W-DMX™ Introduces BlackBox F-2500
Posted on Tuesday, September 7th, 2010
Wireless Solution Sweden AB will be debuting the latest addition to the award-winning W-DMX™ line, the BlackBox F-2500, during PLASA 2010, September 12-15 at Earls Court in London in Stand 1-E43.
The W-DMX™ BlackBox F-2500 is the newest advance in Wireless DMX technology. It’s the world’s first multiple universe unit that can act as 2 Transmitters, 2 Receivers, and 1 Repeater – three functions in one. It’s also the world’s first unit that supports Dual Band of 2.45GHz and 5.8GHz as standard. It carries patent technology for Adaptive Frequency Hopping, Error Correction, and High Fidelity for the most reliable, interference-free signal available.
Bundled with the new W-DMX Bluebox RDM Controller, the F-2500 offers a breadth of control capability. The Bluebox RDM Controller is a PC based DMX and RDM controller for controlling large rigs of RDM enabled products. It allows users to search for any RDM enabled product in a DMX/RDM Network, automatically patch and control the fixture, receive status updates and configure settings such as fixture mode, lamp on/off and more. Bluebox works with the W-DMX™ G4 range and will automatically search for and find any G4 transmitters and RDM enabled G4 receivers. Signal strength and wireless channels are displayed, plus configuration options such as signal power, transmitter/receiver pairing and compatibility modes.
The BlackBox F-2500 together with BlueBox makes for an extremely flexible unit. Users have many functions in one unit (less is more). Before now, it was not possible to get 3 units in a single model to support all standard protocols such as DMX, RDM, Streaming ACN, etc. And with the BlueBox functionality, it provides the world’s first embedded PC solution for both DMX and RDM Control. In addition, the unique RDM function (patent pending) from Wireless Solution makes it possible to Clone units by RDM, remotely access units for service purposes and more.
In addition to the F-2500 and BlueBox, the company will be showing the entire W-DMX™ Generation 4 line in stand 1-E43.
