Multiverse® SHoW Baby®

With tens of thousands of units sold since their introduction in 2011, ShoW Baby plug and play transceivers set the standard for ease of use and reliability at an affordable price point. The addition of Multiverse radio technology enhances the performance even more.

City Theatrical’s 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 6 Transceiver, with six user selectable SHoW IDs. By connecting an RDM controller, like DMXcat® Multi Function Test Tool, all of the revolutionary new 2.4GHz Multiverse SHoW IDs are accessible. 

Right out of the box, Multiverse SHoW Baby is fully compatible with all legacy SHoW DMX SHoW Baby® systems. 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.

Title Description
pdf Multiverse SHoW Baby at Kinky Boots at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida The Broward Center for the Performing Arts presents more than 700 performances each year to more than 700,000 patrons. For Kinky Boots at the Broward Center, there are an extensive number of moving lights, LED tape, and practicals throughout the Kinky Boots set, which was rented through Kinky Boots LLC out of New York City for use on the Fort Lauderdale show, such that we needed wireless DMX to be configured and set up to work flawlessly with the lighting system. We had moving lights set up on the balcony, in the air, and lots of battery-operated lights on the scenery. Having the Multiverse SHoW Baby units work with only a little bit of configuring helped us save time and efforts and made the load in and configuration a lot easier than it could have been.
pdf Multiverse SHoW Baby at Balmoral Events Center in Haines City, Florida City Theatrical’s Multiverse SHoW Baby transceivers were used as the wireless DMX solution for the lighting at the new Balmoral Event Center. The technical team from Barbizon Southeast was able to use six Multiverse SHoW Baby units as DMX receivers - one for each wall (four) and one for each tower (two) - and one as a transmitter, which was set up in a closet with the other lighting controllers, to provide wireless DMX control for light fixtures.
pdf Multiverse SHoW Baby at Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story national tour Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy Holly’s meteoric rise to fame. This case study shows why wireless DMX important for Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story national tour as a three-month tour traveling from roadhouse to roadhouse, which often had load ins done during the morning and load outs done after the evening show. Multiverse SHoW Baby wireless DMX helped ease of setup, and the use of wireless DMX was appealing to quickly control our moving light fixtures, Star Drops, and practicals on set. Multiverse SHoW Baby wireless DMX made it easy to set up the lighting at each venue and saved us a lot of time on the road.
