Walt's LED Sign Page

Welcome to Walt's LED Sign page.

Originally this page was devoted to my experiments with the Pro-Lite TruColor II sign, however there has been an increasing demand for information for different signs and vendors.

Unfortunately, I can only pass along what I've learned about signs I own, information I've found, information sent to me, or information the vendor or manufacture provides.


IMPORTANT: Some vendors have made their protocols available, however, this does not mean that they offer free support! DO NOT CALL a vendor for support unless you have purchased a support plan from them: this was the major reason AMS was slow to release their protocol to the public. Your adherence to this policy will help further Open Protocols; should you need assistance, look to these pages for assistance from your peers.


  • Pro-Lite maker of the PL-2014R.

  • TallyDisplay, custom signs.

  • TOP Group - Chinese LED manufacturer based in Chengdu, China producing signs ranging from simple scrolling signs up to large tri-color and full color indoor and outdoor LED Displays. They have a software and hardware design team and make all of their own control equipment. This goes well beyond the realm of scrolling LED signs into huge television like quality.

  • DigitalBadges - This is a cool idea: wearable badges. I'm still learning more about these, perhaps enough to warrant its own section.


Be sure to mention to the distributor you saw them on Walt's LED Page. Some have agreed to pass along discounts to site vistors, and the extra exposure helps keep protocol information flowing.
