RGB Spectrum's Infocomm 2010 Wrap-up

RGB Spectrum's Infocomm 2010 Wrap-up

We'd like to thank the more than 2500 people who stopped by our booth to see our outstanding lineup of integrated solutions including wall processors, multiviewers, switchers, and codecs at Infocomm 2010 in Las Vegas, NV, June 9-11, 2010. We showcased applications for presentation rooms, control centers, medical environments, large venue signage and military applications.

Among the new and enhanced products that we demonstrated were:

Linx™ CrossXFormat™ Switchers & the New Linx Prime - Fully customizable with new inputs and outputs

The Linx switcher family got a lot bigger with the addition of the fully customizable and HDCP compliant Linx Prime. Available in sizes up to 8x8, 16x16 and 32x32, users of Linx Prime get the benefit of being able to select configurations that perfectly match their needs by choosing from a total of seven I/O card types.

The updated HDCP compliant Linx DVI and Linx CrossXFormat models use the same modular input, output and processor cards, but now offer more powerful, quick-change, hot-swappable power supplies. The industry-leading CrossXFormat versions accept DVI, HDMI, RGB or YUV on every input. Outputs are DVI. Options for dual-link DVI inputs and outputs are also available. Any configuration from 2x32 to 32x2 can be specified.

QuadView® HDx and QuadView HDxv - Increased power at a reduced price

The QuadView® HDx offers the most powerful image processing available in a compact multiviewer, with outstanding image quality, plus web-based control, dynamic window sizing, borders and titling, smooth zoom/pans and more. It is ideal for any application requiring display of multiple images on a monitor or projector. The QuadView HDx accepts high resolution DVI, RGB, and HD, and optionally, S-Video, component and NTSC/PAL composite video signals, any four of which can be displayed simultaneously. It produces the highest quality graphics and HD rendition, with state-of-the-art deinterlacing and scaling. Picture quality sets a new standard for the industry. Furthermore, the Quad View HDx line supports real-time, dynamic movement and resizing of windows. Each input can be scaled and positioned anywhere on the screen, as well as panned and zoomed to emphasize areas of interest. Display alternatives are virtually infinite, and include quad split, side-by-side, picture-in-picture, and overlapping windows.

MultiPoint KvM™ Display processor management for the modern control room

RGB Spectrum's MultiPoint KvM™ is designed to significantly improve control room personnels' ability to display, manipulate, and act on information. It is the only display processor management solution fully addressing the needs of control rooms in a variety of industries, including utilities, transportation, military, and government. MultiPoint KvM offers HD resolution at full frame rates, making it ideal for high-end, real-time display processing. The solution can be deployed in combination with any of RGB Spectrum's multiviewer or video wall display processors, including the MediaWall, SuperView, and QuadView lines, thus providing an integrated display solution. Navigation is simple. RGB Spectrum's KlickSimple™ technology allows users to "KVM" into another computer by dragging the mouse cursor to the associated monitor. Routes and user profiles are easily configurable and accessible via a custom user interface. MultiPoint KvM offers advanced features, such as collaboration, user access hierarchy, AES 128 encryption, LDAP compatibility, access control, single-strand fiber extenders, and event logging.

As part of the system, RGB Spectrum also rolled out the EDA 100, a compact device that functions as a KVM emulator, converting KVM control signals sent via Ethernet to USB or PS/2, and passing the simulated keyboard and mouse events to the client computer. With the EDA 100 there is no need for client software or emulators on controlled computers. Designed with the stringent security requirements of government and military organization in mind, it is suitable for use in any control room.

MediaWall® Processors Making large display walls easy

With the addition of HDCP support to the MediaWall product line, secure digital content can be displayed on a multi-screen array. RGB Spectrum is the first company to supply this key feature to the market. Additionally, with the new release of MediaWall DUO, up to 60 sources can be displayed on up to 24 displays. The new HD/3G-SDI input card for MediaWall further expands capabilities to include cameras used in broadcast and medical applications. With these enhancements and additions to the product line, the new MediaWall 4200, 4500 and SuperView 500 lead the pack in versatility, power and value.

H.264 IP Video & Graphics Codecs Advanced H.264 compression provides an unmatched combination of image quality and performance

DSx™ codecs demonstrated security applications by compositing four IP camera streams into a single display. The codecs were also used to demonstrate remote monitoring of video walls and multiviewers which is a perfect management feature for operations centers of all kinds. All of the DSx codecs use H.264 high profile compression technology to optimize image quality with maximum bandwidth efficiency. The DSx SD/HD codec encodes and streams either a single channel of high definition HD 1080p video or two NTSC/PAL video channels simultaneously at up to 30 frames per second each. The DSx 200 codec encodes graphics at 1280 x 1024 resolution or HD video at 1080p, 1080i, or 720p and streams out at 30 fps. Both codec models can be used as either encoders or decoders. As a decoder, the DSx SD/HD can display one HD stream or up to four SD streams in a quad image.
