- New Driver: Onvif TCP Connector

We have now basic Art-Net support. The main usage of then V-Control Art-Net driver is to trigger other devices. It is also possible to use the driver to have DMX output if an Art-Net node such as Kissbox DMX1-TR is used.
For some devices not direct accessible by V-Control, we provide Connectors. A V-Control Connector is a piece of software that controls the device native and provides a Interface (typically UDP or TCP) to connect to other software products such as V-Control.
So the V-Control Connector does all the communication with a device internally and provides a simple control protocol via network to communicate with V-Control. This also has the advantage that devices not available via network now are network controllable. The V-Control Connector is running on a computer where the device is connected to (typically via USB). This can be the same machine where V-Control is running, but doesn’t have to.
