Best led single pixel hardware for madmapper

i have to build a structure with 8 towers, and each tower has 36 meters of strip led single pixel RGB and the totals are 2160 led RGB for each tower and 17,280 led RGB in total. So a lot of pixel. At the moment the best solution that i found is the PixLite 16 Long Range MkII Controller : with 8 PixLite Long Range Receiver.
It arrive to 16,320 RGB pixels, and in case i'll try to adapt the project to this number.
Do you think that can I control all these single led information with madmapper? Is it too much for MM? And do you think that a minimad is able to control all these information?

Otherwise do you have other suggestions for other hardware? I readed all the topic about led in the forum and i didnt find any other good solution for my project.
I was thinking also to have an different driver board for each tower but it will be more expansive, but at this moment i'm open to any other possibility.
And i have also the problem that i need this hardware in 1-2 weeks maximum.
I hope someone can help me.

i Bought this hardware and i tested it with 9 meter of strip led, and it is working very well. In 2-3 weeks i will test the board with the maximum of leds and i will write here the resoult.

i tested the board at 100% of capacity (16320 led RGB) with strip led RGB SK9822, and it worked perfectly with 1.2 / 1.4 clock parameter. at 2.9 clock the light was more fluid but i had problem with less then 100% of luminosity.
