James Feltz and Adam Hoskins from Radiant Church in Ann Arbor, MI brings us this homemade LED wall.
From James and Adam: Has your Pastor ever said “I wish we had a LED wall.” Well ours did and after some DIY researching and a lot of prep work… we got one.
This stage design was created using LED pixels and Pixelpusher controllers and ProPresenter to push video to a 16 foot wide 10 foot high LED wall. The stage design was created to add a dynamic element of atmosphere to worship.
The structure is made of custom CNC’d MDF panels that were mounted together with aluminum angle and lumber. The CNC’d MDF panels have holes spaced at 2 inches in each direction for a large 96×60 pixel display.
The LED pixels are controlled with a custom applet using processing (https://processing.org/). This allows for ProPresenter running on a Mac to have the output syphoned into this applet which then sends the color commands to the pixelpusher controllers.
This was a large project but well worth the time and effort that went into it. The best part is that you can create it in any size or shape you want.
5760 – WS2801 LED pixels (116 – 50 pc strings)
2 – Hero Robotics Pixelpusher controllers
6 – 5 volt 70 amp power supplies
6 – CNC’d MDF panels (8 ft x 3.5 ft)
