Denon DJ X Resolume - How do I accomplish this?

I just saw this video Denon DJ & Resolume AV Demonstration

I connected my set up (2 sc5000 and x1800) to Resolume Arena 6. I used ethernet, and was able to control the videos with the sc5000 however with the color shift and strobe effect, I couldn’t make this work.

are their any setting that I need to adjust? How do I do what the video demonstrated?

Was there a software bridge you needed to use or is Arena 6 plug and play? I was curious about this as I am an absolute lover of Resolume.

nope no software bridge, just plug in your rj45 (ethernet cable) to your computer from the x1800 mixer. I have complete control over both the track I’m playing and the video that is linked to the player.

Saweet. I am gonna have to give that a whirl this weekend. I really want to start incorporating more live visuals into my sets.

Hi all

Please find below 3 helpful links to assist in anything relating to Resolume/StagelinQ

In addition, Resolume have just released Arena version 6.1.2 that is compatible with the forthcoming Prime 4 unit:

Did you reformat the videos to the Resolume perfered format using Alley?

Yes I did. After a lot of research, trial and error. I found that they had midi connected to resolume as well. Not just stagelinq. Stagelinq can works a lot like smtpe timecode but also allows fader to be handled as well.

I personally would like to see a bpm read that comes through the protocol. As well as being able to map certain dj actions to resolume.

Hey - Is there any step by step how to for Prime 4. I can’t get them synch must be doing something wrong and something probably very stupid lol. I have everything connected to a switch, there is no DHCP on the network if that matters, I have no way to check what IP is configured in the prime 4.

Did you follow the article on the Resolume site (linked by paul_denondj)?

Hey - Yes I did. It does say that “The easiest way to do this, is to use a router that hands out IPs via DHCP and let the router do the rest.” However, I’d prefer to use a manual IP. How can I configure it into the Prime 4 link interface?

If there’s no DHCP, the Prime4 will revert to APIPA, I think. So a 169.254.x.x network.

You cannot set a manual IP on the Prime devices.

Okey so I managed to install ISC DHCP server and now I can see that the prime 4 unit is getting an IP address and I can ping it all good

But still can’t see the decks on my Arena. (must say that I have two network interfaces on the Media Server, one wired, where the link port is connected, and a Wi-Fi for internet access, the Prime 4 is also connected to the Wi-Fi). Is there anything else I need to check or some config parameter?

Forget it - I got it all working now! yay, all 4 decks tested! One last question, does it work on computer mode with Serato?
