recently we were engaged in a project of visualizing data.
we were storing and representing real-time info of bicing. a free bike-shared public transport in barcelona… you might know.
all the info is taken out from the web with a ripper(someone else helped us), stored in the server, called throught php and processed in vvvv.
anyway… we want to repesent this mesh in a 3d array led.
like the mesh in “point” mode…
we have the possiblities of having many of those smart leds:
we wanted to know if somebody has worked already with those phillips led strips using DMX, and what would be the best option for us to do a 3darray led.(as james clar)
we are absolutely new to this world of DMX.
we have used usb-midi with vvvv, but that was pretty easy…
we really wait your advice
more or less the grid would be about 20x20x5
or 400 geographical-based spots and 5 heights…
about 2000 leds…
so how possible it is?
can have 20x20 leds controlled at each universe? so, each level?
and then have 5 universes or more, to have the height?
many many thanks!
