Each output can take its input from any region of the input canvas with all of the required cropping, scaling, rotation and frame-rate conversion handled by the Fx4-HDR hardware.
These regions can overlap to allow any output to replicate another or can be configured to support any creative splice of the source material. This allows the support of many nonrectangular screen
arrangements, as well as any mix of monitor orientations allowing users to create an almost unlimited multi-monitor canvas.
Further, downscaling support on each output allows each selected content region to be output and contained within an arbitrary area of the screen, filling the rest of the screen with a flat colour of user
choice. This can be used to correct content aspect ratio when displaying logos etc on non-standard screen arrangements, or to drive multiple LED controllers with exactly the correct pixels for each section
of a connected LED fixture.
The Datapath Fx4-HDR has dual Ethernet ports to allow users to add the device to their networks. Only one device in the chain requires connection to the physical LAN as Ethernet loop-through is supported
on the second port, meaning multiple devices can be connected.
Datapath’s hugely popular multi-screen design tool, Wall Designer has also been updated to incorporate Fx4-HDR. Wall Designer allows users to add displays from the ever-expanding database of monitors,
visualise their content by adding inputs and adjusting display regions and finally instantly program all devices either via USB or the network ports.
