    I just saw this, and thought It was pretty cool.
    They are RGB pixels, but I have a few questions(as usual)
    Here is the link http://www.holidaycoro.com/rgb/rgb.html

    Question 1: Could I use 12 of these strings for a Mega Tree?
    Question 2: Would each pixel on the string be its own RGB channel, or would the whole sting itself be an RGB channel
    Question 3: They do come in stings right?
    Question 4: Has anyone ever used these before?
    Question 5: What kind of controller do I need for them? I have a D-Light DCx16 and I may be getting a Renard 48LSD, but are their other ways of controlling them?

    By the way, I will be using either Vixen or LSP to run my show, so something that would work with that would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    dmoore posted a note about his comparison table in some other threads.

    All of these are "smart" pixels, but will need a protocol converter to go from DMX to the pixel protocol. Using any of these in a megatree are possible, but not all are recommended. For example, the leftmost column of pixels, if stretched, may allow water to get in between the wires to the circuitry.

    I'd suggest to you, Jesse, to read the other threads in this specific forum to get an idea of what are the pros/cons of using some of these...that is, if you haven't already.
