W-DMX™ Brings Generation 4 to Prolight + Sound

w-dmx_blackbox_f-2_g4sm.jpgWireless Solution Sweden AB will be demonstrating the new W-DMXâ„¢ G4 line, which is now shipping, during Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany, April 6-9 in Hall 11.0, Stand C81.

Unlike any cable, the new G4 is able to repair corrupted data and vouches for maximum security by running on dual band and creating a backup duplicate of the signal. This new standard is transparent and works with several protocols, creating extreme flexibility and reliability without the need for additional controllers or software.

The new G4 product line includes Adaptive Frequency Hopping technology that scans the spectrum automatically to avoid interference from Wi-fi, Intercom and other radio products, W-DMX invisi-wire and data-safe technologies for unparalleled fidelity, and support for RDM (Remote Device Management) so W-DMX units and lighting fixtures connected through W-DMX can be configured remotely with no fuss or cables. W-DMX G4 supports the 5.8GHz band as standard, ensuring that even if the 2.4GHz band becomes too crowded with other users, your lighting control remains rock solid. The W-DMX G4 range of products also has the highest output power available today, with up to 800mW on 2.45GHz and 1000mW on 5.8GHz.
