Main Light Industries Acquires Wireless Solution’s W-DMX BlackBox F-1 G4 Transceiver Via A.C.T Lighting

Main Light Industries, Inc., the Wilmington, Delaware-based firm, which has become one of the largest rental houses in the country, has invested in Wireless Solution’s W-DMX BlackBox F-1 G4 transceiver. A.C.T Lighting is a North American distributor for Wireless Solution Sweden AB, the world’s leading manufacturer of wireless lighting control equipment.

Main Light was prompted to purchase the W-DMX when it was looking for a wireless solution to work with its Clay Paky Igloos as well as other wireless units in its inventory. Igloos are tough, sturdy, dome-shaped enclosures that offer complete protection against rain and humidity and maintain a perfect working temperature for fixtures even in hot or sub-zero conditions.

“We tested various wireless DMX products, and Wireless Solution’s W-DMX box proved to be the most reliable,” says Main Light’s head of client relations, John DiEleuterio. “We will primarily be using it for festivals and outdoor events. The Igloos are a perfect complement to and protection for the more compact line of Clay Paky fixtures, and the W-DMX on board allows them to be more easily used in remote locations.”

Wireless Solution’s W-DMX range of products is the consistent choice of top professionals in the lighting industry. It is the only company to offer dual-band 2.4 and 5.8GHz (optional) with RDM and adaptive frequency hopping in both OEM single PCB or Standard Tranceivers with FLEX function to change a unit to be both transmitter and receiver. The W-DMX BlackBox F-1 G4 comes standard with RDM. All F-Models are both transmitters and receivers and offer a full FLEX with optional anything in/anything out (for example: DMX in, Art-Net out or s/ACN in, DMX out).

Some of Main Light’s clients have already deployed the W-DMX, in conjunction with Clay Paky Igloos, for projects. Len Applefeld, lighting director at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, used the Clay Paky Igloos on Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2013. He said, “The onboard W-DMX was a great feature to have. We had six Igloos on top of the stage roof, and the W-DMX saved us a lot of time by not having to run data.”

Rob Hendry with BEW Productions recently used them for a Halloween event on the Battleship New Jersey on the Delaware River off Camden, New Jersey. “A last-minute addition of Clay Paky Sharpys housed within Igloos were used on the massive cannon turrets of the battleship,” DiEleuterio explains. “Due to the amount of steel on the ship and no sight line, Rob was hesitant to use wireless DMX at first. But the Clay Paky Igloos synched up flawlessly, which he said made for a very pleasant first experience with wireless DMX.”

Main Light, which has increased its inventory of Clay Paky lighting fixtures annually via A.C.T Lighting (the company is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky), found its new Wireless Solution’s W-DMX purchase marked another positive encounter with A.C.T Lighting. “We expect and receive nothing but the best in the way of support when it comes to dealing with A.C.T,” DiEleuterio reports.
