USA - City Theatrical’s Multiverse wireless DMX/RDM technology is currently being used to provide DMX data for the windmill and carousel lighting features at Historic Hudson Valley’s The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.
After 10 years of working on The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze, the lighting design team from Jay Woods Design chose Multiverse wireless DMX for its ability to broadcast multiple universes of DMX data across an open field to receivers that are in constant motion. With an anticipated total audience of 170,000+, the Multiverse wireless DMX system was also an ideal solution for its ability to have a small radio footprint despite transmitting in a crowded radio spectrum.
“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,” says Jay Woods, owner of Jay Woods Design and Lighting Designer for The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze. “Broadcasting multiple universes from one device means fewer power supplies, a more compact package, and potentially lower wireless DMX costs.” The lighting design team installed four Multiverse SHoW Baby units, two as receivers and two as transmitters, to communicate two universes of DMX data to the windmill design component. The team used one Multiverse Transmitter to transmit DMX data on the 2.4GHz band to four Multiverse SHoW Baby units used as receivers for the four-universe carousel. All receivers were installed within one NEMA enclosure per set piece, hiding them from being seen and protecting them against the outdoor elements. Multiverse wireless DMX/RDM was designed to scale up to unprecedented levels without overpowering the spectrum.
