As venues like theaters, houses of worship, schools and community centers upgrade their lighting rigs with LED technology, their power-control technology needs to be upgraded as well. With a simple configuration and dependable wireless performance, the ColorSource™ Relay power-control system kick-starts a new era of budget-friendly power control for your lighting systems. It's a budget-friendly solution for data distribution and system infrastructure, particularly for smaller-sized venues.

Working in conjunction with the ColorSource Relay, the ColorSource Transmitter connects to a wired-DMX source - like a lighting console -- and transmits DMX and data signals wirelessly to any ColorSource Relay within a 328-foot (100-meter) range and supports up to 16 amps of power. 

The problem-solving ColorSource Relay makes it easy to get DMX and power into remote and hard-to-reach locations, without having to run cords everywhere, making it great for front-of-house applications. Best of all, you'll have more time to focus on more important things, since the ColorSource Relay has minimal setup and doesn't need any programming whatsoever - even a novice can do it!

And the ColorSource Relay is not just for LEDs. Combined with the ColorSource Transmitter, you can use any DMX/RDM-compatible device to create a completely wireless theatrical rig. Combining it with ColorSource PAR and Spot luminaires creates an affordable lighting system for any venue. The Relay also comes in a wired version that can work on a wired rig or act as an extension of the wireless ColorSource Relay when you need more DMX and power on a single line set.

"This is a game changer in the world of lighting," says ETC Entertainment Market Manager Matt Armendariz-Kerr. "The ColorSource Relay solves issues that haven't really been tackled in the professional lighting industry before, and we are pleased to be a small part of the movement that starts that journey forward."
