W-DMX™ made a standard in Chile

Posted on: April 21st, 2017 by David Ferraz

In early January, the International Theatre Festival of Santiago de Chile did his annual aperture, in a joint production between two artistic groups, La Potagallina and Matucana 100. The first group – under artistic direction of Martin Erazo – developed a multicultural staging called “Sin Fronteras” (“Without Borders”), where actors from different nationalities called for the integration of Latin American people from all territories.

Lighting Designer Erasmo Cubillos was tasked to light the front of the Government Palace of Chile and the staging “Sin Fronteras”, a truck carrying the musicians, and several classic cars parading with many actors.

Four WhiteBox F-1 G4S Wireless DMX transceivers were used in these show, receiving data from another WhiteBox F-1 transceiver. Each of the four cars had several LED PARs, running lighting chases, contracting with the palace in the background.

The show was assisted by Julian Vivas and Francisco Valdivia, an experienced W-DMX™ user – “The systems from Wireless Solution are incredibly easy to use, and 100% reliable – we would never choose any other”, said Francisco.

The show also featured equipment from Avolites, Claypaky Sharpy and B-Eye K10 fixtures, in a collaborative work with Iluminación Chile, Icardi and Luzmila Chile.

Wireless Solution supports students from USW

Posted on: April 13th, 2017 by David Ferraz

The Swedish manufacturer of W-DMX™ has recently supported the students of University of South Wales in the UK, completing BSc. degrees in Live Event and Lighting Design. Wireless Solution provided Wireless technology to the final year students that wanted to integrate W-DMX™ into their final-year projects.

The USW degrees encourage students to create a lighting fixture that could be commercialized – this includes specifying, designing and creating a product prototype, before presenting it in a trade-show environment, along with other engineering students.

Flare – the featured product with W-DMX™ – was created by Charlie LaPage Norris, Oliver Jenni, Pedro Socias and Matt Didon, all final students from USW. The fixture includes a variable white LED source with an RGB backlight system, able to be pixel-mapped and with a Wireless Solution receiver as standard. Matt commented: “W-DMX™ was an invaluable asset to our project giving us the flexibility to expand operating ability. Integrating the OEM hardware provided was straightforward and we could not be more appreciative of Wireless Solution’s support“.

Incorporating Wireless DMX into our product brought Flare onto a whole new level above many existing fixtures on the market“, added Carlie LaPage Norris. “It increased the product’s capabilities and allowed us to target our fast-install target market far more successfully than would have been possible without this feature. In particular Wireless Solution’s W-DMX™ was the perfect answer for us due to how easy it was to incorporate the OEM hardware into Flare and the customer service we received which excelled expectations.”

Last year, Wireless Solution sponsored two students to be alongside the company at Light and Building and Prolight and Sound trade-shows, both in Frankfurt. This year, Wireless Solution provided the same sponsorship to student David Howard, currently doing a placement year at Enlightened Lighting in Bristol.

Stuart Green, course leader at University of South Wales, commented: “In the world we now live in an understanding of science and technology more important than ever. The support from Wireless Solution has enabled students to develop product and knowledge that will be invaluable as they enter the industry.

Wireless Solution is a strong supporter of the new Wireless generation: “I remember picking up one of our ‘Cable Sucks’ pin at a trade-show, when I was studying”, said David Ferraz, International Business Development Manager for Wireless Solution. “I still have it today. The strong impact our products have among younger technicians and designers is incredible – it makes them come up with brilliant ideas for outstanding lighting and product designs. Finding these projects makes my job even more enjoyable!”, David added.

W-DMX™ extravaganza down under

Posted on: March 20th, 2017 by David Ferraz

Aussie lighting specialists Resolution X, a company based in Melbourne and Sydney with an impressive track-record of high-profile production services, has recently supplied White Night Melbourne with lighting and rigging services. White Night is an outdoor art festival that attracts over 500,000 attendees each year.

The team deployed over 25 W-DMX™ transceivers and receivers over the White Night weekend through several spaces, from the Royal Exhibition Building (R.E.B.) and surrounding gardens. “Our control position was at the heart of the Carlton Gardens, where we had our new compact GrandMA onPC command wing Systems , running two separate W-DMX™ networks, each with a BlackBox F-1 G4S transceiver, and an 19dBi directional antenna”, commented Mark Hopkins, of Resolution X.

