Jupiter PixelNet

A better way to get visual information where you need it. PixelNet®adopts Gigabit Ethernet technology to create a network of input and output nodes to drive high resolution, real time video walls.

A broad variety of PixelNet® input nodes can be matched to almost any video source, while PixelNet® output nodes connect to displays. Connected via CAT-6 cables, input and output nodes can be located as far as 100 meters from the switch. Using packet-switching technology, any information source can be shown on any display, such as a window on a single display, or as a window spanning multiple displays in a display wall.

PixelNet® makes creating complex topologies of inputs, outputs and switches simple, cost effective, and future proof. Massively scalable, the same component parts can scale from a single input distributed to a single output to hundreds of inputs and outputs. PixelNet® input nodes are small, silent and use very little power. PixelNet® Domain Control software provides an intuitive, object-oriented, drag-and-drop interface to control and manage multiple inputs, outputs and display walls.

Flexible, Scable, Powerful.

PixelNet® is all about scalability. The same component parts can scale from a single input distributed to a single output to a configuration with hundreds of inputs and outputs. The networked system can support multiple display walls. Need to add another input? Add another PixelNet® input node. Want to add more streaming IP sources? Add another StreamCenter. Expanding the display wall? Add PixelNet® output nodes for the new displays.

PixelNet® Warp/Blend Node™
Essential for projector-driven video walls

The Warp/Blend Node™ from Jupiter Systems is the advanced edge-blend and warp solution for the award-winning PixelNet® Distributed Display Wall System. The Warp/Blend Node is the same space-saving size and shape as other PixelNet® nodes and extends the functionality, power, and ease of use for which PixelNet® has become well known. Supporting arrays of up to 50 projectors, it provides warping and edge-blending capabilities to front-projection or rear-projection display walls in an easily scalable way.

The Warp/Blend Node opens PixelNet® to a variety of new applications using projectors, including simulation, training, and scientific visualization and provides seamless display screens for command and control, boardroom, and digital signage installations.

The Warp/Blend Node supports both warp/edge-blended display walls and non-warp/edge-blended display walls in the same PixelNet® Domain. For example, a 2x1 boardroom projection screen and ancillary LCD screens can be supported in the same PixelNetDomain.

Utilizing revolutionary, patent-pending technology from Jupiter Systems, all signalling and communications between the Warp/Blend Node and its associated PixelNet® TeamMate Output Node are conducted within the single DVI cable linking the two devices.

The Warp/Blend Node is tightly integrated with PixelNet® Domain Control (PDC) software, providing simple setup and control. The user interface and mapping tools are both intuitive and easy to use, allowing users to align complex multi-channel installations with ease.

The Warp/Blend Node supports EasyBlend™ software from Scalable Displays for easy camera-based auto-calibration of edge-blending and warping.
