InfoComm 2013: RGB Spectrum launches ‘any size, any configuration’ videowall processor13 June 2013
RGB Spectrum has debuted the new OmniWall Display Processor at InfoComm 2013. Described as “cost-effective yet powerful”, OmniWall is targeted at digital signage, command centres, control rooms, and other mission-critical venue applications.
“The OmniWall processor represents an entirely new approach to video wall processing,” said Jed Deame, vice president of marketing. “The processor is a flexible, scalable and powerful solution for any medium or large videowall application. With the ability to manage multiple walls from a single processor, and robust capabilities including HDCP compliance, the OmniWall processor’s impressive performance allows it to serve virtually any application.”
To set up a system, the user defines the wall configuration, window layouts and source routing. The OmniWall processor analyses incoming signals and automatically sends the proper scaling information – including bezel compensation – to each output.
OmniWall can manage multiple walls from a single processor or scale a single image across any number of displays. With a wide selection of modular fibre and copper input cards, it can accommodate virtually any digital or analogue video source, including DVI, HDMI, 3G/HD-SDI, RGB and component. it supports DVI resolutions up to 1,920 x 1,200 and 4K up to 4,096 x 2,160. All inputs can be simultaneously directed to any and all outputs on the wall. The OmniWall processor is HDCP compliant, allowing it to deliver content-protected HDMI signals and provide embedded audio passthrough.
OmniWall is available in two chassis options with different input/output configurations. The OmniWall 16 features 16 inputs and 16 outputs and is designed for up to 4×4 screen arrays, or linear configurations of up to 1×16 horizontal or vertical monitors. For larger video walls, the OmniWall 32 supports up to 32 inputs and 32 outputs. For even larger applications, multiple OmniWall processors can be connected in parallel without compromising performance.
