VC-Grid

Creative LED Video tile with 25mm pixel pitch

Larger Images

The VC-Grid is a small, 200 x 200 mm LED video module with a 25 mm pixel pitch. Useful in creating customized LED video solutions with maximum artistic flexibility and a minimum of effort, the VC-Grid’s compact size makes it extremely suitable for integration into stage designs, set elements, creative ceilings, lobbies and much more. Used with or without a front diffuser, multiple VC-Grids can be combined in a countless variety of ways for ultimate design freedom. A combined power/data cable allows VC-Grids to be daisy-chained for easy setup and less cabling. 

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