The VC-Feeder is a smart, multi-protocol driver box for the VC-Dot series. A compact design and IP65 rating make it perfectly suited for installation close to a string of VC-Dots. The VC-Feeder provides the string with clean, regulated power, even if the power supply is located far away. Compatibility with the P3 System Controller™ (via the P3 PowerPort 1500™) gives it high-quality image processing capabilities with extremely easy setup and configuration.

How processing works for LED video

  • Driver unit for VC-Dot products
  • Compatible with P3 and DMX
  • Easy cabling and configuration


  • High-quality, 16-bit-per-color image processing technology
  • IP65 rated for permanent outdoor or indoor use
  • P3/DMX controllable (automatic protocol detection)
  • Intuitive mapping and addressing via P3 System Controller family
  • Hybrid power + data input (single cable for power and data input)
  • Hybrid power + data thru (to daisy-chain multiple VC-Feeders)
  • Hybrid power + data output (to a string of VC-Dots)
  • Surface- and truss-mountable
