Multiverse® Transmitter

Share this page:


Multiverse Logo

The Multiverse® Transmitter opens a new world in wireless DMX/RDM. Its Ethernet input allows it to take in Streaming ACN (sACN) or Art-Net and to transmit between eight and 10 user-selectable universes of DMX/RDM, depending on the type of Multiverse Transmitter product used, with the ability to use less radio energy than a present day single universe wireless DMX transmitter.

The Multiverse Transmitter has a Bluetooth radio receiver built in that allows it to communicate with City Theatrical’s DMXcat® app from the user’s smartphone. This gives the user smartphone control of any lighting fixture that is part of the Multiverse setup, whether it is a lighting fixture with a Multiverse Module inside, a lighting fixture receiving its data from a Multiverse SHoW Baby or Multiverse Node, or any wired fixture downstream of those devices. 

The Multiverse Transmitter is Wi-Fi enabled, allowing for communication and control from tablet based Wi-Fi lighting controllers like Luminair.

Other compatible Multiverse products include:
Multiverse SHoW Baby
Multiverse Node
Multiverse Module


Multiverse Wins Award for Best Debuting Product: Lighting at LDI 2018

  Multiverse Wireless DMX/RDM at Super Bowl LIVE in Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida

“Multiverse worked great for us. When starting to design this show, Multiverse was the best option for us to get data around Bayfront Park. It made our load in process much quicker as well.”
- John Fitzgerald, Lead Field Technician, Dynamic Productions USA

“Multiverse has been bulletproof for us. It helped us avoid all the cable discussions. It requires very little power. The user interface on the Multiverse Nodes and DMXcat made setup very simple for us.”
- Lonnie Juli, Lighting Designer

The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze















  Multiverse Wireless DMX/RDM at The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze

"With the Multiverse Transmitter, we were able to focus on setting up and talking to a single device, as opposed to setting up multiple devices. Broadcasting multiple universes from one device means fewer power supplies, a more compact package, and potentially lower wireless DMX costs."
- Jay Woods, Lighting Designer, The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor
