Fixture Profiles and Binary Addressing
Fixture Profiles can be entered into the XMT-120A and, once patched, a visual representation of the current channel can be viewed at the bottom of the screen. This can help to indicate what channel of a fixture you are trying to affect with the X-MT-120.
Binary addressing for each channel can also be displayed as straight binary or binary +1. This allow you to check if your fixtures that use binary address switches are addressed properly very easily.
Fixture profiles can now be loaded and saved to the XMT-120A via PC software through the Micro USB port.
