TEDx Göteborg

Have you ever been to a big concert, tempted to post a picture online or perhaps call a friend, only to end up experiencing the lack of connectivity on your cell phone? Communication between wireless electronics is dependent on frequencies – a finite natural resource – and thus something we cannot take for granted. Our co-founder Niclas Norlén is a restless and energetic person who describes himself as a frequency nerd dedicated to making things work. In an era where an increasingly large amount of home electronics and physical devices are becoming wireless, a.k.a. ”The Internet of things” within the tech world, Niclas is eager to improve our society by using frequencies in a more efficient manner. In addition, there are both economical and environmental incentives in this: creating a world where resources can be utilized more effectively by enabling better communication between devices – and thereby reducing energy consumption.

Upon completing his engineering degree, Niclas began working at Ericsson and in 2002 he started his first company. Frequencies and communication are what he knows best and have been a recurring theme in his work. In 2008, he started LumenRadio and developed a method for enabling different electronic devices to coexist smoothly, using frequencies in a more effective and dynamic way. Ultimately, this can facilitate the transformation into so-called ”smart devices” where different wireless units can communicate with each other. His company has received global attention and collaborated with both Hollywood productions and the music and arts festival Coachella.

At TEDxGöteborg, Niclas wants us to get to know his best friends – frequencies – and how we can use them in the best way possible. Because the electromagnetic spectrum of frequencies we use for wireless communication is limited and can in fact run out, our ability to simultaneously connect units is also limited. In his talk, Niclas will give attention to the possibilities frequencies offer for the future, especially when utilizing his buddies in a better way. A larger number of units could then communicate and be more easily connected at the same time, whether it be wireless lighting, lampposts, refrigerators, ventilation systems – or perhaps a couple of thousand cell phones at a big concert.

CRMX Nova TX USB - DMX Transmitter

Martin Professional and ChamSys add support for the CRMX Nova USB dongle

LumenRadio, leading manufacturer of reliable wireless technologies for the entertainment industries, is pleased to announce that Martin Professional and ChamSys Ltd. have chosen to add support in their respective control software for the CRMX Nova USB TX dongle to give their users easy access to reliable wireless DMX control directly from the console.

“We have added support in M-PC for the USB dongle transmitter from LumenRadio. We think it is a great way for our users to get access to reliable wireless technology without the need for using cables to connect a transmitter to the controller. M-PC will offer one full universe of DMX for free using the LumenRadio transmitter.” says Matthias Hinrichs, Product Manager at Martin Professional. Hinrichs continues; “We are also planning to add support for the Nova USB TX driver to our range of M-Series consoles in the near future.”

British console manufacturer ChamSys also decided to add support for the CRMX Nova USB TX dongle throughout their complete MagicQ product line. Chris Kennedy, Software Director at ChamSys Ltd. explains: “We got requests from our customers to add support for the LumenRadio dongle, so we now offer plug and play support in both our MagicQ PC software and in our MagicQ consoles. With our MagicQ software, for PC and Mac, the users can output a full universe wirelessly for free.”

With the launch of the CRMX Nova TX USB, LumenRadio has made it easier than ever for controller manufacturers to be part of the ongoing wireless revolution in the entertainment industry. Almost all consoles today come with a USB port, meaning no expensive hardware changes are necessary to leverage the thousands of products with built-in LumenRadio receivers already available on the market. Michael Karlsson, R&D Manager at LumenRadio, explains: “We have always wanted to make our technology available to everyone. By using a standard USB connector and open protocols, wireless DMX directly in your PC or console is just a software update away”.

“We are very happy that Martin Professional and ChamSys are the first to officially support for our USB TX in their consoles and PC software. Being able to plug your transmitter directly into your computer opens up a whole new set of applications.” says Marcus Bengtsson, International Sales Manager at LumenRadio.

LumenRadio Provides Flexible Wireless DMX Solution for Stora Teatern

Gothenburg’s renaissance style Stora Teatern was originally built in 1859 and is one of the most popular historical buildings in the bustling Swedish port city. It now presents a lively mix of concerts, theatre and dance shows and is also a must-go weekend destination during the summer season as ‘Backstage’ a popular club / DJ performance experience in the region.

Due to its truly multi-purpose entertainment programme and many different configurations depending on the event, the show lighting rigs are constantly changing.

Saving time and hassle, head of lighting Joel Karlberg has installed a LumenRadio wireless DMX system which enables data signals between the lights and the control desk to be re-routed quickly and easily.

Joel co-ordinates all the lighting technical elements and has found the wireless DMX system to be a flexible and practical solution for addressing and re-addressing around 30 moving lights in the rig which are used constantly – but in different locations and set ups – for all the shows and events.

When the Backstage club is running, the main dancefloor and bar occupies what is normally the stage area and the space expands through the backstage and stage wings and outside right into the back of the venue with a large outdoor area … enabling a capacity of 1200 party people to be accommodated.

The lighting rig for the club is completely different from that of a visiting dance or drama show using the stage, so lights are re-rigged in different places, but with the LumenRadio system in place, Joel doesn’t have to worry about running data cables to any of them or linking back to the lighting desk he does it all wirelessly.

The main club session lights this season comprised 10 x Robe Pointes, 12 x Robe LEDWash 800s, four Clay Paky Mythos and four Vari*Lite VL1100s plus strobes – running via wireless DMX, plus an additional 30 x static LED bars and washes.

Using the inbuilt wireless cards on the Robe LEDWash 800s units, it’s possible to feed the whole rig with wireless data signals.

They have one permanent LumenRadio double transmitter (permanently installed in the roof), two receivers, one flexible unit (that can be configured as a transmitter or receiver) and one more transmitter, and the lights can be linked through these without having to mess around with running a whole chain of data cables … saving valuable time in set up.

A standard stage lighting rig – when the venue is receiving theatre productions – will utilize three LX pipes which are usually rigged with the 12 x LEDWash 800s, 10 x Martin Quantum Profiles and four Robe DL4S LED Profiles together with 8 x Vari*Lite VL1100s and an additional 50 x conventional fixtures.

Additional lighting fixtures or devices like smoke machines can be seamlessly linked to the lighting control console using the wireless system.

For concerts and performance style shows, the DL4S’s and LEDWash 800s can be taken down and moved to other active LX bars or the floor position – wherever they are best placed to light for the show being staged – and easily patched back into the system without running data lines.

To keep things fresh, as well as presenting music concerts in a standard set up with the band onstage, Stora Teatern also has bands playing in front of the stage – standing on a covered orchestra pit – with the audience onstage rather than sitting in the stalls! So the set up is changing constantly.

Before committing, he consulted several other LumenRadio users including the Riksteatern performing arts centre that also has a wireless DMX solution. They said it was solid and very stable, so Joel went ahead and specified the brand for Stora Teatern.

“We honestly save so much extra work” says Joel, concluding that in addition to that, the service and support from LumenRadio is “excellent”.
