The Fusion Catalyst processors from Jupiter Systems provide a space saving appliance for operating high performance video display walls
Video Display Wall Processors For Control Centres
Jupiter Systems has introduced the most advanced display wall processors available with its new Fusion Catalyst product family. Fusion Catalyst processors offer superior performance, video quality, configuration space and reliability in uniquely cost-effective, space-efficient platforms and are the ideal solution for network operations centres, public utility control centres, intelligent traffic management centres, civil and military surveillance systems, public safety operations and any other application requiring large area display.

"Fusion Catalyst ushers in a new era of performance and flexibility for all types of display wall projects. We designed the new product line with our customers in mind, delivering more power, more speed, and extended capability to handle the wide variety of display wall projects that are being built today," said Brady Bruce, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Alliances, at Jupiter Systems.

Fusion Catalyst delivers superior performance with up to 192 Gbps of internal bandwidth that can carry a vast number and variety of video signals, and drive ultra-high resolution displays. It offers an extraordinary range of flexibility and can handle up to 376 analog or streaming SD video inputs, up to 94 DVI/VGA or HD component video inputs, and up to 96 graphic outputs, all controlled by a powerful drag-and-drop user interface. This immense configuration space is unique in the industry, moreover, Fusion Catalyst is the only processor to handle dual-link DVI (up to 2560x1600 resolution) on both input and output. In addition, Fusion Catalyst offers the reliable 24/7 system availability and hot swappable components that Jupiter pioneered and its customers have come to expect.

Fusion Catalyst sets a new industry standard with an extremely broad configuration space, high performance and stunning video quality, yet it does so at a new, lower price point. It runs the same powerful, feature-rich ControlPoint software, which means drop-in compatibility and no new training requirements. As a result, customers with existing Fusion installations can upgrade easily to all the benefits of Fusion Catalyst.

The Fusion Catalyst product family includes the Fusion Catalyst 1000 and 4000 models.

The Fusion Catalyst 4000 is built on the speedy PCI Express 2.0 architecture and provides 16 4-lane slots, each with 16 Gbps of non-blocking bandwidth. Up to two Fusion Catalyst Expansion Chassis can be added to the 4000 model, bringing the total number of slots to 48.

The Fusion Catalyst 1000 provides 10 4-lane slots, each with 16 Gbps of non-blocking bandwidth.

Applications can be run directly on the Fusion Catalyst processor for display locally on the display wall. Hundreds of small windows can be opened and spread across any portion of the wall. Alternately, a large window can be created allowing an application to occupy every pixel on the wall. Both models run the Windows Vista Business 64-bit operating system and feature advanced Intel CPUs. The Fusion Catalyst 4000 provides dual Quad Core Xeons running at 2.0 GHz, 8 GB of RAM, and two 320 GB hard drives in a RAID 1 array. (Additional RAM up to 64 GB and a third hard drive are available options for the Fusion Catalyst 4000.) The Fusion Catalyst 1000 ships with a Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB of RAM, and a single 320 GB hard drive. An upgrade to the Windows 7 OS will be offered for both models when Windows 7 Service Pack 1 becomes available.

With the addition of the new Jupiter SVS-8 Streaming Video System, Fusion Catalyst can display up to 376 video streams in MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264 and MJPEG encoding standards. The new SVS-8 can decode multiple encoding formats simultaneously, which means dozens of network-streamed videos can be displayed at once at full-frame rate with digital precision.

The addition of CatalystLink cards allows for integration with Jupiter's PixelNet systems. PixelNet is Jupiter's revolutionary line of distributed high-performance processors. Designed for scalability and flexibility, PixelNet makes creating complex topologies of inputs and outputs simple, cost effective and future proof. With CatalystLink cards, PixelNet sources (notably the broadcast industry's SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI standards) can be displayed on the Fusion Catalyst-based display wall, as well as on ancillary PixelNet displays.

Jupiter is the pioneer in display wall processors with an 18-year track record of innovation and leadership. There are thousands of Jupiter display wall installations in more than 50 countries, ranging from purpose-built, centralized command and control centers using Fusion processors to scalable, distributed PixelNet systems.
