For more than a decade, LumenRadio has provided its DMX CRMX (Cognitive Radio MultiPlex) wireless technology. With the acquisition of Wireless Solution last year, they own both W-DMX and CRMX technology.. LumenRadio now introduces a unified technology platform, creating a seamless experience for all wireless DMX users, with the goal of standardizing the industry and enhancing the experience.
Since 2008 there are two technologies competing in the market: W-DMX from Wireless Solution and CRMX de LumenRadio. This has, until now, led to an industry divided between the two main wireless DMX technologies.
In 2020 LumenRadio acquired Wireless Solution and together, Both brands supply wireless DMX to almost the entire DMX industry. stage lighting. LumenRadio is now in a position to set an industry-wide standard that makes life easier for users of this technology.
“Our strategy has been to create the best user experience, making wireless DMX easy to use for all users. With our acquisition, we are now able to unify the entire industry on a single platform and establish a standard for Wireless DMX, ”explains Niclas Norlen, CTO of LumenRadio and inventor of W-DMX and CRMX.
The first step in unifying the technologies was the launch of Wireless Solution's BlackBox G6, which included optional CRMX. This made it possible for W-DMX users to control CRMX equipment for the first time, bringing the technologies one step closer. Now LumenRadio brings the next step to the market: a unified technology platform.
LumenRadio will provide all OEM customers with modules with combined W-DMX and CRMX technology. This means that all wireless DMX fixtures will support both W-DMX and CRMX at the same time, and will automatically select the protocol used by the transmitter.
With this new solution it will be possible to use either of the two protocols to control all the Wireless DMX luminaires on the marketregardless of whether W-DMX or CRMX is used. The user will not have to select the operating modes or configure the luminaires, everything will be configured automatically during pairing.
“With this new technology platform we are able to unify the industry that has been divided for so long. There is no need for multiple transmitters or incompatible technologies. LumenRadio supplies a wireless DMX solution that works with all luminaires ”as Josef Hederström, LumenRadio Sales Director, explains.
In the future, all OEM customers integrating Wireless DMX will get support for both CRMX and W-DMX, unifying the industry on a single technology platform. The solution is implemented in a selection of LumenRadio modules and is in the testing phase at this time. It will soon be available for new installations for OEM customers under both the Wireless Solution and LumenRadio brands.
LumenRadio, of which Stonex is a distributor in Spain, will continue to provide the entertainment lighting industry with wireless DMX under both brands, and with a unified technological platform, it is easier than ever for all users to work with wireless DMX.
