W-DMX by Wireless Solution Sweden AB will be showing the latest products in the W-DMX G4 range during PLASA Focus in Austin, Texas, February 22-23 at the Renaissance Austin, in the A.C.T. Lighting booth 123. New products on display include the ProBox F-2500 G4, the BlackBox G4 MK2 and the BlueBox RDM Controller.
The ProBox F-2500 G4 is the flagship of the W-DMX range of products. It includes all the features that even the most demanding user of wireless lighting control needs. ProBox F-2500 is a transceiver solution with three functions in one. It is capable of transmitting or receiving 2 DMX universes with support of RDM and Ethernet protocols like Art-Net II/III and s/ACN. In addition, the unit is also a 1 DMX universe repeater with a built in RDM controller that supports 1 universe with RDM over DMX or Ethernet. In addition, the ProBox F-2500 G4 also contains a built in RDM controller (BlueBox), all packed inside a 19” rack unit that supports both 3-Pin and 5-Pin XLR, Powercon and Ethercon connector, plus all of the standard G4 features.
The BlackBox G4 MK2 is the new and updated version of the industry standard of wireless lighting control for installation and rental applications. The company spent months listening to feedback from clients all around the world and consulted with lighting designers, rental companies, stage managers, production managers and service departments to collect the most important feedback to generate the most professional wireless product on the market. The MK2 has an advanced aluminum mould in a heavy-duty design that will be robust enough for long-term use.
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.
Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution says, “We’re really excited to be part of the first PLASA Focus in Austin and we’re proud to be part of the A.C.T. Lighting lineup. They offer fantastic support of the W-DMX product range and been one of our best distributors. It should be a successful show, and I hear the barbeque in Austin is great!”
