Owasso Lights uses Light O Rama software and controllers to run the light show.  The syncronization that you see in the show is controlled by the Light O Rama software that is sending commands to the Light O Rama controllers.  The lights are plugged into the Light O Rama controllers and will turn on and off according to how it is programmed in the software.


There are 128 channels in the show.  A channel is a set of lights that are plugged into one outlet that can be turned on and off.  The software will tell each channel if it should be on and off and whether is should be doing special effects like twinkling or dimming.  These commands are broken down into 0.05 tenths of a second (20 frames per second).  Therefore the software is telling each of the 128 channels every 0.05 tenths of a second what to do!  That's up to 1,600 commands a second or 96,000 commands a minute!
