The ColorSource Relay

Wireless control for tight budgets

No longer will you need to run DMX cables to your front-of-house lighting positions, which takes hours of work, can be expensive, and looks unsightly. The ColorSource™ Relay Multiverse Receiver is the answer: a low-cost and revolutionary wireless power control solution that switches power and easily transmits DMX to remote or hard-to-reach places in any space. It’s ideal for small- to medium-sized venues like community centers, university theaters, houses of worship and schools.

Transforming small system design
  • Wireless DMX, switching, and data
  • Plug-and-play connectivity for lightning-fast setup
  • Mitigates system wear and tear, and extends equipment life
  • Reduces quiescent loads of connected devices to only ¼ watt

Turn on your console and you’re ready to go!

By creating a simple and straightforward user experience, the wireless ColorSource Relay Multiverse Receiver makes your show setup and teardown nearly effortless. The ColorSource Relay receives wireless DMX signals and automatically enables power switching and DMX for up to 16 amps of power. After you turn off your DMX controller – such as your lighting console – the ColorSource waits several seconds before automatically turning off all connected devices.
