i am intrigued, I said something about this idea before but hadn't heard of someone trying it, you'll need a microcontroller and some serious charlieplexing skills... next You'd need to make a program for the controller to interface the board and make the image from the composite video feed, which would be very hard, you might be better off using a digital feed.

Umm you'd be better off asking some of the microcontroller guys about that, I think tech-king knows his stuff, guyfrom7up should aswell... You'd need a program in the controller that takes each signal for a pixel and uses that to run the correct led in the correct colour, it really isn't basic stuff, you may have some luck if you used an RGB video output, that way you'd have a little less complications...
