LVP615 can maximally output 2304*1152 or customized resolution with maximal horizontal 3840 pixels or vertical 1920 pixel. To drive such high definition, LED display requires two transmission cards in cascade, so LVP615 provides 2 positions for two built-in transmission cards.
If the actual definition of LED display exceeds the maximum output definition of LVP615, you may divide the whole LED screen into pieces of smaller LED screens, then put them together in Mosaic manner by connecting multiple sets of LVP615 in parallel to integrate the smaller pieces of LED screens into a large LED display.
With frame synchronization technology, LVP615 solves the problems of misplacement and delay of output image existing in ultra-large LED mosaic, being able to provide real-time, clear and fluent display effects.
LVP615 supports multiple units cascading splicing. By this way, smaller pieces of LED screens can be integrated into a large display. For example, if the output definition of LVP615 is set as 1920×1080, and we put 2 sets of LVP605 together horizontally in parallel, it will be able to connect any LED display of up to 3840×1080 pixels.

Below is a 2×2 mosaic example using 4 sets of LVP615, telling us how to use multi-units cascade of LVP615 and what we should pay attention to.
The definition of the LED screen is 3456×1920, we can divide it into the four small pieces of LED of 1728×960 pixels as shown in figure below, each piece of small LED screen is driven by a unit of LVP615. With total 4 sets of LVP615, the 3456×1920 pixels LED screen is able to display a full picture.
Below is the system topological diagram:
As above diagram shows, all input signals are connected to and switched by #0 LVP615. The 2 same DVI outputs of #0 LVP615 are connect to #1 LVP615 and #2 LVP615. Then DVI loop to #3 and #4.
After that, the output signal of #0 LVP615 is cropped and scale up in #1 LVP615, #2 LVP615, #3 LVP615 and #4 LVP615.
Finally the image that they output will be finally displayed as a whole picture on 4 pieces of LED screens.
The parameters of the 4 units of LVP615 are as below:
Parameter setups of processor
E.1 LED total width
E.2 LED total height
E.4 Unit width
E.5 Unit height
E.6 Unit horizontal start
E.7 Unit vertical start
E.8 Synchronization splicing
In order to ensure all output images are synchronous to each other, please note the following settings:
1. The input signals can be only DVI signals, and if the processor is in mosaic mode, it will be unable to switch input signals;
2. All the 5 processors must to be set to be the same in output definitions/resolution.
七、 Remote Control Instruction
LVP615 opens RS232 control protocol supporting PC, Android or IOS intelligent remote control terminal. Here we instruct the hardware connection and software operation as below.
(一) Hardware Communication
LVP615’s remote control ports include RS232, USB, Wired network and Wifi control. As below we illustrate hardware communication connection and setup respectively.
RS232 is common port for remote control. When use RS232 control, we only need to use an RS232 cable to connect PC to processor’s RS232 port, then we can use software to remote control processor. When PC does not have RS232 port, USB control method can be used.
Because LVP615 built-in network convert RS232 module, after wired network connecting LAN and setting relative network configuration parameters (refer user manual page 38 “6. Communication ”), LVP615 has been a work station in the local area network. So another terminal device in the local area network can control the LVP615 through software. As the picture below, through software, anyone of terminal (work station) in the local area network can control the LVP615 in the local area network by remote method.
LVP615 is built in WIFI module. Through this module, user can achieve WIFI remote control of LVP615. The module supports 2 WIFI connection methods:
First., Wireless Router, another wireless device connects the module directly and control.
Second, Through WIFI connect wireless Router and become a work station in the local area network, so another terminal device in the local area network through software to control LVP615 by remote method, the control method is similar through LAN port connecting.
There are relative setups and instruction about LVP615 WIFI module and how to realize the 2 control methods as below:
NOTICE: When using WIFI connection, WIFI ANTENNA must be installed.
