The Avolites eDMX system
transfers DMX data across a Wi-Fi radio link - completely removing
the need for DMX data cables
eDMX units are easily addressed and user configured, either as
transmitters or receivers, allowing the fast set up of
“Point-to-Point”, “Point-to-Multipoint” or “Multipoint to
Multipoint” DMX Data Transmission Systems.
Each transmit/receive pair of eDMX units relays data for one DMX
universe at full speed, with ranges of up to 1 Km .
eDMX units can be used as a free-standing device to receive data from
“front of house” consoles, thus feeding all the data into an
existing wired splitter, or it can be attached directly to an
intelligent lighting fixture or a chain of fixtures.
The deployment of eDMX is totally user definable - one per light, one
per pipe or truss, or one just one to overcome the front of house data
eDMX is compact enough to be housed within a moving light fixture,
removing the necessity for any data cable. Once an 802.11 (Wi-Fi)
network is set up, eDMX will automatically locate its data.
eDMX works across multiple networks - each eDMX contains its own unique
addressing protocol and each unit can be set to receive data from a
different universe for multiple universe situations.
eDMX also has a complete inbuilt
Web Server that can be used to view its signal-to-noise ratio, or to
provide manufacturer-specific data from the lamp head across an
The eDMX System was recently used to send wireless DMX to each
individual pod of the London Eye for the capital’s high profile “All
Eyes on London” New Years Eve 2003/04 celebrations.
eDMX was used by LD Gary Collins to stream 33 strings of DMX between the
lighting controller and lighting fixtures located in each of the London
Eye’s 32 capsules and around its pontoon base.
It was also used to send data to LED Batons around the hotel at the
recent Total Production International Awards dinner.
Avolites Sales Director Steve Warren says, “There’s been huge
interest in wireless DMX systems from rental companies, theme parks,
events companies and theatrical productions. eDMX allows us to send
lighting data to anything, anywhere, from carnival floats to moving
stage sets or to the top of buildings and monuments!”.
