“DiGidot is a powerful, innovative solution for pixel control and is one of the most advanced LED pixel tape drivers on the market today. We are proud to now offer it in our product line up,” stated Elation Professional Sales Director Eric Loader in a statement. “It offers the latest technology for integration
into a variety of LED pixel tape projects and runs all pixel tapes on the market, including the Elation Flex Pixel range.”The DiGidot C4 is an in-house development of DiGidot, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It works as a pixel controller, ArtNet node, show recorder and trigger device and can work standalone for smaller setups or collaborate in larger networks with third-party devices. One device can drive more than 6000 single LEDs.
Whereas users previously needed one or more ArtNet to DMX nodes in combination with a large number of DMX to SPI decoders to control a large number of LED pixel lights, the DiGidot C4 driver allows for easier configuration by daisy chaining through a built-in Ethernet switch.
This means fewer devices, less cabling and less installation time.
A built-in show recorder records up to 8 DMX universes, making the DiGidot C4 perfectly suited for applications in theme parks, museums, retail shops and architectural. It works with a variety of protocols and an intuitive app and web-based user interface make for convenient operation.
