Datapath launches HDR display processor at ISE 2020

Datapath has announced the release of its Fx4-HDR at the show, featuring HDR 10-bit colour clarity, 4K60 resolution and audio support.

The Fx4-HDR supports a choice of HDMI 2.0 and two additional 1.4 inputs, being HDCP2.2 capable and supporting a high bandwidth loop-through for daisy-chaining multiple processors and creating videowalls. 

The processor can take inputs from any region of the input canvas with cropping, scaling, rotation and frame-rate conversion handled by the Fx4-HDR’s hardware, allowing the regions to overlap and allow any output to replicate another or be configured to support creative splices of the source material. 

Nonrectangular screen arrangements are supported, with a mix of monitor orientations allowing users to create a multi-monitor canvas. 

Downscaling support on each output is included, allowing for each selected content region to be output and contained within an arbitrary area of the screen, with the remainder of the screen able to be filled with a user-defined flat colour. 

The Fx4-HDR also features dual Ethernet ports to allow users to add the device to networks, with one device in the chain requiring connection to the physical LAN due to Ethernet loop-through being supported on the second port, allowing additional devices to be connected. 

Datapath’s updated Wall Designer multi-screen design tool has also been incorporated into the display processor, allowing users to add displays from a database of monitors, visualising content by adding inputs and adjusting display regions as well as programming all devices via USB or the network ports.
