Fastest Bandwidth on the Market

Jupiter Systems's picture

Catalyst XL utilizes the latest PCIe technology to capture and display video sources with resolutions up to 4K. At speeds of 15.8 GB/s, PCIe Gen 3 x16 technology is the fastest bandwidth available. This technology is based on point-to-point topology to enable capture boards and CPUs to send their video data directly to the graphics board without the unnecessary step of going through system memory. PCIe bus supports full-duplex communication between any board for full frame rate transmission from source to display. Ultra-fast bandwidth increases the density of processing power, reducing the number of input/output boards and the overall hardware footprint.

2K, 4K, and 8K Capture Technology

Catalyst XL is available with a new four channel HDMI 4K input board, capable of ingesting resolutions up to 4K per input. Each port can function autonomously with the ability to transfer, crop and scale—or all four ports can be synchronized for 8K capture.

Purpose Built Hardware

For over 30 years, Jupiter by InFocus has been designing and manufacturing display wall processors, leveraging cutting edge technology to create hardware for the most demanding display wall installations. Catalyst XL includes new capture board technology that ingests sources with resolutions up to 4K and makes the data available over the PCIe bus. Next generation DMA technology, called DirectGMA, enables high speed data transfer from the capture board to one or more GPU boards. The GPU board is specifically designed to drive an arbitrary number of displays while maintaining frame synchronization across multiple boards, for bigger, more complex configurations.

End to End Collaboration with Canvas

Catalyst XL ships with Canvas, our award-winning suite of collaborative visualization software. Canvas provides 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 a CRS-4K system to a conference room.

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 either Active Directory or Workgroup environments, role-based security, and remote administration.

Canvas can be configured as a standalone display wall processor to drive any video wall display technology, or it can be connected into the Canvas ecosystem for enterprise-wide collaboration. Canvas standalone deployments are designed for customers with one video wall, who want to manage it remotely; Canvas enterprise deployments are meant for mission critical, 24/7 operations where uptime is essential. Catalyst XL ships as a Canvas standalone unit, but can be easily be upgraded for an enterprise deployment.

Windows 10 LTSB

Catalyst XL is built on Windows 10 LTSB, a specialized version of Windows 10 that offers the best of a Windows environment, including comprehensive security, while eliminating challenges associated with automatic updates. Windows 10 LTSB and Canvas continue to support Workgroup or Domain configurations to ensure flexible deployments—whether they are standalone video walls or connected to the corporate network.
