After installing lots of dmx dc boards this year and deciding that 2013 I'd better put out some pixels I came up with the revelation that it would be easier to run pixel data all over the place and use that data to drive DC boards. As the 2811 pixels offer much better range than the 2801 pixels I decided that 2811 data is the way to go. What I'm planning on making up are 1 or more different boards that appear to the network as 2811 pixels but have high current dc outputs. I'm thinking that I'll probably make up 15, 30 and 60 channel boards an they'll have similar currents to my AAHMega60 dmx board (30A max per 15 channels). I'm also planning that the DC is isolated from the pixel stream so different power supplies can be used. Because of the simpler electronics and dramatically reduced features I'm hoping to get the cost per channel down a lot closer to what the 27 channel Ray Wu board is. I'm also planning on making these boards so that they slot straight into the cheap Masters boxes. Watch this space for updates as they happen.
