Look Solutions and City Theatrical are proud to introduce the Wireless DMX-it, an accessory to make any Look Solutions fog or haze machine WDS-ready. That means productions utilizing City Theatrical's WDS wireless technology can easily control any Look Solutions product from their DMX console without DMX cables. The Wireless DMX-it makes its debut at the USITT Annual Conference & Stage Expo, a focal point for performing arts and entertainment professionals, at the Phoenix Convention Center, March 14-17, 2007.
The Wireless DMX-it has a built-in WDS receiver and two control output jacks: a 1/8-inch Mini to control Look Solutions’ Tiny-Fogger or Tiny-Compact, and a 3-pin XLR to control a Power-Tiny, Viper NT, or Unique2. A 5-pin XLR DMX Out is also included, allowing the unit to function as a conventional WDS DMX Receiver while simultaneously controlling a fog machine.
"Several of our Broadway clients have requested this product," notes Nathan Kahn, President of Look Solutions USA, "and we are happy to make it available to them. We especially value City Theatrical's philosophy of listening to the industry and creating accessories people need in order to utilize equipment they already own to its fullest capacity. We really appreciate the work Larry Dunn, head of engineering at City Theatrical, has done to develop this new product with us."
“We're really excited to work with Look,” says Dunn. “Their products are known for quality, and we think that the innovative features of the fog machines will be enhanced by making them wireless. Broadway electricians are excited about Wireless DMX-it; it’s something they’re always asking for.”

It can be built into any DMX device providing instant, cable-free connectivity with the mission-critical reliability of 2.4GHz Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology.
