RC4M-900SX DMXpix Dual Pixel String Driver

$480.25

Product Information

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 system is recommended for customers in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and for all international tours. This is the only 900MHz pixel string driver on the market and it includes the RC4Magic Two-Year Warranty.

Each pixel driver purchase includes one set of Phoenix Connectors.

YOU MUST UPDATE RC4 COMMANDER SOFTWARE WHEN ADDING NEW DEVICES TO RC4MAGIC SYSTEMS. THIS UPDATE IS MANDATORY FOR COMPATIBILITY WITH BOTH OLD AND NEW VERSIONS OF RC4MAGIC FIRMWARE.  Visit our downloads page. 

 

 

The RC4Magic-900 SX DMXpix Dual Pixel String Driver can be used to easily control up to two strings of pixel tape, and enables users to create beautiful and unique pixel effects, all without wires, and all without using an excessive amount of DMX channels.

The RC4Magic-900SX DMXpix combines that classic features of the ever popular DMXpix and takes in into 900MHz. Interference from other wireless devices is literally a thing of the past when using the 900SX series of products, and the result is a signal that’s faster, more secure, and more reliable.

Using the RC4 Custom Pixel Profiles™, combined with keyframing, designers can create beautiful unique pixel patterns and effects for up to 1000 pixels while keeping the number of DMX channels to a manageable level. The compact, wireless DMXpix receives all 512 channels of a DMX universe and controls 2 pixel strings of up to 500 pixels each (1000 pixels total). With the DMXpix, designers can now say goodbye to complex consoles, media servers, and endless wiring.

The RC4Magic-900 SX DMXpix features include:

  • PWM frequencies Optimizations for power handling, smoothest resolution, eliminating artifacts in video, and eliminating noise in audio systems.
  • RC4 Digital Persistence™ A carefully engineered thermal model makes LEDs fade up and down like incandescent and halogen lamps.
  • HSL Color Controller Choose to use Hue/Saturation/Level (brightness) control of color if desired.
  • RC4 ColorMatch™ Match color palettes and white-balance different LED sources from different manufacturers.
  • RC4 Flkr Effects Engine™ Create personalized visual effects, including fire, welding spark, and much more.
  • Remote Device Management (RDM) The DMX standard for device configuration, including E1.37 dimmer control extensions.
  • RC4 CodeLoader Update firmware to add features.  Since 2014, more than 10 new features have been added at no cost to users!

Trying to match the colors of pixel strings from different manufacturers? RC4 Wireless makes it simple, using RC4 ColorMatch™. Adjust the color balance of each string to ensure a consistent palette, even when products are from different manufacturers, have different control protocols, and even have differences due to variations in LED binning. The Pixel Color Order feature ensures all pixels in a large system will address colors with the same sequence, usually red, green then blue. By doing color correction and pixel color order in the 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 undesirable color variation.

DMXpix_PLASA2015_2_psWorried about pixel string compatibility? The DMXpix is incredibly versatile and supports all popular pixel string protocols, including WS2801, WS2812, APA102, LPD8806, and more. Need to install the drivers for a new pixel product? It’s easy using the RC4 CodeLoader Cable™; simply download the drivers installing them on the DMXpix.

The internal wireless DMX receiver operates identically to the DMXio in receiver mode. The mini-plug wired DMX data port can be used with a range of RC4 DMX cables, including 3-pin and 5-pin male and female XLR adapters. The most common adapter is the RC4DMX5FA with 5-pin female XLR connector.  This port can output DMX data to nearby fixtures including fog machines, moving lights, and projector dousers.
