Larger lighting setups with cable runs of more than 200m, more than 20 DMX receiving devices or strong electronical interference can experience data losses although quality cable are being used and the DMX lines are terminated.
For decentralised DMX networks, the MA NSP (Network Signal Processor) converts the incoming Ethernet data into DMX512-A data. For data conversion, two Ethernet protocols are supported: MA-Net and Art-Net.
The Bluebox RDM Controller is the industry’s first PC based intelligent, integrated DMX and RDM controller. Built from the ground up specifically for controlling large rigs of RDM enabled products, the Bluebox RDM controller allows users to search for any RDM enabled product in a DMX/RDM Network, automatically patch the fixture, and control the fixture, as well as receive status updates on the fixture and configure settings such as fixture mode, lamp on/off and more. This makes the Bluebox RDM controller perfect for quick setup and programming of DJ and live event rigs (much quicker than an equivalent DMX console due to the fast automation that RDM allows for), and is ideal for autonomous monitoring of large-scale lighting installations in architectural environments.
The W-DMX™ dongle is our ideal tool for configuring W-DMX™ units (both G3 and G4), when the full power of the W-DMX™ BlueBox RDM is not required. Channels in use can be manually configured (bypassing the AFHSS technology), and output power can be reconfigured quickly and easily.
The Micro series of transceivers and receivers are the most compact W-DMX™ products available on the market today. Micro products are built into a slim-line casing, with mounting options for any conceivable location or to practically any type of structure encountered in the entertainment and architectural lighting business, the Micro series is perfect for smaller events, or where space is a problem, such as inside trucked scenery, set pieces or in difficult to reach corners.
The W-DMX™ ProBox F-2500 is our top of the line, 2 universe transmitter/receiver and 1 universe Repeater, all in a single box 19” Rack unit. Built in a 1U case, the unit comes with ample connectors on the front and the back, and has built in support of Ethernet lighting protocols, including Art-Net and Streaming ACN. The ProBox F-2500 is designed for the large scale touring and rental market, as well as the installation market.
The UglyBox is hailed as the ‘riggers best friend’, an indispensible tool in the lighting designer or technician’s arsenal. With the capability to receive W-DMX™ signals to check their signal strength, as well as check the output of DMX channels, the W-DMX™ UglyBox is great for testing the limits of the W-DMX™ radio system and/or checking DMX data, in a portable, pocket sized device.
