A 3D rendering of the new UglyBox MK2 from W-DMXW-DMX is flying into LDI to show off three new products: their Uglybox MK2, a new wireless signal tester; their W-DMX COB (Chip on Board), a transceiver solution in an ultra-compact 6x6 mm size; and the Nano RDM RX, a DMX/RDM Receiver with full implementation of the RDM protocol and support of the latest G4S software with updated 128-bit encryption and much improved adaptive frequency hopping algorithm.

W-DMX Debuts New Products at LDI

Uddevalla, Sweden – NOVEMBER 10, 2014 – Wireless Solution Sweden AB is proud to unveil its three latest products at LDI, November 21-23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the A.C.T. Lighting Booth 1715. Visitors to LDI 2014 are kindly invited to see these innovative products that will make Wireless DMX projects easier than ever before.

New on display will be the W-DMX™ UglyBox MK2. This is a compact new wireless signal tester, which is a valuable tool for users of wireless products, providing proof of a solid signal and piece of mind in the absence of visible cable.  

Don’t let the name fool you. The UglyBox MK2 is housed in an attractive compact body, resembling a gaming control with a 4.3” Touch LCD Screen. It supports 2.4GHz, 5.2GHz and 5.8GHz and is a transceiver solution, which means that it can be used as both transmitter and receiver. It has a complete DMX tester that provides all data in live format directly on the screen. It also has a built in DMX Controller as well as an RGB Fixture to simulate LED fixtures on the LCD Screen for quick testing. In history mode you can also see over time that you have a stable signal over a certain period.

The unit runs on a rechargeable Lithium battery for up to 12 hours and has a built-in SD Card reader to save all data for later export to Microsoft Excel. The UglyBox MK2 is geared towards rental and installation companies but useful for anyone. The unit is also designed to update with additional features as they become available.

Also on display is the new W-DMX COB (Chip on Board), a transceiver solution in an ultra compact 6x6mm size. Wireless Solution is the first to launch the SMT mounted Chip On Board Radio Transceiver that supports both DMX and RDM in a QFN48 package. The W-DMX COB is a low energy solution with only 40mA current consumption that facilitates distances up to 200 meters (650 feet) with a standard antenna together with a BlackBox F-1MK2. W-DMX COB is a low cost solution, making it possible for every manufacturer to implement wireless DMX with support of RDM. The W-DMX Solution is fully updateable to W-DMX Generation 5, with unique adaptive frequency hopping to automatically avoid interference from other wireless networks, and a data-safe function with 128-bit encryption to avoid un-licensed use of W-DMX protocols. With Invisi-Wire, error correction and up 4 times wireless redundancy that re-sends the wireless data 4 times faster over the air compared to DMX protocols on different radio frequencies, it ensures the most stable wireless DMX/RDM solution on the market.

Finally, be sure to check out the new NANO RDM RX, the next phase of Wireless RDM Receivers. As RDM functionality continues to increase in demand, Wireless Solution is proud to offer this valuable new solution. The NANO RDM RX is a DMX/RDM Receiver with full implementation of the RDM protocol and support of the latest G4S software with updated 128-bit encryption and much improved adaptive frequency hopping algorithm that is improved by 200% more accurate reading of the interference noise level. Based on the same technology as the W-DMX COB solution with high power PA as well a LNA with superior sensitivity for long distance control. The NANO RDM RX supports the latest standard of ETSI EN300 328 with the 2015 Revision. For easy implementation, it uses the same form factor as the existing NANO Range as well as the same connector in all other W-DMX products. The advantage with this is that it fits both high volume as well as project driven installations with a low cost that was not previously possible. Because Wireless Solution is the largest manufacturer of Wireless DMX with RDM support, cost savings through volume are passed on to the OEM, while also making you part of the largest network of OEM manufacturers using the official W-DMX technology with the best support on the market.

The full range of W-DMX products will be available, along with the friendly faces of Wireless Solution and A.C.T. Lighting, who can answer all your questions and help make your next Wireless DMX project a headache-free and cost effective success.
