Miranda Pixel solves two problems often seen with pixel tape: First, chaining together multiple devices, like an sACN node and a DMX pixel driver, introduces complexity you just don’t want. Second, one universe of DMX can only control 178 pixels, which is not nearly enough.
Miranda Pixel combines Ethernet connectivity with direct-driving of pixel tape, allowing you to drive up to four universes of pixels — 680 in total — from a single device. Additionally, it can synchronize its cues with other Mirandas, run cues internally or take external sACN universes, and even switch to internal cues if the main sACN stream goes away.
- Size: 2.5″x4.75″x1.25″
- Weight: 6 oz.
- Enclosure: Anodized black aluminum
- Input: (4) contact closure inputs, 3.5mm pluggable terminal blocks.
- (8) independent outputs for single-wire (data-only) LEDs, or (2) independent outputs for two-wire (data+clock) LEDs. 3.5mm pluggable terminal blocks.
- Drives up to (4) universes of LED pixels (680 pixels), which can be split between any of the outputs.
- Power: May be powered by the LED power supply (5VDC), its own power supply (3.5mm terminal block), or 24VDC passive PoE.
- Data: (2) switched 10/100 ethernet ports with 24VDC passive PoE, allows daisy-chaining.
Miranda Pixel includes all the typical tools you would expect out of an installation lighting controller, plus a variety of unique features:
- Functions as either an sACN Node or standalone playback unit. Fallback on loss-of-signal, or triggered switch from external input to internal cues.
- Daisy-chaining PoE ethernet reduces the network and power cabling required.
- Synchronized playback between multiple units on different networks allows for unbelievable opportunities to distribute the lighting throughout a building, theme park, or city.
- Internet-based monitoring, programming, and control allows for updates to happen from anywhere, without having a direct connection to the lighting network.
- Astrotime or scheduled triggers.
- Remote triggers via ethernet or contact closure.
- Built-in lighting effects library, permitting easy programming of systems.
- Wide ambient temperature support (-40C to +80C) permits installation in unconditioned cabinets.
