Here’s a look at some of the work it takes to build the light show.

This is the original design of the strips for the new ribbon tree.

 

We unscrewed the bulb and put it through the plastic strip and then we screwed the bulb back on. We did this 2,400 times.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the strips laid out before they were hung on the pole.

 

Here is the soldering station that was set up for soldering on the connection points for the new tree’s ribbons.

The new LED ights on the Frantronics building trims out the roofline nicely as you can see.    The LED lights are low voltage (12 volts) and are RGB (red, green & blue).  Right now it’s programmed to be blue (the Franktronics logo color), but watch out for the holiday’s, these lights can be any color.  Also the lights are devided up into 705 segements or pixels. Each pixes can be set for it’s own color or intensity.
