Need help getting started? The USB flash drive included with each kit contains the user manual for each product in the kit, software downloads, and other useful information. Here are the three basic steps involved in setting up a system:
1. Use the RadioScan Spectrum Analyzer to view the radio activity in the spectrum around you, and choose the area of the spectrum in which you want to broadcast. Use the Multiverse SHoW IDs tab on RadioScan to help choose a SHoW ID.
2. Enter the SHoW ID you chose into the Multiverse Transmitter or Multiverse Node you are using, and into each Multiverse Studio Receiver.
3. Enter the universe you are broadcasting, and an optional SHoW Key, into the Multiverse Transmitter or Multiverse Node you are using, and into each Multiverse Studio Receiver.

“The Multiverse Studio Kit was just what we needed. The setup and connectivity was fast and easy. We had all 6 receivers working on many of our lighting setups with zero connection fails all season.”
- Carlos M. Torres, Chief Lighting Technician, Everything's Gonna Be Okay
|Multiverse Studio Wireless DMX for Season II of the CBS original television series, The Unicorn||
“If I could, everything would come in and be attached to a Multiverse Studio Receiver. Having that interactive screen on your device… I can see the radio signal, universe, and everything I need to know if I need to assess something quickly. All of that control at the electrician’s level has been a gamechanger. All the guys love it, and they reach for it.”
- Justin Stroh, Chief Lighting Technician, The Unicorn

“To credit the Multiverse design, it’s as simple to change as changing a SHoW ID. Getting familiar with the Kit was simple.”
- Neil Bestwick, Lighting Designer, Energy Arts LLC, on studio for corporate web series installation project in Redmond, Washington
When lighting designer Neil Bestwick was looking to create a permanent installation for two adjacent web studios which were only 20 feet apart within an active R&D facility, he knew he needed reliable gear to broadcast wireless DMX without interference from one studio to the other, with the option of using the 900MHz band to reduce interference from Wi-Fi traffic on the 2.4GHz band going forward. He used City Theatrical's Multiverse® Studio Kit 900MHz/2.4GHz to achieve this goal, which included all the tools he needed for a successful long term wireless DMX broadcast as well as useful tools like the RadioScan® Spectrum Analyzer for broadcast planning and DMXcat® Multi Function Test Tool for troubleshooting.

“Being on location makes everything more complicated. The ability to sign into any Multiverse wireless DMX device with my smartphone’s DMXcat app and check responses was unbelievably cool and deeply reassuring. We used everything in the Multiverse Studio Kit and the contactless charging was phenomenal.”
- Mark LaPierre, Programmer, End of the Road
Netflix's End of the Road is a high-octane action thriller based in New Mexico. Lighting team members included Director of Photography Ed Wu, Chief Lighting Technician Lamarr “Gooch” Gray, Assistant Chief Lighting Technician Dwayne Willis, and Programmer Mark LaPierre, with lighting package the MBS Group. One Multiverse® Studio Kit and an additional Multiverse Node transceiver were used to provide wireless DMX/RDM for various on location shoots in the desert over two months. Find out how their 900MHz Multiverse wireless DMX solution helped them achieve 1,000-foot range broadcasts over mines, broadcast through glass and metal windows, and overcome extreme temperatures and traffic on the 2.4GHz band, in this City Theatrical case study Q&A with Mark LaPierre.
