Vision & MA3 running in MA2 mode

Hi Steve,

Connecting the MA3 in MA2 mode to Vision, works exactly like connecting an MA2 to Vision. In fact, we had an MA3 in the booth at LDI, running in MA2 mode, and it worked great.

As with the MA2, to connect the MA3 to Vision via MA-net, you will need a Vision dongle. This is a requirement that MA set for supplying the MA-net driver.

To further clarify, MA have not yet given any external company access to MA-net 3 and are currently very unlikely to allow it the future.

As Eli says Ma-net 2 is still supported.


If you want to connect a MA3 console running in '3' mode to Vision you must use either Artnet or sACN. This works without any issues and I have been successfully doing this for our trade show stands and other events in Europe since May last year!
