    Boscoyo Strips (60) 48"

    I have 60 Boscoyo strips for mounting 12mm pixels. NEW, never used / never mounted. I was going to build a frame around each window with 1/2" conduit, then attach the strips to the conduit with white zip ties. I don't need them anymore so I would rather not store them any longer. These are great for getting a uniform spacing of your pixels / lights. They retail for $1.40 each plus shipping. I am selling them for $75, shipping included. About .04" thick Custom blended High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic UV Inhibitor added to maintain flexibility and to prevent brittle or chalky plastic Each strip is 48" long Mounting holes are at 1" centers Splice holes are provided at 4" centers (to connect strips together) Customizable with a pair of scissors, just cut to any length Please IM me for more information.

    24" Singing Trees For Sale

    A rough estimate from the UPS website says $140 from 54935 to 04350, but that is me guessing the weights. I would need to get them packed and weighed to be sure. Let me know if this still interests you

    24" Singing Trees For Sale

    I have 4 24x24 inch singing trees for sale. They are pre-wired and include everything to connect them to an LOR network. Each face requires 8 channels, controller included. This is READY-TO-USE, no assembly required! Just need to be configured to your LOR network. I bought a bunch of LOR equipment in January / March preparing to be ready for Christmas this year, but work (travel) has kept me too busy to get started on setup and sequencing. The rest of my equipment was sold off a couple of moths ago, and this is all that is left. Includes: 4 24x24 Holiday Coro tree templates with LED bulbs (green / white / blue, NOT pixels), mounted on 2x4 inch wooden frames - extra strings (bulbs) included 1 Renard Plus 32 (channel) controller 1 Enttec Active DMX Dongle v2 (sold by Holiday Coro) with USB cable 8 CAT 5e cables (connects light strings to controller) 8 CAT 5 cable connectors 1 LOR High Speed USB to RS485 Adapter I'm asking $350 for all of it. Due to their size shipping is probably not cost effective. Actual shipping costs (TBD) would be the responsibility of the buyer if requested, but these can be picked up locally in Fond du Lac WI. Please IM me for more information. Here is a video of them after I got them set up. 24" HC Trees in Action

    Lights Around Windows

    Thanks, I think that it the best option as well. I have plans to put up 8 mini trees in the yard, and I have some Candy Canes to line the walk as well. Still planning what to do in the yard to maximize the space.
  9. I was buying controllers on eBay and bought this because the price was right. Since then I started working with pixels and found I don't need as many controllers as I bought, and never was going to use the mini director or FM transmitter anyway (I had always intended to sell it). If I can get my money back out of it I will sell it. This is BRAND NEW, it has never been used in a show, it was only mounted to the wall and connected to my LOR network to verify it worked. The previous owner stated he got it as a gift (he is a party DJ) but never used it. It comes with: ShowTime Central with miniDirector and FM Transmitter (+ accessories) USB 485 Adapter and USB filtered cable, and driver disk (1) CTB16PC - ReadyToGo 30 Amp 16 channel light controller, Gen3 with hw v1.09 USB Card Reader and (blank) 8GB SD Card Manuals and instructions from LOR I do NOT have a CAT5 cable or software to go with it, I already had those and wasn't concerned that they were not included when I bought it. I'm asking $425 for everything listed above, plus $25 shipping. This is what I paid for it, so if you don't like the price I will hang onto it until it gets closer to Christmas, or resell it on eBay in a few months. The LOR website lists this for $569.95, so I think this is a fair price since if you are on this site you likely already have your own software. Payable to my PayPal account only, sorry no checks. I do have 1 more CTB16PC controller I am willing to sell if you want / need 2 of them. I'll take $195 for it. Also Gen3 w/hw v1.09 I'll pay the added shipping cost if you want the second controller. I'll discuss selling the other controller separately / later (in another listing) if it does not get sold with this package. PM me with your contact info if you are interested. The units in the picture are the exact units I am selling.

    No phone call to worry about, I don't have one of those wife things.

    Nope, as you can see, there isn't much room at all.

    Lights Around Windows

    I thought about that for a bit, but I want to put the singing trees (inside) in the windows on the left side (one on top, 3 on bottom). That would be in the way of the rear projection.

    Lights Around Windows

    Sorry, that picture wasn't the best, the lights shown will not be used. The forum won't let me upload any more pictures, so I took new ones and saved them to my website. Not sure why I always tend to take the pictures lop sided like that. This is what they look like when I try to fix them. LOL Anyway, what would look best? Option 1: Wrap each window individually. This would require 2 strings on the "pillars / columns", but would be easier to control (sequence). Would the columns between the windows look too "crowded" when all lights are on since there would only be 1 string on top and bottom, but 2 strings between the windows? Especially between the narrow windows and the door. I do like your idea for a narrow matrix between the windows on the columns (if I use Option 1). The columns are about 5 1/2 " wide between the windows, and 11 1/2" on the column with the street numbers. Something to think about. Maybe next year I can add that. Option 2: Wrap all the windows at the top and bottom as one long string, then a separate (single) string between each window. This might look cleaner, but would require a lot more detailed sequencing for things like a chase sequence around individual windows. I know one way to sequence this would be to count the nodes and set up separate tracks in the sequence to control ONLY the nodes around each window. Not sure how the "professionals" would do it. The lines of pixels above the windows are an idea I had, I haven't decided what to do with that space.

    I'm actually incorporating a bit of both of your ideas for mounting the lights. I have coro strips, and I am mounting them to 1/2" tubing. My question was more about the windows being so close together, and if the columns between the windows would look better with a single strand of lights, or 2 strands. Do I: Wrap each window individually. This would require 2 strings on the "pillars", but would be easier to control (sequence). Would the pillars between the windows look too "crowded" when all lights are on since there would only be 1 string on top and bottom? Or: Wrap all the windows at the top and bottom as one long string, then a separate (single) string between each window. This might look cleaner, but would require a lot more detailed sequencing for things like a chase sequence around individual windows. I know one way to do this would be to count the nodes and set up separate tracks in the sequence to control ONLY the nodes around each window.

    ShowTime Central and DMX

    Hi Ed I actually have 2 of the LOR controllers earmarked for singing faces already. Buying the ones from you freed those up for other things. But as we discussed when I was at your house, I don't have a lot of room to expand so "extra" LOR controllers isn't really a plus for me. It's not that I WANT to use the mini director, but if I have it and I can make it work I would use it. If I can't use it I'll sell it. I may sell it as a used ShowTime Central Starter kit and include one of the controllers. As long as I get my money back out of it (which was a big savings off of a new kit) I'll be happy. It's funny you mention getting a cheap laptop, I just picked up a used Alienware 17x on eBay for $400. The 12 year old Dell D630 I was using would sometimes lock up (the software) after working for too long on a sequence. I even found my sequences would stop running after 8 or 10 minutes. It was meant to be used as a business PC (text editor). The Alienware is MUCH more computer than I need (designed for high end gaming & graphics) but I couldn't pass it up for the price.
