This is my first post here.
I'm a 2D and 3D french motion designer, and I've designed an installation for music live shows (click here to watch the 3D preview), and now I want to build it for real.
I use Arena for a long time, so naturally it's my first choice to control this installation. And because I'm new in the pixel mapping world, I've done many researches which led me to this setup :
I'm aware that's not a professional setup, in a way that I don't use DMX driver (like ENTTEC stuff), but for a first try I don't have that much money to invest.
Speaking of money, before buying all these things, I wanted to ask you if this setup seemed good to you.
And I have a few more questions :
- Is a 20 meters RJ45's cable not too long to send datas ?
- In this video, the man says each outpout of the AlphaPix 16 can only control 166 independent leds, while in the official web page of the product they say up to 340 pixels per outpout. Who is right ? Where the 166's number comes from ?
- Is my calculation correct for the power supply ?
Here is the list of the product I want to buy :
I would be very grateful if you could help me with that.
