For non-modified use with RGBPlus sequences, the controller in this package must be connected to Network Aux C/Network 4. Each network in your show requires a USB485-HS Adapter (computer show) or an available port of a Showtime Director.
Our "CPC" packages include the "Coro, Pixels, and Controller" you need to easily add smart pixel props into to your display. These packages can be connected to an existing network of Gen3 Light-O-Rama Controllers, or used on a separate network within the same show. A Cat5 cable is required to connect this controller to existing controllers in a multi-controller network, or a computer/showtime director if it is the only Unit in the show.
S5.6.8 or higher is recommended for easiest use; a Pro license level is required to use Pixel Motion Effects.

Our CPC packages can be used in a display with custom sequencing as long as the controller's Unit IDs do not conflict with any other Unit ID assignments on the network, and network limits have not been exceeded.
If you want duplicates of the props in this package but still want to use our RGB Plus Sequences, just put multiples of this kit into your cart and make sure each Pixie controller uses the SAME Unit IDs when you set up your display. Read more about our sequences in the RGBPlus Sequence tab.
Pixels are not pre-pushed. Assembly is to be completed by the customer.
The first pixel of each strand of 100 (two 50s connected) should begin at the bottom of every odd row and continue upwards towards the top. The string should then fold and continue downward down the adjacent even numbered strand and end at the base of the tree. When viewing the tree as the audience, the first strand should be on the left of the tree and the 32nd strand should be on the right. This kit can be used to create a 180 or 360 degree Mega Tree.
