Overview

 

The VDO Sceptron 40 is a linear outdoor-rated LED video fixture for the rental market with 40 mm pixel pitch and an extensive range of optical accessories for a wide variety of looks. The VDO Sceptron 40 is driven by the Martin P3 System Controller family for easy configuration, mapping and setup, and is also backwards compatible with DMX for smaller setups. The integrated power and data cabling allows for long daisy-chains with many fixtures per cable-run, while the power supply can be located backstage (up to 50 m away) for a clean setup avoiding messy cabling and several driver boxes.
