The RC4Magic S3 DMX4dim is a compact, easy to use, secure, battery powered 4-channel wireless dimmer that makes dimming LEDs, lamps, motors in small props, costumes and more effortless. The DMX4dim includes a built-in radio receiver and uses RC4 OneTouch™ for easy assignment of any DMX channel and dimmer curve to any dimmer with a single press of a single button. Device configuration can also be done with Remote Device Management (RDM) and RC4 Commander Configuration Software
All of the Series 3 products now include 19-bit dimming, which is eight times finer than 16-bit with a whopping 524,000 steps of resolution. For users, this means exceptionally smooth LED dimming, especially at the bottom end of the curve, which can be problematic. The DMX4dim also features dimmer curve cross-fading to each individual dimmer; this enables users to tweak the dimming curve 256 steps for each separate dimmer output.
Like the rest of the RC4 Harmonized Design™ platform, the DMX4dim features:
- RC4 Private IDentities™
- RC4 ColorMatch™
- RC4 Flkr Effects Engine™
- RC4 HotPatch™
- RC4 Commander Configuration Software
- Remote Device Management (RDM)
- RC4 Cross-Fade Controller
All RC4 dimmers are ideal for video professionals dealing with the banding, blinding and other anomalies created by PWM frequencies. All RC4 Series 3 dimmers provide multiple PWM frequencies – low, middle, high and supersonic – to eliminate these issues on video.
With four dimmer outputs, DMX4dim can take full advantage of the RC4 Fkr Effects Engine™. Say goodbye to canned effects; the RC4 Flkr Effects Engine™ allows users to effortlessly create memorable effects that can be stored and recalled. All this is accomplished without an external DMX controller and is perfect for standalone displays in retail, trade shows, and more.
The DMX4dim includes a wired DMX data port. Typically, this port is used to output data to nearby fixtures including fog machines, moving lights, and projector dousers. The DMX port can also be configured as a DMX input, allowing the DMX2dim to be used as a wired dimmer.
The internal wireless DMX receiver in the DMX4dim operates identically to the RC4Magic DMXio in receiver mode. The RC4 DMX miniplug port can used with a range of DMX adaptors, including 3-pin and 5-pin male and female XLR connectors. The most common adaptor is the RC4DMX5FA with 5-pin female XLR connector.
Several of Katy Perry’s prop fabricators chose the DMX4dim to solve their design challenges.
Projects and productions in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand should consider our RC4Magic-900 system. The 900MHz band is far away from WiFi, Bluetooth and other 2.4GHz wireless technology. For worldwide use in all markets, the 2.4GHz RC4Magic system is recommended.