The first receiving point was 80 meters away, on a roof, feeding DMX to IP64 ShowPro Quad PARs, Claypaky Mythos and Sharpys. “The second system was the more impressive one” added Mark. “We placed 40 ShowPro Hercules, our battery-powered LED wash fixtures, lighting the trees along the path through Carlton Gardens and up the R.E.B. The system worked flawlessly over the 200+ meters, even with the antennae at only 1.8 meters high, and thousands of attendees all on their phones, creating a lot of noise in the 2.4GHz spectrum”.

In total, the team used a combination of BlackBox F-1 G4S transceivers, BlackBox F-2, and Micro R-512 G4S series, in a combination of transmitting and receiving to multiple locations, all interference and latency-free.

We wanted to test how far we could go wirelessly, so we took a Hercules fixture and walked over 500 meters, without losing a frame”, Mark commented.

W-DMX™ is a de-facto standard for Wireless DMX technology, with over 400,000 radio cards shipped worldwide, and an impressive track-record of reliability, used by artists worldwide like Adele, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, and used in theatre productions like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Dreamgirls, and many more. Wireless Solution is distributed and supported in Australia by Show Technology, a market leader in its segment.

LasermanCZ performs with W-DMX™

Posted on: February 28th, 2017 by David Ferraz

After debuting his show at the Czech Got Talent in 2012, Richard Mach launched his career as LasermanCZ, an interactive laser-show, that combines laser projection and performance, with a full-body LED suit and a well choreographed story-line. Richard has been touring ever since, making appearances in several events and corporate parties, not just in Czech Republic but through the world.

The routine varies, and has even featured more than one performer – the performance stands out when Richard alternates between the lights in his suit, and a clone of his silhouette made by laser beams, often in similar or contrasting colours.

Behind the scenes, Richard uses a W-DMX™ Micro R-512 G4S receiver, that controls the DMX of the LEDs, receiving data from a W-DMX™ Micro R-1 G4S transceiver. “Usually we place the transmitter on-stage or behind the projection net”, commented Mach. “The most challenging situation until now only took the transmitter 30 meters away from the performance area, but even then it worked great!”, he added.

There are five separate control areas: head, hands, body, legs and hand lasers, all wirelessly controlled. “When we looked at equipment, we got very good references of W-DMX™ – so we decided to go with it. We went for a reputable brand, despite any cost difference from alternatives, to guarantee a 100% reliable connection”, said Richard.

The laser effects are created with Pangolin LD2000, with new projects being prepared in Pangolin Beyond software, often projecting on Kvant Atom 1,5W RGB or, for bigger spaces, on Kvant ClubMax 6W RGB lasers.

St. Petersburg’s cathedral connected with W-DMX™

Posted on: January 27th, 2017 by David Ferraz

St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St Petersburg, in Russia, has recently taken W-DMX™ in a revamp of the lighting and control systems of the space. The project was assigned to Candela, a local installation company, who completed the job in the end of 2016.

Designed by August Montferrand in mid-19th century, the space is a testament of Neo-Classicism, and of truly amazing painting, sculpture and mosaics. The engineers responsible for the refurbishment decided not to use any signal cable – as it would stand out from the iconic architecture – and use Micro G4S transceiver and receivers instead, making the whole installation completely wireless.

The project featured (1) Micro F-1 G4S transceiver and (5) Micro R-512 G4S receivers, located on the colonnades and central dome, receiving Wireless DMX data to control the lighting status across the cathedral, including wall washing, and spotting on central lusters. The distance between the transmitter and the furthest receiver was 50 meters. “As we were dealing with an important cultural monument, cable was not allowed in the installation”, said the Technical Project Manager at Candela, also adding: “we had a great chance to reduce the amount of cable at a great cost, with superb reliability”.

Wireless Solution Sweden is represented in Russia by Imlight Showtechnic. Vitaly Balandin, manager of ProLight department, commented: “Imlight is an ambassador for W-DMX™ in Russia. We believe in their high reliability, and love the versatility of their devices, as well as their compatibility with products from Clay Paky, DTS, Silver Star, Studio Due and many other brands that we also champion in Russia”.

Climate-driven lighting installation uses W-DMX™

Posted on: January 20th, 2017 by David Ferraz

As 2016 wrapped up, a new installation in Otta – Norway was erected, creating a new landmark that visualizes a pioneering climate research for students at the local high school.

