Exterior PixLine 20

Larger Images

The Exterior PixLine 20 is a  linear LED video fixture for media facades and creative installations. The Exterior PixLine 20 can be combined with a wide variety of lenses and diffusers for the right look for every application. The Exterior PixLine 20 is driven by the Martin P3 System Controller family for easy setup and video display, and it is also backwards compatible with DMX for smaller setups. The fixtures can be fully customized in terms of length and color to match every installation requirement, while the power source is hidden.

How processing works for LED video

  • Wide range of pixel pitch, lens and diffuser options for flexibility of look
  •  Fully outdoor-rated and customizable in terms of length and color
  •  Easy setup and cabling for clean installation
  • Family of ultimate creative possibilities

    The Exterior PixLine family consists of linear LED Video sticks with 10, 20 and 40 mm pixel pitch for easy design of any application. The Exterior PixLine comes in custom length (from 300 mm to 2000 mm) and custom color.

  • Variety of diffusers for different looks

    All Exterior PixLines are available with 4 different diffusers allowing for selecting the right look for the right application: Flat clear front, Flat diffused front, Square diffused front and Round diffused front.

  • Dedicated graze version 

    A dedicated graze version has been designed to achieve an effective graze light and wall wash distribution. The lens provides a beam angle of 25° X 85° with the light tilted 5° towards the wall.

  • Easy infrastructure

    The Exterior PixLine products can be controlled via the Martin P3 protocol for easy mapping and integration with other Martin LED Video products onto the same control system.
    For small or pure lighting applications, the Exterior PixLine also accepts RDM/DMX, enabling even more versatile use.

  • Easy daisy-chaining

    All Exterior PixLines products feature a single connector for data and power. This enables easy daisy-chaining in long runs without requiring power or data re-feeds halfway, greatly simplifying system setup.

  • Easy mounting

    The Exterior PixLine can easily be installed in the optional mounting profile, which also conceals the cables. The Exterior PixLine also includes an M6 bolt track for direct mounting on a surface or structure.
