VDO Fatron 20

LED Video blade with 20mm pixel pitch

Your creative VDO toolbox just got bigger, more dynamic and way more flexible, making your P3 System Controller even more versatile.

VDO Fatron 20 is a 20 mm pixel pitch outdoor-rated LED video batten with an extensive range of optical accessories for a wide variety of looks that allows you to seriously play with creativity in 3D stage designs. Easy video-mapping and creative mix ‘n’ match with other Martin LED video products via the P3 System Controller. It uses the same integrated power and data cabling as VDO Sceptron and VDO Dotron, making installation a breeze. Be creative.
