    Stage Floor Do-Over

    Hi, I did a search through the forums on resurfacing stages which are helpful. I have what I see as a golden opportunity as a result of a disaster. Our black box theater floor was severely damaged by water and had to be sawn out and removed in pieces. The concrete under the stage floor is...

    Just out of curiosity, are the LED strips on top of the floor or is there some kind of protective plexi layer covering the LED's

    Etc Lustr 2 vs the new Stand LED Leko

    hi all, does anyone have experience with one or both of these fixtures? They have a comparable LED engine and I think they probably have very similar color gamuts. I am looking for a brightness comparision, ease of use, maintenance etc.Thanks! Richard

    These replies have been so helpful! Thanks to all who threw in there expertise. I am looking forward to getting some of this under my belt soon. Next question... Brightness. Which spec should I use to evaluate an LED's ability to compete with stage lighting and what minimum would you recommend?

    Pixel mapping supplies

    i think i get it and that is an excellent anaolgy. So if the "papers" each named a color(mix of 3 channels). Ie red, blue, green, purple, orange, yellow in that order and you switched 2 of the people (leds), the color order would be preserved. So if i bought a bulk collection of individual leds...

    Also when you run hundreds of leds through the controller it seems like you would needSo if you had a batch of Leds not in a string, or if you switched the order of leds, would the controller still communicate with them? I.e are each led preloaded with an address?

    Something I am a little fuzzy on. If we wire a bunch of chip and or bullet leds together, how does each led know its address?

    We are going to upgrade the channel output of our console as part of this project. You are correct in that currently our board is a universe shy of doing the project. The added benefit of the upgrade is that we will be in a better position as we transition our rig to led

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! The controller is cheaper than imagined and it seems like one controller could do the entire project. Yet cheap enough I could use more if need be for easier wiring, I.e maybe one per wall for example.

    I am looking at 3'x3' grid with a pixel at each intersectiion, so its a lot for sure and there has to be the ability to link them together without having to cut tap and solder, that seems like a recipe for failure. I am aware of the three universe requirement and I am working on that front now...

    Pixel mapping supplies

    Hi all, We are hoping to do Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime and would like to branch out into pixel mapping. We would like to create a similar grid feep with pixels at the intersections of the grid. Comes out to be over 400 pixels. I am assuming that we need to purchase Very bright...

    Weldable or weld through primers

    I am going to order that and give it a try. I won't be able to test it out until we can work in the building again.

    Weldable or weld through primers

    Hi All Thanks so much for the replies. I think I am going to go to a weldable primer and then grind the weld sites and avoid having to clean the entire surface. I thought about the oiling idea a bit but in the end decided that all that excess oil may find its way to the drains in our scene yard...
