UK – City Theatrical will be demonstrating innovative new technology at PLASA Focus Leeds on May 9th and 10th, 2017 (stand N-C04), including the award winning DMXcat multifunction test tool, SHoW DMX Multiverse wireless DMX, and the QolorPIX pixel controlled tape and pixel controller. City Theatrical will be also showcasing new Pathway Connectivity products such as Vignette and NSB.

DMXcat Multi-function test tool makes it easy for anyone to control, analyse, or test any DMX lighting fixture, whether it’s a simple LED PAR or a complex moving light. The system consists of a small hardware dongle and a suite of mobile applications. Together, they combine to bring wireless DMX and RDM control plus several other useful functions to the user’s smartphone. The DMXcat solves the problem faced by all users of modern lighting equipment: how to turn on and test DMX lighting gear without using a complicated lighting console. The

DMXcat works with both Android and iPhones.

SHoW DMX Multiverse can broadcast up to five universes of DMX data in the 2.4GHz band (for use worldwide) or four universes of data in the 900MHz band (for use in the Americas). These tiny circuit board mounted modules are particularly suited for lighting equipment manufacturers who are interested in adding wireless DMX to their products. For the first time, due to small size, low cost, increased data transport, and ease of design integration, we believe that the implementation of a wireless DMX chip in every DMX device is possible.

QolorFLEX CT has rebranded its growing line of low voltage dimmers for LED tape into the QolorFLEX family, assuring users that all of our dimmers match perfectly with the ETL listed QolorFLEX LED Tape. The company is adding a great new tiny dimmer, the QolorFLEX 2x4A SHoW DMX Multiverse dimmer. Just 3.187” x .70” x .50” (81mm x 18.8mm x 12mm), it is small enough to fit in a 3/4” (19mm) tube and is designed for building into tiny spaces in props, candles, wands, costumes, and other special effects. Utilizing SHoW DMX Multiverse radio, the circuit board has been miniaturised to take the minimum space possible.

Configuration settings can be made through a computer (Windows or Mac) via a micro USB connection. No external power is required for this. Alternatively, configuration can be made via RDM through any RDM controller, such as City Theatrical’s DMXcat. Maximum load per channel is 4A and maximum load per device is 8A.

All of City Theatrical QolorFLEX Dimmers are feature rich, RDM enabled, and have the exceptionally smooth low end dimming that professionals demand.

QolorPIX™ pixel controlled tape and pixel controller are an innovative approach to pixel control which offers a high level of creativity combined with plug and play usability. Each QolorPIX controller is preconfigured with personality profiles, which can be combined and tuned to produce thousands of dynamic effects using only a few DMX channels. Chases, fades, scrolls, bursts, and other effects can be created and saved as needed. QolorPIX pixel controlled LED tape connects to the controller using industry standard four pin XLR connectors. Within one minute, the system can be up and running.

Vignette is a system of modular button and slider wall station inserts that allows the user to snapshot

four universes of E1.31 sACN or one universe of DMX512. Design the wall stations needed, from single-gang

up to six-gang. With both Ethernet or RS485 backbone architectures available, buttons can be press-and-hold-to-record and press to playback, sliders can control any sACN slot and be patched to many others using any Pathport gateway, or act as a grand master for the Vignette’s output.

NSB is a system of modular button and slider wall station inserts that are fully compatible with Cognito2 and Choreo lighting control platforms. Design the wall station needed, from single-gang up to six-gang. Ethernet-based, any button or slider may be associated with Memories recorded in a Cognito2 or Choreo.
