Chauvet Professional: F4IP Video Panel

Michael Eddy

The F4IP LED video panel from Chauvet Professional has been designed with both dry and wet weather in mind. With SMD 1921 LEDs, a pixel pitch of 4.8mm, and 5,000 NITs illuminance, the new panel has the brightness and clarity to make an impression in outdoor applications even on the sunniest days. At the same time though, its construction and IP65 rating also allow it to keep working even in inclement weather.
