When Showtec Communications Pte Ltd. provided equipment for the extensive lighting effects for the grand opening of Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Resort & Casino in June, W-DMX technology from Wireless Solution Sweden AB went the distance to supply long-distance lighting control.

Wireless Solution’s W-DMX has been hailed as the number one product for interference-free wireless DMX technology. The perfect solution for applications where running DMX cable is impractical, W-DMX uses Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) and Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) to avoid interference.

Fourteen W-DMX Wireless DMX Universes of BlackBox Transmitters and Receivers Systems coordinated without interference with an outdoor parabolic 21db dish to transmit signals for all the lighting controls used in the gala grand opening ceremony for the Marina Bay Sands Resort & Casino, the world’s most expensive standalone casino property.

Showtec, a powerhouse equipment rental, sales and distribution company based in Singapore, worked closely for more than six months with Laser Vision, which engaged lighting designer Colin Baldwin, to plan the entire project. “Preparation and simulated lighting effects testing were conducted in an unfinished building,” notes Henry Ang, Showtec’s founder, “so access to various locations (at the resort and casino) was a challenge.”

Given these conditions, W-DMX had to link long distances: The lighting controls and consoles for the grand opening were positioned about 1.5-2 kilometers across Marina Bay from the new resort and casino in a suite in the Fullerton Hotel. “We chose W-DMX as an assured mode of transmission for all control signals from that location to Marina Bay Sands,” says Ang. “The W-DMX system was very reliable and powerful yet simple to configure and use.”

Among the equipment supplied by Showtec for the grand opening were 14 DTS XR3000s, 18 DTS Arc 1200s, 10 Alpha One 7Ks, eight Syncrolite 7Ks, 10 Syncrolite 5Ks, a Strong 10K Britelight and six Anolis Arc Pad Xtremes. A full-size grandMA 2 served as the lighting controller.
