Profile Patching Examples

When using the Q25R2 in 10 pixel mode in Profile 1, each pixel is 5 DMX Channels.
The light would, therefore, require a total of 50 channels.

When using the Q25R2 in 2 pixel mode in Profile 1, each pixel is 5 DMX Channels.
The light would, therefore, require a total of 10 channels.

Example: Q25R2 - 2 Pixel Mode - Profile 1
