TAMPA, FL, August 24, 2011 – Jupiter Systems, the industry leader in display wall technology, announced that it was now shipping its new Quad HD Decoder Card for both the Fusion Catalyst™ and VizionPlus II™ Display Wall Processor product lines.  The optional Quad HD Decoder Card provides support for the display of up to 200 HD or SD network video streams in MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and MJPEG formats. The card also supports streams from PCs, with real-time updates. Using Jupiter scaling and communication technology, dozens of streamed sources can be displayed at full frame rate, simultaneously, with digital precision throughout. The Quad HD Decoder Card supports most popular IP cameras and encoders.
The Quad HD Decoder card is the fourth generation of streaming video decoding products from Jupiter Systems. The card installs directly into both Fusion Catalyst and VizionPlus II display wall processors, offering Second Generation PCI Express performance and tight integration with Jupiter’s industry-leading ControlPoint software.
The Quad HD Decoder Card has four independent decoder SoCs (system on chip), each of which can handle streams from a variety of formats and source types. Supporting streams in MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264 and MJPEG, the Quad HD Decoder card can decode and display streams from IP cameras, NVRs, desktop encoders, and video management systems. Supported source resolutions range from NTSC and PAL to full high definition 1080p. Each decoder SoC has its own Gigabit Ethernet network connection, ensuring sufficient bandwidth to each decoder to handle any stream bandwidth up to 20 Mbps with ease. Each decoder simultaneously supports all stream formats and protocols, avoiding the need to set up decoders for specific stream types.
Stream and decoder management software, a component of the ControlPoint software suite, ensures that in the event of a decoder or network failure, routing of streams to available resources is done quickly and automatically. Setting up streams is simple and intuitive, with ControlPoint’s drag-and-drop graphical user interface. Quad HD Decoder windows can be scaled from postage stamp size to the size of the full wall, while maintaining true, real time update rates and perfect visual performance.
