SHoW DMX NEO Transceiver

All SHoW DMX Neo products feature the ability to optimize control of output power, full or limited bandwidth broadcast, and the ability to broadcast less than the full DMX packet to shrink the radio footprint. For the users who do not want to manually optimize their broadcast, SHoW DMX Neo products also have Neo Adaptive Mode that will select only open radio channels to broadcast on, with no user intervention needed. All SHoW DMX Neo products will also ?heal? lost data packets.

Key features:

Three User Selectable Broadcast Modes

In SHoW DMX NEO Mode, CTI's proprietary system synchronizes the FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) hopping period so that every DMX data packet is transmitted completely during a single hop. In SHoW DMX Neo Adaptive Mode, the system will automatically adapt away from interference with no user intervention necessary. In SHoW DMX Classic Mode the system is exactly compatible with all existing older SHoW DMX systems.

Adjustable Output Power

SHoW DMX Neo has adjustable broadcast power from 1-72mW ETSI. This allows the user to adjust the output power to meet the application requirement. The option of adjustable output power allows users to select only the power needed and to respect the wireless needs of their colleagues on their production, and other wireless users in the area. This philosophy is diametrically opposed to some other manufacturers who sell powerful radios with only one output setting designed to overpower all radio users in the area.

Adjustable Hopping Patterns, Including Full Bandwidth Hopping and Limited Bandwidth Hopping

SHoW DMX Neo and Neo Classic Modes offers more than one kind of user-selectable FHSS hopping mode. In full bandwidth hopping mode, the system will continuously and pseudo-randomly hop between channels across the full 2.4GHz spectrum. This mode is available at any output power setting, and is quite typical of all FHSS radios.
In the Limited Bandwidth Hopping mode, the 2.4GHz band is divided into sub-bands. Each sub-band occupies approximately 40% of the full band, with one positioned at the low end, one in the center, and one at the high end of the full band. This allows the SHoW DMX Transmitter to be set to hop and broadcast in a different area of the spectrum to minimize or eliminate interference with Wi-Fi or other channel specific or limited bandwidth equipment.

Limited Burst DMX Output

In Limited Burst mode, the user may select for broadcast any contiguous group of 32 or more DMX channels in multiples of 32/51 (Classic/Neo) channels. These may be assigned to any starting address that will accommodate the burst size. This will reduce the amount of radio energy that is broadcast, thereby reducing the potential for interference with other systems. For instance, if a show needs only 128 channels of wireless DMX, the system can be set to broadcast only 128 channels, causing the radio to go silent 75% of the time (1-(128/512)=.75). If only 64 channels are used, the radio will be silent 87% of the time. This silent time reduces overall radio spectrum activity and increases the chances of all other radio signals in the vicinity to be broadcast successfully.

SHoW DMX Neo Adaptive Mode

In SHoW DMX Neo Adaptive Mode, Adaptive Spread Spectrum Frequency Hopping identifies and masks off hopping channels with interference, replacing them in the hop sequence with alternate channels. If users choose not to use manual settings, they can choose this setting instead.

Lost Data Replacement

SHoW DMX Neo ?heals? incomplete data packets with the most recent correct data.

Ethernet Based Protocols

The SHoW DMX Neo Transceiver is provided with an RJ-45 connector and additional processing capacity to allow sACN, Art-Net, KiNet, and Pathport input and output.

Ultra Low Latency

Total system latency of 7ms or less

Simple Default Plug and Play Mode

The SHoW DMX Neo system has a sophisticated user interface allowing complete control of a number of settings, but in its default mode, SHoW DMX Neo is completely plug and play. In its factory mode, or by resetting factory defaults, Transceiver and Receiver will wake up in contact with each other and no other settings are needed unless the user chooses to make them. With all its sophistication, the SHoW DMX Neo system is also one of the simplest systems available.


The SHoW DMX system uses RDM communications for all remote device control and configuration, or for any inter-device communication required. This provides an easily understood method for managing requirements such as Receiver strength and Dimmer address setting. RDM commands may be issued from an upstream RDM controller such as a console, or from the Transmitter.
