The sell-out musical sensation Wicked has hit the United Kingdom and Ireland touring circuit with a sleeker and altogether more agile show with the help of wireless DMX products from RC4 Wireless/Soundsculpture Inc. and Lumen Radio.
The Wicked UK and Ireland tour is one of the biggest tours of its kind. The aim was to retain the same production values and scale as the West End show, while scenically and technically making it easy to transport. Part of this process has been to replace the complex cabling that fed moving scenic elements with a range of powerfully compact wireless DMX products from RC4 Wireless. Utilizing state-of-the-art LumenRadio CRMX rf technology, these products include RC4 LumenDim4 4-channel low voltage dimmers, RC4 LumenData receivers and SuperNova software from Lumen Radio.
