Technical specification


Formats:
  • Image: JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF
  • Video: MP4, AVI, FLV, MOV, MPEG


File Weight:

  • Image: There is no limitation to file weight.
  • Video: 100 MB  (FPS 10 / Speed: Avoid high speed movement)

 
Resolution (Pixel Density):
The resolution of the image/video should always be the number of lamps of your installation, for example in a case with 1000 lamps in width and 250 in length, the image/video should be 1000x250 pixels. This is to ensure the highest fidelity between what you see on the screen and what you’ll see on your installation.

Ratio:
When designing custom effects, it is highly advised to work on the layout of the installation, with a ratio
of b:h (base : height) for best results. This is to avoid stretching and/or cropping of your content.
