Novastar MX30 LED Display Controller

Overview

The Novastar MX30 LED Display Controller is an advanced control solution from the COEX series by Xi’an NovaStar Tech Co., Ltd. This controller is designed to deliver seamless performance and enhanced control capabilities for LED display systems. With its versatile inputs, multiple outputs, and innovative features, the MX30 offers a comprehensive solution for optimizing image quality, scalability, and system management.

Features

Multiple Types of Inputs

The MX30 sets itself apart by providing a wide range of input options to ensure compatibility with various video sources. With 1x HDMI 2.0 input (with loop through), 1x HDMI 1.4 (with loop through), 1x DP 1.1, and 2x 3G-SDI (with loop through), users can effortlessly integrate different devices, simplifying the setup process and maximizing convenience.

Versatile Outputs

With its flexible output capabilities, the MX30 empowers users to connect and drive large-scale LED displays with ease. It features 10x Gigabit Ethernet ports, enabling seamless transmission of high-resolution content up to 6.5 million pixels. Additionally, the controller offers 2x 10G optical ports and 1x SPDIF digital audio port, ensuring superior audiovisual performance.

Comprehensive Control Options

The MX30 offers comprehensive control options to meet the diverse needs of users. Equipped with 1x Genlock signal input (with loop through), 2x Ethernet control ports, and 1x Auxiliary port, this controller ensures seamless synchronization, efficient device management, and effortless configuration.

Advanced Image Processing

With its advanced image scaling capabilities, the MX30 guarantees optimal display performance. Supporting four scaling modes – custom, pixel to pixel, snap to canvas, and fill the screen – it delivers superior image quality and adaptability, ensuring content is showcased with precision and clarity.

Precise Color Calibration

The MX30 takes color accuracy to new heights with its 14-channel color correction feature. Users can achieve precise adjustments to the hue, saturation, and brightness of black, white, and the 12 derived standard colors. This level of control guarantees consistent and vibrant color reproduction, enhancing the overall visual experience.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Support

Designed to meet industry standards, the MX30 provides comprehensive HDR support, including HDR10 and compliance with SMPTE ST 2084 and SMPTE ST 2086. This ensures enhanced contrast, a wider color gamut, and an immersive visual experience. Additionally, it supports HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) for delivering HDR content efficiently.

Low Latency and Frame Rate Adaptation

The MX30 boasts low latency performance, delivering real-time responsiveness and smooth playback. With zero-frame latency (less than 1 ms), it maintains excellent load capacity without sacrificing performance. The controller also supports frame rate adaptation, accommodating various video input frame rates, including decimal frame rates, and offering fine-tuning capabilities.

Display System Monitoring

With comprehensive monitoring capabilities, the MX30 allows users to actively monitor the device status and screen performance. Instant fault and alarm information ensures proactive troubleshooting, optimizing system reliability, and reducing downtime.

Two Working Modes

The MX30 offers two versatile working modes: All-In-One Controller and Send-Only Controller. In the All-In-One Controller mode, users have access to advanced layer and scaling functions, providing maximum flexibility for customization. Seamless integration with the VMP software simplifies operations and facilitates intelligent device management.

Easy Device Control and Management

Controlling and managing the MX30 is effortless with the VMP software. It enables streamlined configuration and operation processes, empowering users to easily navigate and manage the MX30 LED Display Controller. The VMP software provides a user-friendly interface that facilitates intuitive device control, configuration, and system monitoring. With its seamless integration and comprehensive features, managing the MX30 becomes a hassle-free and efficient process.

Cascading Control via Ethernet

The MX30 supports cascading control via Ethernet, utilizing the TCP/IP protocol and star topology. This eliminates the need for additional switches or routers, as the MX30’s built-in network switching function enables easy deployment of multiple devices on the same LAN. This cascading capability simplifies the setup process, reduces complexity, and enhances overall system efficiency.

Enhanced Device Connectivity

The MX30 offers extended device connectivity options with support for the SNMP and Art-Net protocols. This allows for seamless integration with other compatible devices and systems, enabling enhanced control, monitoring, and management capabilities. With these connectivity features, users can easily incorporate the MX30 into existing setups, leveraging its full potential within their LED display systems.

Function Limitations

While the MX30 provides exceptional functionality, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. The Frame Rate Adaptive function is optimized when used with the A10s Pro receiving card and supported driver ICs, such as MBI5264, MBI5253B, ICND2055, ICND2065, ICND2059, and ICND2069. Furthermore, the Full Grayscale Calibration function is available when working with the A10s Pro receiving card, ensuring uniformity and improved image quality. It’s essential to refer to the Ethernet Port Load Capacity section for information on the impact of using HDR, which can reduce the MX30’s load capacity by less than half when used with the A10s Pro receiving card.
