    Default Looking for outdoor P5 or P10 panels

    I am wanting to upgrade my P10 signs so they are more visible during the day and was told outdoor panels are much brighter. They will be need to be compatible with FalconPlayer on either the Beaglebone or Raspberry PI. Last Halloween and Christmas I ran a 3x2 from a PI using nano matrix pihat and 4x6 with the Beaglebone using an octoscroller.

    Does anybody have a list of compatible outdoor panels and by chance a reputable source to purchase them? I will need around 50 panels.

    None of the outdoor panels will work with the Pi (unless you use a Colorlight or linsn adapter). Almost any of them will work with the BeagleBones. If by chance you end up with one that doesn't work with the Beaglebones, send one to me for a few days and I'll get it to work.

    I just got delivered 4 x P5 outdoor panels from Daniel Zhang to test with before I replace my 36 indoor P10 panels. They are 1/8 scan and I am currently running from a BBB with octoscroller but I am going to moving them to the colorlight 5A this year.

    I will need to redesign my cabinet to support the outdoor panels and can see that they need to be mounted to a flat plate on the back so that they can be sealed with the silicon seals that they have provided for the back of the panels. I think I will use some polycarbonate sheet for this.
