USA – City Theatrical introduced new technology during LDI 2016, in Las Vegas last week. SHoW DMX Multiverse provides unprecedented levels of wireless DMX data transmission in a tiny package, for the first time, allowing the realistic possibility of a professional quality wireless DMX chip in every DMX device. The SHoW DMX Multiverse chip is tiny, low in cost, and has the ability to carry multiple universes of DMX data (as many as five universes in a 2.4GHz transceiver or four universes in a 900MHz transceiver), along with full duplex wireless RDM, and the ability to combine DMX slots from any streaming ACN universe into any of the broadcast universes. SHoW DMX Multiverse marks the beginning of a new era of wireless DMX lighting.

DMXcat is a device used to control, analyse, and test DMX lighting gear. The system combines a small hardware dongle connected by a wireless connection to a suite of Android or IPhone apps. Drawing on a built-in database of lighting fixture personalities, DMXcat controls the fixture through a user interface that emulates a lighting console with encoder wheels. The DMXcat system contains a total of seven apps including DMX Controller, Fixture Controller, RDM Controller, DMX Tester, DIP Switch Calculator, RF Spectrum Analyzer, and Light Meter.

City Theatrical has taken the complexity out of specifying and setting up LED pixel tape systems with the QolorPIX family of professional quality plug and play LED pixel tape and control products.

This makes great LED pixel tape effects easy for everyone to achieve.
