Jupiter Systems Introduces New Capabilities of PixelNet Display Wall System

Jupiter Systems, the industry leader in display wall technology, today announced the introduction of enhancements to its award winning PixelNet® distributed display wall system. These improvements include the PixelNet Audio output node, the PixelNet Quad SD video input node, support of the 3G-SDI standard, a window borders and titles feature, integration of streaming video sources, and support for multiple walls – in multiple locations -- from a single PixelNet domain.

“With the introduction of these new capabilities,” said John Stark, Director of Product Management and Technical Services, “Jupiter makes good on the promise of its PixelNet technology to provide a comprehensive, integrated, and seamless platform for AV control. The enhanced system offers all of the benefits of the PixelNet approach -- scalability, flexibility, 24x7 reliability, and low cost of installation and maintenance – and it enables Jupiter to provide all the capabilities demanded by users in security, government, defense, transportation, utilities, corporate management, entertainment, healthcare, and education.”

PixelNet Audio Output Node

The new PixelNet Audio output node receives audio associated with video data captured at audio-capable PixelNet input nodes (the SDI and Analog HD input nodes) to one or more audio output nodes. Audio configurations are saved as part of PixelNet Domain Control layouts and are automatically recalled when the associated layout is selected. High-quality digital audio can be captured and transmitted end-to-end, including multi-channel encoded formats. Unlike other solutions, PixelNet users will be able to both see and hear a source, managing the two capabilities through a single drag-and-drop interface.

PixelNet Quad SD Input Node

The new PixelNet Quad-SD input node handles four composite video inputs or two S-video inputs, and can drive up to eight PixelNet windows simultaneously. With its low cost per port, the PixelNet Quad-SD node provides a solution that is ideal for many applications, especially video-intensive security monitoring.

Enhanced HD SDI Input Node With 3G-SDI Support

The HD SDI input node has been enhanced with full support of the 3G-SDI standard (SMPTE 424M) at 2.970 Gigabits per second. The extended bit rate can provide 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second.

Multiple Wall Support

With PixelNet it is now possible to manage many displays in multiple locations, and to control them independently of each other. This new feature expands the boundaries of any given PixelNet domain and can include many walls. No longer confined to a single display wall, content can now be presented in more than one place on a variety of display types.

Window Borders and Titles

PixelNet users are now able to select colored borders to surround any window on the display wall, and can add labels to the borders via an easy-to-use text editor. Users can save and instantly recall any layout of windows on the wall, including the borders and titles.

Streaming Video System 8D

The new capabilities also include Jupiter’s Streaming Video System 8D (SVS-8D), a hardware-based solution for decoding and displaying hundreds of digital video streams in a single PixelNet domain. The SVS-8D supports a broad range of camera, DVR, and encoder vendors with mixed transport and encoding methods. These include MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264 and VC-1. The new system supports unicast and multicast streams, as well as the RTCP, RTSP, SAP, and RTP protocols.

“The Streaming Video System 8D builds on Jupiter's vast experience in delivering command and control visualization systems and addresses the need for an economical and flexible method of decoding digital video found in heterogeneous environments,” said Stark. "No other solution offers the flexibility of simultaneously supporting so many video decoding standards.”
