  1. http://www.d-light.us/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=69&category_id=16&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=26 There some videos of Firefly in action here: http://www.d-light.us/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=137&Itemid=77
  2. Our controllers are compatible with Aurora, LOR, and Lightshow Pro software packages.
  3. Ooh. A live webcam? Sweet! Will you post the address once you get it setup?
  4. Correct. All new orders are shipping with the new "V3" strings which have been performing very well.
  5. No problem Philip. :-) To make it crystal clear: You do NOT need the D-Light USB485 V2 Adapter to RUN your show. You DO need it to UPDATE your Firefly (and all D-Light controller) firmware. (And we are working on a firmware update for Firefly as we speak.) now... clear as mud... ;-)
  6. correct. "Pay no attention to the men behind the booster talk"
  7. Here is a picture of a single pixel. For reference, these are approx 1" square...
  8. FYI... From the LOR spec on the USB voltage booster... "USB485B power is 10 vdc @ 170 ma" Firefly power requirement (for full brighness) is 12VDC @ 1A
  9. They have a 360 degree view (sort of). If you envision a ping pong ball that is cut in half, that is the shape of the pixel covers. The covers are translucent. If you lay the pixels out where the flat base is on the ground, you can see them from 360 degrees.
  10. In Aurora, you just add a single 16-channel "Firefly" controller and then use the RGB color picker to add effects. Just be careful here. The Firefly pixels will consume around 1A @ 12VDC when all pixels are on 100% WHITE. I'm not certain what the current rating (and voltage output) is on the LOR USB Booster is, but, I wouldn't want anyone to burn it out by over-driving it's capabilities. The power adapter that we supply with Firefly provides 2A at 12V.
  11. Basically... ---- WHAT YOU NEED ---- buy a Firefly (or many) buy a USB485 V2 Adapter (again, recommended for firmware updates) download the FREE D-Light Hardware Utility from www.d-light.us ---- SETUP ---- connect the 16-pixel Firefly string to the Firefly controller connect the power adapter to the Firefly controller plug your LOR network CAT5 cable into the Firefly controller ---- CONFIGURATION ----- ** Use the D-Light HWUtil to assign a base unit id to the controller ** The controller will then assume the base unit id PLUS 2 more consecutive unit id's (ie. Base=2, then th
  12. nope. If you want to add 2 Firefly units to your display, you need: 2 - Firefly 1 - USB485 V2 Adapter for firmware updates that's it. Firefly INCLUDES the 16-pixel string, power supply, and the Firefly controller. You do not need any additional controller to run Firefly. that's it.
  13. Another option... These are the labels that we include with our ACx16 Platinum and ACx16 Platinum Plus Edition controllers. [url="http://www.d-light.us/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=62&category_id=9&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=26"]
