I have been working on this project since the Christmas of 2021. It is an open source 24 port Pixel Light Controller that is driven by Ethernet E1.31.
I created a 16 port DMX AC dimming controller 10 years ago, but didn't share my code and didn't get much interest in it beyond the people in my own circle of friends. This time around, I am sharing the code before the PC board has even been laid out. I am at a level of basic functionality and putting it out there in the world! If you interested in the project, get the latest info at the development site:
This is neat! Looks like a TV. What are the dimensions in pixels and in inches? Crazy how well the video looks with pixels
It is 24 x 50 pixles (1200 total) and the display is 4 feet tall and 8 feet wide.
4 by 8, you need some distance from that,
I use it in my Christmas display. It sets about 200ft from the road. I am upgrading to a 3500 pixel screen in the same 4x8 formfactor. It should really bring in some detail.
I have controllers for sale.
Also, here is what it looks like driving 3528 pixels:
