AsteraBox CRMX Transmitter Box
The AsteraBox CRMX Transmitter Box from Astera acquires Bluetooth signal from the AsteraApp, then sends RF signals to the battery-powered light. The App lets you create complex colors, effects, and settings that will be remembered by the lights without a constant wireless link.
Monitoring works while you control lights by the app and also if lights are controlled via DMX. Set DMX addresses and profiles for one light or several lights. Fifty units can be prepared in less than five minutes. After the job, a quick master reset of all settings and lights makes them ready for the next event.
The AsteraBox works as a wireless 24 GHz DMX transmitter; just connect it with the included XLR adapter to your DMX console and you can transmit one DMX universe with the stable LumenRadio CRMX wireless protocol. The DMX module in Astera battery-powered PARs is compatible with CRMX and other wireless DMX standards, with the possible exceptions of W-DMX G5 and City Theatrical.
Simple commands like on/off, colors, preloaded effects, etc., can also be sent directly to the lights with Astera's infrared remote control. When programming lights with the AsteraApp, the IR remote can be used for confirming settings on individual lights. And AsteraBox CRMX has great monitoring capabilities enabling monitoring battery status, radio signal, DMX address, and which lights you have targeted. Diagnose individual lights and even get informed if a light is being moved or switched off.

Saturday/Sunday are only not paid rental days if you wish to return Saturday/Sunday and cannot (because we are closed). In that case, you will return first thing Monday morning.
To schedule to return Monday morning without getting charged for Saturday/Sunday: Set the return for Friday at 5:30pm. (If you are unable to select a return time of 5:30pm, the equipment is unavailable for weekend rental). During checkout, write in the notes that you will be returning Monday morning. Please be sure to return Monday at 8am.
Equipment can be picked up between 4:30pm and 6pm the day before the rental period if the item(s) are available. Please write in the notes during checkout that you would like early pickup.
Returns can happen between 8-10am the day following the rental period (Except Mondays. Reference Weekend Rentals above). Renters will be given a minimum of a $10 late fee or 20% of the day rate charged. Whichever is greater.
Orders made during our closed hours will not be processed until the next morning that we are open and therefore will allow for some discrepancies.
We share our inventory between our Orem and Salt Lake City store and do our best to have equipment in the location that you wish to pick up. Consequently, last minute orders cannot be guaranteed to be all in one location as we are not given time to prep.
