    Hi,

    Well started putting up stuff today. The first part is my controllers and power supplies. I have a different setup to most, as I have everything in a central location, just outside my front door. I am of the old school when doing shows etc to be able to have all control items in a central place so I can see that it is operating, as well increase security and also piece of mind having the gear not exposed to the elements. The longest run I have is 10m for standard RGB and 5m for the pixels. It also comes in handy when running the show because if there is an issue I can fix it withough having to go out the front.

    I have 4 banks of 4 power supplies, which I modified a slim plastic box to mount in. This are located at the top, primarily for safety so no one touches the dreaded 240V. I am running 18 Ray Wu controllers, 3 x P2 controllers and 1 D2. Pic Below.

    I have 4 x 15 amp power points installed in this space, as well as HDMI, Network cable feeds etc which run back to my studio.

    I also finshed a new fusebox which is up and connected. This conectes to the power supplies and has 28 fuses for all the powerfeeds I need for the pixels.

    In all this year I am running about 7,500 channels in total this year.

    I am going to update as I go with my setup.

    I also have a Facebook page here which I also regularly update

    Bad Facebook link. It still works if you copy and paste the text (not the link address).

    That's an impressive number of controllers (especially the Ray Wu ones). No wonder you have to start setting up this early before the season. Good work!

    Jumbo.
    What controllers are they. I have sent an e.mail to Ray to see if I can have stuff delivered to a hotel in China but not sure what to buy controller wise.
    Thanks for any advise.

    So below is a pic of the new pixels on my house in test mode.

    I have 6 matrix's on the main sections of my house this year, as well as a new roof outline in pixels. These are all attached to electrical conduit in a frame and attached to the house with 20mm conduit clips.

    On the roof I have about 10,000 normal leds in 4 sections in 5 colours (blue, red, white, purple and green).
