The F5 panel’s LEDs reproduce video at 14-bit grayscale
Chauvet Professional has added to its F Series LED panels with two new products: the F2 2.9mm pixel pitch panel and F5 IP, an outdoor-rated 5.9mm pixel pitch panel.
Chauvet reports that the F2 is its highest resolution panel and has been designed for applications where clarity is needed at any viewing angle, even at distances as close as 2.3m. It has high-quality, black-bodied LEDs, can reproduce video at 14-bit grayscale and can operate on an A5 or 18-bit Novastar card. Digital LED drivers in the F2 can deliver a 3.84kHz refresh rate for flicker-free images and the unit comes with a maximum illuminance of just under 1,500 nits. The panel also includes a contrast ratio of 8,500:1 and a pixel density of 112,896/m2.
The F5 panel is rated IP65 and works with the VIP Drive 43 Nova using the Novastar control protocol. Its black-bodied LEDs reproduce video at 14-bit grayscale, operating on the Novastar A5 receiving card. The F5 has a 1.92kHz refresh rate, maximum 6,000 nits illuminance and a 12,000:1 contrast.
Both panels also feature optimised heat distribution across the entire panel to improve colour quality. They also have lots in common with other products in the F Series, including a specialised frame design that allows them to be hung overhead, stacked on the ground or mounted on the wall. They can be serviced in the field from the front with the included service tool or from the rear using the built-in handles.
