Moncha.go is a great and compact laser show controller that contains all the features of Moncha.NET. It’s a THREE-IN-ONE product with following useful features
To use Moncha.go with Moncha software for the very first time, you have to perform the following steps
You can watch the video with the step by step instructions
In the following picture, you can see the connection scheme for a single Moncha Go device.
You just need to connect your computer with Moncha.go by using the supplied Ethernet cable. Remember to also use an ILDA cable to connect Moncha.go device with your laser projector.
The IP address of your computer has to be set as 192.168.1.X, where X is any arbitrary number. This is important in order to avoid a conflict of IP addresses. A trick we use at Showtackle headquarters is that we use 192.168.1.22 for the computer and IP addresses over 35 (e.g. 192.168.1.35, 192.168.1.36) for all the Moncha.go (or any Moncha.NET) devices – this way we prevent any would-be address conflict between our hardware.
Since you now have the newest Moncha software version – version 5, you need to register your software. It’s really simple; just type in your email address into the Moncha registration form and click Send. The server will automatically send you an activation link. After you finish the registration you’ll be able touse the Moncha software, with unlimited free access and a full customer support from our team.
If everything is set up properly, you can launch the Moncha software. To test your laser output, select some scenes from Moncha workspace and enable laser by clicking on the ‘Laser is OFF’ button.
You can reconnect lots of Moncha.go devices to control up to 25 independent lasers. You will need to use Ethernet switch to reconnect all of the Moncha.go devices and your computer to one network. Here you can watch simple tutorial video how to connect more Moncha.go devices to one network.
The following picture contains correct connection scheme while using more Moncha.go devices.
In case you are going to use for example 5-port Ethernet switch and you want to control more than 5 lasers over Moncha.go, you can use the additional Ethernet switch. For example, this setup is made for 15 lasers
The great benefit of using Ethernet is the ability to be still functioning up to 100m long cables. This is beneficial especially for big shows, where many lasers are used. You just need one Ethernet cable from your control center (computer) to the stage and you can operate with several Ethernet switches on the stage to connect all your lasers.
All of the Moncha.NET devices can be controlled over the standard ArtNET protocol. This allows you to use your lasers even without computer or using popular lightning consoles.
And this allows us to control Moncha.NET device over mobile phones or tablets running on iOS or Android. Yes, NOW you can use all: iPhone, iPad, iPod or Android devices to control your lasers wirelessly! Here is small starting guide explaining how to use it.
Quick start guide to control your laser by using your phone.
To control your Moncha.NET device (laser) you’ll need
This is the basic setup scheme for using your lasers while you are using your mobile phone
To start using your mobile phone for laser shows perform following steps:
Once you start the ArtNET Guru application, the yellow LED diode on Moncha.NET should start blinking and you should be able to switch between the animations / shows stored on the SD card.
Since all of Moncha.NET devices work over the Ethernet, it’s possible to use them over wireless networks (Wi-Fi), too! In this article we are going to give you some recommendations based on our experience, within we actually anticipate using Wi-Fi.
The fact is that the most of the laser shows don’t actually require Wi-Fi. In case you do laser show inside and the distance between the laser(s) and computer is not too long, we strongly recommend to install only one Ethernet cable and not even consider Wi-Fi. You can be 100% sure the show will work just fine.
Especially in small clubs if you use some cheap Ethernet wireless routers, the laser show animations will not be operating fluently and you get a lot of frame drops. In worst case, the entire show might stop a performance. The problem is, if the club is empty, the Wi-Fi might work fine. But once people come, it’ll probably cut off.
Inside you should want to use direct notebook to router wireless connection
Again, this will probably not be functioning well inside, especially when people come. But still, it’s very practical while setting up the show. We connect the wireless router instead of the notebook and then we can take our notebook around the venue and see the show from different angle. You don’t need more equipment than one wireless router and the whole set up will become much easier. Just beware of the quality of the routers – we always use three-antenna routers, because they are better.
However, if your laser show software often crashes when connection is lost, it’s probably not a good option anyway. But that’s no problem for Fiesta or Moncha – they’ll just reconnect and you can continue working.
When performing laser show outside, it’s a good option to go for wireless. But, please, don’t use cheap wireless home/office routers (although they will work better). You should use our directional antennas
