4DIAMOND GRID 10

Advanced Video Wall Control Technology
Identify, tag and manage mixed media sources using templates

Video wall deployments require a number of users to interact simultaneously with a large number of inputs across multiple screens to get the data where they are required. 4Diamond Grid 10 provides users with the interface  required to quickly and effectively manage content that include video captures, IP streams and local applications. Users are able to place any input source on any part of the Video Wall using a simple drag and drop operation. Precise positioning of each piece of content can be achieved through the mouse and keyboard, or via the revolutionary template tool. The template tool allows users to not only place their own templates across an entire wall which evenly distributes content but 4Diamond Grid 10 also allows users to apply a template to an individual window so multiple windows can be grouped together and moved as a single item. 4Diamond Grid 10 also introduces a tabled interface that allows a single user to seamlessly manage multiple video walls, users can see unique walls side by side to ensure continued smooth operation of walls.

Easy to use interface
4Diamond Grid 10 will allow any piece of content, whether  from a capture card, IP via the PC processor or an ActiveSQX card or local media to be placed anywhere on a video wall. 4Diamond Grid 10 also allows administrators to deploy multiple unique videowalls from a single 4DG processor. Using User Rights Management, administrators can determine which users on their network can firstly access each wall and secondly determine what level of permission each user will have. Restrictions include the number of sources and layout files available to each user, which templates they can deploy and whether the desktop capture is available or not.

    Users can create and store On-Screen Display, carousel and border settings in the Asset Manager for re-use in different layouts across multiple video walls.




 

Web Interface

The web interface allows users to connect to the video wall from any compatible browser. As long as the browser and the Datapath wall controller are on the same network, users are able to connect through a browser on their laptops, phones or tablets. Users can select which wall they wish to change and then will be presented with the available layouts.  The Web Interface is compatible with Chrome and Safari browsers. Systems administrators can also choose which walls can be accessed via the Web Interface, giving the ability to disable web access on sensitive walls.


 

KVM

Keyboard, video and Mouse (KVM) functionality gives 4Diamond Grid 10 operators the ability to manipulate sources from their workstations. In Command and Control environments, sources being captured may derive from unmanned workstations proces-sing data for display onto a wall. With 4Diamond Grid 10 software, operators can use their local keyboard and mouse to manipulate the remote machine. This allows high quality capture to be placed on a video wall, whilst the KVM is performed locally via an IP based 4DG Agent window.

 

Advanced Web Page Control

Advanced web page control gives operators the ability to view and manipulate web pages. The advanced functionality includes the auto-refresh of web pages allowing for up-to-the-minute monitoring, vertical and horizontal scroll ability to position the web page view, and a zoom function to focus only on the most important sections of a web page.


MultiWall

Multiple walls driven either by a single DG system or multiple systems can be viewed on a single 4Diamond Grid 10 interface or screen. Input sources such as Vision capture, IP decode or local media, will be automatically updated in the source list of the active wall. Users are able to add and remove content as necessary. Place any source in any window
 

 

 

Borders & Frames

The Borders and Frames feature allow users to add a colour edge to the images on the video wall.  Adding a border will surround the content with a chosen colour irrespective of the aspect ratio, whilst adding a frame will add a colour around the window on the video wall. Borders and Frames can be used to signify the importance of a piece of content, to quickly identify the source type or to categorize sources that may look similar but are monitoring different subsystems. Borders are available on Vision and SQX windows, frames are available on all windows. Borders and Frames can also be controlled via the Command Line Interface.

Banner feeds

Create banners for display on the video wall. Users specify the banner text (either by entering manually or by specifying an RSS feed to automatically parse), text scrolling direction and speed (or setting as static) and the background colour for the banner. Transparent backgrounds are also supported.

 


 

 

SQX Decoding

Playing many locally stored media files can be difficult due to processor limitations. 4Diamond Grid 10 has the ability to decode media files by using ActiveSQX cards. By assigning media to “Decode via SQX” 4Diamond Grid 10 PRO provides as many IP SQX sources as the installed hardware will allow. 


 

Unlimited IP SQX sources
4Diamond Grid 10 provides as many IP SQX sources as the installed hardware will allow.

 

User Rights Management

Using the Windows domain, registered users can be assigned access rights on a per wall basis. Individual roles can be granted differing permissions to affect  the changes that can be made to a given wall.

 

 

 

 


Users are able to share application windows with one or more users in a group, including those running video walls.

The software allows simultaneous interactivity with the same application by multiple users. Any changes will be syschronised instantly, meaning updates are seen in real-time.

Typical sectors where Quant could be used include business collaboration, traffic management centres, manufacturing process control centres, utility service operations and security suites.
