Martin launches VC-Dots26 April 2012
Martin Professional has launched the VC Series of creative LED video, which the company says are the first true video products to combine a new level of simplicity with a high level of quality.
Part of the series is formed by VC-Dots, lightweight strings of individually controllable, bright Dots useful in creating customized LED video solutions with maximum artistic flexibility and a minimum of effort.
For greater options in design and brightness, VC-Dots are available with 1, 4 or 9 LEDs per pixel (VC-Dot 1, VC-Dot 4 and VC-Dot 9) and come in an RGB colour mixing version or cool, medium, or warm white single colour versions. They are, according to Martin, the perfect solution for integrating LED video technology into façades, stage designs, ceilings or any other structure (indoors or out).
Driven by Martin’s family of P3 System Controllers, the company says that this is the first family of video dots to combine an incomparable level of simplicity with such a high level of quality. VC-Dots are claimed to eliminate complicated setups involving DMX pixelmapping, loose power supplies, tons of cabling and time-consuming addressing procedures.
VC-Dots feature pixel-level calibration and a true video-processing engine (gamma curves, colour control, synchronisation and video frame rates), and Martin says that they also blend perfectly in with video panels as they perform at the same level.
The VC-Dots are supported by the P3 PowerPort 1500, an integrated power and data processor with flexible installation options. A single P3 PowerPort 1500 is said to support all products in a simple daisy-chain of hybrid cable.
