VC-Grid 60

The VC-Grid 60 is an ultra-light-weight LED video module with a 60 mm pixel pitch. Useful in creating customized LED video solutions with maximum artistic flexibility and a minimum of effort, the VC-Grid’s compact size makes it extremely suitable for integration into stage designs, set elements, creative ceilings, lobbies and much more. Used with or without a front diffuser, multiple VC-Grids can be combined in a countless variety of ways for ultimate design freedom. A combined power/data cable allows VC-Grids to be daisy-chained for easy setup and less cabling.   

  • Wide range of pixel pitches to suit every application
  • Easy cabling, mapping and configuration
  • Bright and fully calibrated for optimal consistency

Features

  • 64/16 individually controllable pixels
  • 750 nits of brightness 
  • High-quality 16-bit per color image processing technology
  • Pixel-level brightness and color calibration for optimal image quality
  • P3/DMX controllable (automatic protocol detection)
  • Intuitive mapping and addressing via P3 System Controller
  • Combined power/data input (single cable for power and data input)
  • Combined power/data thru (to daisy-chain multiple VC-Grids)
  • Supported by integrated power and data processor (P3 PowerPort 1500) and simple cabling system
  • Custom designs available on request (pixel pitch and module dimensions)
