🎄5V RGB Pixel Power Injection & Prop Build (2019) 🎄
I built a large 4’x16′ pixel matrix using Chroma Mesh from Boscoyo and 1,024 5V pixels. I show how to model this in xLights to get the wiring plan and I built is as a single string of lights using one controller connection. This requires a lot of power injection. but it’s pretty easy to do on a matrix.
🎄P10 Panel to P5 Panel Conversion (2019)🎄
I noticed problems with the P10 panels at the end of last year and decided to upgrade to P5 panels. Simple swap of the hardware, but the software on the BeagleBone Black gave me some trouble.

Some Good, Some Bad, Some Ugly (2018)
