The VC-Grid 30 is a small, 240 x 240 mm LED video module with a 30 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


  • 64 individually controllable pixels
  • 30 mm pixel pitch
  • 2750 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 12 VC-Grid 30s)
  • Supported by integrated power and data processor (P3 PowerPort 1500) and simple cabling system
