QolorFLEX® 5x2.5A Multiverse® Dimmer (P/Ns 5942 and 5943): The QolorFLEX 5x2.5A Multiverse Dimmer is a constant voltage, five-output dimmer that can be controlled wirelessly using City Theatrical’s Multiverse wireless DMX* or SHoW DMX Neo wireless DMX/RDM technology, or with wired DMX. This dimmer provides 20-bit PWM resolution and 8-bit or 16-bit control for extremely smooth dimming at the low end of the dimming curve. It uses detachable input and output connectors to make wiring easy. Configuration is performed using RDM, such as with a City Theatrical DMXcat®, or with City Theatrical’s USB Configuration program for PC/Mac. A mounting bracket is included with the Dimmer to allow easy mounting to scenery. This dimmer is designed and built in the USA by City Theatrical. It pairs perfectly with QolorFLEX 5-in-1 LED Tape for ideal use in props and costumes, or for areas where space is a concern.

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
