Hi! An artist we are presenting later this month at our non-profit performance space has just requested two Strips of LED Panels (roughly 10” x 6’) to use as  Supertitle displays for their piece, which has German and French text and will need to be translated. We would usually use a Projector for this, but I just spent some time touring in Europe and they all have these beautiful LED Panels that they use for all the supertitles, and it’s a much more streamlined option IMO. However, all of the LED panels I’m seeing from online sources and local rental houses are way too high of resolution for just a simple text string, and then I stumbled upon your site! A perfect affordable option, but I’m just worried I don’t have the time to put everything together myself. Also wondering if the code you provide is able to support chaining them together as of this time?
Our overall budget for these two strips (~10"x60") of panel displays would be in the $3K range. The way I see it:
24 @ 64x32 RGB LED Matrix - 4mm pitch Product ID: 2278 = $958.80 (2 displays at 10”x60”)
All Connections, cabling, and Arduino’s / Rasperry Pi’s for 2 Chained Displays: $500?
15 Hrs Labor - Physical Construction/Connections: $750
15 Hrs Labor - Coding: $750
Coding and Physical Construction Sundries (solder, etc…): $250
Let me know if you think this is a possibility! Ideally we’d have it all done by 4/27 but I understand that’s pretty last minute.
