Displaying one sequence on two identical pixel megatrees
Last Updated: 11/18/2017
For some installations where two 180 degree trees are used with two separate pixel controllers, you may wish to "duplicate" the output so that each tree shows the same sequence for one half of the tree on the second half of the tree. This article covers how to accomplish this.

* Configure both controllers with unique IP address. For example, if we use the default IP address of 192.168.0.50 of the AlphaPix on the first controller, we will set the second controller to the IP address of 192.168.0.51
* Configure both controllers to have the same universe and pixel counts. For a 16 output tree this looks like:


* Configure your sequencing application to output sequence data to the uni-cast IP address of 192.168.0.255 - while this is not the actual IP address of the controllers, it is the broadcast address and all the controllers in the 192.168.0.xxx subnet will respond as if the E1.31 data was being directly sent to the controller.
* Configure your sequence to output to universes 1 to 16 (one string of lights per output)

That's it! Now both controllers (or more if they are all in the same subnet and have the same configured universe) will respond and play sequencing data as if they were a single controller.
