    If your cpu is a p4 or better your good to go .

    as far as the .bmp 1024x 728 is common , you may need to play with to suit you monitor though.

    Joe,
    As you know (by my other posts) I have been struggling with HLS.

    Thank you,Thank you for doing this presentation.

    I won't say the light has come on yet,but it is 75% brighter and I have a new hope of using HLS.

    Thanks again.

    as far as the bmp, some conversion programs do not work well with HLS. I would suggest you use "paint" to convert your picture to bmp format. I know that this works as I used it for mine and have no issues. Hope this helps.

    Joe, Thank you again. I am just watching it now.

    Thank you Joe, excellent work. You really cleared up folders for me.

    Thanks Joe! You definitely gave me a solid foundation for starting to explore HLS! I appreciate the great work you have done to this point!

    Great video Joe -- and very timely! I was just getting ready to use HLS to test my vertical matrix. However, you mentioned in the video that RGB channels cannot cross universe boundaries. This limitation does not exist with Lynx smart strings nor with the LOR sequencer (which is what I used last year). I'm hesitating to reprogram all of my smart string controllers just to use HLS (and make them incompatible with all of my 2012 sequences).

    I am curious to know what the vertical matrix is , is it 3d ? or just x -y like a grid matrix ?

    Hls does support Rj's ether dongle i believe , if that is what you mean by crossing boundaries.

    It is just an x-y matrix at the moment (was my RGB tree during show season). In my show, I have been driving it with a pixelnet usb dongle; in testing I have been driving it with the etherdongle. Either way, the 171st pixel uses 2 channels from universe 1 and the first channel of universe 2.

    Matt:

    If you are using PixelNet (4096 channels) - HLS will send them a as a single block.

    The 170 pixels (510 channels) is a DMX controller concern.

    If you use PixelNet --- in HLS - just make all 4096 channels a single universe and also mark them - "Multi-DMX".

    Matt:

    I posted above with regard to PixelNet.

    The 510 channel / 170 Pixels is not an issue with HLS. They are requirements by either the Transport Layer (E131 as an example) or the Controller (which operates on DMZ packets and controls only full pixels.

    HLS has implemented several output mechanisms that are not bounded by the DMX 510 channel requirement - again Pixenel as an example.

    Hope that helps.
