What is the Mate-Light
The Mate-Light is a giant pixel display. It has 640 pixels and a resolution of 40x16.

There is even an App for that (Android only).

How can I send my own pictures to the Mate-Light
Create a 1923 bytes long array containing the following:
Send this array as one single UDP datagram to:
- 1920 bytes containing the RGB colors for each pixel [R1, G1, B1, R2, G2, B2, ... , R640, G640, B640], 8 bits per color.
- 3 null bytes for obvious reasons ;-)
