Eight years ago we started our show with one 16 channel controller. Over the years we have continued to add new props and technology. This year our show has over 20000 individually controller pixels. Pixels are a 12mm bulb that have red, green and blue leds in them. When you add different levels of power to each led you are able to make different color. During the year we take songs and map them to our display creating an unique light display. To map the songs we use a program called Xlights and this program gives us an option to see our display before we have anything on the house. Please see demo video of one our songs this year.
"How long does your display take to setup?"
We start planning for our next year show a couple days after launching our current years show. After the first of the year we will start building and ordering new props for next years show. Also all pixels in the props have been push in by hand.
"How much power does it take to run the show"
The lights we use in our show are 12 volt led's and we run them at 30 percent power. We run our show on four 15amp outlets.
