Infotech Lead America: Jupiter Systems announced high infrastructure sales in 2013 of its Fusion and PixelNet display wall processors in China.
Jupiter display wall systems have been installed at the State Grid Corporation of China. Jupiter Systems has also sold display wall systems to many of the State Grid Corporation’s subsidiaries, including the Shanghai Municipal Electric Power, Jiangsu Provincial Electric and Power, Liaoning Electric Power, Hubei Electric Power, Hunan Province Electric Power, Qinghai Province Electric Power and Gansu Electric Power and the Control Center of the State Grid.
Jupiter installations can also be found in many other industries throughout China, such as Liaoning Provincial Expressway Administration and Guangdong Traffic Group, Shenzhen Bay Port, Shanghai Administration of Customers, Shenzhen Marine BureaU, Yima Coal Mine, Henan Province and Pingdingshan Coal Mining Group, Daqing Oil Management Bureau, Inner Mongolia Yitai Group, China Mobile International Port, Shanghai Meteorological Bureau, Yangpu Public Security, Changsha Emergency Command Center and Shenzhen Binhai Hospital.
Jupiter’s installation at the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau tower provides weather forecasts, emergency command, storm and atmosphere warnings, and other weather alerts for conditions likely to cause floods or fires, or otherwise endanger lives or property.
The Shanghai Meteorological Bureau uses Jupiter’s patented PixelNet Distributed Display Wall System to manage 10 display walls, 35 single screens, and more than 100 input sources.
Jupiter’s PixelNet is a new way to capture, distribute, control and display digital and analog video sources with flexibility and scalability. PixelNet can be used for multiple display walls as well as standalone displays. Hundreds of video sources can be brought into one PixelNet domain and then be distributed to any or all displays and walls within the domain. Any video source can be shown as a window on a single display, either by itself or sharing space with up to 30 other sources in windows on that display. The source can also be shown zoomed up as a large window spanning multiple display devices in a tiled display wall.
Recently, Jupiter Systems demonstrated its full range of AV systems at InfoComm China 2013. The company is an early investor in China through its subsidiary, Jupiter Systems China Beijing.
Jupiter’s Canvas is a new multipoint collaborative visualization solution that allows users to share video streams and collaborate across the enterprise. Users can access content wherever and whenever it is needed, using display walls, PCs, and mobile devices. Canvas enables participants across the world to annotate directly on live video and work on shared whiteboards.
Canvas enables its users to draw with a mouse, finger or stylus on the video itself. Text can be typed directly on the video.
Users can employ Canvas Remote Desktop Mimic or Canvas Remote Cursor to visualize and control remote desktops and applications. Canvas provides object-level security for all sources. System access requires user authentication. Windows Single Sign-On (SSO) is supported.
Canvas’ GUI is identical on the display wall and the PC. Canvas is established as a client-server application. Customers choose the number of Canvas Clients desired for Windows devices—Fusion Catalyst display wall processors, PCs, mobile device and add the Canvas Server software to networked server hardware.
