The VX400 supports mosaic input sources, allowing for the creation of visually striking mosaic displays with two sources accessed through OPT 1. For larger installations, up to 4 units can be cascaded for seamless image mosaics.

Providing extensive color adjustment capabilities, the VX400 enables users to fine-tune input source and LED screen colors with precise control over brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, and Gamma. Additionally, pixel-level brightness and chroma calibration, in conjunction with NovaLCT and NovaStar calibration software, ensure color consistency and image quality enhancement by effectively removing color discrepancies at the LED level.

The VX400 offers multiple operation modes, allowing users to control the device through V-Can, NovaLCT, or the device’s front panel knob and buttons. This flexibility enables seamless integration with existing workflows and simplifies infield operations and control, such as screen configuration, Ethernet port backup settings, layer management, preset management, and firmware updates.

Features

Extensive Input and Output Connectors

The VX400 features a comprehensive set of input and output connectors that facilitate seamless integration with various video sources and display devices. Its input connectors include one HDMI 1.3 (IN & LOOP), one HDMI 1.3, one DVI (IN & LOOP), one 3G-SDI (IN & LOOP), and one optical fiber port (OPT1). These connectors offer flexibility and compatibility, ensuring effortless connectivity with a wide range of video sources, such as cameras, media players, and video processors.

On the output side, the VX400 provides four Gigabit Ethernet ports, allowing for efficient data transmission and control. With these Ethernet ports, the VX400 can drive up to 2.6 million pixels, making it capable of handling large-scale LED screens with ease. Moreover, the VX400 offers two fiber outputs, with OPT 1 copying the output on the four Ethernet ports and OPT 2 providing the option to copy or back up the output on the same Ethernet ports. This redundancy ensures uninterrupted operation and enhances the reliability of the video processing and control system.

To cater to monitoring and video output needs, the VX400 is equipped with one HDMI 1.3 port. This port allows users to connect external monitors or displays for real-time monitoring of the video output or for displaying the content to an audience. The HDMI 1.3 standard ensures high-quality video transmission, delivering crisp and vibrant visuals.

The combination of these input and output connectors provides users with a wide range of options for integrating the VX400 into their existing video setup. Whether it’s receiving input from multiple sources or driving output to various display devices, the VX400 offers the necessary flexibility and compatibility to meet diverse requirements.

Powerful Video Processing and Display Features

The Novastar VX400 is equipped with powerful video processing capabilities that enhance the overall image quality and display performance. Powered by the advanced SuperView III image quality processing technologies, the VX400 provides users with unparalleled control and flexibility over the visual output.

One of the standout features of the VX400 is its step-less output scaling, which ensures a seamless transition between different resolutions and aspect ratios. This feature eliminates the need for manual adjustments and guarantees optimal image display across various LED screens. Whether it’s upscaling or downscaling the input resolution, the VX400 maintains the integrity of the content, preserving the fine details and ensuring a visually pleasing experience.

The VX400 also offers a convenient one-click full-screen display feature, enabling users to instantly expand the content to fill the entire LED screen. This functionality is particularly useful for applications where maximum visual impact is desired, such as live events or immersive installations.

Additionally, the VX400 allows for free input cropping, giving users the freedom to select and display specific regions of the input source. This feature is valuable when working with non-standard aspect ratios or when focusing on specific content elements. By cropping the input source, users can create visually compelling displays that emphasize key information or design elements.

To ensure optimal visual performance in different lighting conditions, the VX400 incorporates automatic screen brightness adjustment. By utilizing an external light sensor, the VX400 collects ambient brightness information and dynamically adjusts the screen brightness accordingly. This feature guarantees optimal visibility and readability, regardless of whether the LED screen is placed in a brightly lit environment or a dimly lit setting.

Enhanced Control and Operation Modes

The VX400 not only excels in video processing and display capabilities but also offers enhanced control and operation modes for a seamless user experience. Users can choose between three working modes: Video Controller, Fiber Converter, and Bypass, depending on their specific requirements. Users can also freely switch between three modes.

In the Video Controller mode, the VX400 serves as a comprehensive video processing and control solution, managing the input sources, processing the video signals, and driving the LED screen. This mode provides users with full control over the visual output, allowing them to fine-tune parameters such as color adjustments, brightness, contrast, saturation, and gamma settings. The VX400’s integration with NovaLCT and NovaStar calibration software enables pixel-level brightness and chroma calibration, ensuring uniformity and consistency across the entire LED screen.

For applications that require fiber transmission, the VX400 can be switched to the Fiber Converter mode. In this mode, the device converts the video signals into a fiber-optic format for efficient and reliable transmission over long distances. This mode is particularly useful in scenarios where there is a need to transmit video signals over extended distances without signal degradation.

In cases where a direct signal path is desired, the VX400 offers the Bypass mode. In this mode, the device acts as a pass-through, allowing the video signals to bypass the processing and control functions of the VX400 and be directly routed to the LED screen. This mode is beneficial when there is a need for minimal latency or when using external video processing devices.

To further enhance user convenience, the VX400 supports multiple operation modes, providing flexibility in controlling the device. Users can choose to control the VX400 through the V-Can platform, NovaLCT software, or directly via the device’s front panel knob and buttons. This versatility allows users to select their preferred method of control based on their familiarity and workflow requirements.

Moreover, the VX400 offers easy preset saving and loading capabilities. Users can create and store up to 10 user-defined presets, allowing for quick and convenient configuration changes. This feature is especially valuable in situations where frequent adjustments or preset recall is needed, saving time and effort during setup and operation.
