Power, Performance, and Affordability
The Jupiter C-Series is a cost-effective line of 4K display wall processors featuring the Canvas collaborative visualization software platform. Ideal for smaller installations, C-Series processors come fully pre-configured as stand-alone display wall processors with high-performance hardware that can decode up to 8 IP streams and support up to 10 direct video connections. C-Series processors can be used as a stand-alone solution driving a single video wall. The C-Series also ships with the award-winning Canvas collaborative visualization platform, automatically creating an enterprise-ready deployment that can be fully integrated with any other display wall processor or Canvas client.
4K Input & Output Support
The C-Series supports up to 4 non-HDCP 4K outputs on a single CPU Chassis. Each 4K display has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels per mini DisplayPort interface. Onboard software decoding can decode any IP stream up to 4K resolution. The C-Series is capable of ingesting up to 5 4K RGB direct capture inputs.
C-Series in Action
The C-Series processor is the ideal solution for small to medium size projects, supporting up to four 4K or eight 1080p displays. The 4 RU rack-mountable CPU Chassis has 6 PCI Express 3.0 slots, enabling very high bandwidth configurations. With software decoding, the C-Series can support up to 8 streaming HD inputs in one CPU Chassis. The processor is also valuable when users want to present content to an in-room audience outside of a Canvas session. With optional Dual-Link DVI Input Cards, up to 10 inputs are supported for display on the local display wall only. Inputs via the DVI connection are not shareable in Canvas.
Networked or Stand-Alone Solution
C-Series processors can be used as a stand-alone solution driving a single video wall, with other PC clients connected to the system so that operators can interact with the video wall. The system can also be integrated into a fully networked enterprise solution that is managed by the Canvas platform, enabling robust collaboration between video walls, operators, ancillary displays, and even mobile devices.
The processors ship with Windows 10 for easy deployment within any environment, and they run all applications directly on the processor to utilize the full pixel resolution of the video wall. Capable of ingesting video data from any IP encoded source, direct video connection, or Windows 10 ready application, a C-Series processor is an extremely powerful, yet affordable, controller for running intense graphic applications with built-in hardware redundancy for mission-critical applications.
Supports Canvas Standalone or Enterprise
Jupiter’s display wall management software, Canvas, can be deployed in two different ways. Canvas Standalone provides an object-based, easy to use interface. Objects such as DVI, RGB, HD, and video inputs, streaming video inputs, web browsers, image viewers, and local and remote application windows can be dragged and dropped anywhere on the display wall. Jupiter has a long history of providing industry-leading hardware for mission-critical 24/7 control rooms. Canvas can easily be upgraded to the enterprise version through a new software license and does not require any additional hardware.
Canvas Enterprise enables video, data, applications, and more to be shared with colleagues anywhere, on any device, delivering end-to-end collaboration. Users can share streams and collaborate from anywhere in the network: at the main display wall, on PCs, and on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Canvas brings a rich set of familiar tools for collaboration and allows annotation directly on live video streams. Object-level security allows managers to create discrete management and access permissions for wall segments, layouts, inputs, applications, and remote cursor control. User activity and event logging allow thorough forensic analysis.
Catalyst in Action
The Catalyst Processor from Jupiter Systems is the perfect solution for control room projects requiring high performance and reliability in a cost-effective, space-efficient platform.
A Catalyst Display Wall Processor incorporates all of the visual data sources found in a control room environment and displays them in movable, scalable windows on a virtual display comprised of multiple output devices: Direct View LED, LCD flat panels, plasma panels, projection cubes, or a rear-projection system.
Data sources can include local applications, remote network applications, remote network RGB streams, compressed network video streams, directly connected SD and HD video, VGA, and DVI inputs. All data sources are accessed from an intuitive and consistent software interface providing complete control of the virtual display surface.
