New Hiperwall 3.0 Provides Unique Features for Streamlining Content Development and Delivery
Hiperwall’s 3.0 advance video wall and distributed visualization software adds animation capabilities to extend creative functionality
to deliver engaging digital signage content at reduced cost and development time.
May 17, 2012 – Hiperwall, Inc., the leader in high performance video walls and distributed visualization systems, today announced Hiperwall version 3.0 that reduces the cost and development time in creating most digital signage content by eliminating the need to do time consuming rendering in advance. Instead of rendering all the content elements into a video, Hiperwall 3.0 reduces cost and production time while increasing flexibility and enabling easier, faster changes.
An industry unique feature, Hiperwall 3.0’s animation capabilities is a significant extension to the Hiperwall 2.0 platform which has been providing customers worldwide with a unique ability to deliver content to single monitors, video walls and distributed displays. Hiperwall 3.0 provides the ability to animate content elements, bringing to life content which might otherwise be static and therefore less engaging. With the new animation editor, users can control when each element enters, where it is displayed, how it is sized, colored and rotated, and how special effects like transparency, mosaic, and black/white filters are applied. Once the animation sequences are created, it is easy to add, remove or make changes to content elements as well as modify the timing of the animation sequences, introduce new elements or make a variety of other changes. Hiperwall 3.0 renders each content element as an individual object in real time, eliminating the traditional rendering process and reducing development time and expense.
“These industry-first capabilities give users the ability to create dynamic digital signage content with never before seen simplicity and speed,” said Jeff Greenberg, Hiperwall CEO. “The addition of the new animation capabilities eliminates the cost and time delay of the traditional approach of rendering everything in advance into frequently used video formats. Since each object remains as an individual content element we give the user the ability to recombine and reuse the content elements without the need to re-render.”
Hiperwall 3.0 delivers a simple to use and comprehensive digital signage solution that supports small, medium and enterprise digital signage needs. The advantage of Hiperwall 3.0’s new animation system:
- Reduces development time and cost – Hiperwall 3.0 eliminates the need for rendering in advance. Instead, the user can combine elements on the fly, providing a real-time rendering capability.
- Reduces Revision time and cost – since the content elements are maintained as independent objects, it is a simple process for the user to recombine them in new ways to modify the delivered visual experience.
- No expertise required – highly-intuitive controls make creating digital signage content simple by reducing the reliance on specialty-trained technicians.
The applications for digital signage cross many industries and intended applications. Hiperwall’s pioneering video wall and distributed visualization system is a completely scalable architecture and is uniquely suited to meet the visual communication requirements of many diverse applications including government facilities, corporate offices, restaurants/bars/night clubs, transportation hubs, medical offices, banks, colleges and universities, to mention a few. Since Hiperwall 3.0 continues to use a highly-intuitive user interface, it is easy for organizations of any size to use it for visual communications solutions in almost any application.
The Hiperwall system will work with any type of display, whether it’s LCD, plasma, projection cube, CRT or rear-projection, of any size and resolution. Hiperwall uses ordinary computers connected together using an ordinary Ethernet network, eliminating the need for complex expensive hardware devices traditionally required for video wall systems.
