Pixel strings have become a staple of the lighting designers toolkit, and the DMXpix lets users unleash their creativity without using excessive numbers of DMX channels. Using the RC4 Custom Pixel Profiles, combined with keyframing, designers can create beautiful unique pixel patterns and effects for up to 1000 pixels while keeping the number of DMX channels to a manageable level. The compact, wireless DMXpix receives all 512 channels of a DMX universe and controls 2 pixel strings of up to 500 pixels each (1000 pixels total.) With the DMXpix, designers can now say goodbye to complex consoles, media servers, and endless wiring.

Worried about pixel string compatibility? The DMXpix is incredibly versatile and supports all popular pixel string protocols, including WS2801, WS2812, APA102, LPD8806, and more. Need to install the drivers for a new pixel product? It’s easy using the RC4 Wireless CodeLoader; simply download the drivers installing them on the DMXpix.
Trying to match the colors of pixel strings from different manufacturers? RC4 Wireless makes it simple, using RC4 ColorMatch™. Adjust the color balance of each string to ensure a consistent palette, even when products are from different manufacturers, have different control protocols, and even have differences due to variations in LED binning. The Pixel Color Order feature ensures all pixels in a large system will address colors with the same sequence, usually red, green then blue. By doing color correction and pixel color order in the pixel driver, rather than managing this in a console or media server, multiple different pixel strings can be controlled from the same DMX channels without undesirable color variation.
The DMXpix includes all RC4 Series 3 Harmonized Design features:
- RC4 OneTouch configuration
- RC4MagicPC configuration
- wired RDM configuration (wireless RDM is not provided)
- DMX data in and out
- High-efficiency 6V- 35VDC voltage input range
Any number of receiver-dimmers can be used in an RC4Magic Series 2 or Series 3 systems
The internal wireless DMX receiver operates identically to the DMXio in receiver mode. The RC4 DMX miniplug port can be used with a range of DMX adapters, including 3-pin and 5-pin male and female XLR connectors. The most common adapter is the RC4DMX5FA with 5-pin female XLR connector.
