Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to add my Solution of Mounting the LEDs on a Projector Screen. Maybe it is useful for somone who is planning to build one. The Screen Size is 120" with 150LEDs.

Nice m8! :)
What type of screen do you use?
Mine is built with aluminium profiles which are 7 cm wide. Your frame is very thin and looks really cool. Is it DIY screen?

Here is my setup:

Funny! I got the Idea to build the backlight for my Projector screen after watching your first video! Thanks for the inspiration! Yes, it is a DIY Screen. Adapted the black edges to look better with the lights. It was pretty easy because its a wooden frame.

Nice work!

I like the trick of using cable ties to hold the LED pixels.. that's a nice compromise between 'holds it securely' and 'can be undone if necessary'. What's the clip/bracket you're using under the pixel?
When you void a product warranty, you give up your right to sue the manufacturer if something goes wrong and accept full responsibility for whatever happens next. And then you truly own the product.

That is awesome! I am actually looking to achieve a similar result, but I have no idea what I am doing. Can anyone provide a parts list for this large 150 LED setup?

My setup I am adding Adalight to: http://imgur.com/a/ujNyN

Thanks for any help with this!

I want to make a comparing screen like this one. Can you also give me a part list?
Which Arduino did you use? How many adapters?

Thanks
