VIP Driver

VIP Driver is at the heart of the VIP video display system, acting as the interface between any DVI or HDMI video source and all MVP or PVP and C6 video panels via the CHAUVET LED Studio software (provided free). Rackmountable, it has two signal outputs, each driving up to 655,360 LEDs, which connect via Neutrik etherCON to any configuration of the VIP panels. It allows media playback, configuration, addressing and remote power control of the panels. It is scalable to link up to 4 units in a single system (5,242,880 LEDs total capacity).
