The PlanetChristmas Product Page

Chuck Smith, considered by many to be the father of computerized Christmas displays, started PlanetChristmas over 10 years ago as a place for people to learn how to light up the world. The members of PlanetChristmas became pioneers in animated displays, building their own home brew systems and starting a trend that has now brought joy to millions all over the world. The CTB16PC was designed with those pioneers in mind. People on a budget or who just like to build things can use the CTB16PC to create displays that will simply astound people.
