VuWall Unites Hundreds of Sources and Streamlines Workflow for SIMOS Control Center
VuWall, a technology leader in video wall control systems and unified visualization solutions, today announced that it provided the SIMOS control center for security and mobility in Stuttgart, Germany with the highest level of video wall control, management, and flexibility. The VuWall system, installed by Mevis.tv and specified by consultant Erben Engineering GmbH, is comprised of 12 VuScape controllers, two VuStream E240 encoders, and one VuWall Application Server — all managed by the company's award-winning TRx centralized video wall management platform. "There are many parts and pieces to deploying a video wall system for a project of this scale and complexity," said Hans-Joachim Spies, Founder and Managing Director at Mevis.tv. "As an integrator, it's paramount that everything works together seamlessly. VuWall's ecosystem exceeded our high standards not only for performance, but also for scalability, flexibility, and interoperability. It dramatically reduced our integration time and eliminated any concern about compatibility between the various products within the AV and IP infrastructure. It's an exceptional system for an exceptional project." SIMOS houses two independent control centers — the integrated control center (ILS) and the integrated traffic control center (IVLZ). The ILS provides around-the-clock operation and support for incoming emergency calls for the fire brigade and German Red Cross. IVLZ is responsible for monitoring all of the city's traffic and tunnel surveillance cameras, as well as the electronic traffic display systems on the main roads, which are overseen by four dispatchers from the office for public order, civil engineering office, the Stuttgart tram, and the police. For this project, Mevis.tv installed two video walls for each of the control centers: The ILS is equipped with a video wall comprised of 48 Barco UniSee 55" LCD displays, and the IVLZ control room video wall is made up of 14 Barco UniSee 55" displays. In addition, there are eight displays installed across two crisis meeting rooms that need access to the same sources. Although all these rooms are distinct, the VuWall system provided the organizations with a single, IP-based video wall processing and management system that connects them with a virtual infrastructure. VuWall's high-performance video wall processor and VuStream encoders ensure high-quality video stream distribution across the network with low latency and high performance for up to 4:4:4 of 4K video streams. The Application Server provides quick access to websites, dashboards, and applications from a single, centralized source with the necessary security and without overburdening the network. All these appliances are managed by the TRx centralized video wall management platform, enabling SIMOS operators to easily control and distribute visual information and data to any display or video wall on the network. TRx is unique in combining AV-over-IP distribution and advanced multi-video wall and KVM management. It's engineered to be robust enough for multi-room distribution projects such as SIMOS. The centralized platform ensures intuitive configuration, management, and distribution of virtually any source type to any display without any programming. Its simple drag-and-drop capability also saves time for integrators and operators alike. Mevis.tv also benefitted from TRx's API, which integrates with the organization's Crestron building control system. "We are so proud to see that SIMOS is leveraging the modularity, ease-of-use, and reliability we've built into our ecosystem, fulfilling their objectives with this incredible project," said Eric Hénique, Executive Vice President of International Sales at VuWall. "Operators can see exactly what they need when they need it on the display of their choosing while providing the redundancy and low latency that control rooms demand. Plus, it all works seamlessly within their existing workflow for the most effective distribution of visual information." Learn more about VuWall and its full line of solutions at vuwall.com
Now Shipping: Matrox LUMA Graphics Cards With Intel Arc GPUs
Technology innovator Matrox® Video today announced that its Matrox LUMA Series graphics cards with Intel Arc GPUs are now shipping. Previewed at major trade shows throughout the year, Matrox LUMA cards are engineered to power digital signage and video wall systems in both the mainstream and pro AV graphics markets. The range satisfies significant demand for driving multiple screens and ever-increasing pixel counts, with a balance between size, reliability, and performance for different applications. Available now are three LUMA cards in the mainstream graphics line: The half-height LUMA A310, the only modern, low-profile fanless card. It is ideal for small-form-factor players in areas where quiet operation is a must. The single-slot, low-profile LUMA A310F card for applications requiring more performance, such as driving multimonitor graphics in retail spaces. The full-sized, single-slot LUMA A380 card for even more performance and GDDR6 (6 GB versus 4 GB) than the other LUMA models. All three of those LUMA cards have four outputs and can drive four 5K60 monitors. (All three can also drive up to 8K60 or 5K/120 displays but are limited to two outputs when doing so.) For the pro AV market, there are two LUMA Pro cards: the low-profile LUMA A310FP and the standard-height LUMA A380P. They offer the ultimate display flexibility, supporting up to two 8Kp60, two 5Kp120, or four 5Kp60 DisplayPort 2.1 monitors. They can also be combined to drive a high-density-output video wall of up to 16 synchronized 5Kp60 displays. Users can easily add — and synchronize — displays by frame-locking up to four LUMA Pro cards via board-to-board frame-lock cables. LUMA Pro cards also feature state-of-the-art GPU-based H.264 and H.265 media codec engines, setting a benchmark in their class. These engines are backed by the comprehensive Matrox Mura software libraries, enabling the decoding of over 40 full-HD streams per card.
