This package includes a fully assembled singing face with a controller – no customer assembly is required. All of the pixels are already inserted into the plastic and the singing pumpkin will be delivered ready to be mounted to your choice of frame or support when it arrives. Each character uses 200 smart pixels based on two 100 pixel strings. Pixel spacing is 1-2″ depending on location.
Each singing face character is controlled by an outdoor rated, weatherproof Pixie2 controller with built-in power supply. Just connect the Pixie2 to your existing standard Light-O-Rama data network with a Cat5, tweak your musical sequences to add in these talking/singing characters (or buy our pre-made sequences) and you’re good to go.
These characters can be controlled using a standard PC set up (with a USB485 adapter) or with any of our Showtime Directors. If you are using these Singing Faces with any sequences purchased from our sequence store, they should be connected to your “Regular” computer network or “Net 1” Showtime Director network.
If you already own a Singing Tree and would like to purchase this Pumpkin without the Pixie2 controller, please contact our helpdesk for assistance with a custom order. Firmware and Controller changes are required.
Note:Software is not included.We recommend that you purchase the Generic Starter Package to receive the software at a discount if you don't already have a license. The Advanced Version of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite is required to use Standalone singing face sequences from our store. The Pro Version of the Light-O-Rama Software Suite is required to use RGBPlus sequences (which include effects for singing faces).
Four different singing pumpkin characters are available for you to use altogether as a set or mix and match as you see fit. (Jack, Gourdy, Max and Munchkin).
Each singing face is on a sheet of outdoor rated, UV stabilized, black plastic that is 42 inches tall by 39 inches wide. A singing character has fourteen or fifteen circuits of RGB control: body outline, stem, two eye movements, ten mouth movements, and nose/eyebrows depending on the pumpkin.
stem on top
mouth E (half open)
mouth A or I (full open)
mouth O or U
mouth M, B or P
mouth F or V
mouth W or Q
nose/eyebrows (different per pumpkin)
RGB pixels are used in our singing faces so a section can be any color, making it useful when expressing moods during a song. The lips might change colors or the eyes could flash from orange to purple when appropriate.
When sent with a singing face, our Pixie2 controllers are configured to make each of the above sections act like dumb RGB pixels. This way, adding a singing face to your network only takes up “14 dumb pixels” instead of the full “200 smart pixels” actually used to create this face. This makes sequencing easier for you and saves you network space at the same time. You do not need to do anything special to your controller for this to happen – it has already been done for you at our warehouse. Do NOT reset your controller without instruction from the Light-O-Rama Help Desk.
