New Gear Alert: SHoW Baby 5 Wireless DMX

July 19, 2013 - Carlstadt, New Jersey

City Theatrical's SHoW Baby now has five SHoW IDs, allowing systems to be scaled up to multi universe broadcasts by adding additional transmitters, or as a way of avoiding interference from other SHoW Babys in the area.


SHoW Baby 5 Wireless DMX

SHoW Baby 5 is still plug and play.  When you plug in a DMX line from your lighting controller the SHoW Baby transceiver automatically becomes a Transmitter.  Without a DMX line plugged IN, it is a Receiver.

SHoW Baby 5 is the same price as the original SHoW Baby (List Price: $350 in the U.S. and £230 in Europe), and is compatible with all existing SHoW Babys in the world.

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.
