FAQs of RGB Light

What is the difference between an addressable RGB strip and a regular RGB strip

What is an addressable RGB light?

Individual addressable LED strips, also known as digital LED strips, pixel strips, magic strips or dream color strips, are LED strips with a control IC that allows you to control individual LEDs or groups of LEDs. You can control a specific part of the LED strip, which is why it is called "addressable".

What is the difference between an addressable RGB strip and a regular RGB strip?

A regular LED strip allows you to use one color for the entire LED strip at a time. You can change the color of the entire LED strip at any time, but not just some of the LEDs.

Addressable LED strips allow you to set a different color for each part of the LED, thus creating a variety of colors in different areas of an LED strip.

What is the difference between CMY and RGB lighting?

CMY is the abbreviation for Cyan, Magenta and Yellow, and is a subtractive color mixing mode, where the colors produced by this method are called subtractive because it reduces the amount of reflected light needed for the visual system to recognize colors. CMY is more commonly used for color printing on paper.

RGB is the abbreviation of Red, Green and Blue, and is a summation mixing mode. The more components of each color, the brighter the color obtained, and the value range of each color is 0~255. RGB is often used in computer display and LED lighting equipment.

CMY systems use filters and mechanical devices, while RGB systems typically involve electronics and LEDs. more importantly, saturated colors tend to output fewer lumens in subtractive CMY systems because it filters out more wavelengths. Alternatively, with additive RGB systems, you can use the full output of the emitter to produce saturated colors.


RGB LED lights can create a wide range of colors at a low cost and perform well in terms of brightness while consuming little power. There are many options on the fixture market that can meet any decorative or other lighting need on any budget. Also browse ONFORU's RGB LED collections to choose the best one for you.
