    Default MATilda is here

    finally landed is the joint project between myself and Dan Briggs which is our modular ilda buffer board to provide a matrix of ilda outputs - MATilda
    The boards are not for sale immediately but will be as soon as we can get some built, but we will take some pre-orders from now. If you are interested please contact myself sales (at) laser-wave (dot) co (dot) uk - you can place a pre order or register interest to be notified as soon as it goes on sale.
    See images below that should help you to see how the device with its two variants is multiplied. The first board has a single input, power supply from a 9-12V ac input (we will be selling a suitable adaptor once its on sale) and a single buffered output. The power and XYZ RGB signals are bussed between the boards on the connectors that are used to stack the boards together. The second board has two buffered outputs so one pair of boards will provide 3 buffered outputs. Adding additional output boards adds another two outputs all of which are zener protected for overvoltage. The maximum you can stack together is 1 power and 7 output boards giving a total of 15 buffered outputs.
    Price will be 25 per board inc postage within UK and Europe (we will ship outside Europe but further shipping charges will apply) - flat rate for power and output boards. We may offer larger numbers as sets for a discounted price but this will be announced as it is made available for sale - we expect in the next 2 weeks - we just need time to make some up. Around the same time we will also be offering some pre cut metal panels to mount the boards on in varying sizes to fit what you need.
    We hope you find it useful - please ask if you have any questions.

    Rob

    can you clarify , if i want to power 4 or 6 projectors I need one INput board and either 2 or 3 output boards , so cost is either 75 or 100 is this correct ?

    Yes Paul thats right though as I stated I expect there will be some 'package' discount which we have not decided or worked out yet.
    The other thing I failed to mention in the text above is that the ilda shutter signal is passed out to all outputs too though this isnt buffered.

    Nice build, I want to put a set of these in my QM.nets.

    Is there also the option to swap XY?

    Are the xy outputs adjustable for each individual projector? or is this simply a board to be able to plug in multiple projectors to a single DAC ?
    What are the features of this board?
    Would be nice to be able to adjust the voltage output to each individual projector to be able to equalize the size of scan.
    Also would be nice to be able to invert X / Y for each individual projector, (for ease of placement).

    The board is a 1:1 buffer thats all. It was not intended to have whistles and bells and personally I think such things are better implemented on the projector. All my projectors are size matched and have axis flips on the reapr panel. My ilda interface boards that are coming soon have this so its right there in the projector.
    We never wanted this to be a complex thing, simplicity was the key and I beleive we have acheived that
