Combine DVi & SPI

Post by Pecotic »


I'm planning an installation where i have the following problem:

Basically i have two parts of the installation, a led wall and several stripes. The stripes seem to burst out of the led wall, so i need the same visual to be displayed correctly on both at the same time. Imagine this as a heart where veins go out from.
So when the visual is started on the wall it should continue on the stripes.
So how can i combine the DVI and the SPI? Just patch it correctly as usual or is there something i have to take care about?
And first of all, is it possible to use both?

Since i have not worked with DVI yet, what is necessary to rund the wall via MADRIX?

Hello Pecotic,

Of course it is possible to combine the DVI output and the DMX or SPI output in one setup in MADRIX. You only need to create a patch with the desired fixtures in the MADRIX "Patch Editor".
Under the following link you can learn how you can create a patch with different fixtures: ... tures.html

In some case it is necessary to use a so called "DVI Mapping" when you are working with the "Patch Editor".
How the "DVI Mapping" is working in MADRIX you can learn under the following link: ... _mode.html

The "DVI Mapping" is necessary when you want to combine DMX and DVI fixtures, when the DVI fixture is not starting at position X = 1, Y = 1, Z = 1 and also if there are gaps between different DVI fixtrues and the used DVI controller can not work with gaps.
