Overview

VC-Dot 4 is a lightweight string of individually controllable, bright Dots useful in creating customized LED video solutions with maximum artistic flexibility and a minimum of effort. Fully customizable and controllable via the award-winning P3 System Controller™ family and/or DMX512, it is a perfect solution for integrating LED video technology into façades, stage designs, ceilings or any other structure, indoors or out.

Mapping video onto VC-Dots goes quickly and intuitively via the P3 System Controller. No need for complex setups and time-consuming addressing. VC-Dot 4 contains four LEDs and is available in an RGB color mixing version.
