Datapath FX4 Multi-display – Available in late May[:in]New Datapath 4K multi-display FX4 available May

This new and long-awaited multi-display controller receives a signal from 4k to 4096x2160p 60 fps o UHD 2160p a 30 fps through input Displayport 1.2 of the HDMI 1.4, respectively. This signal can be distributed to synchronously between 4 monitors per controller, positioned horizontally or vertically and showing anywhere incoming image. In this way, They can be achieved impactful creative efgectos.

FX4 can chain multiple Ethernet via cable, and programming of the signal is done from anywhere on the local network with free software, Wall Designer, which facilitates placing the image in mositores. Once programming can happen to FX4 by network or USB for environments where there is no coverage.[:in]Advancements in digital signage requirements mean that customers demand greater freedom in creating and deploying small, medium and large scale signage projects. The Datapath Fx4 is a multi-faceted stand alone display controller that supports a choice of inputs, high bandwidth loop-through as well as 4 genlocked outputs in either DisplayPort or HDMI.

The Fx4 features a DisplayPort1.2 main input alongside two HDMI1.4 inputs offering either 4k 4096x2160p at 60 fps or UHD 2160p at 30 fps respectively. The intuitive user interface allows users to determine which input is used.

Each output monitor can take its input from any region of the input image as all of the required cropping, scaling, rotation and frame-rate conversion is handled by the Datapath Fx4 hardware. These regions can overlap to allow any output to replicate another or can be configured to support any creative splice of the source material. This allows the support of many non-rectangular screen arrangements with uneven gaps, as well as any mix of monitor orientations.

As an example, high quality downscaling allows the display of a 4k source on a single output, while other outputs can crop and upscale to create an almost unlimited multi-screen canvas.

Datapath – Active Connect cable 60 to send 4K @ 100 m

ActiveConnect new cables are designed to transmit 4K at 60fps over long distances. Ideal for digital signage, cine en casa, video walls y demás entornos que precisan de una señal fiel de punto a punto.

Cualquier instalación de video wall o cartelería digital requiere una planificación previa de cóomo conectar los distintos equipos casi siempre a largas distancias, y usando para ellos cables pesados y con necesidad de una fuente de alimentación adicional y/o costosos conversores para mantener integra la señal.

Con los nuevos cables ActiveConnect HDMI o DisplayPort no solo eliminas la necesidad de las fuentes de alimentación adicionales, si no que también son extremadamente ligeros (diámetro 7mm peso 15 gr por metro) y faciles de introducir en conductos de cableado.

Los cables tienen categoria Plenum y son certificados UL.
Disponibles en:
25m (HDMI 2.0 y DisplayPort 1.2)
50m (HDMI 2.0 y DisplayPort 1.2)
100m (DisplayPort 1.2)

New camera and new models PTZ encoder Pearl

Lumio Epiphan new cameras bring a viewing angle of 72.5 °, zoom óptico de 12x y zoom digital de 2x. Captura es de 12Mp, 1080p a 60 fotogramas por segundo. Con el mando a distancia sze pueden crear presets y asi reducir la necesidad de un operario adicional.

También aparecen dos nuevos modelos del popular codificador Pearl: ambos en formato rack, el primero con las 4 entradas de captura habituales, el segundo con dos unidades Pearl independientes en un rack 2u. Llevando la salida de la prima unidad Pearl a una de las entradas de la segunda unidad permite una realización en directo muy sofisiticada sin necesidad de un mixer independiente, pero también se pueden usar las dos unidades en tandem con el fin de ofrecer una redundancia de la realización en directo.
