Connectivity to the Vortex8 is well up to date with LumenRadio TimoTwo built in, Ethernet, Bluetooth, 5pin DMX, Wifi, USB type A and Creamsource Accessory port. Interaction between Vortex8 and various third party instruments and protocols are endless opening various wired and wireless control options. We are geeks for high quality and precision engineering, and loads of our geekiness has spilled into the Vortex Series. Built with elegance and durability in mind the aluminium machining and technopolymer infusion has allowed us to achieve our goals. Containment and simplicity is also achieved in this design, with the PSU as well as the antennas integrated into the head.
