LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jupiter Systems, the industry leader in visualization and collaboration solutions for display walls and networked PCs, announced its PixelNet® distributed display wall system will now offer a redundant server option as part of the latest version of its PixelNet Domain Control software.
“PixelNet already offers the industry’s highest level of reliability at the hardware level,” said Brady O. Bruce, VP of Marketing and Strategic Alliances, “and with this new version of the PixelNet Domain Control software, an organization can easily deploy a backup server that will take over automatically if a problem occurs with the main PDC server.”
“PixelNet is a natural for building the ever larger display wall systems required today in high-end applications,” added Bruce. “PixelNet is already well known as a fault-tolerant system, since a single node failure does not impair operation of the rest of the system. Now, with the redundant server option, the risk of system downtime is reduced to near zero. If your display wall is mission critical, PixelNet is the right choice.”
PixelNet® Distributed Display Wall System
PixelNet® continues to change the way people think about display wall processors. The distributed system uses a high-bandwidth dedicated packet-switched network to capture, distribute and display digital and analog video sources without compression. A PixelNet domain consists of any number of input channels and supports any number of outputs which can be arranged as multiple display walls and discrete monitors. Hundreds of inputs and outputs can be connected in a domain.
Using Jupiter’s non-blocking switch technology, any information source can be shown on any display, as a window on a single display, or as a window spanning multiple display devices in a display wall, and any source can be shown at any size on any display or array of displays.
Jupiter’s PixelNet distributed display wall systems can be found in applications around the world, from New Orleans to New Zealand, from Romania to China and beyond, and in a wide variety of industries including public transportation, traffic management, public utilities, security, defense, emergency operations, telecommunications, finance, education, government, and entertainment. Users and systems integrators appreciate the powerful, highly scalable distributed display wall system. Users can start with a single input and a single output and enjoy the certainty that they have purchased a system with the flexibility to expand to hundreds of inputs and outputs as their requirements evolve.
