Parola A to Z – Multi Zone Displays

Parola_Controlled_ZoneA very powerful feature of the Parola library is the ability to separate a display into a number of zones. This allows the implementation of sophisticated animations schemes and is a key part of being able to create double height displays.

This post explains what they are, how they are set up, and how to manage them.

Parola A to Z – Adapting for Different Hardware

Parola_ModuleAn ongoing question on many Arduino forums is the adaptation of software to the different types of matrix modules. Usually the poster has tried some LED matrix software and the display is reversed or upside down, or animations are disjointed across the module boundaries.

There are clear reasons this happens, and the Parola library has software configuration parameters that allow you to adapt how the software operates to suit your hardware module.
