Black Box launches new future-proof  ‘Radian Flex’ video wall platform

100 per cent software solution can be updated at any time, removing potentially costly hardware upgrades

Black Box, an industry-leading provider of audio visual (AV) technology, has introduced its Radian Flex Video Wall Platform – a 100 per cent software based video wall platform advancement designed to help future-proofs investments.

It is infinitely upgradable, and unlike hardware-based solutions, it offers unlimited resolution and screen outputs. 

“Many of our customers employ proprietary, hardware-based video wall technology that requires them to think about when they will inevitably have to purchase and install new hardware to meet ever-changing standards in resolution and picture quality,” said Josh Whitney, senior vice president — technology product solutions business at Black Box. “As a 100-percent software-based video wall solution, Radian Flex eliminates the need to replace purpose-built hardware with a simple, cost-effective and future-proof solution. This enables our customers to upgrade or scale their video wall technology more economically, reliably, and faster.”

The robust Radian Flex video engine supports today’s standard of 4K 60fps video up to an industry-leading resolution of more than one billion pixels. But it does not stop at 4K. Radian Flex boasts limitless resolution. This means that when 8K resolution becomes the standard, Radian Flex is ready; and when the next ultra-high-definition resolution comes out after 8K, Radian Flex provides a simple path to upgrade. 

To further future-proof the enterprise, there is no limit on the number of screens and end points that Radian Flex can display to. The solution also supports an unlimited number of inputs. Radian Flex also includes SmartFrame technology that ensures optimal use of the video wall display area. This feature provides perfect picture quality and fit to screen with minimal setup time. Other key features of Radian Flex include powerful content manipulation, schedule and restore capabilities, real-time control over displayed content, slide show, and more.

Whitney added: “Whether an industry depends on a command and control center, or they need unmatched picture quality for clear, crisp digital signage to get their message and brand across, Radian Flex takes a large step forward in helping customers prepare for the future.”
