Pixel Mapping for the Stage Workshop

Learn Pixel Mapping and Programming for the Stage

Workshop Overview

LED pixel mapping has become nearly ubiquitous amongst light art projects big and small. Whether you drive your pixels with an Arduino or a Media Server mapping your pixels in software allows you to run complex coordinated patterns across your LED array. This workshop will give attendees an understanding and set of best practices of how LED's are mapped in software.
