Jupiter and Omnicast Integration

Combining the best-of-breed capabilities of Jupiter display wall processors and Genetec’s video surveillance solution, Omnicast, customers can expect a truly powerful, scalable, and flexible visualization environment. This state-of-the-art communication and integration middleware allows an Omnicast operator to easily and seamlessly work on one or more Jupiter-driven display walls from a local desktop.

What are Jupiter PixelNet and Fusion Catalyst?

Jupiter has developed two powerful product lines for the command and control visualization markets: PixelNet and Fusion Catalyst. Both platforms are fully integrated with Genetec Omnicast for distributed display of video.

A PixelNet installation is comprised of a network of small, power-efficient input and output nodes connected via standard CAT-6 cables through a switch, and controlled with Jupiter's PixelNet Domain Control software (PDC). PixelNet's Remote Client can be configured and displayed in Omnicast as a site by taking advantage of HTML technology. An operator can then easily control both Omnicast and Pixelnet within the same platform.

Fusion Catalyst is the latest generation of Jupiter's award-winning display wall processors running Windows. With up to 320 Gbps of bandwidth in a Gen2 PCI Express architecture, there is power to deliver up to 200 HD streams to 120 outputs, at high resolution and full frame rates. Large systems of inputs and outputs can be driven from a single Fusion Catalyst display wall processor. The new Quad HD decoder board is perfect for displaying hundreds of HD video feeds at once. It also supports legacy SD protocols for backwards compatibility with older IP cameras.

Jupiter's ControlPoint software is included with every Fusion Catalyst unit. ControlPoint allows operators to save the state of the display wall as a layout and store it on the display processor so that later they can quickly recall saved layouts directly from the user interface or from user-assigned hot-keys. The Fusion Catalyst family of display wall processors offers performance, scalability, and flexibility to spare.

Jupiter's Systems Integration Process with Omnicast

Jupiter's video wall processors* are integrated with Omnicast versions 4.7 and higher. The video wall will synchronize with the cameras managed by Omnicast to reduce the amount of setup time. Motion detection event processing can also be setup to automatically pull up a specific layout when a motion detection event is triggered in Omnicast.

* Jupiter PDC Controller version 1.4.1 and up is needed.

Motion detection events are processed from Omnicast and are received by the video wall. The video wall will in turn perform a user-defined layout load.

A single login is used to control Omnicast desktop clients and Jupiter display walls. Multiple users can be logged into the system simultaneously, each one with a synchronous view of the Jupiter display walls.

Using the common directory of available live network cameras, NVRs, and pre-defined live video tours, operators maintain a cohesive view of the system regardless of where the video is displayed-on a local desktop or a Jupiter display wall. Network video streams, unicast or multicast, can be directed to a Jupiter display wall. Since saving and restoring window layouts is simple, it is easy to manage one or more display walls with many window layouts for specific views.

Alarms generated within the Omnicast application can be set to trigger layout loads, highlight a specific window on the display wall, or execute other actions. Custom and multipart alarm actions are possible.

In addition to visual sources made available through Omnicast, the integration exposes unique Jupiter features such as the ability to display and control visual sources directly connected to the Jupiter display wall processor (For example: computers connected via RGB or DVI cable, or analog video from a video matrix switch.). This integration also allows the user to start and display applications running directly on the processor, where multiple systems are employed.

Jupiter Differentiators at a Glance

With thousands of installations in more than 50 countries, Jupiter display wall controllers are the global choice for quality and 24/7 reliability. Jupiter systems are pixel perfect from source to screen.

  • Powerful networked solutions
  • Drag-and-drop software control
  • Large or small configurations
  • Global sales and support network
  • Products made in the USA

Scalable Solution
One or many display walls are easily managed within Omnicast's interface. Display walls of any size and organization can be controlled, from a simple 2x2 array of LCD monitors to an enormous wall comprised of dozens of displays. Jupiter processors support nearly every manufacturer of display device and can be configured to handle even the largest video walls-all without compromising performance or flexibility.

Jupiter processors use advanced network video decoding technology to support the simultaneous decode and display of network video cameras, NVR, and DVR streams at full resolution and refresh rate.

The Right Choice
Covering all conceivable configuration requirements, both in size of application and budget, there is a Jupiter display wall processor that is right for the job at hand, and deeply integrated within Omnicast.
