Wireless Solution Sweden AB has signed an agreement to now offer Wireless RDM for sales in the United States, making them the first company outside of the US to do so. W-DMX™ G4 is covered by U.S. Patent #7,432,803, which covers Wireless Solution and its distributors as well as W-DMX OEM Clients.
The license applies to W-DMX G4 BlackBox F-1, BlackBox F-2, WhiteBox F-1, WhiteBox F-2, Micro F-1 and ProBox F-2500. All units are standard with RDM. The license also covers the Micro OEM PCB and PRO OEM PCB for W-DMX OEM manufacturers. OEM partners are “very happy” with the new license agreement. Wireless Solution is the only company to offer dual band 2.4 and 5.8GHz with RDM and adaptive frequency hopping in both OEM single PCB or Standard Transceivers with FLEX function to change a unit to be both transmitter and receiver. All F-Models are both transmitters and receivers and offer a full flex with optional “anything in, anything out” (for example DMX in and Art-Net out or s/ACN in and DMX out.) W-DMX G4 is covered by one or more claims of U.S. Patent #7,432,803 from City Theatrical and/or by other patent applications and corresponding foreign patent applications pending. North American W-DMX distributors Creative Stage Lighting and ACT Lighting are extremely pleased with the news, as it opens up new opportunities and makes the product even stronger. Ben Saltzman, Executive Vice President for ACT Lighting commented, “The addition of RDM to the award-winning W-DMX products makes them an even more powerful tool for the lighting technician and we are excited to bring this capability to our large user base. Adding RDM to W-DMX’s roster of technological features will continue their position as the world leader in wireless and the de facto standard in North America.” George Studnicky IV, Production and Rentals Manager from Creative Stage Lighting added, “Having the wireless ability to use RDM keeps the industry on the path moving towards full fixture management where it matters most! This saves time for the user and further solidifies Wireless Solution’s strength in Wireless DMX technology.” Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution said, “This agreement not only makes W-DMX a more powerful tool, but helps further lighting technology by putting RDM one more step ahead in this industry. Lighting technicians get more flexibility and more control.”
