ETC Distributes City Theatrical SHoW DMX
Posted on Friday, October 12th, 2012
City Theatrical has announced a partnership with Electronic Theatre Controls (ETC) in which ETC will distribute City Theatrical’s full line of SHoW DMX Neo wireless DMX control products, allowing ETC’s customers around the world easy access to wireless DMX for entertainment and architectural lighting applications.
SHoW DMX Neo wireless DMX systems are useful in a wide range of lighting applications such as schools, civic auditoriums, houses of worship, cruise ships, museums, exterior architectural applications, and anywhere else DMX data is needed but the cost or difficulty of installing data cable is high. In some venues, such as historic buildings, wireless DMX is the only way to get DMX data to new high tech LED lighting equipment that requires DMX at the location of the fixture.
City Theatrical has been involved in the development of wireless DMX for over a decade and SHoW DMX products are found on many Broadway and West End shows and tours, as well as on major music tours such as the U2 360 Degree tour, major events such as the Summer Olympics in London, and permanent architectural installations.
The SHoW DMX Neo family offers a range of wireless DMX solutions from the simple plug and play SHoW DMX SHoW Baby to the professional grade SHoW DMX Neo and the outdoor SHoW DMX Vero and Vero Net.
SHoW DMX Neo features high data fidelity and fast 7ms latency, ensuring that wired and wireless DMX sources will appear exactly the same. All SHoW DMX Neo products feature the ability to optimize control of output power, full or limited bandwidth broadcast, and the ability to broadcast less than the full DMX packet to shrink the radio footprint.
For the users who do not want to manually optimize their broadcast, SHoW DMX Neo products also have Neo Adaptive Mode that will select only open radio channels to broadcast on with no user intervention needed. All SHoW DMX Neo products will also “heal” lost data packets.
