Amsterdam RAI, NL– at Integrated Systems Europe 2012 – January 31, 2011.  Jupiter Systems (, the industry leader in display wall technology, announced that it is now shipping its powerful, new Fusion Catalyst 8000, the most advanced display wall processors available today. 
“Fusion Catalyst 8000 ushers in a new standard of performance, flexibility and quality for all types of display wall projects,” said Brady O. Bruce, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Alliances, at Jupiter Systems. “It delivers more power, more speed, and extended capability to handle the wide range of display wall projects that are being built today.”
The Fusion Catalyst 8000 offers superior performance, video quality, and reliability in a uniquely cost-effective, hot swappable, space-efficient platform that is the ideal solution for network operations centers, public utility control centers, intelligent traffic management centers, civil and military surveillance systems, public safety operations and any other application requiring large area display.
High Performance and High Capacity
Fusion Catalyst 8000 delivers superior performance with bandwidth that reaches 320 Gbps delivering more high resolution windows at full frame rates than any other product on the market today, along with the performance and quality Jupiter is known for. The new display wall processor features Second Generation PCI Express slots and a true, non-blocking Switch Fabric communication infrastructure. It provides more expandability, faster graphics, real time HD/SD/DVI/RGB frame rates, and better overall system performance.
Each 4RU rack-mountable Fusion Catalyst 8000 CPU Chassis can support up to four Fusion Catalyst 8000 Switch Fabric Chassis for a total of 80 PCI Express 2.0 4-lane slots. At a full 80 slots, the Fusion Catalyst 8000 can support up to 120 outputs at 2560x1600 pixels at 32 bits. Each Dual DVI-I Output Card has 256MB of onboard graphics memory for flawless image quality.
With optional Dual-Link DVI-I Input Cards, Fusion Catalyst can support up to 100 DVI, progressive scan component HD, or analog RGB inputs. Up to 400 SD video inputs can be accommodated using optional Octal SD Video Input Cards.
The optional Quad HD Decoder Card delivers pixel perfect streams and lots of them: Up to 160 HD or SD streams in MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MJPEG, and H.264 formats. Most popular encoders and cameras are supported, as are desktop PC streams with real-time updates.
Optional CatalystLink cards support PixelNet inputs to handle signals such as SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI.
Uniquely Engineered for Display Walls
Jupiter Systems designs all its own software and hardware as an integrated whole, creating a tightly woven system architecture that provides the best functionality and achieves the highest possible performance. This provides Jupiter with the deep system knowledge that no integrator of 3rd party off-the-shelf components can claim.
Fusion Catalyst 8000 is designed for continuous 24/7 operation. Redundant power supplies, fans, drives, and all input and output cards are hot-swappable. Jupiter’s ControlPoint software provides drag-and-drop simplicity for wall management, as well as advanced login, authentication, and other security features.
Jupiter is the pioneer in display wall processors with a track record of innovation and leadership extending over two decades. There are thousands of Jupiter display wall installations in more than 50 countries, ranging from purpose-built, centralized command and control centers using Fusion Catalyst processors to scalable, distributed PixelNet systems.
