Creative LED Video strip with 25mm pixel pitch

Larger Images

The VC-Strip family of narrow LED video strips is ideal for integration of video into stage and set designs, interiors, custom set elements and more. VC-Strips are fully pixel-level calibrated on brightness and colors for optimal uniformity and quality and are driven by Martin’s award-winning P3 System Controller family for smooth playback that outperforms any DMX-based system. VC-Strips are available in various lengths and can even be cut to required length on-site.

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