    Default Coro pixel matrix, 1 universe down, 35 to go!

    Well I decided to replace my Merry Christmas sign on my roof with a Jumbo Tron if you will. I started loading the pixels into to the coro sheet that will be mounted to a frame later this weekend.

    I loaded up 168 pixels and now have 11 more universes of 168 pixels to go and finish this panel. Then do it 2 more times.

    Does this remind anyone else of all the discussion there was regarding a multi-color LEDTriks?

    Anyway... good luck, may you have fingertips of steel and we look forward to seeing the finished product.

    I see your using the raw 8mm pixels, or did you get them with 5mm?, to keep the cost down. They should fit tight enough to keep the water out from the front but how are you sealing them up from the back? That's going to be one big display.

    I did go with 8mm pixels. The 5mm pixels would have looked better because I could have made a tighter grid. These are 1" centers on the hole spacing but you can't go much smaller due to the pcb size. Since these are going to be in an enclosure I can get away with them being raw. Only the led bulb tip will be exposed so they are no different than the epoxy coated ones.

    The Jumbo Tron is made up of 3 panels 28x72. When put together they will make a 28x216 grid. Each panel is controlled by a single e682 running 12 universes with 12 strings of 168 pixels. Each panel has 2016 pixels. Each panel is powered by a Meanwell SE-600-12 12v 50a power supply.

    The raw pixels are much less expensive and Ray likely gave him a good price. I'll take a SWAG at around $500 for the pixels.

    I bet with that many pixels you'll want to get a custom diming curve so they never go to 100% as they will light up the neighborhood.

    Bottomed line is that it will look glorious.

    I wish only $500 for pixels! that would be about $0.08 per pixel. I ordered 6400 pixels just for this. with some other stuff. The shipping alone for that shipment was around $800. I actually did a special order with Todd to get these and a bunch of other stuff.
