Multiverse® Module

Designed for OEM Partners

City Theatrical's 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** and 2.4GHz. 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 are available on reels for surface mounting. The OEM Implementation Kit includes a detailed guide, equipment, test gear and more. Learn more: OEM Manufacturing Guide.

Ideal User

 

Lighting manufacturers with engineering capacity, or highly skilled specialty shops

 

Anyone who wants to implement wireless DMX/RDM into a product or project

     

Skill Level

 

Circuit board design and programming skills required

 

No special engineering or programming skills to implement; basic hand soldering skills only

     

RDM

 

Allows RDM integration of entities so Multiverse RDM information appears together with fixture RDM information

 

RDM of device and Multiverse Receiver Card appear as two separate entities

     

Outputs

 

DMX/RDM

 

DMX/RDM, 0-10V, and four PWM control outputs

     

Availability

 

Sold directly from City Theatrical after signing a City Theatrical Multiverse OEM License Agreement

 

Sold through any City Theatrical dealer

     

Work Required

 

Requires design and engineering work up front, but very little work in production (surface mount part)

 

Requires no work up front but some work to install each unit (hand soldering and possibly remoting of indicator lights, depending on your application)

     

Cost

 

Requires purchase of OEM development kit ($1,000); per piece cost varies from $60 for one piece to under $20 for quantities of multiple thousands

 

List price $250 each which declines as volume increases. End users contact your City Theatrical dealer for details. Manufacturers call City Theatrical for quantity pricing.

     

Best Choice if:

 

High volume use is anticipated

 

Low volume use is anticipated