Pekka Stokke, the visual artist behind the design, programing and execution, created an installation of 40 RGB LED tubes, architectural RGBWA LED washes and an illuminated metal ring that can reproduce over 4 million looks, depending on data pulled from the Climate Lab (Klimalab.no). The installation uses data like wind speed, temperature, atmospheric conditions and many others.

Part of the challenge during planning stages was to get DMX data to the piece, installed on a 46-meter-high grain silo. “Choosing W-DMX™ WhiteBox F-1 transceivers with external 12dBi antennas was a no-brainer for us”, commented Stokke. “We had used a bunch of them before, and never had any trouble. They just work.”

In the end, the WhiteBox F-1 G4S transmitter was set up 200 meters away from the landmark, sending the real-time data to another WhiteBox F-1 G4S receiver mounted flat on the wall with an Outdoor 12 antenna.”

It took more time opening the rusted old door to the roof than it took to have the Wireless DMX up and running. The installation has to fight strong winds and heavy rain/snow, and the wireless has to deliver a strong clean signal on a building that houses cell towers from several mobile service providers, emergency network antennas, broadband Wi-Fi antennas and other communication equipment. W-DMX™ by Wireless Solution Sweden never fails to impress”, added Pekka.

The project featured other highly regarded products from Martin Professional, Visual Productions BV, Artistic License, Enttec and many others, that delivered an impressive landmark that combines lighting control with intelligent data, with the purpose of climate change awareness.

Wisconsin Gas Building takes W-DMX™

Posted on: December 27th, 2016 by David Ferraz

One of Milwaukee’s most famous buildings got a face-lift with a brand-new lighting refit and smart control, responsive to the weather conditions – the iconic gas flame, that was added in 1956, indicates the weather forecast by its color and flicker. This weather beacon was turned off in 1973 because of that year’s energy crisis, but turned back on in 1985 – it has now been updated with an incredible LED system that lights up the entire building. MainStage, a US-based theatrical supplier and integrator, was responsible for this project.

The original neon lighting inside the iconic Flame sculpture was replaced with all-new LED new lighting fixtures consisting of 36 – Color Kinetics ColorGraze MX4 fixtures. In addition to the flame centerpiece, over 150 Chauvet Colorado fixtures were used provide colored accent lighting for the main building structure.

The majority of control distribution is achieved by using a combination of Wireless Solution’s WhiteBox F-1 G4S transceivers – a total of 20 units send data wirelessly to several points of the building. A total of (16) Outdoor 12 directional antennas and (4) Outdoor 8 omni-directional antennas were used – the maximum distance transmitter was 170ft. “Due to the high-traffic of other wireless networks, the use of directional antennas was recommended, enabling our receivers to bypass any noise from the surroundings”, said Tripp Oliver, Systems & Design Manager for MainStage.

When asked about the use of equipment, Oliver said: “Wireless DMX was used due to the difficulty in getting wire from the control rack on the 20th floor down to the lighting on floors 3 – 17. The building was built in the late 20’s, and getting wire down from the top and then out to the fixtures on each floor was going to cost a considerable amount of money. W-DMX™ was specifically chosen due to the hearty nature of the product and the large temperature range in which it will operate.”

The system also includes equipment from Pathway Connectivity and is controlled via an ETC Mosaic system, which allows for both automated and direct control of the entire system, 24/7.

Wireless Solution Sweden is distributed and supported by TMB in the USA.

Estonian Drama School performs with W-DMX™

Posted on: December 15th, 2016 by David Ferraz

The Estonian Drama School have recently renewed their lighting equipment, and a part of the new investment included Wireless DMX equipment from Wireless Solution.

The school invested in 2x Micro F-1 Lite G4S units and 10x Micro R-512 Lite G4S in order to feed data to the new equipment fitted in places without any cabling infrastructure – this saved a lot of time and money as the school didn’t have to renovate the theatre space in the middle of learning period. Furthermore, as the building is almost 800 years old and located in the middle of the old town and under strict heritage legislation, the permission for such works would take a long time to get approved and would result in an immense cost to the institution.

Kalle Karindi, Director of Estonian dealer Focuspoint, commented: “This is a great example of how Wireless DMX can save a lot of money to any institution: the deployment time is minimum and the results are outstanding – the money saved here allowed the school to make other well-needed investments such like new ellipsoidals and moving-heads. Wireless Solution created a great product for applications like this one!”.

