    QolorFLEX® 2x2.5A Multiverse® Dimmer (P/Ns 5916 and 5917): QolorFLEX 2x2.5A Multiverse Dimmers are small, constant voltage, two-output dimmer designed to be mounted in small spaces such as props, costumes, wands, and candles. They can be controlled wirelessly using City Theatrical’s Multiverse or SHoW DMX Neo wireless DMX/RDM technology, or with wired DMX.

    5916 QolorFLEX 2x2.5A Multiverse Dimmer, open and closed

    Similar to City Theatrical's QolorFLEX 5x2.5A Multiverse Dimmers, these dimmers provide 20-bit PWM resolution and four DMX personality options (two variations of 8-bit and 16-bit control) for extremely smooth dimming at the low end of the dimming curve. Configuration is performed using RDM, such as with a City Theatrical DMXcat®, or with City Theatrical’s USB Configuration program for PC/MAC (available on the "Downloads" tab below). 

    A plastic case is included with the QolorFLEX 2x2.5A Multiverse Dimmer to allow easy mounting to scenery while enabling removal of the dimmer from the case for wiring and configuration. These dimmers are designed and built in the USA by City Theatrical, and are available in the 2.4GHz (P/N 5916) or 900MHz (P/N 5917) band.

    Super Bowl LIVE Case Study

    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 

    CBS Case Study

    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

    Blaze Case Study

    Multiverse Wireless DMX/RDM at Hadestown on Broadway
