Supported LED protocols

The following table shows which LED protocols are currently supported by which ENTTEC pixel products.

You can reorder the list by product, and also use the search function to isolate particular protocols in order to discover which LED strips or dots will work with your current devices, or indeed the other way around.

Please note that protocol compatibility is often subject to ongoing change as we improve the abilities of our existing products, so be sure to check back here regularly as you may find that the capabilities of your favourite product have increased over time.
