Universe metadata

Universe metadata

CRMX transmitters may transmit some universe metadata information used to identify the received universe on the receiver side. These are;

  • Universe name: A 16 character string with a human readable name identifying the universe.
  • Universe color: RGB code for an LED that can easily be used to visually identify the universe by color.

Universe Name

The universe name is an up to 16 characters long textual name of the CRMX universe. When operating in RX mode, this information is available by reading the universe name register. In TX mode UNIVERSE_NAME can be written to transmit a universe name to the receivers.

Universe color

The universe color is a help in identifying what receivers are linked to a particular one transmitter. By selecting a color at the transmitter, either by configuring it via SPI or through the CRMX Toolbox app, this color code is automatically distributed to all linked receivers.

In TiMo receivers this RGB code can be read via the SPI interface.
