Martin Professional announces VC-Strip family26 March 2013
Martin Professional has launched the new VC-Strip family of narrow LED video strips. VC-Strips are said to be ideal for integration into stage and set designs, as well as interiors like bars, ceilings and walls. Fully compatible with Martin’s VC-Grid LED video module, they can be used together for more creative LED video designs.
VC-Strips are fully pixel-level calibrated on brightness and colours for optimal uniformity and quality, according to Martin, and are driven by Martin’s P3 System Controller family.
The flexible video strips feature a pixel pitch of 25 mm and are available in lengths up to 400 mm. They can be cut to required length on-site.
VC-Strips are available in RGB, warm white, medium white and cool white variants. The RGB version has a calibrated brightness of 4,000 nits while the warm/medium/cool white versions have a calibrated brightness of 8,500 nits.
As VC-Strips are driven by Martin’s P3 System Controller Family, they run true video so there is no need to worry about stuttering, uneven dimming or lack of synchronization, said Martin. The VC-Strips are fitted with colour temperature control, colour target control and gamma curve control, while they perform at the same frame rate as the video source.
VC-Strips are fed with power and data via Martin’s P3 PowerPort 1500, which enables daisy-chains up to 18 meters and requires few cables. Its four outputs mean that up to 72 m of VC-Strips can be run from a single P3 PowerPort 1500. To reduce complexity even further, VC-Strips require no other external box to work.
