Powerful Pixel Mapping
Fine tune down to the pixel with Designer Mapping. Use a group of lighting fixtures as an array of pixels to display media clips or stunning built-in 2D effects. Maps can be quickly auto-generated from fixture layouts, or manually modify pixel positions for ultimate control over the result.
Fine tune down to the pixel
Designer Mapping makes it easy to map video and 2D effects across a pixel matrix spanning any group of lighting fixtures.
Create real-world layout
Create a layout of your installation as the fixtures appear in the real world using a grid or background image for guidance. Handy tools help to create shapes such as circles and grids or automatically align/distribute fixtures.
Generate a pixel matrix
Use the Designer software to automatically generate a pixel matrix from any selection of fixtures, even mixing fixtures of distinct types in the same matrix. The software will intelligently determine the resolution of the matrix and position of every fixture.
Manually tweak the mapping
Designer provides the tools to manually tweak the pixel matrix, including the ability to individually select the pixel for each fixture, if desired. This gives you full control over which pixel each fixture maps to.
Choose your content
Matrices can be used to play videos and static images, or simply as an exciting way to generate dynamic and fluid two-dimensional colour effects across large numbers of LEDs. Each fixture can exist in multiple matrices, greatly expanding the creative possibilities.
Create stunning, seamless displays of light
Don’t be limited by size or structure.
Give movement to an art installation, manipulate colour on every level – no matter how many levels there are.
Unwrap any structure, any shape, and create your looks with built-in effects or imported video.
Generate impressive, seamlessly looping effects on every array of pixels, with the flexible mapping allowing for different screens, aspect ratios, and resolutions of fixtures.
One tool of many
With Designer, you’re not limited to one way of working. Each fixture can be simultaneously programmed both as part of a pixel matrix and as a regular lighting fixture using our scenes and timelines. Read more about our intelligent programming.
