Hiperwal announced version 8.0 of its powerful, hardware-agnostic video wall control software. One of the most value-adding upgrades to the company’s software to date, Hiperwall 8.0 unlocks extremely powerful features that improve content integrity, system performance and content sharing.
Aimed at control rooms, HiperZones, a new feature of Version 8.0, allows video wall administrators to maintain integrity of displayed content by reducing the possibility of unwanted interference by users. HiperZones provides admins the ability to define multiple access-controlled zones on a single video wall — turning one video wall into a group of several smaller video wall regions. This feature is ideal for maintaining order within a control room, especially during mission-critical operations, as it enables only designated operators to access, share content to and manipulate their assigned zone of the video wall. Combined with a HiperOperator license, a user can remotely access and share content to their assigned zone from any Windows PC or tablet. Admins with full permissions can access all regions, move objects between them, and take over the entire wall when necessary.
Hiperwall Version 8.0 also adds HiperCast Pull, a solution that simplifies HiperCast configurations (HiperCast connects Hiperwall video wall systems no matter where they are in the world), making it capable of sharing content between an organization’s various Hiperwall-powered video walls, without any network or server changes. Users will now find a “HiperCast Pull” button at the bottom of the sources tab. Clicking this button brings up a menu of in-network video walls to connect to, and once connected users can select which sources they require from all available sources, reducing the clutter of unnecessary content sources in the sources tab.
The new HiperSource Streamer+ technology helps video wall users maximize the visualization capabilities of Hiperwall Certified HiperView PCs from Seneca, and modern UHD displays now support seamless output of 4K content at 60 frames per second. Because of the upgraded foundational technology that HiperSource Streamer+ is based on, content streams are more efficient than ever, allowing Hiperwall video walls to support more concurrent content streams from a single HiperSource Streamer PC.
Version 8.0 also rings in HiperView+, a no-cost license upgrade for customers with HiperView PCs equipped with NVIDIA graphics cards. Based on HiperView Quantum technology, the same technology Hiperwall developed for seamless DV-LED video performance across multiple video wall controllers, HiperView+ delivers high-performance content drawing and synchronized video decoding that enhances HiperView PC performance and video playback capabilities. Support for Intel-based graphics is in development.
