The new Airstream DMX Bridge from ADJ is the perfect wireless DMX control solution, allowing users to operate multiple ADJ fixtures from a distance of 2,500ft, without the hassle of extensive wiring or complicated DMX programing. Not only that, but users can achieve all of this from the screen of their smartphone or tablet, thanks to the arrival of a revolutionary app for iOS.
ADJ’s Airstream DMX Bridge is a Wi-Fi interface designed to work with the company’s innovative new Airstream DMX Bridge app. This intelligent combination of hardware and software enables users to create a single wireless DMX network for their WiFLY-compatible ADJ fixtures, allowing them to send a signal from their iOS device to the lighting fixtures themselves via the Airstream DMX Bridge unit. This gives users the freedom to control their lighting effects and produce spectacular programed lightshows from the convenience of their handheld device. Furthermore, ADJ has fitted the Airstream DMX Bridge unit with 3-pin DMX outputs, so users can also control their non-WiFLY products from the same app.
With the unit also boasting EXR (extended range) WiFLY, ADJ has also ensured that the fixtures within the DMX network can be controlled wirelessly from an impressive distance of up to 2,500ft, using any iOS device. This is perfect for mobile DJs, event organizers and lighting designers who want to generate pure lighting excitement from their convenient position at the DJ booth, behind the stage or from the back of the room, even in the largest of spaces, without having to lay extensive cables or be tied to one position.
The Airstream DMX Bridge allows users to control their DMX lighting easier than other control products on the market. The App is easy to learn by someone with little or no DMX experience, yet it has plenty pro features for advanced users as well. Plus, the Airstream DMX App allows users to go wireless. This means quicker, on-the-fly programming with no fuss or messy wires. From an iPad or iPhone designers may control all their DMX lighting: LED Pars, Moving Heads, stage lighting, GOBO projectors, uplighting and dance floor FX from the simple push of a button.
Key features of the Airstream DMX Bridge box include a WiFLY signal indicator on the side panel, allowing users to see how strong the wireless signal is when positioning their ADJ lighting; 14 WiFLY channels, for controlling a wide range of fixtures; and a transmitter which can send signals to multiple receivers using the same radio channel (letting users incorporate numerous WiFLY lighting fixtures within the same DMX network). In addition, these receivers will automatically ‘listen’ for transmitters, so users can instantly get set up and start controlling their wireless lighting, without having to ‘pair’ the effects first.
The app layout is simple, making it easy to navigate, with five tabs on the main menu: Fixtures, Channels, Effects, Scenes and Shows. On the Fixtures tab users can patch up to 24 fixtures by selecting from a pre-set library of ADJ WiFLY and Elation products, as well as having access to generic configurations (e.g. RGBA or 24-Channel). The Channels tab can then be used to access a range of settings for the selected product, so users can do everything from adjusting the color of individual LEDs to triggering strobe effects or creating unique patterns of movement for their moving heads. The Color and Pan/Tilt sub menus, meanwhile, can be used to adjust positioning and create custom color hues, as well as add amber, white and UV to the mix.
As well as the reliable wireless DMX network created by the Airstream DMX Bridge and the revolutionary design of the unit’s accompanying app, ADJ has ensured that the new product provides plenty by way of practicalities. With a magnetic bottom plate, users can mount the unit quickly and easily, attaching it to metal fixtures and objects, including trussing and ceiling supports. A quick-lock bracket is also included, allowing the Airstream DMX Bridge to be mounted in a range of positions and on different surfaces, for when using the magnetic bottom plate is not an option.
