    5900 - Overview

    With tens of thousands of units sold since their introduction in 2011, ShoW Baby plug and play transceivers set the standard for ease of use and reliability at an affordable price point. The addition of Multiverse radio technology enhances the performance even more.

    City Theatrical's new Multiverse® SHoW Baby® (5900) is a wireless DMX transceiver that delivers breakthrough plug and play wireless DMX and RDM transmission. In its default mode, it works like any other SHoW Baby 6 Transceiver, with six user selectable SHoW IDs. By connecting an RDM controller, like DMXcat® Multi Function Test Tool, all of the revolutionary new 2.4GHz Multiverse SHoW IDs are accessible.

    Right out of the box, Multiverse SHoW Baby is fully compatible with all legacy SHoW DMX SHoW Baby® systems. Use it to build new single universe Multiverse systems, or use Multiverse SHoW Baby as a receiver on multiple universe systems with a Multiverse Transmitter.
