Litepanels has announced its Apollo Brigde Wireless DMX System. Apollo Bridge is a new dual-band wireless DMX system that utilizes advanced dynamic frequency hopping technology to let you instantly create a wireless DMX network anywhere.
Even though Apollo Bridge has been optimized for use with Litepanels’ own range of Gemini RGBWW LED panels, it has also been designed to work with a wider range of lighting fixtures than any other system.
Apollo Bridge will allow you to operate any fixture with a DMX input, as well as DMX networking and wireless DMX equipment. Users can now create just one system for centralized control of their lighting with no restrictions on which lights they use.
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.
The Apollo Bridge and iOS Lighticians Apollo Control app give lighting operators the ability to control and change lighting settings, DMX addresses and control modes on the fly. This is useful for those productions where time is short and lighting setups have to be done quickly.
The system features built-in dynamic RF transmission, that supports both 2.4 and 5GHz. According to Litepanels, this automatically avoids network interference and creates a dependable signal with no latency for complete 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.
