How is our Show Created 

We Capturing the Magic with the power of RGB Smart Pixels


In 2020 we made the jump from a basic led animated display (where you could turn strands of lights on or off to music), to a smart pixels display were we could control every aspect of every light bulb individually to include color and brightness.

We started off with 4524, 12 volt regulated pixels with plans to expand over the years. Our lights are mounted into strips or props made out of Coro Plastic, but being a DYI hobby you can use your imagination and place them in just about anything. The lights are then connected to series a series of controller boxes strategically placed around our display. We then use a program called Xlights to sequence the lights to music, save it to our master controller that sends the sequences out to all the props and the music to our FM transmitter so that you can hear the music in your car.

 

This has been quite a journey and we look forward to sharing our knowledge with you as we expand our display.

What is a Smart Pixel

How do they work


Unlike traditional led lights which are Just one color. RGB Smart Pixels have 3 lights in them one Red and Green and One Blue.  With the help of the computer chip in the bulb I can control the Hue of each bulb and brightness leading to 16,777,216 different color combinations. 

 

With the use of Xlights Software we can then control every light in our display individually. which is how we are able to synchronize the lights to music. The average 3 minute song can take any ware from 20 -60 hours of programing time depending on complexity of the effect and props.
