QolorFLEX® 5x2.5A Multiverse® Dimmer

City Theatrical's QolorFLEX® 5x2.5A Multiverse® Dimmer (P/Ns 5942 and 5943) is a constant voltage, five-output dimmer that can be controlled wirelessly using City Theatrical’s Multiverse wireless DMX/RDM* or SHoW DMX Neo wireless DMX/RDM technology, or with wired DMX. This dimmer provides 20-bit PWM resolution and six DMX personality options (including: 8-bit (5ch), 16-bit (10ch), 8-bit Tunable White Single (2ch), 16-bit Tunable White Single (4ch), 8-bit Tunable White (4ch), and 16-bit Tunable White (8ch)) for extremely smooth dimming at the low end of the dimming curve. It uses detachable input and output connectors to make wiring easy.

Configuration is performed using RDM, such as with a City Theatrical DMXcat®, or with City Theatrical’s USB Configuration program for PC/Mac. A mounting bracket is included with the Dimmer to allow easy mounting to scenery. This dimmer is designed and built in the USA by City Theatrical. It pairs perfectly with QolorFLEX 5-in-1 LED Tape for ideal use in props and costumes, or for areas where space is a concern.

Title Description
.pdf QolorFLEX LED Tape and Multiverse Wireless DMX Dimming Control at Peery’s Egyptian Theater in Ogden, Utah The team used 23 QolorFLEX 5x2.5A Multiverse 900MHz/2.4GHz Dimmers and one Multiverse Transmitter 900MHz/2.4GHz to provide wireless DMX dimming control for 8 reels of QolorFLEX 5-in-1 LED Tape in RGB + Amber + Warm White, which were installed over custom harnesses, to realize their vision of wirelessly controlled LED accent lighting throughout the theater.
.pdf QolorFLEX and Multiverse at The Joyce Theater in NYC The Joyce Theater’s leadership was looking to update their theater’s lighting using LED tape to gain brightness, efficiencies, and a clean, modern look for their upcoming Fall 2021 season, which included an exciting lineup of dance performances following the closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic (and it was an ideal time since they also chose to replace all of their seats; a fresh look for the whole theater). They were looking for an LED tape solution to replace the fluorescent tubes that existed in the lobby coves, incandescent rope light in the coves under the loge seating areas, and many incandescent tube bulbs (40w) that were originally installed to light the fascia/facing within the theater. The ideal solution would even out the amount of light and color temperature in the theater, while also reducing the power consumption.
