RC4M-900SX DMXpix Dual Pixel String Driver
The compact RC4Magic-900SX DMXpix, which includes RC4 Custom Pixel Profiles, makes creating complex pixel patterns easy on two separate pixel strings with a minimum of DMX channels.
Operating in the 900MHz band– the fastest, safest, most stable wireless band– the 900SX DMXpix is recommended for customers in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Brazil. This is the only 900MHz pixel string driver on the market, and it includes the RC4Magic Lifetime Warranty.
The RC4Magic-900SX DMXpix is a tiny wireless DMX driver for specifically controlling two strings (or other configurations) of pixel LEDs. It operates in the 900MHz band, which results in increased speed, improved security, and improved signal stability. It also includes the RC4Magic Lifetime Warranty.
The original 2.4GHz RC4Magic Series 3 DMXpix is suggested for customers outside of the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Brazil and for all international tours.
The 900SX DMXpix (and the original DMXpix) supports all the popular LED chip protocols (WS2801, WS2812, APA102, LPD8806 and more). The RC4 CodeLoader allows drivers for new pixel products to be added by simply downloading and installing firmware updates. RC4 OneTouch™, RC4MagicPC Remote Configuration Software, or wired RDM, enables users to specify the LED string type, DMX start channel, and various configuration parameters for each driver, making every LED chip protocol a perfect match for the 900SX DMXpix.
Need to create a pixel string with complex patterns and a variety of colors? The 900SX DMXpix makes it easy to do a variety of complex tasks without using excessive channels. Traditional mapping of DMX to pixel strings consumes vast numbers of channels — a single universe of 512 channels can control only 170 red-green-blue pixels. The RC4Magic-900SX DMXpix uses patent-pending RC4’s patented Custom Pixel Profiles to deliver the same design versatility and control to designers, while vastly reducing the number of console DMX channels required to render beautiful effects using up to 1000 pixel LEDs and generating up to 3000 output channels.
The 900SX DMXpix (and the original DMXpix) uses Keyframing, a Custom Pixel Profile feature, to create effects using any desired length of pixels, group multiple LEDs into larger “virtual pixels” if desired, and then tailor how the keyframe propagates down the pixel chain without needing additional DMX channels to do so.
Working with pixel strings with different chipsets can make color matching difficult. RC4 ColorMatch™, which is an integral part of the 900SX DMXpix, enables users to adjust the color balance of each string to ensure a consistent palette, even when combining products from different manufacturers, different control protocols, and differences due to variations in LED binning. By delegating this task to the 900SX DMXpix pixel driver, rather than managing this in a console or media server, multiple different pixel strings can be controlled from the same DMX channels without unsightly color variation
