Fusion Catalyst™ 8000

The Fusion Catalyst™ 8000 is the fastest, most powerful display wall processor yet.

Users and industry pundits around the world have called the Fusion Cata­lyst product line the best-in-class since its introduction in 2010. The newest member of the family, the Fusion Catalyst 8000, is the best of the best.

With bandwidth that reaches 320 Gbps, the Fusion Catalyst 8000 delivers more high resolution windows(up to 2560x1600) at full frame rates and 32-bit color than any competitor. And with up to 80 slots, no project is too big. Featuring the award-winning performance and quality for which Jupiter is known, this is the solution for the most demanding projects. Hot-swappable input and output cards support the most demanding environments.

The Fusion Catalyst 8000 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 than anything in its class.

And with Dual Quad Core Xeons and Windows 7 onboard, you can run demanding applications such as SCADA directly on the video wall.

Abundant capacity and support for any device

Each 4RU rack-mountable Fusion Catalyst 8000 CPU can support up to 4 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 8000 can support up to 100 DVI, progressive scan component HD, or analog RGB inputs. Up to 400 video inputs can be accommodated using optional Octal SD Video Input Cards.

With optional Quad HD Decoder Cards, Fusion Cata­lyst 8000 can support up to 160 HD or SD streams in MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MJPEG, and H.264 formats. Most popular IP cameras and encoders are supported, as are desktop PC streams with real-time updates.

Optional CatalystLink™ cards support PixelNet® HD-SDI and DVI Input Nodes with remote KM capability.

Supports Canvas Collaborative Visualization

The Fusion Catalyst 8000 can be part of any Canvas system, delivering shared video and interaction with remote users on the display wall. With Canvas Client and Quad HD Cards installed, this powerful display wall processor brings all the same Canvas tools and features available to PC, smartphone and tablet users to the big screen.

Safeguard operations with Controlpoint Security™

Fusion Catalyst™ processors ship with ControlPoint Security™, airtight security tools indigenous to Jupiter’s ControlPoint™ wall management software suite.

ControlPoint Security features LDAP integration, pro­viding secure login with the standard user name and password controlled by the customer’s IT department.

With security defined at the object level, managers can create discrete management and access permissions for wall segments, layouts, inputs, applications, and remote cursor control. User activity and event logging are performed at sub-second resolution, allowing thorough forensic analysis.
