Cool White vs. Warm White

Top  Previous  Next

Most Cosmic Color Ribbons have "cool white" LEDs, which means they are bluish white when Red, Green, and Blue are completely on.  But some batches of Cosmic Color Ribbons have "warm white" LDS, which means they are a true white when Red, Green, and Blue are completely on.  Although they are a true white, when held next to a cool white pixel that is also completely on, they will look yellowish.

 

The same is true for DMX ribbons and strings: Some of them are "cool white" and some are "warm white".  Choose the setting that matches your particular lights, and the colors on the lights will more nearly match the colors that you saw on the computer screen when you made the sequence.
