  1. DMX AND Motion Sensor

    If you are going pure DMX you will need to make sure your DMX dongle supports RDM. Standard DMX does not receive data so if you were going to do a motion sensor setup of any kind you would need an RDM supported device.
  2. Since the introduction of the Rainbow Matrix panelsand the uploading of the video just last week, I have recieved a lot of PMs here on the LOR forums about how to use them in conjuction with the S3 software. S3 really has opened the possibilities up as far as any lighting device control and I applaud LOR for that. I still believe they supply the best software, hands down, on the market. With that being said, Nutcracker really has taken off and with the now software based solution they offer it is even easier and more efficient to create dazzaling pixel displays quickly and easily. Just like any pixel setup, Matrix panels included, they can be extremely time consuming to sequence. So, once Nutcracker fully supports these panels life will be even easier. The purpose of this document is to show how you can implement these panels into the LOR software with LOR hardware, or other hardware, quickly and easily. E1.31 is always going to be your best bet for transmitting high numbers of RGB pixels, but the LOR USB485 adapters can be used as DMX dongles to create displays as well. People shouldn't be afraid of using high pixel counts within the LOR S3 software. It is truly the best out there (at least in my opinion) and really offers all the features you need to create stunning effects. So embrace the software to take your shows to the next level!

  3. DMX signal question

    Technically it is a 4 port splitter . The xSplit is available in the store now as well.
  4. which dongle

    Folks, I will say it again and again and again...The 32 device limit and just splitting the DMX signal is the most worst idea possible. Sure it will work but it will not work for long. We had dozens and dozens of customers come to us last year during the season for Blenders and MultiPort Blenders because they used this idea of just splittling a data signal and it didn't work. They had failing nodes, signal degredation and it really ruined their idea of what their display should look like. There are reasons this limit is set and it has been tested time and time again. Sure it will work but chances are very good it won't for long...especially when you are using cheap Chinese products that are made with low cost components. Really think about this wiring decision before you move forward with your projects and consider how much effort you may have to put into isolating problems during the season. Greg
  5. which dongle

    Right now none of our lighting devices support E1.31 but its coming...
  6. RGB Spotlight

    Also remember the Rainbow Brain and the MutliController can control the lights with a simple plug and play connection. That is why the controllers were designed. Greg
  7. ServoDog Coolness

    Those came out fantastic! Great use of the Rainbow Spotlights!! Really great setup...I like it!
  8. E1.31 and DMX

    That is a major draw back of E1.31. It will get you a significantly large amount of channels to a location very easily (in most cases with just one cable) it just will not plug directly into most devices. Even in the professional lighting world, there are not many E1.31 supported devices. That is why an E1.31 to DMX bridge is really a great investment and very easy to use. Run E1.31 to the bridge and than connect your DMX devices. By doing so you open yourself up to a whole host of products because almost everything supports DMX...including LOR products. Greg
  9. More equipment for sale

    I believe the controller is gone...just waiting on payment. I will not through the ELLs away...probably end up on eBay.
  10. More equipment for sale

    Ok...just an update on this stuff. Right now I have the two ELLs and the one contoller with the bad triac. If anyone is interested please let me know. Otherwise these will be going in the trash next Friday (2/8/13). Greg
  11. Thanks Chuck...you're the best!
  12. More equipment for sale

    CCR's are gone now too folks. I also found another PC controller. No problems with this one, was just buried in the shed. If anyone is interested please let me know. Thanks, Greg
  13. More equipment for sale

    The DC Controller is gone folks. Everything else is still available if you are interested. Greg
  14. Hi All, Still getting rid of all my LOR equipment so here are todays offerings. I still have 1 PC controller left however this has a bad triac which needs to be replaced. Just never got around to doing it. I would take $125 for this. It is a v1 controller. I have 2 CCRs that are perfectly fine...no issues. These are 2 years old. I would like $190 a piece for these. They have the controller, ribbon and power supplies. I have 1 DC controller with quick connects. It was only used for about 10 minutes once to test out some Rainbow Floods. I would take $85.00 for this. Finally I have 2 ELLs. These have been used for 3 years in my display with no issues at all. Cables are already attached. I will take $200.00 for these. If you are interested in anything, just shoot me a PM and I can figure out shipping to your address. USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground...it doesn't matter to me. Thanks for looking Greg
