ColorSource Relay and City Theatrical Multiverse
Will ColorSource Relay wireless devices work with City Theatrical's Multiverse system?
ColorSource Relay Wireless works with some existing transmitters from City Theatrical's SHoW DMX product line, including ShoW Baby 6 and SHoW Baby Neo.
City Theatrical's newer Multiverse system transmits several universes of DMX / sACN / Artnet at the same time, using a different SHoW ID numbering system, which is not natively compatible with SHoW DMX and therefore ColorSource Relay Wireless, but it is compatible with the ColorSource Relay Multiverse. Some Multiverse products can also transmit on the SHoW DMX standard, but others can't.
Some but not all Multiverse products are compatible with ColorSource Relay:
- Multiverse SHoW Baby will work with ColorSource Relay and ColorSource Relay Multiverse.
- Multiverse Node will work with ColorSource Relay and ColorSource Relay Multiverse.
- Multiverse Transmitter will not work with ColorSource Relay Wireless (this includes the 900MHz, 900MHz/2.4GHz, and 2.4GHz models)
- Multiverse Transmitter will work with ColorSource Relay Multiverse, but the ColorSource Relay Multiverse unit must be configured via RDM into a Multiverse mode first, and the Multiverse Transmitter cannot perform this configuration. A Multiverse SHoW Baby or Multiverse Node must be used for initial configuration.
