Receiving Card

A8 is a high-end receiving card developed
by NovaStar, featuring small size and large loading capacity with a single card
loading up to 512 x 256(PWM IC) pixels.

A8 can work with the independent controller
MCTRL R5, making display rotate at any angel. A8 can also work with the
independent controller MCTRL4K featuring large loading capacity and support
HDR10 compliant video input, realizing larger dynamic brightness range and
larger color space, and making the image smoother.

A8 supports pixel level brightness and
chroma calibration by working with NovaLCT and NovaCLB to realize calibration
on each pixel. It can effectively remove color difference and greatly improve
LED display image consistency, presenting smoother images to users. In
addition, it also supports image rotation in 90° increments, creating richer
images and improving visual experiences.

Software and hardware designs of the A8
concern the user deployment as well as operating and maintenance scenarios,
enabling easier deployment, more stable operating and more efficient


Advanced hardware design:

  • The small-size hardware design is applicable to scenarios of small cabinet space and small pixel pitch.
  • The used DDR3 connectors have stable contact performance and good compatibility.

Useful software design:

  • Support for HDR10.
  • Support for low latency (Supported by dedicated firmware program).
  • Support for 18Bit+.
  • Support for ClearView.
  • Support for LVDS transmission (Supported by dedicated firmware program).
