A recent project allowed us to push the limits on all things LEDs. So, we’re putting the spotlight on RGB modules and sharing the game-changing advantages that RGBW modules could bring to your next signage project. We work closely with Principal Sloan LEDs in our signage and reference their information where needed here.

DMX, or Digital Multiplex, is the backbone of modern intelligent lighting fixtures. It’s the digital communication protocol that allows us to remotely manage and control the signage displays. In simpler terms, it’s the technology that transforms a static sign into a dynamic spectacle.
In the realm of LED signage, a show is the carefully orchestrated assembly of colors and effects organized within a timeline. Picture a single color display in solid green — it’s a show. It is a sequence of red, white, and blue shifting across a specific arrangement of letters — that’s another show. The possibilities are endless.
With this technology you’re able to have varied controls of the LEDs. There is uniform control, segmented by element, or segmented by letter, the choice is yours.
Here’s the difference:
Segmented Letter Control: This involves managing a set of elements with individual control for each element. Imagine having 10 channel letters, two pylon signs, and a building border product. With segmented letter control, each letter, pylon sign, and border section can have its own distinct color scheme. This opens the door to captivating displays, where letters transition through colors while pylon signs flash in a synchronized dance of red, white, and blue.
Uniform Control: On the other hand, uniform control treats a set of elements as a cohesive unit. If you have 10 channel letters, two pylon signs, and a building border tube product, uniform control ensures a consistent color for the entire collection. It’s the key to maintaining a harmonious visual experience across your signage.
Using a DMX Infinity system, you can expand in the future. New fixtures or elements can seamlessly join the party, and the program can be updated to integrate them into the existing shows. So, in a nutshell, there is a lot of flexibility.
The world of LED signage is continually evolving, and RGBW modules bring a new dimension to the game. With the power of DMX, a variety of controls, and the ability to expand post-installation, you can help ensure your client’s signage can captivate audiences like never before.
