    City Theatrical’s
    Multiverse® Studio Receiver brings the advanced features of the Multiverse wireless DMX/RDM system to the film and video world, where fast setup and reliability are key objectives. The weather resistant Multiverse Studio Receiver contains a long-life lithium-ion polymer battery giving 20 hours of use. The Multiverse Studio Receiver has a full four button user interface with a backlit LED display that makes setup easy and gives feedback on system performance. Its case is IP61 rated plastic, making it splashproof and rainproof (but not for permanent outdoor use).


    The DMX corded connector allows the Multiverse Studio Receiver and external antenna to hang below the lighting fixture, giving improved data fidelity.



    Multiverse Studio Receiver models include:


    The Multiverse Studio Receiver 900MHz/2.4GHz (P/N 5904) contains two built-in radios, 2.4GHz (for worldwide use) and 900MHz (for use in the Americas only), which allow the user to select which single universe to receive, and which radio band to use via the Multiverse SHoW ID. (The 900MHz band is licensed for use in North America.)

    The Multiverse Studio Receiver 2.4GHz (P/N 5905) contains a 2.4GHz radio, and allows the user to select which single universe to receive, and which radio band to use via the Multiverse SHoW ID. This model can be used worldwide.

    Features


    - Choice of Broadcast Radio: Transmit and receive on either the 2.4GHz band or the 900MHz band. (P/N 5905 transmits and receives on the 2.4GHz band only.)

    - Long Life Rechargeable Battery: 20 hour battery life with default settings

    - Rugged and Splashproof: An IP61 rated plastic case, making it 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)

    “If I could, everything would come in and be attached to a Multiverse Studio Receiver. Having that interactive screen on your device… I can see the radio signal, universe, and everything I need to know if I need to assess something quickly. All of that control at the electrician’s level has been a gamechanger. All the guys love it, and they reach for it.”