Wireless Solution Sweden are the market-leader for reliable Wireless DMX technology, and actively represented in over 60 countries.

W-DMX™ provides connection in the Mauritius Island

Posted on: December 12th, 2016 by David Ferraz

The annual festival of contemporary culture has taken place one again in Port Louis – Mauritius, and local AV company Impact Production Group was commissioned to handle the audiovisual needs to make the event happen.

The majority of the event took place outdoors, starting at The Port, down to the Place D’Armes to the Company Garden – in total, the lighting team would have to deploy equipment in 9 buildings and 2 green spaces for 3 evenings – Emanuel Blais, Technical Manager for IPG, was tasked to create a technical plan: “We knew that it would be a challenge, but nothing is impossible – we decided to control the remote locations wirelessly, with W-DMX™. This saved us a total of 1,200 meters of cables through the streets, saving us an enormous time for programming the sequences”.

Emanuel – with no experience in using Wireless DMX – came to Wireless Solution for advice, and together with the W-DMX™ technical team, came up with a solution. “We decided to specify our BlackBox F-2 and F-1 units, to control 5 universes wirelessly”, said David Ferraz, International Business Development Manager for Wireless Solution.

In total, 4x BlackBox F-2 and 2x BlackBox F-1 units were used, along with Panel 8/10 antennas and one W-DMX™ dongle. “Having directionality in this setup was vital, as the organisers were expecting over 300,000 people over three days. This way we wouldn’t disturb any other wireless networks, and guarantee a reliable signal to our receivers”, commented David. The furthest building was located 200 meters away from the control point, with two BlackBox F-2 and one BlackBox F-1 working as transmitters from FOH. “This enabled us to move the console around and program wirelessly”, said Blais, who also added: “We tried going to a maximum of 400 meters – the system worked as if we hadn’t moved!”.

The kit supplied included 370 LED Pars, 13 Robe BMFL heads, 36 Claypaky Sharpy, 1 GrandMA2 Light, over 7km of wiring and a total of 15 buildings lit – “Wireless DMX was indispensable, as we would never had been able to reach some of the places where we had equipment”, said Emanuel Blais. “I liked how quick it was to link the boxes, and how well it worked. Many thanks do David and the team who helped us over the phone and skype through the planning and deployment of the kit.

Wireless Solution Sweden is the most global brand of Wireless DMX technology, present in over 100 countries, with a track-record of reliability and know-how, and unofficially named the standard of Wireless DMX.

Neg Earth invests in W-DMX™

Posted on: December 6th, 2016 by David Ferraz

The London-based company has just invested in a large number of BlackBox F-2 G4S transceivers for an upcoming tour.

Neg Earth is one of the leading independent companies for entertainment lighting and rigging hire in the United Kingdom. The company recently moved to their brand-new premises in North-West London.

For this project, Wireless DMX was critical to get data to audience trusses for an in-the-round stadium tour. At each venue, the power would be sourced local to the trusses, which would require potentially hundreds of metres of extra cable for the sake of two DMX universes on each side of the stadium.

A Blackbox F-2 will be placed at each of the four edges of the mother grid in the centre of the stadium, transmitting two universes to each audience truss. The distro position, along with the receiver unit, would vary at each venue either being on a spot gantry, on the floor, or a balcony somewhere nearby.

In total, Neg invested in 12 BlackBox F-2 MK2 transceivers, Outdoor 12 directional antennas for each receiver and Outdoor 6 antennas for the transmitter. Furthermore, Wireless Solution have supplied two UglyBox MK2 and a W-DMX™ Dongle to go along in the tool kit. “The UglyBox and Dongle are fantastic tools for setups like this one”, said David Ferraz, International Business Development Manager for Wireless Solution. “You can quickly deploy them, scan and troubleshoot any W-DMX™ network”.

Such large variables made wireless the obvious choice, and Wireless Solution were contacted for advice, pricing and recommendations. Dan Webb, Senior Consoles Technician at Neg Earth says “As soon as we spoke to David at Wireless Solution, we knew this was the product to use. These are people who know the kit, capabilities and understood that crew need the most reliable and easy to use solution. They have a great portfolio with many more complicated gigs and provide excellent technical support. We need to be sure that Neg Earth stock will work anywhere in the world and we have that confidence in W-DMX™”.

