NovaStar VX1000 All-in-One Controller Introduction

The VX1000 is NovaStar’s new all-in-one controller that integrates video processing and video control into one box. It features 10 Ethernet ports and supports video controller, fiber converter and Bypass working modes. A VX1000 unit can drive up to 6.5 million pixels, with the maximum output width and height up to 10,240 pixels and 8192 pixels,respectively, which is ideal for ultra-wide and ultra-high LED screen applications.

The VX1000 is capable of receiving a variety of video signals and processing high-resolution 4K×1K@60Hz images.

In addition, the device features stepless output scaling, low latency, 3D, pixel-level brightness and chroma calibration and more, to present you with an excellent image display experience.

What’s more, the VX1000 can work with NovaStar’s supreme software NovaLCT and V-Can to greatly facilitate your in-field operations and control, such as screen configuration, Ethernet port backup settings, layer management,

preset management and firmware update.

Thanks to its powerful video processing and sending capabilities and other outstanding features, the VX1000 can be widely used in applications such as medium and high-end rental, stage control systems and fine-pitch LED screens.

For monitoring or video output

Self-adaptive OPT 1 for either video input or sending card output

Thanks to the self-adaptive design, OPT 1 can be used as either an input or output connector,

depending on its connected device.

Audio input and output

− Audio input accompanied with HDMI input


− Audio output via a multifunction card

− Output volume adjustment supported

 Low latency

Reduce the delay from the input to receiving

card to 20 lines when the low latency function

and Bypass mode are both enabled.

 3x layers

− Adjustable layer size and position

− Adjustable layer priority

 Output synchronization

An internal input source or external Genlock can

be used as the sync source to ensure the output

images of all cascaded units in sync.

 Powerful video processing

− Based on SuperView III image quality

processing technologies to provide stepless

output scaling.

− One-click full screen display

− Free input cropping

 Easy preset saving and loading

− Up to 10 user-defined presets supported

− Load a preset by simply pressing one button

 Multiple kinds of hot backup

− Backup between devices

− Backup between Ethernet ports

− Backup between input sources

 Mosaic input source supported

The mosaic source is composed of several input

connectors of the same type.

 Up to 4 units cascaded for image mosaic

 Three working modes

− Video Controller

− Fiber Converter

− Bypass

 All-round color adjustment

Input source and LED screen color adjustment

supported, including brightness, contrast,

saturation, hue and Gamma

 3D function

Work with the EMT200 3D emitter and matched

3D glasses to present a 3D visual experience.

 Pixel level brightness and chroma calibration Work with NovaLCT and NovaStar calibration software to support brightness and chroma calibration on each LED, which can effectively

remove color discrepancies and greatly improve LED display brightness and chroma consistency,allowing for better image quality.

 Multiple operation modes

Control the device as you wish via V-Can,NovaLCT or device front panel knob and buttons.


Front Panel

No. Area Function

1 LCD screen Display the device status, menus, submenus and messages.

2 Knob  Rotate the knob to select a menu item or adjust the parameter value.

 Press the knob to confirm the setting or operation.

3 ESC button Exit the current menu or cancel an operation.

4 Control area  Open or close a layer (main layer and PIP layers), and show the layer status.

Status LEDs:

− On (blue): The layer is opened.

− Flashing (blue): The layer is being edited.

− On (white): The layer is closed.

 SCALE: A shortcut button for the full screen function. Press the button to make the layer of the lowest priority fill the entire screen.

Status LEDs:

− On (blue): Full screen scaling is turned on.

− On (white): Full screen scaling is turned off.

5 Input source buttons Show the input source status and switch the layer input source.

Status LEDs:

 On (blue): An input source is accessed.

 Flashing (blue): The input source is not accessed but used by the layer.

 On (white): The input source is not accessed or the input source is abnormal.


 When a 4K video source is connected to OPT 1, OPT 1-1 has a signal but OPT 1-2 does not have a signal.

 When two 2K video sources are connected to OPT 1, OPT 1-1 and OPT 1-2 both have a 2K signal.

6 Shortcut function buttons 

PRESET: Access the preset settings menu.

 TEST: Access the test pattern menu.

 Freeze: Freeze the output image.

 FN: A customizable button


Hold down the knob and ESC button simultaneously for 3s or longer to lock or unlock the front panel buttons.
