Dynamic lighting elevates the energy and excitement of any interactive event, from music concerts and dance clubs to house parties and the local karaoke bar. With the VC-1-DMX Video Lighting Converter, it’s never been easier to bring the impact of a pro light show to any event you put on.
The VC-1-DMX automatically generates control commands for your DMX lighting setup based on input from video and audio sources, eliminating the need for a dedicated lighting operator. Colour and brightness change based on the current video image, and lights and mirror balls operate in sync with the music tempo. And if you want to dive deeper, the VC-1-DMX supports external MIDI operation from hardware control surfaces, electronic musical instruments, and computer-based production software.
The VC-1-DMX makes it simple to synchronize video, sound, and lighting and create the unified presentations you see at big events with dedicated lighting operators. Simply connect your sources to the A/V inputs on the VC-1-DMX and let Roland’s advanced technology do all the work. Signals are analyzed at lightning speed and sent to the 3-pin and 5-pin DMX outputs, ready for distribution to all your DMX gear.
The VC-1-DMX can receive digital video and sound via HDMI and analogue sound through its stereo RCA audio inputs. The powerful processing engine analyzes the content to extract color, brightness, and other information from the video, along with the beat, tempo, volume, and more from the sound.
If you want extended control over your system, the VC-1-DMX has you covered with integrated MIDI-to-DMX conversion. Connect a hardware MIDI controller and use MIDI control change messages to adjust a variety DMX parameters such as global dimming, tilt, pan, and more. USB MIDI is also supported, allowing you to control your DMX setup from lighting or music production software on your computer.
Using dedicated editor software on your Mac or Windows computer, you can quickly configure the VC-1-DMX for all your DMX lighting hardware. Freely change assignments across 512 DMX channels to match the control needs of your specific gear.
