DMXcat® Multi Function Test Tool
City Theatrical‘s DMXcat® Multi Function Test Tool system is designed for use by the lighting professional who is involved with the planning, installation, operation, or maintenance of theatrical and studio lighting equipment. The system consists of a small hardware interface device and a suite of mobile applications. Together, they combine to bring DMX/RDM control plus several other functionalities to the user’s smartphone for use wherever and whenever they are needed.
Developed with input from designers and technicians, the DMXcat is an indispensable tool for lighting users.
|The DMXcat hardware is built into every Multiverse® Transmitter. This means you can now access, configure, and control your Multiverse Transmitter with the free DMXcat app. DMXcat technology means that you no longer have to touch or even be close to your Multiverse Transmitter to make changes to it. Update your current DMXcat app or download it today to connect your Multiverse Transmitter.|
|City Theatricals’ DMXcat’s new Multi Fixture feature includes a patch that can be implemented to group and control lighting fixtures together to save time and improve workflows. This patch also allows users to assign numbers to channels or fixtures, which can be useful in creating a consistent and simplified numbering system between creative and technical teams of a given production or installation project. DMXcat users can use the patch to save, name, and re-load setups across various rigs, for use on future projects. To learn how to get started, read the Getting Started with Multi Fixture PDF or visit the DMXcat Quick Start Guide FAQ.|
The DMXcat’s interface device is a compact battery powered unit which fits easily in a pocket or tool pouch or may be worn on a belt. It uses Bluetooth LE technology for communication with the smartphone/applications (up to 50’ range). Without the limitations of being physically connected, the user can move about the workspace as needed with his/her smartphone and run the various apps while still using the phone for on-the-job communication. The device’s 5 pin XLRF connector/cable asembly allows it to be connected to a point in a DMX data chain to allow testing and or control of the various DMX/RDM channel functions. It is charged using a standard USB to Micro-USB cable and charger.
Other features include a built-in LED flashlight, an audible alarm (for locating a misplaced unit), an LED Status indicator, and a removable belt clip.
Optional accessories include: XLR5M to RJ45 Adapter, XLR5M to XLR3F Adapter, XLR5M to XLR5M Turnaround, XLR5M to XLR3M Turnaround, Belt Pouch.
