Systems for large-scale light shows require a large amount of electrical wire, leading to problems with the mobility of the control unit and the maintenance of the lighting system. A wireless DMX link between the main controller and the light controllers (e.g., dimmers) would be instrumental in overcoming these constraints. Previously developed wireless DMX links are typically limited to smallscale shows with small audiences. Because the audience uses wireless devices, data transmission by wireless DMX link cannot be guaranteed in realtime. Hence, in this work, a novel wireless lightingcontrol system with a wireless DMX link for largescale light shows is proposed. The proposed wireless DMX link can transmit data in real time, and store data beforehand, which can called upon during the light show with simple wireless commands.
