Exterior Dot-HP

Martin by HARMAN Exterior Dot-HP is a bright, outdoor-rated dot designed to create media facades or perimeter lighting on large buildings and structures for long-distance viewing. This high-performance exterior LED dot for large venues allows for long fixture runs with variable pixel pitches for flexible designs. A creative tool for lighting designers, the Exterior Dot-HP is available in two versions – RGB color mixing or cool white – with a number of front designs for a variety of unique looks. It is driven by the Martin P3 System Controller family for easy setup and video display. The Exterior Dot-HP is also compatible with RDM/DMX for smaller setups.

How processing works for LED video

  • High-intensity calibrated video dot
  • Rugged IP66 housing for permanent outdoor installations
  • Easy setup and long cable runs for clean installation


  • 100 lumen per dot calibrated
  • Available in clear front, diffuser dome and directional lens variants
  • RGB or cold white LED engine
  • Flexible mounting system allows for customized solutions
  • Local integral in-built diagnostics tool
  • High-quality 16-bit per color image processing technology
  • Pixel-level brightness and color calibration for optimal image quality
  • P3/RDM/DMX controllable (automatic protocol detection)
  • Intuitive mapping and addressing via P3 System Controller
  • Combined power/data input over single cable
  • Supported by integrated power and data processor (P3 PowerPort 1500 or P3 PowerPort 1000 IP) and simple cabling system
