High Performance Wall Controller
Datapath's VSN970 wall controller provides a high end, powerful solution for complex video wall installations (or control rooms). Providing complete control over large control room environments from military installations to CCTV and security suites to medical operating theatres. The VSN970 has been designed, developed and optimised to operate with the latest generation of Datapath’s world leading PCI Express graphics and video capture cards providing High Definition video and audio, including the capture of multiple HDCP sources for display across the entire video wall.
Intel® Core i7 Processing
The VSN970 system incorporates the Datapath PCI Express9 Gen3 switched fabric backplane, providing nine high bandwidth PCIe slots for use with any Datapath video capture or graphics card. Also providing further benefits with the Datapath's SBC4, a single board computer featuring an Intel Core i7 processor with up to 16 GB of DDR3 memory and on-board graphics.
Datapath offer a full suite of applications for display control in a wide range of scenarios and business environments. WallControl software offers the ability to display video data in real time giving users control over a wide set of features including: video resolution and scale, cropping area, frame rate and position on the video wall. The Datapath Vision set of drivers allow OEM suppliers to build efficient display control and content management applications, making full use of the underlying hardware capability.
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’s IP Video Server augments WallControl-red video wall software enabling large numbers of simultaneous IP video streams from cameras or other source. IP Video Server can be used in conjunction with Datapath’s Render Station up to 240 IP video windows.
Datapath WallControl-red video wall software is now available in the following languages - English (UK & USA), French, Spanish, German, Polish, Putonghua, Russian, Dutch, Japanese.
The VSN970 is designed for 24/7 use and each component has been specifically tested to ensure very high reliability in demanding conditions. Each VSN970 is pre-installed with Wall Monitor software, an application that montiors system temperatures and includes alarm mechanisms that can warn operators if the system begins to operate outside of normal parameters.
Datapath offer a range of system and graphics card BIOS images that allow increased number of screens.
