High performance videowall software adds animation capabilities

NEC Display Solutions announces Hiperwall 3.0 launch


Munich, 28 November 2012 NEC Display Solutions Europe has launched Hiperwall 3.0, the latest version of its videowall content and source management solution with animation capabilities. The new solution makes it easy to manage and roll out all types of digital content for high resolution video wall solutions.

Hiperwall 3.0 adds significant benefits to its software package, which delivers content to an unlimited number of displays and videowalls. For increased flexibility, creativity and speed, content no longer needs to go through a cumbersome rendering process. Instead Hiperwall 3.0 enables users to animate content elements just before delivering it to the display. By eliminating the need to render content in advance, costs associated with editing are eliminated while still making it possible to do ad hoc content changes faster. Visual elements can instantly be replaced or reused at any time.

This performance enhancement is augmented by the added support for the latest and 3rd generation Intel ® Core TM i7 Slot-In-PCs, based on the OPS standard.

Hiperwall 3.0 brings enhanced control over content, which allows users to regulate when each element appears and disappears. Changing the position, size and rotation of any type of content, while specifying the duration of each transition is even easier. New visual effects include shading, transparency, mosaic as well as black and white features. The animation editor capabilities make Hiperwall 3.0 ideally suited for Command/Control, Digital Signage, Education and Entertainment applications.

"Hiperwall 3.0 makes it possible to deliver dynamic content for high resolution video wall solutions in the most direct way possible. This makes it easier for users to quickly act and react to necessary changes of the appearance of the video walls," said Thorsten Wilm, Manager Product Management Solutions at NEC Display Solutions Europe.

“Hiperwall has been an exemplary match for NEC Display Solutions and we are pleased to see what the animation benefits version 3.0 brings to our customers."

All new versions of Hiperwall are available with a software subscription, available for each Hiperwall licence and for free for the first year after the purchase. Customers who have already installed a previous version of Hiperwall can upgrade their existing system to Hiperwall 3.0 and after one year, a software subscription is available for 20 per cent of the normal purchase price of the licences.
