  1. Expanded Mode Expanded Mode is a highly innovative and technologically advantageous pixel layout scheme for PixLite pixel controllers. What is Expanded Mode? When working with pixel lights, the chip will either utilise an external clocking source, or it will only use a single data line. If there is a clock ...
  2. Adjustable Clock Rates PixLite devices offer a unique ability to a adjust the clock speed of pixels that utilize an external clock line. Pixel protocols that use an external clock line, such as APA102, SK9822, MBI6020, and more, can use this feature to maximize the distance between the pixel output and the first pixel ...
  3. Art-Sync, sACN (E1.31) Sync & Auto Sync Synchronous mode is a method by which all PixLite® devices in a lighting installation can output frames together at the same time. The central software or control device that is sending out the lighting data over Ethernet is responsible for generating the extra data required to sync ...
  4. Standard Or Long Range? PixLite pixel controllers can come in many form factors, offering different feature sets and capabilities. Two of the most popular are the standard range pixel control systems and the long range pixel control systems. This article provides an overview of the main differences between these two ...
  5. Refresh Rate Refresh rate refers to the maximum speed at which all the pixels can be updated. This is usually quantified in frames per second (FPS), and typically varies from about 20 FPS at the low end up to 100+ FPS at the high end. What Affects Refresh Rate? Refresh rate is affected by several factors, ...
  6. Power Injection When designing your pixel lighting system there is a need for careful consideration of power. One of the most important decisions that needs to be made is whether to inject power into your pixel lights directly from an external power supply, or to power them through the pixel controller itself. ...
  7. 12V Versus 5V When designing your pixel lighting system there is always a need for careful consideration of power. One of the important decisions that needs to be made is whether to use 5V or 12V pixels. These are the two most common pixel voltage formats available in the market. (24V pixels may also be used, ...
  8. IGMP Snooping Guide In a pixel light display, the network needs to transport large amounts of data from the sending software to the pixel controllers at high speeds. If the display consists of many controllers, with many universes of data, this can be a significant task for the network to achieve. If a network is ...
  9. New to Mk3: Dithering & Gamma Correction With Advatek’s 3rd generation of pixel control firmware, PixLite® Mk3 devices have the ability to apply gamma correction for pixels of all resolutions including a dithering mode to improve resolution on supported pixels. When working with extremely fast refresh rates, dithering artificially ...
  10. New to Mk3: Ethernet Loop-Through Note: This feature is not available on “E” series controllers. With Advatek’s 3rd generation of pixel control firmware, PixLite® devices with dual gigabit Ethernet ports allow Ethernet loop-through and redundant network topologies. Combined with the critically important Universe Data ...
