    Quoted from Aurich:

    Last I heard SmartDMD coloring was struggling with running out of memory outside of ACDC and Metallica

    Assigning a Side-Channel palette to a frame consumes 0 memory

    Quoted from russdx:

    How many logic chips does it need? What does the actual image look like it? is it clean and flicker free?

    Quoted from russdx:

    smartDMD pretty much died commercially?

    This is wrong. What makes you think this ?

    Quoted from russdx:

    pretty much ANY project that colours a DMD frame has been shut down by this patent?

    SmartDmd is using a "side-channel" to send color informations (that are stored into the rom with Pinball Browser). This is not covered by any patent and noone tried to stop SmartDmd from doing this.
