High Resolution Systems Introduces Video Wall Controller that is User Friendly, Browser-Based

High Resolution Systems unveiled its Video Wall Controller, offering video wall control and layout building as a software upgrade for the HRS Enterprise-10ss control system. Enterprise is the facility management suite from HRS and part of the HRS Integration Platform connecting technology, people and systems.

Typically, video wall layouts are predefined and difficult to update after their initial installation. End users often have to go outside their organizations for costly technical assistance. The browser-based Video Wall Controller is a user-friendly, quick, and intuitive way for customers to manipulate video wall configuration, the companysays, layering and sources with a touch screen or mobile interface. It works with the HRS Control Pro app and is also available in the Windows App Store and Apple iOS App Store.

"By integrating video wall control with our Enterprise control system we have given users full control of the room -- lighting, audio, the environment, and the video wall -- all from one simple interface," says HRS vice president of business development, Drew Taylor.

The Video Wall Controller, which made its debut at InfoComm 2015, delivers the power of video wall layout building and control into users' hands for the first time. They can move layers around the screen, drag and drop sources and position them, and save layouts as presets. They simply pinch the interface to zoom layers.

The Video Wall Controller is currently optimized for the Christie Spyder X20 image processor. "Spyder is a flexible and popular processor with lots of advanced features; we have a lot of experience with Spyders in our rental inventory," says Taylor. "We plan to support other processors with our Video Wall Controller and are moving forward with more manufacturer partnerships."

New since InfoComm is the addition of the Collaboration Window feature. It allows users to designate a specific pixel space or section on the video wall and send it via a separate Spyder output to colleagues collaborating in a video conference room or overflow room.

HRS has set up a Video Wall Controller demo at the Primeview Showroom near Grand Central Station in midtown Manhattan. Contact HRS to book an appointment to see the system in action. A second demo will soon be available through Christie in Phoenix, Arizona.
