Show Baby

SHoW Baby 5 is the latest version of the hugely popular SHoW Baby wireless DMX transceiver.  SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 is incredibly easy to use and incredibly affordable, while still offering the quality and advanced features of SHoW DMX Neo technology. SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 is perfect for the venue or performance where a fully featured SHoW DMX system might be too sophisticated or too costly. The SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 represents a breakthrough in plug-and-play wireless DMX and RDM transmission - a single unit that can be used either as a wireless DMX transmitter or receiver. Set-up couldn’t be simpler with SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5’s instant plug 

and play configuration:  When a DMX cable is plugged into the SHoW DMX SHoW Baby’s DMX Input, the unit senses the connection and configures itself as a transmitter.  If no cable is connected to the DMX Input, the unit configures itself as a receiver. All you need now to set up a SHoW DMX wireless DMX system is two SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 units and two minutes!  In addition, the SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 system offers five different SHoW IDs which allow users to set up a multi-universe system by adding additional transmitters or to use multiple separate SHoW Baby systems in the same area.

Wireless DMX SHoW DMX

SHoW DMX Neo® wireless DMX technology is the latest innovation in City Theatrical’s 12 years of wireless DMX development and manufacturing. City Theatrical’s SHoW DMX® is the wireless DMX of choice for lighting professionals on Broadway and West End shows, permanent entertainment and architectural installations, major music tours such as the U2 360 Degree Tour, and events like the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremonies. 

SHoW DMX Neo features the extremely high data fidelity that the multi-award winning SHoW DMX is famous for, as well as incredibly fast 7ms latency, ensuring that wired and wireless DMX sources

will appear exactly the same. All SHoW DMX Neo products feature the ability to optimize control of output power, full or limited bandwidth broadcast, and the ability to broadcast less than the full DMX packet to shrink the radio footprint. For users who do not want to manually optimize their broadcast, SHoW DMX Neo products also have Neo Adaptive Mode that will select only open radio channels to broadcast on, with no user intervention needed. All SHoW DMX Neo products will also “heal” lost data packets.

Cognito Lighting Control Console

The Cognito, from Pathway Connectivity, is a small lighting console that is perfect for smaller venues and shows. The Cognito utilizes natural language control and a graphical user interface for lighting programming, producing an environment in which even an inexperienced user can quickly learn to program, while still having the rich features a more experienced programmer expects. 

The Cognito console solves the complex task of programming shows for systems that include incandescent dimmers, moving lights, and color changing LED fixtures. The Cognito is network-ready and features a streamlined user interface to guide you through the 

process of selecting lights, adjusting their attributes, and recording reference libraries, memories, and cues. Once programmed, the show is played back manually or with sequenced playlists. 

The Cognito has up to 1024 output channels with no practical limit on the number of memories, cues, or playlists, and its natural language control uses real world terms and values, not channel numbers and DMX values, making operation intuitive for everyone. The built-in fixture library contains over 1,200 commonly available multi-attribute lights from manufacturers worldwide.  Context sensitive help is available on every screen by just pushing the “Help” button.
