The total number of manufacturer- and user-generated GDTF files in the GDTF Share has surpassed 3000, a significant milestone as the entertainment industry moves towards general support for this technology. The report for October, which we have previously shared in this post, highlights another uptake of GDTF devices from multiple lighting fixture manufacturers like ADJ, JBL, and Chauvet. (The monthly report is focused on total count of devices without including their variations or revisions.)
