P3-200 System Controller for LED Screens Latest in Martin P3 Family

Posted on Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

The P3-200 system controller is a new addition to Martin Professional’s P3 system controller family for LED screens. It combines all the features of Martin’s advanced P3-100 video signal controller yet adds SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI input capability for optimized use in TV/broadcast environments.

The P3-200 retains all the advantages of the P3-100 system controller like built-in scaling and de-interlacing, multiple video protocol and resolution support, built-in graphical user interface, and direct DMX control of brightness, color, pixel-mapping and more. It works with all Martin LED display systems (LC Series with P3 Upgrade Kit, LC Plus Series and EC Series) and is software and showfile compatible with the P3-100 System Controller.

With the P3 family of video signal controllers, Martin says it has moved LED screen processing from backstage to center stage, making screen processing part of the creative process and becoming the preferred choice of designers who seek to fully integrate video with lighting.

Martin P3 controllers allow full integration with lighting control via DMX512. Users can finally treat LED screens like lighting instruments with direct cue-by-cue control of brightness, image rotation and position, color temperature, and more. P3 System Controllers give full control over the video signal before the image is displayed on screen, and all at 16-bit color depth per color for perfect image quality without artifacts.

For applications requiring total integration with motion control, Martin P3 controllers enable real-time live position and rotation control from a Kinesys automation and motion control system to automatically adapt LED panel positioning in real time.

With P3 controllers, any LED panel or group of panels can be positioned in single pixel increments and this position can be updated in real time, enabling the panels to act like floating windows on top of the content. Latency (system delay) is virtually undetectable. P3 controllers also enable panels to be placed at any angle while maintaining the content at a right angle.

Thanks to the power of high-speed networking technology, setup of a P3-enabled LED screen is a matter of a few mouse clicks. The P3 controller automatically aligns and addresses the entire screen.

P3 System Controllers cover a wide variety of video input, enabling all possible video sources to be fed into Martin LED screens including composite video, S-Video, component video, DVI-D, SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and even video straight off your desktop.
