    QolorFLEX® 5x2.5A Multiverse® Dimmer (P/Ns 5942 and 5943): The QolorFLEX 5x2.5A Multiverse Dimmer is a constant voltage, five-output dimmer that can be controlled wirelessly using City Theatrical’s Multiverse wireless DMX* or SHoW DMX Neo wireless DMX/RDM technology, or with wired DMX. This dimmer provides 20-bit PWM resolution and 8-bit or 16-bit control for extremely smooth dimming at the low end of the dimming curve. It uses detachable input and output connectors to make wiring easy. Configuration is performed using RDM, such as with a City Theatrical DMXcat®, or with City Theatrical’s USB Configuration program for PC/Mac. A mounting bracket is included with the Dimmer to allow easy mounting to scenery. This dimmer is designed and built in the USA by City Theatrical. It pairs perfectly with QolorFLEX 5-in-1 LED Tape for ideal use in props and costumes, or for areas where space is a concern.

    Multiverse SHoW Baby Wireless DMX at the Balmoral Resort in Haines City, Florida

    “Multiverse has become our go to for wireless DMX for its reliability, price point, and ease of use. We’ve found Multiverse has become just as reliable as a wired system.”
    - Jeremy Gates, Lead Field Technician, Barbizon Southeast

    Balmoral Resort Florida Case Study

    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

    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

    "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
