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.

“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
"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
“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
“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
“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
“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
"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
