City Theatrical’s Multiverse Wireless DMX Technology Now Available in Wildfire Lighting’s VioStorm Series
City Theatrical’s Multiverse Wireless DMX technology is now available with the VioStorm UV LED lighting series, Wildfire Lighting’s flagship black light product line. Multiverse modules, which are tiny radios that can be built into lighting fixtures to provide Multiverse wireless DMX control, now come as an onboard option for use in the 900MHz or 2.4GHz spectrum when purchasing Viostorm Series lighting fixtures. This technology comes as Wildfire Lighting’s first introduction of wireless DMX technology into its products.
“We chose Multiverse because we liked the interconnectivity it brought to the table,” said John Berardi, president and CEO of Wildfire Lighting. “The Multiverse transmitter utilises Ethernet, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi capability, dual band technology, nine simultaneous universes all in a single transmitter, plus integration with the DMXcat app. The Multiverse modules we use connect to all of that, were small enough to be built right into our system, and cost significantly less than other options. There’s nothing like it on the market.”
Wildfire VioStorm UV LED Lighting Series combines true 365nm UV output and long throw performance with the control and efficiency of LEDs. Typically used indoors for large theme park and theatrical applications, the series currently includes two black light lighting fixture models, both of which include Multiverse wireless DMX in addition to standard DMX control.
“The Multiverse module marks the first time that the implementation of a wireless DMX chip in every DMX device is possible,” said Gary Fails, president of City Theatrical, Inc. “We are so proud to partner with Wildfire Lighting as they expand their VioStorm series with wireless DMX technology, and look forward to future wireless DMX integration.”
Due to its low cost, increased data transport, and ease of design integration, Multiverse modules are best suited for lighting equipment manufacturers who are interested in adding wireless DMX to their products. The Multiverse module is available in two frequency ranges, 900MHz (licensed for use in North America only) and 2.4GHz. All versions have a U.FL connector to connect to an external antenna, and each frequency version has the option to include a PCB trace antenna.
