This pixel protocol was designed by Genesis-Systech in China. While the features are very similar to GS8208, GS8206 also allows for a constant voltage pixel system, via a parallel LED connection. This results in a more flexible lighting system, allowing up to 24V to be used. The control circuit comes in a SOP8 package, allowing for more flexibility with LED choice.
Built-in Gamma Correction
|Enhanced to 12 Bits (+4 Bits)
Output Pixel Voltage

|Up to 267fps
Data Transfer Rate
Redundant Data Line
Considerations for Use
- Very high PWM rate allows for filming these pixels with cameras up to 267fps
- Up to 24V, allowing for very long cable lengths
- Redundant data line reduces chance of entire strip failure
- Additional 4 bits of built-in gamma correction enhances LED output to 12 bits, making colors more accurate and dimming curves more smooth
- Data-only restricts refresh rates to be limited by the speed of the protocol, which can be slow
On start-up, all GS8206 pixel lights will momentarily flash, and then enter a built-in test mode for a short period of time. When this self-test has finished, the pixels will proceed to respond to their incoming data.
Are you looking for GS8206 pixel drivers that work with Art-Net or sACN?
