This is a concept to working prop, end-to-end tutorial or as they say in commercials for a popular Italian, tomato-based sauce, “It’s in there.”

Following up from the last episode, I show more power injection and talk about the numbers a little. I also compare 5V pixels to 12V pixels at the wall. The difference is surprising!
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.
