PixelNet is not an evolutionary product--it's revolutionary. Jupiter has set a new bar with this!
Hayward, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2008
Jupiter Systems (http://www.jupiter.com), the industry leader in display wall processors, is pleased to announce that its new PixelNet™ product line has been awarded "Best of InfoComm 2008" for control rooms by AV industry analyst Gary Kayye.
Kayye, founder and chief visionary of rAVe Publications, confers the awards annually to highlight his personal picks for the best of InfoComm and to recognize what he regards as each year's most promising new products. In making his announcement in rAVe, Kayye said, "PixelNet is not an evolutionary product--it's revolutionary. Jupiter has set a new bar with this!"
PixelNet's breakthrough technology is a fundamentally new way to capture, distribute, control, and display digital and analog video sources, making it easier and less expensive to design, build, and manage complex control rooms. With PixelNet, AV designers no longer need to cobble together complex and disparate tools to capture, distribute, control and display the range of digital and analog information found in most control rooms. PixelNet combines all of these functions in a single, eminently scalable system. This revolutionary new technology can display these varied inputs in a wide variety of applications, from very large display walls with multiple inputs and outputs to a single desktop. A significant improvement over current technology, PixelNet can be applied to fulfill requirements ranging from simple meeting room AV systems to complete building AV distribution and display, and everything in between.
Based on packet-switching technology, any video source can be shown on any display, as a window on a single display, or as a window spanning multiple display devices in a display wall. Any source can be shown at any size on any display or array of displays.
PixelNet is an all-digital system. Input and output signals can be either digital or analog, to meet the interface requirements of the attached devices. Inside the PixelNet domain, however, signals are always digital and can be transmitted long distances without degradation. All video processing is done in the digital domain, including cropping, scaling, de-interlacing and noise reduction.
Switching is entirely in the digital domain to preserve signal integrity and to provide pixel-by-pixel routing with built-in up and down-scaling so any rectangle of pixels from any source can be sent to any destination rectangle on any display device.
A modular and highly scalable system, the typical PixelNet installation is easily expanded by adding more input and output nodes and, if necessary, additional switching capacity.
PixelNet provides implicit format conversion. Signals captured as VGA, DVI, SDI, HD-SDI or HD component can be displayed on any DVI or VGA monitor or projector.
PixelNet is available through Jupiter's network of value-added resellers and is currently shipping. The first commercial installation of the product was completed in June 2008 at the new Starlight Casino and entertainment complex in British Columbia, Canada.
