PixelMAD is a way of loading images and playing back Quicktime movies through DMX lighting fixtures. PixelMAD was used on Radiohead's world tour in 2003 to generate dynamic and organic lighting effects. Without programming any lighting cues.

PixelMAD uses software that runs on a Macintosh in a very similiar way to Catalyst from High End Systems. Screen pixels are converted to DMX values and sent to DMX led or convetional fixtures using the Artnet ethernet dmx protocol.
