VC-Strip 15

Creative LED Video strip with 15mm 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













  • 32/16 individually controllable pixels
  • 15 mm pixel pitch
  • 5000 nits of brightness
  • High-quality, 16-bit per color image processing technology
  • Pixel-level brightness and color calibration for optimal image quality
  • P3/DMX controllable (automatic protocol detection)
  • Intuitive mapping and addressing via P3 System Controller
  • Combined power/data input (single cable for power and data input)
  • Combined power/data thru (to daisy-chain up to 32 VC-Strip 15s)
  • Supported by integrated power and data processor (P3 PowerPort 1500) and simple cabling system
  • Length of VC-Strip can be customized on-site (simple cutting) to fit integration needs
  • Compatible with VC-Grid 15
