1. Multiverse® SHoW Baby®

Multiverse SHoW Baby is a wireless DMX transceiver that delivers breakthrough plug and play wireless DMX and RDM transmission. In its default mode, it works like any other SHoW Baby Transceiver, with six user selectable SHoW IDs. By connecting an RDM controller, like DMXcat®, all of the revolutionary new 2.4GHz Multiverse SHoW IDs are accessible. Use it to build new single universe Multiverse systems, or use Multiverse SHoW Baby as a receiver on multiple universe systems with a Multiverse Transmitter.

3. Top Hats

If you walk into any theatre and look up, you'll likely see a City Theatrical Top Hat or some other beam control accessory on every lighting fixture to carefully control light spill. Top Hats were once the only beam control accessory available to designers, but City Theatrical now creates hundreds of varieties of accessories to enhance the performance of many lighting fixtures.
