IPS Pixel MappingLED Screens offer many creative possibilities, and content can be displayed across a wide range of display configurations – from conventional shapes to more abstract forms. Alongside the high resolution options, IPS also stock a lower resolution screen option which is ideal for stage backdrops showing bold video content. This can be configured in a range of shapes, and with the option to map content over gaps can also be used to cover large areas at minimal cost.

Lighting fixtures with a high LED density such as LED Battens can also be pixel mapped to create video style effects using advanced features on some lighting desks, and Media Servers can help to bridge the video/lighting divide. Fixtures such as the Chauvet Epix Tour Strip are a crossover fixture than can be driven either by ArtNet, KingNet or sACN and can take an input from either a lighting desk or a media server to easily display dynamic content – and due to their physical dimensions can be arranged in ways that would not be possible with conventional LED Panels.
