VC-Grid 60

Creative LED Video tile with 60mm pixel pitch

The VC-Grid 60 is an ultra-light-weight LED video module with a 60 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
