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.

Pn Warp Blend Node Back

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.
