Datapath launches SDI compatible display wall controller

Datapath has launched the SDI compatible Fx4-SDI display wall controller for multi-display videowall applications.

The unit offers a choice of SDI/DP/HDMI inputs and delivers 4K resolution at 60 fps through the DisplayPort input.

It is has designed to ingest a 4K 60 fps DisplayPort 1.2 signal from a media server and output that signal as four 3G-SDI HD signals. 

Each output monitor on the Datapath Fx4-SDI can take its input from any region of the input image. Cropping, scaling, rotation and frame-rate conversion is handled by the Fx4-SDI hardware. Regions can be overlapped to allow any output to replicate another, or be configured. Many non-rectangular screen arrangements, as well as any mix of monitor orientations are supported. 

Datapath updated its Wall Designer software to incorporate the Datapath Fx4-SDI for functions that include overlapping, mirroring and bezel-correction requirements. The software allows users to add displays from a database of monitors. Users can visualise content by adding inputs, adjusting display regions and programming all Datapath Fx4-SDI controllers via USB or the network ports.  

Datapath’s image capture technology will display a pre-loaded customisable image if the signal drops.

The Fx4-SDI offers four SDI outputs and the ability to loop multiple units together. It has dual Ethernet ports and only one unit in the chain requires connection to the physical LAN as Ethernet loop-through is supported on the second port.
