The FPGA-based Pixblasters LED controller enables DIY enthusiasts and signage professionals, even those with minimal technical skills, to turn a bunch of addressable RGB LED strips into economically viable and professional-looking digital signage video LED displays that may be curved, glued to different surfaces and span entire buildings
Zagreb, Croatia, October 8, 2019 — Pixblasters™ makers team today announced the launch of its first crowdfunding campaign via Crowd Supply platform with a goal of $18,000. The funds raised during the campaign will be put toward the completing of the first lot production of their Pixblasters Video LED Controller.
The FPGA-based Pixblasters LED controller enables DIY enthusiasts and signage professionals, even those with minimal technical skills, to turn a bunch of addressable RGB LED strips into immense video LED displays. It supports new levels of professional-grade digital signage that cannot be attained by standard LED modules. The LED strips can be curved and glued to different surfaces to form giant, economically viable and remotely controlled video installations that may span entire buildings.
The Pixblasters Video LED Controller connects as an ordinary monitor to any computer and any operating system, even the small single-board Raspberry Pi Zero or similar, to display the user-selected portion of the monitor image on up to 16,384 LEDs at 60 frames per second (FPS). Multiple daisy-chained Pixblasters MS1 controllers can drive high-resolution LED displays built of hundreds of thousands of perfectly synchronized LEDs that display any visual content with absolutely no programming required.
“Our controller makes possible video displays with addressable LED strips without any of usual constraints on the size, graphics and video content, display management, or media storage,” said Goran Fiolić from Pixblasters. “It enables users to simply plug in the monitor cable and display any video content on the attached LEDs, just like on a regular computer monitor.”
The Pixblasters Video LED Controller can be used with virtually any digital signage software and managed on the same level as high-end professional LED displays. This makes generation of the display content super easy and enables users to quickly define scheduled playlists, combine video and graphics, incorporate news feeds and social networking posts, etc., by using either open source or fully commercial digital signage software.
