    Default Adding pixels to my LOR

    Hello all,
    Looking for ideas or suggestions on controlling pixels on my system. I have 5 cmb-16 with all channels hooked to dumb rgb strips. The strips outline my house. I have aquired 25 16 x 16 smart led panels which I plan to make a panel that is 80 pixels by 80 pixels for a total of 6400 pixels or I might leave them as 16x16 individual panels and place them in different spots all over the front of the house. Which ever way I do it, looking for suggestions on which controller to use. Your help will be much appreciated, thank you.

    At 6400 pixels you have gone beyond the capacity of the smaller controllers. Are you looking to do full motion animation? If so then you should plan for no more than 600 pixels on a controller port.

    I like the Falcon controllers. An F16 should be able to drive your panels. Others like the SANDevice controllers. Both use E1.31 as the communications protocol. That many pixels cannot be easily driven by DMX outputs.

    Thanks for the reply. I am not doing full animation at this time. I want to start with circles, squares and lines changing color and size to get familiar with programming.
