For medium size systems, the VSN870 wall controller has dependable performance supporting a large number of displays
With Datapath’s advanced graphics display technology, the VSN870 offers full flexibility in display types and orientation, video management, input and output configurations.
The VSN870 features an Intel Core i7 processor providing increased capability for system data video processing. The 19” industrial PC chassis has been designed for display controller applications specifically in mind and offers a compact extensible design, yet with excellent airflow management, making it easy to install and manage in difficult physical environments.
This Datapath video wall controller has been designed, developed and optimised to operate with the latest generation of our world leading Datapath PCI Express graphics and video capture cards. The graphics cards are PCI Express compatible providing support for HD, SD, DVI and RGB video overlays. They can provide a maximum resolution of four times 1920x1200 x32 bit. Datapath video capture cards provide HD capture or HDMI capture capabilities as well as a number of high resolution video capture modes including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, dual-link DVI, RGB, VGA and Composite; for analogue video and Standard Definition.
The VSN870 video wall controller is built around Datapath’s Express9 backplane and SBC2 single board computer. The Express9 features nine slot backplane for flexibility. The SBC2 features an Intel Core i7 2600 processor, 8GB of memory (16GB option available) a full set of I/O and RS232 for automation solutions.
The VSN490 uses an ASUS Z97-WS motherboard to provide flexibility and suitability for the smaller, more compact, video wall project. The VSN870 is fully compatible with Datapath Wall Control software, a Microsoft Windows® based application enabling easy configuration and set up of your video wall controller.
The SLink card can be used instead of a PICMG 1.3 SBC to configure the Express9 as an expansion backplane from a standard PC or from other Express9 backplanes by connecting to an HLink card.
The VSN870 wall controller has an industrial SBC to provide reliability, also air flow management is optimised through the fan and chassis build. Wall Monitor is a software application for monitoring system status for Datapath’s video wall controllers. This application will monitor; CPU core(s) temperature, system PSU voltages and GPU temperatures. It can provide the user with a warning which is either an audio notification, an error message or an email if the voltages and temperature are out of specification. Wall monitor can shut down the system automatically if any readings become critical.
Datapath offers a full suite of software applications for display control in different applications and business environments, to meet a diverse set of customer requirements. A well structured set of graphics and video capture drivers allows OEM suppliers to build efficient display control and content management applications, making full use of the underlying hardware capability, whilst being protected from the intricate details of hardware resource management. Datapath’s WallControl-red application offers an effective tool for display controllers in diverse end user markets.
Datapath’s WallControl-red video wall software is designed to make full use of Datapath’s graphics and capture hardware technology and maximises the use of available hardware acceleration both on video inputs and outputs. WallControl-red video wall software allows advanced interactive desktop control and configuration, interactively opening, moving, sizing and positioning video overlay, RGB/ DVI/ SD/ HD windows and Microsoft Windows application software. This is a useful application where specific areas of captured input need to be individually display and controlled, such as command and control video walls.
Datapath WallControl-red video wall software is now available in the following languages - English (UK & USA), French, Spanish, German, Polish, Putonghua, Russian, Netherlands, Japanese.
