For the world’s first time, during the Amsterdam Dance Event in Club AIR, the new DiGi LED strips are presented. Both technically and creatively a masterpiece! The design of the lighting causes a true 3D experience and makes a visit to AIR more than worth it.

The new strip is unique in its kind because it uses a new small SMD LED as a replacement of the popular 5050 RGB SMD LED. The LED is smaller so the LEDs can be placed closer to each other and the light output is also higher. InventDesign had the flexible LED strip released on a black PCB so it can be hidden in the backdrop of clubs and theaters and therefore only the effect of the LED lights is visible. The strip runs on 24V so the maximum strip length is longer than when using a 12V strip. For this project, InventDesign used 145cm aluminum profiles that are finished in black too.

The DiGi LED strip is characterized by the individual (per segment) control. In this case, each segment of 8.5 cm has six RGB LED’s, these segments are individually controllable. DiGidot developed a special DMX LED controller that can controle nearly 15 meters of DiGi LED. This controller has a grayscale of 256 so colors fade into one another very smoothly.
