There isn't no questions the LOR software will support the CCB product. I just think the larger share of people will want smaller M6 style RGB bulbs.

I was hoping for a smaller bulb also.


I like the idea of the c9 but it would be nice if they offered smaller also.

We can get the bulbs in large and small formats. I think we will do some additional research to see if it makes sense to have both sizes. The price would be about the same because the electronics in the bulbs would be the same.

Me too. I like small high brightness lights!

Thanks Dan for finally telling us ball park prices, this makes it much easer to plan now.

How far can the two flood lights heads be from each other?

So if I do the math right 1 set of 50 CCB's = 33 feet of light

To people saying other things I think Dan prices and ideas are pretty great. Also remember that by going with LOR you will have a well tested product that will be backed by there company. RGB lights are expensive no matter how you buy them.

I definitely like the idea of the larger bulbs. Allot of people have been talking about finding diffusers for other RGB node products, LOR CCB will have the diffusers already. Someone by me used the GE color changing lights by me this year and the bigger sized looked great on their house.

Looks to me like next year I will be making a mega tree out of CCB :D

If the price can stay the same I could see my self buying 8 sets of 100.

I would also recommend people seriously think about adding RGB floods to their display. They really help to add a punch to your display.

Dan said that each flood gave out the light of about 10 rainbow floods. So two floods for 300$ = 20 rainbow floods, 20 rainbow floods will coast you more then 300$. Greg does make and awesome product, and I can recommend him highly but my display suffers quite a bit from Light pollution issues, so I would definitely like to add some extra powerful floods to the parts of the display that get hit with light pollution issues the wort.

If the prices stay the same I will probably buy 2 of the 2 light floods :)

Dan you have made me very excited about 2011, I know things might change but at least we know about what to expect :)

Now I will admit that I do stile plan to work with a few other RGB devices in the next year, honestly I am not even sure of these devices will make the display, just want to play with a few ideas I have floating around my head that LOR does not have comparable products for. But once again LOR proves that it will be very hard to find a product on the same level of something they make.

How do these compare to the CCR'S that are out now if they are better then I might go the CCB route instead of the CCR route

I really think it depends on what you want to achieve and how much you want to spend.

If you want to do an Arch a CCR will probably be better.

If you want to put lights on a tree a CCB will probably be better.

Also a CCR will be 250$ normally and has 50 RGB pixels if all goes well the CCB will be 100 RGB pixels for 200$ That a cheaper price and double the nodes. Which will probably make RGB Lighting allot more reasonable.

I really want to see the brightness of CCBs. are they made of three tricolored LEDs like the CCR?

Sheesh Dan...

Now I don't know what to do ...AGAIN!!! LOL :D

If you MIGHT be coming out with smaller bulbs, I would rather wait for those!!!

Though I could see having both in my display...I don't see them being about the same price as an issue.

Would the smaller ones have a more traditional spacing? Like 4"?

Guess I will have to order a couple and see how they would work out...

Oh..and another question..you said two 50 ct strings can be hooked to a controller...is this end to end or do both strings plug into the controller? Would make a big difference in designing things.

The CCB bulb will be molded to look like a C9 Christmas Light (molds are currently being produced and we will provide pictures as soon as possible)...

The CCB comes in strings of 50 bulbs with 8" spacing. The CCB controller will accept 1 or 2 strings of CCB bulbs. The CCB will be sold in 50 and 100 bulb sets. The set includes the controller with internal power supply and one or two sets of bulbs.


Thanks Dan ! This is so exciting to hear. Questions about all this.

Is the ccb 100 like a second ccr? I am hoping for 100 individually addressable contiguous bulbs. I recall the ccr manual says the second set of 50 results in sets of 2 pixels and still only 50 addressable pixels.

Are the molded bulb covers slip on and removable? I dont want C9 and it would discourage me from a purchase. I was hoping to be able to rig my own dome or maybe choose some options. My concept was a light saber as done by TheBaron. Basically each bulb had a 6 foot home made acrylic rod reflector. Not asking LOR to offer these. Just hoping that the dome is not single piece molded in so other options can be tried.

I know you don't have many details... but could they come in 4" spacing?

And, what chip are you using to control them?

Thanks a million!

Is this correct? The CCR uses tri-color LEDs? I thought it used three (red, green and a blue) LEDs.

To connect 2 CCB strings (the 100 bulb set), will both strings be directly connected to the controller, or will we be able to plug them in end to end?

Wow! This has me reconsidering my design for next year as well.
I think I would rather have 4" spacing and somthing in a C6.
At those prices, 16 strings is a real possibility.
I might have some controllers for sale to help defray the costs. On second thought... more is better :D

I need to do some serious ROI calculations...

Dan,

On the CCR 3 lights = 1 Pixel, how is it with the CCB's??? is each bulb a pixel??

Looks like I might be ordering 12 (maybe 16) - 100 count strings (would prefer smaller than the C9 size). 3 new mega trees!!!

If we do decide to go with both form factors (big and small) the will be made available at the same time so you will not need to wait on one or the other. We will make the the decision on the small bulbs in the next 2 - 3 weeks.

With the 100 bulb package the controller will be in the middle. All 100 bulbs will be individually addressable.

The CCR and the CRB both have their places. the same way that rope light and mini lights were used for different effects.

I do not recall the exact length of the cords on the floods but I think they can be spaced about 30' apart.

Thanks Dan for the quick response...and "working" during your much deserved time off...

For me and apparently a lot others this is GREAT news!!!!

This is why we LOVE you and LOR!!!!

Not sure what chip they use. If we go with the smaller bulb it could have 4 inch spacing.

The CCR use tri color (RGB) LEDs. Each pixel has 3 of the RGB leds so each pixel really has 9 leds junctions... So the CCR has 150 RGB LEDs on it!

If anyone (at LOR) is counting, I'd be more interested in the small form factor too.

I will chime in with my 2 cents. I would prefer smaller bulbs also. 8 inch spacing seems a bit large. I have some 3 year old 5MM LED's on my roof and house with 6 inch spacing that I am very pleased with and would consider replacing. My mental conquest to do more and better resists changing these to an 8 inch spacing. I wonder how many react with the thought, will 8 inch spacing look as good as the 4 inch spacing I now use? I do understand the consideration between cost and linear feet of coverage, so I would request the 6 inch spacing. Also, 4 inch spacing would work better for string length around my windows.............so tighter spacing , though more expensive per foot, would work better for me. No matter what the final product is, I will be using them.

I could go for a 5" spacing... would actually work perfectly for the dimensions of what I have planned... but then Id have to buy twice as many strings.


I suggest to LOR that they have different versions of this product.

A C9 would look really good along the house, but a C6/7 would look much better in certain parts of my display.
[line]Maybe they can have a 8" of each size bulb and a 5" of each size bulb? and price accordingly?

Would that be too hard to manage Dan?
Anyone with me on having options?

I think they should go with "standards" already in place...

4" for the smaller bulbs and 6" for the C9's...

but they have never listened to me before! LOL


So on second thought..I think they SHOULD be 8" spacing for BOTH sizes!!! :)
