The VLC is a rugged 1U 19” rackmount unit with separate Gigabit Ethernet ports for management and DMX-over-Ethernet (eDMX) output. It is available in multiple variants with capacities ranging from 25,600 channels up to a massive 768,000 channels from a single unit, with further scaling by using multiple Controllers connected and synchronised over Ethernet.


The VLC can be part of a network of up to 40 Pharos Controllers, with the network capable of simultaneous output of multiple protocols - including Artnet I, II, III & IV, Kinet V1 & sACN.


VLC has separate Gigabit Ethernet ports for Management and eDMX Protocol output. Also an on-board Serial port allows configurable RS-232 commands to be sent and received. DVI-D Video Input allows HD video capture for playback over the pixel matrix. Video files can also be stored internally on the 128GB SSD with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, MJPEG and Quicktime formats supported.
