Litepanels has announced the launch of a dual-band wireless DMX system to be known as Apollo Bridge. It uses advanced dynamic frequency hopping technology designed to instantly create a robust wireless DMX network anywhere. Optimized for use with Litepanels Gemini RGBWW LED panels, Apollo can also work with a wide range of lighting fixtures. The Apollo Bridge and iOS Lighticians Apollo Control app give lighting operators the control to change lighting settings, DMX addresses and control modes on the fly with the ability to move around large sets while staying connected and in control of their lighting. Users can see their light settings on an iPad or iPhone and adjust in real time for instant results.
Apollo Bridge can also be used with any control software or console including Blackout, Luminair, ETC, GrandMA and Chamsys to send commands, using the sACN DMX protocol, wirelessly or via the LAN ethernet port. Single DMX512 universe boards can also be used by connecting them through the Apollo Bridge 5-pin XLR I/O port.
Apollo has been designed to operate any fixture with a DMX input, as well as DMX networking and wireless DMX equipment. Users can create just one system for centralized control of their lighting with no restrictions on which lights they use. Built-in dynamic RF transmission, supporting both 2.4 and 5GHz, automatically avoids network interference and creates a dependable signal with little or no latency for solid reliability. With full sACN capabilities, multiple Apollo bridge units can be added to provide wireless DMX control to as many lights and universes as required to scale up on larger productions. Simultaneous CRMX and wired DMX output can be used to provide a built-in fail-safe or to quickly add more fixtures without needing to reconfigure a DMX network.
Apollo Bridge is available to buy now from Litepanels authorized retailers. The free Lighticians Apollo Control iOS app is available from the Apple App Store.
