W-DMX™ by Wireless Solution Sweden AB recently joined legendary Norwegian alternative rock band Seigmen on stage for a 3-day show in Tønsberg, Norway, lit with an impressive rig designed by Lighting Designer Petter Nilssen.
In total, 5 universes were run via W-DMX by Wireless Solution. Nilssen used W-DMX F-2500 G4 and 3 W-DMX BlackBox F-1 G4 MK2 units with 16 W-DMX Micro R-512 G4 receivers spread across 4 truss sections and the floor. The concert received fantastic reviews both in Norway and abroad.
Nilssen explained, “The reason for choosing W-DMX was to be able to not have several universes sent through the audience with cables, and to really test W-DMX in different situations. I used 5 DMX universes all sent wirelessly. The possibility to easily change the design without having to deal with a lot of cables that needed to change was also important.”
An ETC Cobalt 20 with 2 ETC 4-port nodes was located at FOH for control with outgoing W-DMX ProBox F-2500 G4. The stage was outfitted with 12 Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE K20, 18 Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE K10, 8 Clay Paky A.leda K10, 6 Clay Paky Alpha Spot HPE 300, 7 Clay Paky Stormy, 7 Clay Paky Stormy CC, 6 Martin Atomic, 6 Pixelbar 12, 48 Dim with different generics and 2 MDG ATMe. Equipment was supplied by Spekter Lyd & Lys and Elektrik Solutions.
Nilssen said, “I’m really happy with using Wireless Solution products. I have now been touring with the system for about a year and often Wireless Solution helps me rather than make trouble in a venue that so many people are afraid of. Often when I’m on tour I can have a local supplier that will deliver different kinds of cheap knock-off products in the rig. More and more I often have problems with the local rig when I put the DMX cable in the console. The rig starts blinking and I have no control over it. I always have with me a spare universe from Wireless Solution with a micro transceiver and some micro receivers. When this kind of trouble happens I always change from cable to W-DMX and the problem is gone. Because of all the new technologies that are in the new consoles on the market today like RDM and so on, the different products from cheap manufacturers often start to live their own life. With Wireless Solution I take away the grounding and the problem is gone and all the cheap LEDs can live a little longer. Get rid of you cables and get yourself wireless!”
