NovaStar CX40 Pro 5G LED Display Controller



Category: Brand:


The CX40 Pro is a 4K LED display controller in the brand-new control system COEX series of Novastar. This controller offers rich video input connectors (HDMI 2.0, DP 1.2 and 12G-SDI) and supports 5Gbps output via Ethernet port and 40Gbps remote transmission via optical port. The CX40 Pro can also work with the brand-new software VMP (Vision Management Platform) to provide a better operation and control experience. Featuring a 5.5-inch touch LCD, it makes user operation and control much easier.

Advanced Functions

  • 3 independent layers
    • Support up to 3x 4K layers and layer priority adjustment in Z order.
  • Image scaling
    • Support 3 image scaling modes: custom, pixel to pixel, and snap to canvas
  • Color Replacement
    • Support free replacement of any color on the image without affecting the performance of other colors. Replacement of highly saturated colors is recommended for better effect.
  • 14Ch Color Correction
    Support precise adjustment to hue, saturation and brightness of black, white and the 12 derived standard colors of the red, green and blue primary colors.
  • Curves
    Support adjustment to the image RGBW mapping curves.
  • 3D LUT
    The 17×17×17 3D LUT .cube files are supported to adjust the video source colors.
  • Dynamic Booster
    Real-time analysis and dynamic adjustment are made to each frame to significantly improve the display contrast and image details for better visual experience, and effectively control and lower the display power consumption, extending the service life of the LED screen.
  • Full Grayscale Calibration
    • Work with NovaStar’s high-precision calibration system and the C3200 scientific grade camera to generate unique calibration coefficients for each grayscale, ensuring uniformity of each grayscale and dramatically improving the image


  •  HDR
    − Support HDR10 and comply with the SMPTE
    ST 2084 and SMPTE ST 2086 standards.
    − Support HLG.
  • Latency
    − Support low latency and the controller load
    capacity is not reduced. The latency at the
    controller is 0 frame (less than 1 ms) in
    Send-Only Controller working mode and 1
    frame in All-In-One Controller working mode.
    − Support additional latency. Zero to two
    frames of latency can be added at the
  • Frame Rate Adaptive
    The controller can be adaptive to various video input frame rates, including decimal frame rates.
    Custom frame rates are also supported and the step size of fine tuning frame rate is as small as 0.01 Hz.
  • Two working modes
    Support the All-In-One Controller and Send-Only Controller working modes.
    − In the Send-Only Controller mode, the latency can be reduced by one frame.
    − In the All-In-One Controller mode, the layer and scaling functions are available.
  • Display system monitoring
    Support monitoring of the device status and screen status. Any fault and alarm information can be reported actively.

Device Controls

  • Touch LCD
    Come with a 5.5-inch 1080p touch LCD. It is sensitive and rugged, allowing users to control the device easily by tapping on the LCD.
  • VMP software control
    The device can be connected to the VMP software to provide easy and convenient operations and smart device management.
  • Cascading control via Ethernet
    The Gigabit Ethernet control ports support TCP/IP protocol and star topology. No switch or router is needed to deploy multiple devices on the same LAN via device cascading as the
    network switching function is already built in.
