, InventDesign started pioneering on an in-house developed Art-Net LED driver. This led to a
groundbreaking innovation, completely developed in Amsterdam by Dutch engineers. They were there, in the field, getting
their hands dirty to find the most ideal base for all future lighting control requests.
An Art-Net controller, fully
developed
and
designed
by Dutch
engineers
in
the Netherlands. DiGidot
stands for genuine, fair and
transparent
development,
based on both field experience
and in-depth knowledge of the
markets demands. That is why
the company has a promising
future ahead.
DiGidots developments result
in high-end technologies for
many purposes in the digital
lighting industry. Such highend outcomes can only be
achieved by using state of the
art and durable materials.
DiGidot stands for perfection
into every little detail. Not
only in how the products are
developed and produced,
but also the way they are
presented.
GROUNDBREAKING
INNOVATION FOR
LIGHTING INDUSTRY
In 2013, the development of an Art-Net device was started. Days and nights passed, but the results are impressive! One
device with great features for the lighting industry; a bridge to integrate your lighting with any other system, a pixelcontroller, an Art-Net node, a show recorder and a trigger device, all in one.
The driver has four outputs for which you choose the protocol that suits your installation best. Whether it’s an LED pixel
working with one of the many addressable LED drivers, PWM signal or the well-known DMX protocol, the DiGidot C4
covers it all! At maximum load, the DiGidot C4 drives 1536 channels on each of the 4 outputs, at a speed of 60 frames per
second. After a long testing period with over 1000 devices in several installations, we now confidently say; the DiGidot C4
has enormous potential and is ready to conquer the market!

POSSIBILITIES
DiGidot C4 EXTENDED
The goal is to work with worlds most common protocols. Both Art-Net and DMX can be used as input and output protocols
on the DiGidot C4. Do you work with a different protocol? No worries, over 20 addressable LED drivers have been added
to the DiGidot IC library; both well known as more exotic IC protocols.
Output settings
Each of the four digital outputs on the DiGidot C4 can control up to 1024 individually controllable lights in its most ideal
setup. That’s up to 4096 individual lights in total. You can freely change the protocol of the outputs, assign universe
numbers, change the start address and change the advanced settings of each universe. A couple of the most interesting
ones:
• Adjustable color order
• Repeat channels
• Combine channels
• Multiple dimming curve options
• Art-Net IP address filtering
Merge inputs
When you’re working with a setup using multiple sources of Art-Net input, the DiGidot C4 can merge the two inputs based
on a HTP-merge called parallel universe. Our HTP-merge has proven itself during a live show with 200 Art-Net universes.
Extremely efficient infrastructure
Previously some installations required multiple Art-Net to DMX nodes and DMX to SPI decoders, where the DiGidot C4 is
all of that in one. It replaces 12 Art-Net nodes and SPI decoders. So you can say; less devices, less cabling, less installation
time meaning less costs. Furthermore, the DiGidot C4 comes with a build in ethernet switch, so you can daisy chain
multiple DiGidot C4 devices.
Play or trigger recorded scenes
Two of the best features of the DiGidot C4 are recording and playback functions, that allow you to easily record your input
and process the recording into a flawless looping scene. The DiGidot C4 comes with a 8Gb industrial graded MicroSD
card to store all of your favorite scenes. You can use the trigger function, the DiGidot IOS app or the API to playback your
recorded scenes.

You don’t always need recording, play and triggering functions in every lighting installation. The DiGidot C4 Live controller
brings you the same results but without those specific features.

AN INTERFACE
WITH THIS
MANY
OPTIONS WAS
NEVER THIS
INTUITIVE
BEFORE
The DiGidot C4 user interface allows
you to have full control over the
user accounts and rights, the basic
and advanced settings, scenes and
recordings, updates and much more!
Use the settings page to setup all the
inputs and outputs of the DiGidot C4
Extended and configure your device
network settings easily.
The user can create triggers with all
kinds of input for example: on power
up, analog, DMX, Art-Net, HTTP GET,
UDP, time, and the onboard button.
You might have noticed that DiGidot aims to make light control easy for everyone. The intuitive web-based user interface
makes the setup of the device as simple as it gets. The DiGidot C4 user interface is embedded in the device, which makes
downloading and installing additional software unnecessary. The responsive HTML5 interface is optimized for Google
Chrome on all platforms. The user interface has a clean look and feel and clear explanations that leaves you a minimal
learning curve. With DiGidot C4 Extended, trigger actions like power-up, time-based, contact-closure over analog, Art-Net
input, DMX input, UDP and HTTP can be assigned on the fly.
The DiGidot C4 Extended can record
from Art-Net or DMX input and
playback your favorite scenes. This
makes the DiGidot C4 Extended a
stand-alone playback device in your
setup.
CONNECT
Example 1; ­Single wire SPI output
In this example we use four outputs, each to drive DiGidot WS2812B LED strips. Every output can drive up to 510 pixels.
For the power we connect all the strips to one power supply. The power supply also powers the DiGidot C4. Make sure all
ground wires are connected together. The device is connected to the ethernet, which contains the Art-­Net signal.
