What is RC4?

RC4 products turn theatrical props, costumes, and set pieces into DMX-controlled lighting fixtures. With best-in-class wireless control, and batteries for untethered operation, all your props, practicals, and costumes integrate into your scenes and cues, managed by your lighting designer and board operator like all the other fixtures in your show.

With product families focused on specific markets, RC4 makes ideal devices for exactly what you do. RC4Magic-900 provides incredible range, while operating far away from the 2.4GHz band. RC4 LumenDim uses 2.4GHz LumenRadio CRMX, the defacto standard for wireless DMX in motion picture production.

How it Works

All RC4 systems are controlled by wired DMX from a lighting console. DMX is the long-standing industry standard for entertainment lighting control, and RC4 is 100% compatible with it.

An RC4 wireless transmitter converts wired DMX data into proprietary and robust digital wireless signals encoded with unique system IDs. Every RC4 customer, user, and show is assigned a unique RC4 Private IDentity that belongs only to them — every system is a totally independent Virtual Private Network (VPN).

With a full universe of wireless DMX out on the airwaves, a range of small, low-power devices can pick up those signals and do a range of different things with them:

  • Control LEDs or halogen lamps;
  • Position servo motors for things like puppet eyes and ears;
  • drive up to 1000 pixels from a single driver that is barely larger than a matchbox.

Who Uses It

RC4 Wireless system security, the result of carefully controlled RC4 Digital identities for every user, is the reason why Disney, Cirque du Soleil, and other high-profile users depend on RC4 Wireless every day.

We’re also a mainstay in top theatre and production schools across the United States and around the world. Besides the USA, we have users in Europe, Japan, China, Australia, South Africa, and touring shows going everywhere imaginable.

Wireless DMX with the best warranty and the best support.
