City Theatrical SHoW Baby 5 Wireless DMX Transceiver


Product Description

The ultimate simplicity of plug and play with the power of SHoW DMX Neo® Technology.

City Theatrical has provided the benchmark in wireless DMX systems for entertainment for over a decade with the award winning WDS™ and SHoW DMX® systems.

SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 is incredibly easy to use and incredibly affordable, while still offering the quality and advanced features of SHoW DMX Neo technology, so SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 is perfect for the venue or performance where a full featured SHoW DMX system might be too sophisticated or too costly.

The SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 represents a breakthrough in plug-and-play wireless DMX and RDM transmission - a single unit that can be used either as a wireless DMX Transmitter or Receiver.  Set-up couldn’t be simpler with SHoW DMX SHoW Baby’s instant plug-and-play configuration: For a Transmitter, connect DMX IN, for a Receiver, don’t.

When a DMX cable is plugged to the SHoW DMX SHoW Baby’s DMX Input, the SHoW DMX SHoW Baby senses the connection and configures itself as a transmitter. If no cable is connected to the DMX Input, the SHoW Baby configures itself as a Receiver.

All you need now to set up a SHoW DMX wireless DMX system is two SHoW DMX SHoW Baby units and two minutes!

Need to scale up your SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 system?

Using the five different SHoW IDs available with SHoW Baby™ 5, you can set up a multi-universe system by adding additional Transmitters or use multiple separate SHoW Baby systems in the same area.

How it works:

There are still seven indicator lights on the front of the SHoW Baby, four for signal strength, one to designate whether it is a Transmitter, one to designate whether it is a Receiver, and a Data present light.

In SHoW Baby 5, that Data light (now labeled ID/Data) serves a second purpose, and that is to designate the SHoW ID.  A small indented button on the back, when pushed, cycles through the five SHoW IDs, and the user only has to be sure the Transmitter and all Receivers have the same color selected on the Data/ID light.

If there are two SHoW Baby systems in an area, or if a user needs to scale up a multi universe system by adding additional Transmitters, he needs only to select a different color of Data/ID light.

All SHoW Babys are still compatible with the full SHoW DMX Neo system and can be used as receivers on that system.
