    Matrix looks great! Must be very satisfying to see your creation come to life

    yes indeed . the effect creation learning curve has been a year long task .
    I can't wait to play with my tree as the 5v pixels are 1000% better than any of this 12v junk .
    I have tried 3 different 12v pixel types now and the are absolutely terrible in both color and performance compared to 5v .
    I am quite particular in my view and if I were asked to recommend a pixel type >
    just get tls 3001 series ic and you will be set .
    Cheers and best of luck for 2013

    Sorry no links , I just completed the build on this yesterday and am now starting effect testing .

    it is a very basic build though

    wire mesh > wood frame > 473 x 12v ws 2801 pixels > black coro backing >
    1 x e682 controller
    and you got yourself a matrix. :)

    Thanks for your support , My whole show may not be so Whole for 2013
    it may be in a few parts ... kinda like television series these days

    film 2 episodes and release the rest in 12 months , lol .
    I am determined to have a show just the same .
    I can't wait to see the results of all you folks efforts for 2013 as I know you are all
    working feverishly towards getting your displays ready .
    Good luck and remember this is a fun hobby > no stress at all :)
    lmao
