DMX Control Systems

DMX has been the standard for lighting control in theatre since the early 1990s and is now finding it's way into architectural applications as technology allows lighting design for retail and commercial spaces to become more dynamic.
ShowTrek use components from a range of suppliers around the world to produce versatile lighting control solutions that cater for the requirements of almost any installation.
The DMX control signal can be easily converted to other common lighting control technologies including DSI, DALI and 1-10V analogue allowing the greatest possible combination of lighting fixtures to be connected to a single control unit.

ShowTrek is proud to be a distributor for Sunlite / Nicolaudie, a French company with over 20 years experience in lighting software and market leaders in USB-DMX controllers.
