SUPERNOVA 4 – THE LIGHTING RIG MANAGEMENT TOOL
SuperNova™ in its all-new 4.0 version offers a complete system management tool for monitoring and configuring your lighting network. With support for both CRMX enabled transmitters and Art-Net nodes from other manufacturers, SuperNova provides a clear and detailed view of the status of your entire lighting network – both wireless and wired devices. RDM enabled fixtures can be displayed, monitored, and configured from the software, with the configuration of common tasks just a click away.

- Geographical view: Visualize your entire system on one screen as linked icons with a signal strength of all wireless units.
- Coexistence view: See the radio spectrum of the operating band, see where your traffic is, and other wireless systems in real-time. You can also block parts of the band from being used by the CRMX system completely, this is good for instance if a venue demands that your equipment stays away from those frequencies even though they are not currently in use.
- Light or dark theme; Choose the type of UI that fits your use the best – dark themes for FOH usage, the light theme for outdoor installations for instance.
- DMX map: With easy drag-and-drop, set DMX addresses for your entire wired and wireless RDM system.
- DMX monitor: Monitor how, where, and what DMX data flows through your system. Wonderful for fault finding.
- Virtual Console: There’s no longer a need for a huge lighting desk during setup; use SuperNova instead to easily test your fixtures.
- Topological view: View the topology of your system to track errors and identify problems immediately.
- Feedback: Get error alarms, warnings, operational status, temperatures, fan speed, signal strength and more from all RDM enabled devices that support it.
- Notifications: Get errors, warnings, etc sent to you by e-mail or through the use of Prowl to your cellphone.
- Logging: Errors and warnings can be saved in a SQL database.
- Cross-platform: CRMX SuperNova is platform independent and can be used on both Windows and Mac OS X.
- Upgradeable: Free online access to new versions of CRMX SuperNova.
How do I manage my system?
A computer running SuperNova can be connected to the show network and run as a monitor for the whole system. Each sensor and signal can be monitored – if a sensor goes outside of a range, it can trigger an alert. Alerts can be configured as e-mails, push notifications, or system logs – depending on preferences. By setting a relevant monitoring system, it is possible to reduce maintenance routines and proactively resolve problems in the rig before they become issues with the production.
What about non-wireless fixtures?
By default, SuperNova can communicate with all CRMX products with Ethernet connectivity. This enables monitoring of the wireless link and any RDM enabled devices connected to RDM compatible CRMX receivers. However, LumenRadio recognizes that not all fixtures are connected wirelessly in typical systems and SuperNova also allows communication with Art-Net compliant devices from other manufacturers.
