    Getting Started in Three Steps


    The USB flash drive included with each kit contains the user manual for each product in the kit, software downloads, and other useful information.

    Here are basic steps in setting up a system:

    1. Use the RadioScan Spectrum Analyzer to view the radio activity in the spectrum around you, and choose the area of the spectrum in which you want to broadcast. Use the Multiverse SHoW IDs tab on RadioScan to help choose a SHoW ID.

    2. Enter the SHoW ID you chose into the Multiverse Transmitter or Multiverse Node you are using, and into each Multiverse Studio Receiver.
    3. Enter the universe you are broadcasting, and an optional SHoW Key, into the Multiverse Transmitter or Multiverse Node you are using, and into each Multiverse Studio Receiver.


    For additional information, consult the product manuals of the individual products. They can be found on the USB flash drive in the Multiverse Studio Kit, or on the Downloads tab of each individual product page of this website.

    Features


    - Contactless Charging: The Multiverse Studio Kit has contactless charging in an easy to use kit.

    - Choice of Broadcast Radio: Transmit and receive on either the 2.4GHz band or the 900MHz band for Multiverse Studio Kit P/N 5938. (P/N 5939 includes transmitters and receivers for the 2.4GHz band only.)

    - Long Life Rechargeable Battery Receivers: The six Multiverse Studio Receivers included have 20 hour battery life with default settings.

    - Rugged and Splashproof Receivers: The six Multiverse Studio Receivers included have an IP61 rated plastic case, making them splashproof and rainproof (but not for permanent outdoor use).

    - User Selectable SHoW IDs
    : City Theatrical has always produced wireless DMX products that allow the user to select the optimum transmission method. Users may select full bandwidth hopping, hopping limited to a section of the spectrum (including areas of the spectrum outside of the Wi-Fi range), or adaptive hopping.

    - Adaptive Spread Spectrum Frequency Hopping: Adaptive Spread Spectrum Frequency Hopping identifies and masks off hopping channels that contain interference, replacing them in the hop sequence with alternate channels.

    - Adjustable Output Power: Sometimes an application calls for the most available broadcast power, but many entertainment systems can utilize lower output power to reduce detrimental effects on other radio systems in the venue, reduce reflections, and improve performance. 

    - Ultra Low Latency: Total average system latency of 4ms. 

    - mDMX (Multiverse SHoW IDs only) 

     - mRDM (Multiverse SHoW IDs only) 

    - SHoW Key Security (Multiverse SHoW IDs only)
