Color Grid Array…

March 14, 2007

Looks like building the circuit is going to be beyond our expertise and timeframe talking with EE and the resellers.

Our next choice is to pick up a pre-packaged lighting controller from a reseller like Animated Lighting. They provide lighting control boards that allow for custom solutions. The board has 16 channels so we could build a 16 x 16 array or smaller of either single color lights or I Color RGB systems. The rgb system is the nicest solution because it would allow us to build the array and each pixel would be any rgb color we program it to be… so basically we could create images using the array. Of course this is the high-end solution and costs approximately $500 per 50 lights. Using single color LED systems the price drops to around 75 cents a light so it is a lot more affordable.

The animated lighting controller is decently affordable, which costs around $300, but the circuits were going to cost around $45.00 each and we need 8 of them so i think the pre-built controller seems like the way to go as long as it interfaces with non-proprietary software.

I spent about a half hour with their sales guy today at Animated Lighting but i need to talk more with the tech guy who is calling me tonight or tomorrow. I will give everyone an update in class tomorrow. See you around 4:30pm.
