Catalyst 4K

4K Display Wall Processor with Canvas

Create the world’s highest resolution video wall with 4K resolution on every display.

Get razor-sharp 4K resolution on every display in your video wall with the highly evolved Catalyst 4K processor. Faster graphics, real time frame rates, and better overall system performance than anything in its class is delivered thanks to its Intel E5 14-Core Xeon CPU-based platform with a PCI Express 3.0 chassis and 6 powerful, high speed slots. Featuring bandwidth that reaches 336 Gbps, Catalyst 4K delivers high resolution and high frame rate performance at 4K resolution.

Drag and drop video and data windows anywhere on the display wall, juxtapose sources in order to get a full 360-degree view of operations, and save and recall layouts appropriate for specific situations, users, or time of day.

Catalyst 4K ships with Canvas, our award-winning collaborative visualization suite.

4K Input and Output Support

Capable of decoding up to 20 4K signals, Catalyst 4K supports input signals with a 4K DVI input card that leverages a DVI-D dual-link connector. Catalyst 4K supports up to 12 HDCP 4K outputs on a single CPU chassis. Each 4K display has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels per output through a mini DisplayPort interface. Add up to four Expansion Chassis, each with 7 slots, to gain even more inputs.

Built for Canvas

The Catalyst 4K display wall processor ships with Canvas, providing access to all of the visual business intelligence made available in the user’s network—including live streams from network cameras and mobile devices, application screens from PCs, and real-time data feeds. Remote colleagues can see, share, and collaborate using the same live information in a highly secure environment no matter what device they have in front of them. Additional users are enabled simply by deploying additional Canvas clients on PCs, smartphones, tablets, or by adding Canvas Touch or CRS-4K systems to conference rooms.

With Canvas, users can annotate directly on live video streams, chat by text or voice, and collaborate on documents in real time. Canvas includes software decoding of IP video streams (including 4K), as well as support for user authentication in Active Directory or Workgroup environments.

Native 4K Decoding

Catalyst 4K offers CPU-based decoding on both H.264 and H.265 HD and 4K sources.

Catalyst 4K supports decoding up to:

  • 12 HD streams or 3 4K streams from H.264 sources
  • 8 HD streams with low bitrate from H.265 sources
  • 8-bit 4K streams from H.265 sources

Catalyst 4K in Action

The Catalyst 4K processor is the ideal solution for projects of any size. Each 4RU rack-mountable CPU Chassis has 6 PCI Express 3.0 slots while each of up to 4 expansion chassis has 7 PCI Express 2.0 slots, enabling very large configurations.

Catalyst 4K supports up to 12 4K displays or 32 HD displays, which can showcase up to 56 HD sources. With optional Quad HD Decoder Cards, Catalyst 4K can support up to 132 streaming HD inputs in one CPU Chassis plus four Expansion Chassis.

The Catalyst 4K processor is also valuable when users want to present content to an in-room audience outside of a Canvas session. Optional Dual-Link DVI Input Cards support up to 56 inputs for display on the local display wall only. Inputs via the DVI connection are not shareable in Canvas.
