VDO Face 5 HB


The VDO Face 5 HB is a high-brightness outdoor-rated LED video panel with a pixel pitch of 5.2 mm for the rental market. This well-designed panel from Martin is driven by the same P3 System Controller as all other Martin LED Video products for a seamless total video solution. Consistent pixel-to-pixel calibration not only gives the best image quality, it also enables panels from different batches to be mixed. Ease of service and support from a brand that is here to stay give you peace of mind.
