Security Against Interference and Other Users

Every RC4Magic wireless system is factory programmed with three unique system IDs. RC4 IDs serve as system identifiers and encryption keys, ensuring interference-free operation anywhere, anytime, worldwide. Every RC4 user and project has their own IDs.

A Public ID is also provided, making it easy to intentionally combine multiple systems if needed.

RC4Magic Series 3 devices maintain wireless compatibility with RC4Magic Series 2 devices, right back to the first systems sold in 2007.  As a leading supplier of wireless dimming worldwide, we understand and respect the investment you have made in RC4Magic technology.  Series 3 introduces many new and exciting features (detailed below).  You can add these devices to the Series 2 system you already have, simply by purchasing Series 3 devices programmed to your existing RC4 System IDs.

As a system transmitter, the DMXio decodes the incoming DMX universe, encodes and encrypts it with your unique digital system ID, and broadcasts it using Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) digital radio. Unlike wired DMX, the broadcast signal includes error checking and correction codes, and is not affected by minor interruptions and interference.

As a receiver, the DMXio decodes the rf signal from the transmitter, rebuilds the DMX universe, and regenerates a standard DMX signal with the same number of channels and the same packet rate as the data going into the transmitter. DMX in and out are compliant with USITT DMX512/1990.
