The new technology is a cost-effective solution for powering video walls of up to 96 screens
Datapath, a UK based outdoor hardware firm, has added its portfolio of video processing products with the introduction of the IQS4 – a one in/four out splitter solution engineered for video wall applications.
The IQS4 offers a cost-effective solution for powering video walls of up to 96 screens when paired with Datapath’s Image4K graphics cards. Using IQS4s reduces the overall number of graphics cards requirement, streamlining the video wall controller by reducing load and optimising capacity. IQS4 gives integrators the option to distribute video in 4K and split the signals at the video wall rather than having to use separate, expensive extenders for every HD output.
Mounting flexibility means the IQS4 can be used for any application. VESA mounting is supported for direct mounting behind displays. Where the IQS4s are hosted with the video wall controller, various rack mount options are available depending on the number of IQS4s required. Plus, there is the standalone option for placing on desks, workstations or shelving.
The IQS4 is purposely designed to meet the needs of customers needing a trusted, reliable 4-way splitter. Ben Dale, Product Marketing Manager for Datapath, explains: “Our renowned X-Series multi-display processors offer a wide range of features that are proven in the market over many years. With the IQS4, we have used that same basic splitter technology to provide a reliable, discreet solution for powering large video walls. With zero configuration required, the IQS4 is a plug-and-play device which offers near-zero latency.”
He adds, “By having true ‘splitting’ of quadrants, users and integrators can reduce cabling by distributing video content from the processor in 4K, and then splitting via the IQS4 at the video wall.”
