Should I go with RGB pixels? Depends on where you live...

Recommended Posts

I constantly get the question about switching to smart pixels.  They're great eye candy BUT expensive, complicated and can be power hogs.

I got to watching a lot of the customer-submitted videos on the Light-O-Rama website.  What struck me with the RGB pixel displays was how cars would speed past... totally ignoring what was built to stop them in their tracks.


Now when I talk to others about switching to smart pixels I ask them where they live.  If there's not a place for people to park and watch I recommend sticking with traditional lighting where you're lucky to get one second of eyeball time.

Is your show unique?  That question drives my decisions as well as who's going to see it and why do I even decorate. This is my tenth year and I have slowly added rgb bulbs but have not removed any traditional lights.  The S5 software gives more motion effect options that work well to blend my show.  I don't see going full rgb or adding a $2,000.00 tree that plays cartoons.  I'd rather invest in a projection (inspired by Disney), but I would settle for a 50 watt rgb flood to color a wall if LOR would ship them.
