    Default Matrix size and spacing query

    Looking at doing a couple of pixel matrix next year to cover two small windows, the window sizes are 45”wide x 36” high and looking at 2” spacing. Would this size of matrix be too small and would pictures/video be clear from say 20ft away? Does anyone have a similar size matrix they have pics or video of?

    i would use 1" spacing in that application. however my answer as well as any other answer will be highly subjective. you should experiment to see what looks good to you.

    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    At 2" spacing you are talking about 17 x 22 matrix. You need to get to 32 x 32 just to show decent similes or gifs. You will not be able to show videos or pictures with any clarity. I would do 1" spacing on that small of a grid also and stick to gifs.
