Hiperwall Announces v1.2 of its High-Performance, Affordable Video Wall System
IRVINE, Calif. (July 27, 2010) -- Hiperwall, Inc., the leader in innovative, affordable video wall technology, today announced version 1.2 of its namesake high-performance, low-cost video wall system.
Available to all new customers and as an upgrade for all previously installed systems, Hiperwall v1.2 includes a new ‘Scheduler’ function that enables an administrator to configure the system to automatically add or remove content from the video wall at specific times and dates. An example of an application benefitting from this feature would be a video wall inside a shopping mall displaying store and restaurant promotions at specific times of the day.
The latest Hiperwall software version also features a ‘Web Services Interface’ function that turns any PC or other networked digital device, including AMX or Crestron controller systems, into a remote control unit that can change the video wall display in a single room or throughout a facility.
“These and other features now included in the Hiperwall software are receiving rave reviews from existing customers and prospects,” said Hiperwall CEO Jeff Greenberg. “The enhancements in v1.2 were driven by our customers and resellers. Every new feature or enhancement was designed to meet the needs of a specific customer or market segment.”
The Hiperwall software solution is hardware agnostic and requires only ordinary PCs, ordinary monitors and an ordinary Ethernet network. The system displays still images up to 1GB resolution or larger, HD videos, live HD video streams and PC applications, turning a bank of monitors into an ultra-high resolution video wall. Multiple feeds can be displayed on the wall simultaneously and users can reposition and resize each feed as easily as moving and resizing windows on a PC desktop. Each feed can be scaled up for viewing on several monitors or the entire wall instantly depending upon the user’s discretion.
Some of the other new features in Hiperwall v1.2 include:
• the ‘Slide Show’ feature now permits the control of duration times and the display size of specified content;
• a ‘Fractional SmartSnap’ feature allows users to display content on whole monitor increments or in one-half, one-third or one-quarter monitor increments;
• ‘Diagnostic Display’ allows the control screen to show data on each video wall display node for troubleshooting;
• ‘Magnifier’ allows the control node operator to see an enlargement of any portion of the video wall;
• the ‘Streamer Node’ feature now has enhanced video stream image quality, including the ability to stream 1080 high-definition video.
With its latest software upgrade and completely scalable architecture, the Hiperwall system is uniquely suited to meet the visual communication requirements of many diverse applications including digital signage; command and control rooms at government, military, utility and transportation installations; trading floors, medical/scientific imaging, aerial imaging, broadcast, fleet management and more.
