Demo: Using Pixblasters to create an info kiosk display

As soon as we started developing the Pixblasters idea, we decided that the video content management had to be easy and applicable in different display applications. While conventional LED module based video digital displays nowadays accept practically any graphics and video input data format, non-traditional LED strips-based displays lack such flexibility - due to non-standard architectures and different LED driving requirements. This update includes a video! Read the full update.