Studio Due lights up flagpole wirelessly

Posted on: December 2nd, 2016 by David Ferraz

Studio Due, the Italian manufacturer of LED lighting technology, has recently commissioned a job in the United Arab Emirates, with the scope to light up a 128-meter flagpole, with a 450m2 flag.

The flagpole is located in city of Sharjah, on the Persian Gulf – Studio Due were requested to replace the fixtures previously installed with LED technology, and produce an even illumination along the length of the flagpole.

The new fixtures were placed on 7 plinths, each one 3 meters above ground, and using a long throw beam that could reach the top of the pole. The company decided to specify their City Beam LED24 RGBW/FC fixtures, with 5º lens, and all driven by W-DMX™, integrated as an OEM receiver in each unit.

Transmitting data to these units was a WhiteBox F-1 G4S with an Outdoor 12 antenna, positioned in the amphitheatre close to the flagpole, sending data directly to the Studio Due fixtures. This distance to the furthest point was 150 meters.

We decided to install units with integrated W-DMX™ due to how easy it would be to replace the previous 2kW fixtures by running everything wirelessly. The whole process was easy and effective, not to mention how much money it saved by not having to install cable all around the flagpole”, commented Paolo Carvone, Field Application Engineer for Studio Due.

Studio Due is has been an OEM partner since 2012 and continue developing projects with Wireless DMX worldwide.

W-DMX™ connects Néstor Kirchner Centre in Argentina

Posted on: November 4th, 2016 by David Ferraz

The largest cultural centre in Latin America has undergone through a façade lighting installation – the Centro Cultural Néstor Kirchner in Buenos Aires – Argentina, opened last year, and has an impressive footprint of 15,000 square meters, with a total of 6 floors that accommodate 16 rehearsal rooms, 18 halls and 40 galleries, setting itself as the fourth largest cultural centre in the world.

To enhance its majestic design and virtues, the council commissioned façade lighting to be installed – This had, however, to include minimalist intervention and care of displaying the luminaires and the cables to connect them together. With that in mind, Stage Tech SRL – a distributor of stage lighting in the region – assisted with this challenging request.

Stage Tech liaised with the regional designer and installer – Offramp SRL – who specified Wireless Solution’s W-DMX™ technology: “In total we used 6 WhiteBoxes F-1 G4S transceivers, with 4 of them receiving two universes wirelessly”, said Antonio Agra, CEO of Stage Tech SRL. “We got a very specific order from the customer, and worked with Mr. Jose Luis Lopez from Offramp to make sure we could intervene in the simplest possible way”.

Because of the short distance between the transmitter and the receivers, the 3dBi antennas that come standard with the WhiteBox F-1 G4S units were enough: “The transmitter was actually placed inside the building, but at clean line-of-sight of all receivers. In the end, we succeeded in achieving a clean installation, and saved money in the process!”.

Controlling the lighting changes was an MA 2Port Node Pro: “Among other brands, we are proud to distribute Wireless Solution and MA Lighting in Argentina”, said Agra. “Supporting projects like this are very important to the success of any installation, and we are proud to have the team to do so.

W-DMX™ and Hex36 at Royal Adelaide Show

Posted on: September 26th, 2016 by David Ferraz

Staging Connections Adelaide used their brand new ShowPro Hex36 LED Floods at the Royal Adelaide Show with sixteen of them arranged around the main arena as effect lighting.

Originally intended as “traffic lights” to start and stop the Drone racing, the Hex36 ended up being integrated into the rest of the show for ute racing, effects lighting and to engage the audience.

The sheer brightness of the fixtures more than exceeded our expectations,” commented Ashley Gabriel, Staging Connections’ Regional General Manager. “Sixteen of them filled the main arena even if the stadium lights were turned off! The fixtures also had to withstand the Adelaide elements during the two week period they were in position facing high winds and driving rain as well as some warm sunny days – none of which affected the running or reliability of the Hex’s.”

Also making their debut were Staging Connections’ new Wireless Solution BlackBox F-1 wireless DMX transceivers and BlackBox R-512 with high gain antennas to control the fixtures.

“The DMX was solid even with 20,000 people in the arena and the general RF in the area too. We are very happy with the fixtures and equipment supplied.”

Wireless Solution is distributed in Australia and New Zealand exclusively by Show Technology.
