We tour with an LD that uses a Hog3 console. Everytime we come across a provider that is all proud of his new wireless dmx setup, it NEVER works. EVER.

The only one that has actually worked every time we've used it is the ADJ Wifly product. I have no idea why, but it tends to work. None of the other options seem work very well (or at all).
Hi Tim,
My wireless DMX wasn't trustworthy until I got the W-DMX gear. Expensive, but it has NEVER had a problem since I brought it in, even in completely congested wireless (2.4 & 5GHz) environments.

Doesn't faze me any. We use cable.

The most expensive wireless in the world is almost as good as a 10 dollar cable!

We used the WDMX units made by Blizzard (Lightcaster) this past weekend at an event in an arena with lighting trusses flown all over , foggers and Hazers all over the arena and it worked flawlessly. That was with sold out crowds of 7-8000 people every night, so lots of cell phones, and bodies. I didn't use any high powered antennas or anything. Just straight out of the box. From what I hear is line of sight is very important, so we flew the receivers in the trusses and had absolutely no issues.
