Today is all about the Datapath display wall controller! It’s one box with four outputs and a million possibilities! Everyone faces similar challenges using video walls. Fast transmission speeds are a must for project success and often require long distances for a network of cabling. The Datapath box offers the perfect solution for staging and broadcasting. With four SDI outputs and the ability to loop multiple units together, no event is too complex. Datapath’s intuitive Wall Designer software and fully featured API means that whole projects can be quickly set up and easy to manage.
Each output monitor can take its input from any region of the input image as all the required cropping, scaling, rotation and frame-rate conversion is handled by the Datapath Box 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, as well as any mix of monitor orientations allowing users to create an almost unlimited multi-monitor canvas. The Datapath also allows users to pre-load an image for immediate display in those cases when the media source or cables malfunction and no signal is being received.
The Datapath Box is the simple solution to your display wall! Ensure they are all in sync, with the desired imaging on each monitor. The options are unlimited without causing a headache!
