The Pharos VLC is designed to control the world’s largest lighting façade projects. It renders multiple layers of effects and video from internal storage or live input, and features processing including rotation and masking. Up to 3,000 universes of eDMX and DVI-D can be output from a single unit with integrated show control.
The VLC has dual full HD players, supporting composition of video and effects with perfect fading between them, as well as moving or rotating content. Four additional overlay layers are available for text and lower resolution videos. Mask regions can be defined for local colour/intensity adjustments, regardless of the content playing.
Perfect for applications such as ferris wheels, bridges and stadia, VLC provides the tools to easily wrap content around a structure, with real-time video manipulation – such as rotation, mirroring and cloning – removing the need for additional equipment.
After initial commissioning using Pharos Designer, the rugged 2U device is self-contained using its 512GB SSD for media (H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG/QuickTime) and designed for ultra-reliable 24/7 operation. It also integrates seamlessly with other Pharos equipment, supports all the extensive third-party integration features of the Pharos system, and can be monitored remotely over the internet using its built-in web interface.
