Multiverse® Transmitter

 

City Theatrical's Multiverse® Transmitter opens a new world in wireless DMX/RDM. Its Ethernet input allows it to take in Streaming ACN (sACN) or Art-Net and to transmit between eight and 10 user-selectable universes of DMX/RDM, depending on the type of Multiverse Transmitter product used, with the ability to use less radio energy than a present day single universe wireless DMX transmitter.

The Multiverse Transmitter has a Bluetooth radio receiver built in that allows it to communicate with City Theatrical’s DMXcat® app from the user’s smartphone. This gives the user smartphone control of any lighting fixture that is part of the Multiverse setup, whether it is a lighting fixture with a Multiverse Module inside, a lighting fixture receiving its data from a Multiverse SHoW Baby or Multiverse Node, or any wired fixture downstream of those devices. 

The Multiverse Transmitter is Wi-Fi enabled, allowing for communication and control from tablet based Wi-Fi lighting controllers like Luminair.

Title Description
.pdf QolorFLEX 5-in-1 LED Tape, QolorFLEX 5x2.5A Multiverse Dimmers, Multiverse wireless DMX and Custom Manufacturing for Peery's Egyptian Theater in Ogden, Utah

“In the opinion of much of the team taking on this project, City Theatrical is the industry leader of wireless DMX. Our prior experience using SHoW Baby devices has shown reliability and responsive wireless DMX, and dual band Multiverse technology was our perfect solution for this installation.”
- Hayden Wadsworth, Theater Technical Lead, Peery’s Egyptian Theater

.pdf Multiverse Wireless DMX/RDM at The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze "With the Multiverse Transmitter, we were able to focus on setting up and talking to a single device, as opposed to setting up multiple devices. Broadcasting multiple universes from one device means fewer power supplies, a more compact package, and potentially lower wireless DMX costs."
- Jay Woods, Lighting Designer, The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor
.pdf RadioScan Spectrum Analyzer at Company Broadway
“This RadioScan setup has been a game changer for us. Now we can easily put the antenna where it needs to be, to see what is happening close to the transmitters and receivers. Before, we were only able to see what was happening in the booth, not where the real action is on stage.” - Kevin Barry, Production Electrician
.pdf QolorFLEX LED Tape and Multiverse wireless DMX Lobby and Loge Installation The Joyce Theater, New York, NY

“Multiverse wireless DMX is being used in the auditorium to control the QolorFLEX LED Tape in locations that we cannot pull new DMX wiring to, like the fascia/facing of our loge areas. There is a single QolorFLEX 5x2.5A Multiverse Dimmer in each location that allows us to control the new QolorFLEX Warm White LED Tape from our main lighting console.”

- Jeff Segal, Director of Production, The Joyce Theater Foundation, Inc

.pdf Multiverse Wireless DMX/RDM at Super Bowl LIVE in Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida “Multiverse worked great for us. When starting to design this show, Multiverse was the best option for us to get data around Bayfront Park. It made our load in process much quicker as well.”
- John Fitzgerald, Lead Field Technician, Dynamic Productions USA
.pdf Multiverse Wireless DMX/RDM at CBS Evening News with Norah O'Donnell “Multiverse has been bulletproof for us. It helped us avoid all the cable discussions. It requires very little power. The user interface on the Multiverse Nodes and DMXcat made setup very simple for us.”
- Lonnie Juli, Lighting Designer 
.pdf Multiverse Wireless DMX/RDM at Hadestown on Broadway "Getting set up with Multiverse was unbelievably good. Communication with City Theatrical never stopped. If things changed, Multiverse changed with us. It has been very successful for our show." 
- Justin Freeman, Production Electrician, Hadestown
