ProAVNews: Chauvet Professional New Arrival—NEW F6 Strip IP

F6 Strip IP is an outdoor-ready, uniquely shaped 6.9 mm pixel pitch video panel that can be used to line set-pieces and configure designs that compliment other video wall panels in the F-series (F2, F3, F4IP, F5IP). Since it takes HDMI/DVI/SDI directly into the VIP Drive 83R video processor and features the same mapping software (Smart-LCT) as other F-series video panels, there is no need to setup a separate, dedicated video server when using F6 Strip IP with other video panels in the range. Its elongated, die-cast housing makes this product among the lightest and slimmest in its class without compromising its strength. F6 Strip IP runs on the Novastar control platform, and includes 2 diffusion filters (square soft white, square black stealth) for further versatility.  To learn more a...
