LED screen tiles donated by Mistamud (due to issue with a bad batch of red LED wafers). See mailing list thread here.

LED tile

What is it

  • Frame containing 6 LED tiles

LED Frame.jpg

  • Controller/PSU "Infiled"

LED-Infiled.jpg

  • 46 individual LED tiles

What are we doing with it?

The space is likely to keep the frame and PSU, and maybe a few extra screens depending on final decision.

Building a LED wall

On this Mistamud says: You'll need a card called a Scancard. (the brains found inside each and every LED panel): http://www.led-card.com/product_info.php?cPath=24&products_id=314

The signal that goes into the Scancard on Cat5 cable needs to come from a Sender Card: http://www.led-card.com/product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=15. The signal that goes into a Sender card is good ol' DVI from your laptop.
