The core of the TVC series video wall controller is based on the latest, proven computer server technology developed by Hewlett Packard – an industry leader in reliable, industrial-grade servers. With the HP server as the backbone of your video wall control system, you will be confident that the performance, quality, reliability and support of your system is the best that it can be. And being a network-based server platform operating under Microsoft® Server 2003 operating system, it allows your software applications to run smoothly and seamlessly on the display wall. Specialised internal software and hardware enable the tiled video wall displays to respond as one single ultra-high resolution Windows® desktop. Within the desktop, software applications, external videos, external computer outputs, and client monitors may be displayed anywhere, any size – controlled at the wall and/or via networked remote clients.

The TVC-1110 is recommended for most 24/7 control room applications where a few video or RGB sources may be displayed. The TVC-1210 is recommended for 24/7 applications requiring highest quality multi-video performance and extremely fast RGB refresh performance.

Benefits

  • Accepts multiple external video, RGB and client desktops for display anywhere, any size on the display wall
  • Up to 16 real-time videos per display and ultrahigh quality video processing on the TVC-1210
  • Complete MASTERSuite™ wall management software included (eight languages supported)
  • Exclusive browser-based Christie software allows control and wall monitoring from remote clients without need to install external software – multiple operating systems supported
  • Extensive server health and diagnostics monitoring through software interface and via email
  • No additional site or seat licenses required
  • No annual software maintenance fees
  • Performance and redundancy options
  • Expandable, supporting very small to very large tiled wall displays
  • Excellent price/performance ratio
  • 2 year warranty

Switch fabric architecture

The TVC-1210 includes optional Switch-Fabric Architecture. This feature provides a significant increase of PCI bandwidth which is best realised when multiple RGB input sources are included in the system configuration. Multiple RGB input sources may be simultaneously displayed across the display wall with very high refresh performance.
