Jupiter Systems Enhancements to Award Winning PixelNet Display Wall System

New Capabilities Deliver Audio, Video Sources on Multiple Displays in
Multiple Locations From Single Control Point

(BUSINESS WIRE)-Jupiter Systems, the industry leader in display wall technology, today
announced the introduction of enhancements to its award winning
PixelNet® distributed display wall system. These improvements include
the PixelNet Audio output node, the PixelNet Quad SD video input node,
full support of the 3G-SDI standard, a window borders and titles
feature, integration of streaming video sources, and support for
multiple walls – in multiple locations — from a single PixelNet domain.

“With the introduction of these new capabilities,” said John Stark,
Director of Product Management and Technical Services at Jupiter,
“Jupiter makes good on the promise of its PixelNet technology to provide
a comprehensive, integrated, and seamless platform for AV control. The
enhanced system offers all of the benefits of the PixelNet approach —
scalability, flexibility, 24×7 reliability, and low cost of installation
and maintenance – and it enables Jupiter to provide all the capabilities
demanded by users in security, government, defense, transportation,
utilities, corporate management, entertainment, healthcare, and

PixelNet Audio Output Node

The new PixelNet Audio output node receives audio associated with video
data captured at audio-capable PixelNet input nodes (the SDI and Analog
HD input nodes) to one or more audio output nodes. Audio configurations
are saved as part of PixelNet Domain Control layouts and are
automatically recalled when the associated layout is selected.
High-quality digital audio can be captured and transmitted end-to-end,
including multi-channel encoded formats. Unlike other solutions,
PixelNet users will be able to both see and hear a source, managing the
two capabilities through a single drag-and-drop interface.

PixelNet Quad SD Input Node

The new PixelNet Quad-SD input node handles four composite video inputs
or two S-video inputs, and can drive up to eight PixelNet windows
simultaneously. With its low cost per port, the PixelNet Quad-SD node
provides a solution that is ideal for many applications, especially
video-intensive security monitoring.

Enhanced HD SDI Input Node With 3G-SDI Support

The HD SDI input node has been enhanced with full support of the 3G-SDI
standard (SMPTE 424M) at 2.970 Gigabits per second. The extended bit
rate can provide 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second.

Multiple Wall Support

With PixelNet, it is now possible to manage many displays in multiple
locations, and to control them independently of each other. This new
feature expands the boundaries of any given PixelNet domain and can
include many walls. No longer confined to a single display wall, content
can now be presented in more than one place on a variety of display

Window Borders and Titles
PixelNet users are now able to select colored borders to surround any
window on the display wall, and can add labels to the borders via an
easy-to-use text editor. Users can save and instantly recall any layout
of windows on the wall, including the borders and titles.

Streaming Video System 8D
The new capabilities also include Jupiter’s Streaming Video
System 8D (SVS-8D), a hardware-based solution for decoding and
displaying hundreds of digital video streams in a single PixelNet
domain. The SVS-8D supports a broad range of camera, DVR, and encoder
vendors with mixed transport and encoding methods. These include MPEG-1,
MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264 and VC-1. The new system supports unicast and
multicast streams, as well as the RTCP, RTSP, SAP, and RTP protocols.

“The Streaming Video System 8D builds on Jupiter’s vast experience in
delivering command and control visualization systems and addresses the
need for an economical and flexible method of decoding digital video
found in heterogeneous environments,” said Stark. “No other solution
offers the flexibility of simultaneously supporting so many video
decoding standards.”
