A single string like the one you reference to would be considered as 1 channel as thats all that it will use. Now if that same string had 2 sections and you controlled each section individually then that would be considered as 2 channels because thats how many you would have had to use..Boof63 said:does this also apply to strings of led/incandescent lights that are the same colour. If so how many lights-bulbs are counted as channel. ie 20 metre string of warm white (for example) is this equivalent to 3 channels.
Eg DMX universe has 512 channels does this mean i could run 170 strings (length ??? ?)
First time posting. I'm new to this and just to see if I have this right, if I have 8 strings of 50 pixels (400 pixels total), and I want to control each bulb, that 1200 channels which would equate to 3 universes?
