A smart, cost-effective lighting control solution, the DIN PIXIE is a compact, 2-universe, DMX to LED pixel protocol converter and standalone player, engineered to take any architectural, commercial or entertainment project to the next level.
2-universe DMX to SPI pixel converter & standalone player.
ENTTEC’s DIN PIXIE is a robust and reliable installation-grade DMX-to-SPI pixel converter and standalone player designed to make control of LED pixels easy.
Pre-program, or run live – it’s your choice. Use its DMX inputs or stream to your DIN PIXIE via USB from a computer to control two live universes of DMX (256 RGBW, 340 RGB or 1024 White 8-bit LEDs). Alternatively, set your device to playback a standalone show of up to four universes that you’ve created and saved from Art-Net via EMU software to internal memory.
For bigger installs you can tie numerous DIN PIXIEs in with a STORM Ethernet-to-DMX node and expand out your installation to hundreds of universes.
Supporting a wide range of popular LED pixel strips and dots, the DIN PIXIE performs seamlessly as an integral part of almost any lighting system.
