Multiverse® Studio Kit At Television Series Everything's Gonna Be Okay on Freeform
Chief Lighting Technician Carlos M. Torres and his team from Everything's Gonna Be Okay on Freeform were looking for a robust and reliable wireless DMX solution for shooting Season II of the show at Calvert Studios. Upon prep, they found that the Multiverse Studio Kit 900MHz/2.4GHz provided the broadcast planning tools they needed with RadioScan™ Spectrum Analyzer, and the dual band technology, long battery life, and contactless charging they were looking for.

Read more about their experience in this wireless DMX case study with video.
Carlos M. Torres
Speed in lighting setups is of utmost importance. We needed a way to adjust our lighting intensity and color temperatures on the fly. The Multiverse Studio Kit was just what we needed. The setup and connectivity was fast and easy. We had all 6 receivers working with zero, yes, zero connection fails for the entire season.”

QolorFLEX LED Tape at Old Raleigh Distillery in NC
As part of the renovation of a 10,000 square foot warehouse-turned-distillery, tasting room, and event space in downtown Zebulon, North Carolina, Olde Raleigh Distillery teamed up with the design and fabrication team at Design Dimension Inc. to create an eye-catching centerpiece that would bring light to a dark wall in the distillery, and also double as a merchandise display with storage.

Wanting to create a uniform glow without hot spots over a large surface area, the team sought LED tape options that could be used with acrylic diffusers to create a bold, well-blended glow. Find out how QolorFLEX LED Tape in Warm White and QolorFLEX Connect 10 helped them achieve their goals.

“The client wanted the ability to change color as well as match the existing lighting in the space. QolorFLEX Quad Chip RGBWW LED Tape was the right product for the job. It is a pleasure to work with, especially in combination with the QolorFLEX Connect 10.”
