SHoW DMX Popular Choice

Since City Theatrical launched SHoW DMX at LDI 2007, it has become the choice of lighting professionals around the world when they need wireless DMX. SHoW DMX is used on nearly every Broadway, off Broadway, West End, and Las Vegas show that uses wireless DMX, as well as in live music and permanent installations.

City Theatrical says it is the only wireless DMX manufacturer that backs up its claims with laboratory data.

Some recent uses include: U2 360° tour, Ragtime (Broadway), West Side Story (Broadway), Happiness (Lincoln Center), In The Heights (National Tour), Avenue Q (National Tour), Grease  (National Tour), Philadelphia Avenue of the Arts, Colorado Avalanche at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Dirty Dancing (Berlin), Hairspray (West End), Legally Blonde (West End), Royal Opera Copenhagen, Somerset House (London), Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (West End), Bosphorus Bridge (Turkey), and Kinderdijk windmills (Netherlands).

'Green' Theatre features Eos, Ion Controls

A state-of-the-art venue needs state-of-the-art equipment, and the newly rebuilt Henry Miller's Theater, sustainably designed and constructed to LEED standards and billed as the first “carbon-neutral theater,” is chock full of efficient features including an ETC lighting package. The premiere show was the musical, Bye Bye Birdie, with lighting design by Ken Billington whose design was programmed on the theatre's new Eos and Ion lighting control consoles.

Henry Miller's Theater operates under the umbrella of Roundabout Theater Company. Virtually all Broadway and off-Broadway theaters use some form of ETC lighting equipment, and current shows like South Pacific, Rock of Ages, and Next to Normal employ ETC Eos-family control consoles.
