ccp vs ccb

Recommended Posts

I just bought 2 ccp controllers at the sale on Friday. I already have one ccb and was wondering if there is a visual difference say from the street if I would use a ccb and a ccp on the front of the the house?

Yes.

CCBs are pixel nodes/bullet pixels and CCBs are pixels with traditional light shaped lenses on.

 

It does depend on what you are using them for though.

There is definitely a visual difference.  The CCPs are a bright pinpoint of light, similar in brightness to CCRs (or other ribbons).

The CCBs give a less bright, more diffused, and larger-looking light.

If you prefer the look of CCBs, you can purchase diffuser covers that you add can to the CCPs (or other brands of 12mm bullet pixels, including dumb RGB).

I'm sure there are multiple vendors who offer them.  I got mine from Roger Aubuchon at pixelsequencing.com

Ray Wu has a selection.

Those are the same as the covers availiable at PixelSequencing.com but less than half the price, but neither look like CCBs.

 

He has a selection of different styles. Unfortunately he doesn't have any that look a lot like CCBs but is good and fats at designing/sourcing things. Just last week he made some huge bulbs for someone to use along the edges of their driveway, and they looked really good.

Kind of makes me wonder how you mounted yours?  After I got mine, I outfitted a string of pixels with them (I used LOR pixels for the most direct comparison with CCBs) and then I went out and looked at them from the street.  No, they don't look EXACTLY like CCBs but they're close enough that unless they were used literally side-by-side I doubt anyone other than the most discerning viewers would notice the difference.

I have no dog in this race, and I care not where the OP purchases product.  But I'd have to see the actual invoice before I'll believe that Ray Wu could get them delivered to Kentucky, USA at anything even close to the delivered price from PixelSequencing.

I have never seen a CCB in real life. I doubt there are any in this country.

I have heard people say that before and looking at the website, CCBs are much bigger.

 

Here is a CCB

(Sorry for the rubbish picture. The Light-O-Rama store still uses GIFs for some reason)

 

Here is a C9 Lens from PixelSequencing

Thinking about it, how they look will greatly depend on how they are mounted, and how close together they are. A house outline may look odd if the two types are used, but two props, even quite close, will look fine.

 

 

Ray's shipping is not that bad when you ask for a quote via email. Much less than the AliExpress calculated price. The calculated price may be even more to you because I am in the UK, and Amerixa is further from China.

I have heard from several sources Pixel Sequencing's stuff mostly (Probably all) comes from Ray, which is good, as his stuff is.

Also, pixel sequencing are out of stock at the moment.

Thanks to ALL for the response.  I have ordered the covers and will see how they look.  BTW the only reason I purchased the CCP's is that LOR sale had  no CCB's and the sale price was too good to pass up.
