The Suite is designed for cost-efficient fault-tolerance while supporting unlimited resolution and overlapping boundaries in displays. Requiring no expensive proprietary hardware, the suite has the potential to significantly reduce the installation and operation costs of distributed dynamic visualization systems.
The What Else: The Hiperwall Premium Suite requires no specialized servers or switches for setup. This allows the user to reduce costs, installation complexity, and power consumption. The software features a simple user interface, allowing non-technical users to make adjustments as needed. The suite can also support ultra-high resolution images and videos in differing combinations, including images up to 1GB in size and streaming content.
The Premium Suite features fault tolerance, providing failsafe operation at a lower cost than previously available, increasing the reliability of installations. With unlimited resolution support, there is no hard-coded limit to the source resolution of user content. In addition, users can place content anywhere on local or remote video walls. Resizing, opacity, rotation, and shading control are all available through the GUI, and all adjustments appear in real time.
Released simultaneously with the Premium Suite, Hiperwall Core Suite is an entry-level system that most of the same capabilities as the Premium Suite. The key difference is that the Core Suite does not run two control points simultaneously, which is a key component of the Premium Suite’s fault-tolerance.
