Wireless DMX Challenges

A sample real-life crowded radio spectrum.

 
What is Wireless DMX?


Simply stated, wireless DMX is a way of getting DMX data from “point A to point B” without using cable. DMX cable and the labor to install it are expensive, and using wireless DMX can save time and money as well as allowing DMX data to be run to places that cable can’t reach, such as across a river, a highway, or to the top of a tall building.

If you are in the field of entertainment technology you are familiar with DMX. (The official terminology is DMX512-A but I’ll refer to it in its common usage in this paper, DMX.) DMX is the communications protocol that was created by the entertainment industry in order to have a common language for lighting controllers to speak to lighting devices such as dimmers or color scrollers. It enables any lighting controller from any manufacturer to communicate with any lighting device from any other manufacturer. (Read more in our White Paper: What You Need To Know About Wireless DMX.)

Challenges Of Wireless DMX

All previous wireless DMX control systems have suffered from a basic limitation: they are only able to transmit and receive a few universes of DMX data before their radio energy overpowers the spectrum and prevents their signals, and the signals of other devices in the venue, from accomplishing their mission.

With this constraint, large scale multiple universe wireless systems simply have not been possible to achieve. In addition, the broadcast spectrum in which DMX systems operate has become overcrowded with other radio signals, causing additional interference issues.

Faced with these challenges, City Theatrical began planning a new system of wireless lighting control that could be scaled up to unprecedented levels without overpowering the spectrum.

Multiverse Modules for OEM Partners        
    

 
The Solution: Multiverse Module


Multiverse marks the fifth generation of City Theatrical's engineering development for wireless DMX, with the mission of being able to deliver more data using less radio energy. To do this, we reimagined wireless DMX altogether, and discovered that we could reduce the amount of radio energy used for wireless DMX by more than 90% with an innovative new radio and by improving how we broadcast.


 5995 Multiverse Module   We achieved our goal of more data using less radio energy with the creation of our Multiverse Module. Multiverse Modules are the embodiment of breakthrough Multiverse technology, and every product in the Multiverse wireless DMX system is built around these tiny circuit board mounted devices.

Using these new radios, Multiverse products can deliver much more DMX data while producing much less disruptive radio energy.

 


Designed For OEM Partners


Multiverse Modules are best suited for lighting equipment manufacturers who are interested in adding wireless DMX to their products. Due to low cost, increased data transport, and ease of design integration, the Multiverse Module marks the first time that the implementation of a wireless DMX chip in every DMX device is possible.

The Multiverse Module is available in two frequency ranges, 900MHz (for use in the Americas) and 2.4GHz (for use worldwide). Each frequency version can include a PCB trace antenna or not. All versions have a U.FL connector to connect to an external antenna.

OEM Implementation

Multiverse Modules (Part Numbers: 5990, 5991, 5994, and 5995) are available on reels for surface mounting. The OEM Implementation Kit includes a detailed guide, equipment, test gear, and more. Contact City Theatrical for more information.







 Lighting&Sound International Tech Review on Multiverse by Richard Cadena
"Another component of the Multiverse family that is really interesting is the Multiverse Module, an integrated circuit chip that manufacturers use to integrate wireless DMX into their fixtures. It’s inexpensive enough that it’s likely to become ubiquitous. The wireless revolution will not be televised, but it will be broadcast, and it’s now underway. Stay tuned..."

Easily Visualize Radio Energy and Create Broadcast Plans      

RadioScan Spectrum Analyzer is a 900MHz and 2.4GHz spectrum analyzer (includes a RadioScan hardware dongle and accompanying free RadioScan software) that enables you to easily visualize radio energy that is otherwise invisible to you. Using RadioScan helps you to create a broadcast plan that optimizes available spectrum in your area, and helps prevent interference with other mission critical radio devices near you.

RadioScan shows all radio activity near you in your chosen frequency, including frequency hopping gear like wireless DMX, as well as Wi-Fi networks, Bluetooth, wireless headsets, video transmitters, cordless phones, baby monitors, and microwave ovens. RadioScan can view spectrum data either in Spectrogram View or Waterfall View, and snapshots can be taken of both in the program. Scans of any length can be recorded, saved, emailed and played back with the RadioScan software, without the need for the RadioScan hardware dongle.

For users of Multiverse® wireless DMX/RDM products, RadioScan will guide you in creating the optimum broadcast plan for your production.
