Well I've put out a little video sample of the CCR matrix that i have been working on and sequencing through Ligtshow Pro.

you can take a look here. The video quality isn't the best and there is a lot more that can be done on this matrix including scrolling test.

Fasteddys CCR Matrix (12x16 - 192 RGB Pixels)

The matrix details:

The matrix is 1220mm x 1800mm (47 x 71 inches) this is the size of the corex sheet that the CCRs are siliconed to, the strips are spaced approx 110 mm apart and the orientation of the strip to the corex is very important for correct light diffusion. The corex should have the internal ribs running long ways (across the sheet) so the strip is set up so it starts at the top and goes down 12 pixels (1200mm) then joined and spaced 110mm apart the second CCR section then runs upwards and so on in a zig zag fashion until you have as many columns as required for me it was 16 columns which makes 4 CCRs at 12 pixels per column for a total of 192 usable pixels with 8 pixels that can be kept a spares. (the CCR pixels are not adressed and can be used in any order)

Each pixel of the CCR is 100mm long so i made the matrix with approx 110mm gap between each CCR section (you can make this 100mm if you wish) this allows a matrix pixel to be created that is approx 100mm by 110mm when the second sheet of corex is put on top of the CCRs. This then allows the light to diffuse into a matrix due to the 120 degree light angle but stops it diffusing into the next pixel due to the rib orientation.

The beauty about this matrix is that you can easily build it in a night, its light weight, strong, weather resistant, bright and has many pixels. You can do scrolling text, animations and great transitional effects
