System Concepts:

The VP-400B/500B/1500B/2000B/2500B series processors are designed to accept and aggregate multiple video signals, manipulate the size and placement of each image and re-display them on multiple large-scale displays such as a video wall or array of projectors or monitors. Since the VP processor is running the Windows 7/64 operating system, application software (i.e. Internet Explorer etc) can run locally and concurrently with windows showing external video source information while allowing window overlapping and user determined Z-order layouts. Image and window control is accomplished with Pixell’s Wall Control client and server software running on the processor itself. Wall Control client user interface typically is shown on the supported control monitor output which is separate from the main array outputs. Wall Control client can be configured to show what images are on the main array or wire frame representation as below. Wall Control client can also be installed on multiple customer owned network connected Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 computers and interact with the processor remotely and concurrently.
Pixell Video Processor Control Software

The VP-series of video processors have 2 main pieces of control software, Layout Touch for simple recalling of layouts and Wall Control for creating and saving of those layouts.

Wall Control must be run on the processor at a minimum, Layout Touch is optional.

Wall Control from Pixell is a client/server based software application made to run on the VP series of hardware based video processors. The server portion runs on the processor itself. The client version provides the user interface as shown below and can also run on the processor, or any other network connected MS Windows based computer. Multiple iterations of the server and client application can run concurrently on different machines.

The overall function of the application is to allow selection of external video signals connected to appropriate inputs on the processor, to be shown in sizeable and moveable windows on a video wall displays connected to the processor outputs.

Multiple inputs can be shown in real time across any output array selected on the processor. When multiple windows are created, with various video signals being shown in those windows, this is referred to as a “Layout”.  Multiple different layouts can be saved as various names on the processor, and can be recalled with a single mouse click within Wall Control or from Layout Touch keypad as below. External control system such as AMX or Crestron type systems can be used as well.

Below is a screen shot of the Wall Control client application driving a 4x3 array using 12 wireframe window representations.
Below is a screen shot of the same Wall Control client application as above with 12 windows open and showing the data that is coming into the processor from each source and being shown on the video wall array.  Multiple Clients can be connected concurrently and each updated at approximately once each second.
Remote Keyboard is a simple client/server utility that allows any Windows PC to take keyboard and mouse control of any PC that the processor is capturing and displaying the video signal of. So if operators in a control room are viewing various PC’s desktops on a video wall, and the need arises to change something on one of those PC’s being viewed, instead of going to that PC’s keyboard, they can connect to via Remote Keyboard. Much like a KVM over the network but without the video piece since that is being handled by the processor/video wall. Remote Keyboard Server is a service that runs on all machines that need to be controlled (including the processor itself if desired) and it is waiting for a connection. Remote Keyboard Client is a utility that is envoked by an operator and they are presented with a list of available Servers to connect to as below:
In the example above only 1 Server is available (Pixell-VP), more would be listed below it. Once the connection is made the operators PC screen goes white and their keyboard and mouse are connected to Server machine until they disconnect or are timed out after user defined period of time.

 



Pixell Touch is a simple user screen that allows recalling of layouts created with Wall Control above. Layout Touch is intended for use during presentations or shift changes, any time a simple no frills layout change is required.

Below is a screen shot of the layout selector screen, with 9 layouts defined in the file selector screen below. Up to 24 layouts can be defined on this page.
Pixell Touch is a web page based system so any network connected device that can run a browser can use Layout Touch, this includes I-Phones, I-Pads, Linux, PC’s, wireless devices,  Etc.

Below is a screen shot of the file editor program that defines and populates the above screen. Multiple touch screens can be defined and saved, with or without password
Some features shown and listed in this document are optional. Not all inputs or outputs can be installed in a given chassis. Contact Pixell for legal configurations and quotations, all units built to order. Specifications subject to change without notice.
