- Ordinary graphic images
- Extremely large graphic images, up to 1 gigabyte or larger
- Digital movies, including standard and HDTV format
- Streaming content from cameras and other live sources
- Live “sender” feeds that let a room full of people view the constantly changing screen displays of one or more computers
Hiperwall lets you resize and relocate each content object anywhere on the video wall, within a single monitor or across multiple monitors. It’s as easy as moving and resizing windows on the desktop of your personal computer. Hiperwall also provides advanced capabilities like zoom, rotation, shading and transparency, enabling users to examine content with increased flexibility and effectiveness.
The key breakthrough of the Hiperwall system is a distributed software architecture that applies classical parallel processing techniques to overcome the performance limitations typically associated with the display of large or numerous items on multiple display devices. The result is a high performance, high resolution visualization system that provides high scalability without requiring the need for any specialized hardware infrastructure. This results in multiple technical and business advantages.
Features & Benefits
|High Performance Distributed Architecture||The key component of a Hiperwall installation is a set of computer monitors that are physically adjacent to each other in a “tiled” arrangement. Each monitor is driven by a PC that can be external, or embedded in the monitor as found in the Samsung UXn family. Each PC/monitor pair is called a display node. Each of these nodes is responsible for displaying a portion of the overall image that is being shown on the Hiperwall system. Each PC is responsible for rendering the portion of the overall image that is being displayed on its associated monitor. Thus, all of the PCs work in parallel to render the total image, avoiding the performance limitations that would come from attempting to render the entire image on a single PC.|
|Scalable Deployments||Since each display node includes a monitor and PC, as you add more display nodes to a Hiperwall installation you increase the total display area and the total processing power. As a result, it is possible to expand the Hiperwall system without any practical limits. Systems can start with as few as 2 display nodes and can grow as large as space and network bandwidth permit.|
|Hardware Agnostic||The Hiperwall software runs as a standard application operating on a standard PC connected via a standard ethernet network. The only specialized technology is the software itself. This reliance on standard hardware eliminates the cost and complexity of specialized switches and servers while giving the user greater flexibility in selecting from a variety of price performance points to meet their particular application requirements.|
|Display Agnostic||The Hiperwall software running on each display node is rendering images through the video controller. As such, the software is not aware of the specific type of monitor being used. While LCD monitors are the most commonly used display technology, the user has the choice of any type of display, including LCD, Plasma, CRT, Projector or any of the new and emerging technologies like Organic LED. This flexibility enables specific display technologies to be deployed to best meet the resolution, image size, brightness and cost requirements of any application.|
Multiple Data Types
The Hiperwall system is capable of displaying multiple data types on the Hiperwall video wall display. You can display one extremely large piece of content and spread a variety of contents across the entire video wall.
- Standard images – Hiperwall can display digital images in jpeg, png, bmp and tiff formats
- Ultra-high resolution images – Hiperwall can display extremely high resolution images in standard graphic formats, up to 1 gigabyte or larger in size
- Videos – Hiperwall can play digital QuickTime movie files
- Streaming content – Hiperwall can play live content from digital cameras and playback devices streamed across the network in standard or high definition
- Senders – Hiperwall can display real-time replicas of the screen display of any network attached computer, allowing that PC to “send” its screen to the wall
The Hiperwall system allows you to control how each of the content types listed above is displayed on the Hiperwall video wall display.
- Location – Move any piece of content to any location on the video wall, as easily as dragging a window around the desktop of a PC
- Size – Resize any piece of content to any size. Have it occupy one area of a single monitor or expand it to cover the entire video wall
- Zoom – Zoom in to see fine detail or zoom out to see the big picture
- Rotation – Rotate any piece of content to any orientation
- Transparency – Adjust the transparency of any piece of content from fully opaque to fully transparent, great for doing visual overlays
- Shading – Adjust the color shading of any object to expose new visual information or match desired aesthetics
- Cloning – Multiple copies of any content can be displayed simultaneously on multiple locations on the wall. Each clone can be independently sized, positioned, rotated and colored.
