Powered by the mighty PixLite® Mk3 processor

PixLite® Mk3 is Advatek's state-of-the-art processor. It uses sophisticated third generation firmware to enable totally unforgettable lighting displays.

Advatek PixLite® Mk3 control board
01

Gamma correction for pixels of all resolutions. Dimming curves can be adjusted to better match the human eye, no longer limited to pixels above 8-bits. Pixels will appear more vivid and accurate.

02

Extremely fast refresh rates. The Mk3 processor can handle hundreds of frames per second, allowing for fast and dynamic effects displayed with higher reliability.

03

Dithering. Artificially generate higher resolution pixel control, to make low-resolution pixels appear much higher.

04

Dynamic adjustment. Thanks to Auto-Sync, the outgoing frame rate will dynamically adjust to the incoming frame, even without an external synchronization source. This reduces the chance of out-of-sync pixel systems and tearing.
