How to control your CrowdLED

How it works

All our remote controlled LED wristbands and other products have a built-in radio signal receiver. You only need one CrowdLED DMX Base Station to control thousands of units to light up in any color or patern. Our Base Station is the size of a shoebox and works with the industry standard DMX protocol. It allows you to control the bracelets together with the rest of the show's lighting, giving you the power to create a unique and unforgettable experience for your guests.

We can deliver a turnkey performance, or you take charge with our plug-and-play feature. Read below what is best for you and your event.

Step 3:

CrowdLED’s Pre-Visualizer

CrowdLED’s Visualizer is our proprietary software that visualizes upcoming events in a 3D virtual environment. With the visualizer it is possible to easily test limitless different ideas. Footage is quickly shared between lighting designers, creative teams and clients. Therefore, the visualizer accelerates a rapid back-and-forth between all parties involved.

Either we program the visualizer as part of our turn-key process and update the pre-viz drafts based on your demand. Or we provide your team with the required software and gear so you can use the visualizer internally during your pre-viz process.

With our Visualizer visual concepts can easily be tested and integrated into a show. A key feature here, is that music and other visual effects of the show can be easily synchronized with our controllable LED wristbands. With the visualization of the concepts, we know that everyone has the same goal when it comes to designing a spectacular show. CrowdLED’s Visualizer makes the pre-production progress efficient, with more control and creative freedom.

DMX Base Station Control

The CrowdLED DMX Base station is a plug-and-play transmitter to operate all our our remote-controlled LED wearables . It works as a DMX to radio frequency interface and is controllable by any light operator on a standard lighting console.

Our system is plug & play and requires no extra rigging. It is set up by our technicians and is ready to use at your event. The hardware setup takes 2 minutes. One CrowdLED transmitter has a range of up to 750 meters to cover 1.75 million square meters - so basically any arena.

Our patented CrowdLED technology allows you to assign wristbands to specific groups enabling you to control sections of your crowd individually. Use the wristbands as interactive signals for crowd control.

This allows for some breathtaking special effects. Let a wave of light roll through the stadium, or create an endless variety of light patters on your audience. Create astonishing light shows by playing with the effects at your disposal. Pick any colors and flashing mode.
