Orad, a provider of real-time 3D broadcast graphic, video server and media asset management solutions, is set to unveil the latest version of PowerWall, its video wall system.
PowerWall can generate eight genlocked 1080P (3G) or 16 high-definition 1080i serial digital interface signals tiled across the video wall based on the required shape and size, Orad says. In addition, multiple output options allow the HDVG4 to closely match the resolution and aspect ratio of the video wall.
PowerWall resolutions range from 3840×1080 for the 2×1 video wall configurations, 7680×2160 for 4×2, and a staggering 15360×2160 in the 8×2 arrangement, all from a single HDVG4, Orad says. Support for high resolutions enables broadcasters to zoom in on content without it becoming pixilated, the company adds. The HDVG4 platform can accept up to eight HD or eight standard definition live-video insertions, as well as video clips wrapped in industry-standard formats.
Videos can be mapped to different graphical elements on the video wall, with all video elements becoming an integral part of the templates and do not need to be overlaid as “picture-in-picture” objects, Orad says. Generated from a single box, all graphical elements including tickers, videos and animated items remain synchronized across the whole video wall, with no tearing visible on any sections of the output.
The PowerWall configurator tool lets users easily adjust the properties of the video signal without having access to the engineering controls on the video wall. Users can adjust the size, position, edges and color balance of the whole wall or individual signals directly from the control PC.
