C1

Event Controller

C1, a console specially designed for NovaStar’s terminal video processing products, such as J series, is mainly used for live stage control.

The C1 is designed with two LCD screens. One is used for previewing input sources. The other, together with buttons on the panel, is used to configure the layer size, layer position, input source, output resolution, layer border and input source cropping under each preset.

The C1 is also designed with a joystick and T-Bar. The joystick is used to precisely adjust the size and position of layers. The T-Bar supports adjustment of 1024 levels of layer transparency, finely controlling the transition effects of presets and PVW, PGM for switching.

Thanks to the cool lighted buttons, highly sensitive joystick and T-Bar, plus the two LCD screens, the C1 is extremely easy to operate, making live stage control most convenient.
