Multiverse® Receiver Card

City Theatrical's Multiverse Receiver Cards are products that any lighting user can use to implement wireless DMX/RDM into entertainment projects or lighting equipment in a simple way. Multiverse Receiver Cards are now available in either the 2.4GHz or 900MHz band through City Theatrical distributors worldwide.

Multiverse Receiver Cards are full Multiverse wireless DMX/RDM receivers without the housing, XLR connectors, and user interface as used in wireless DMX receiving products like the Multiverse Node and Multiverse SHoW Baby. Multiverse Receiver Cards include an internal antenna and a connection to an optional external antenna. Configuration for Multiverse Receiver Cards is done via RDM with DMXcat® Multi Function Test Tool, or with City Theatrical’s USB Configuration Program for PC/Mac.

In addition to receiving wireless DMX and outputting wired DMX, the Multiverse Receiver Card can output 0-10V, and has four PWM control outputs.

While Multiverse Modules require a full circuit board level implementation by professional lighting manufacturers, Multiverse Receiver Cards can be used by any lighting user to implement wireless DMX/RDM into their lighting equipment, whether props, costumes, or lighting fixtures. Multiverse Receiver Cards can be used as part of a full Multiverse wireless DMX/RDM system to connect up to 10 universes of wireless DMX/RDM to a single Multiverse Transmitter. Lighting manufacturers can use the 0-10V and PWM output capabilities to quickly add wireless DMX control to their products.

2.4GHz (for P/N 5906);
900MHz (P/N 5907)

     

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
