New VSN972 and VSN1172 models targeted at security, military, utilities, airport and traffic management environments 

Datapath, self proclaimed ‘world-leading engineers of visual solutions’, are now shipping their new and improved VSN982 and VSN1182 next-generation video wall controllers.

The latest controllers have seen a number of upgrades to the VSN972 and VSN1172 models, which were introduced earlier this year.

The new VSN controllers, so says Datapath, deliver greater efficiency than the previous-generation product, with more power, improved cooling and quieter than ever before. The scalability of the controllers makes them suitable for a wide variety of markets, including; security, military, utilities, airport and traffic management.

Ben Dale, product manager for Datapath, said: “These latest additions to our VSN series mean these powerful and versatile controllers can run at optimum efficiency with no cooling concerns – important to a stable, reliable system and vital in 24/7 command and control environments.”

The VSN series features switched fabric technology which ensures that each Gen3 PCIe slot in the backplane can deliver high-resolution bandwidth from a range of capture cards to multiple outputs. Datapath latest controllers can also be supplied with either 240GB or 480GB SSD drives that provide a much quicker, quieter performance over traditional hard-disk drives. Modifications to the chassis design also help improve airflow, which again serves to reduce temperature, fan noise and ensure rock-solid reliability.

The VSN982 is available now as a 9-slot system, with the VSN1182 as an 11-slot system – both with a powerful single Xeon processor, 32GB of RAM, dual SSD drives and an RPSU power supply.
