JUPITER ANNOUNCES ITS NEW PIXELNET™ TECHNOLOGY AND PIXELNET
INPUT NODES FOR BRINGING DVI, SDI AND HD COMPONENT VIDEO
SOURCES INTO ITS FUSION DISPLAY WALL PROCESSORS

 

New PixelNet system expands Fusion display capabilities while making it easier and less expensive to design, build and manage complex control rooms

 

INFOCOMM, Orlando, FL - June 6, 2006 Jupiter Systems (Booth #1933), the industry leader in display wall processing for command and control applications, today introduced PixelNet, its revolutionary new way to capture, control and display digital and analog information on a Fusion 960, Fusion 964 and Fusion 980 display wall.

Based on Jupiter’s proprietary network technology, PixelNet provides an easily scalable, high quality, high performance, and fault-tolerant means of linking large numbers of data and video inputs to a Fusion display wall processor.  Using standard Cat5e cabling PixelNet can cover a main control room, auxiliary meeting rooms, emergency or backup control rooms, and other spaces, all sharing the same inputs and system resources.  Jupiter is simultaneously introducing the first three PixelNet input nodes for capturing HD component video, SDI, and high resolution computer DVI signals, two PixelSwitch™ hubs with 24 or 48 ports, and the PixelNet FusionLink™ card enabling a Fusion display wall processor to select among input nodes.  This revolutionary technology allows high bandwidth, high quality signals to be delivered over standard Cat5e cable with perfect digital pixel accuracy and without using artifact-inducing compression techniques.

PixelNet consists of three basic elements:

  • A PixelSwitch which can accommodate either 24 or 48 ports allowing the user to select among the many input nodes connected. Multiple Fusion display walls may be connected to a PixelSwitch so input nodes may be shared among the display walls. 

 

  • PixelNet input nodes are small, silent and use very little power.  They are designed to be installed close to a source device and connect to PixelNet through a PixelSwitch™.

     
  • Using PixelNet FusionLink™ cards, Jupiter Fusion 960, 964 or 980 Display Wall Processors connect to PixelNet and can display any PixelNet input node content in scalable, moveable windows on a display wall.

PixelNet is a high-bandwidth, non-blocking switched network.  Data transmission from one PixelNet node to another is completely independent of other communicating nodes.  Thanks to its switched character, PixelNet is extraordinarily flexible; one or many PixelNet input nodes can be shared among one or many Fusion-based display walls, simultaneously.

PixelNet networks are automatically self-organizing, and PixelNet nodes exchange visual data in a common, digital format. No network management, configuration or external signal management is required to create a PixelNet of any size or complexity. 

PixelNet nodes have very long MTBF, however, a node failure does not disrupt the operation of other nodes in the network, and a failed node can easily be replaced while leaving the rest of the network running – truly hot-swappable.

All connection between input nodes, PixelSwitches and FusionLink cards is accomplished using common Cat5e cables up to 100 meters in length.  This inexpensive cabling can greatly reduce the cost of wiring a large control room compared to traditional multiple-coax cables for analog signals and fiber optic extenders for DVI digital.  If long-distance distribution of signals is required, optional use of fiber transceivers can extend PixelNet transmission distances to miles. 

PixelNet is completely digital in nature, and with digital input sources such as a DVI computer source or SDI video, the network can be digital end-to-end, resulting in the best possible visual performance.  Video signals are enhanced through the use of Algolith video processing technology for de-interlacing, anti-aliasing and inverse telecine, resulting in broadcast-quality display.  Boardroom, presentation venues and mission critical control rooms all benefit from the simple installation and superb visual performance of a PixelNet-based network.

JUPITER SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES NEW HIGH PERFORMANCE STREAMING VIDEO SYSTEM FOR ITS FUSION 960 AND FUSION 980 DISPLAY WALL PROCESSORS

 New Streaming Video System Can Display Up to
160 Video Streams On a Single Display Wall

 

INFOCOMM 2005, LAS VEGAS, June 8, 2005.  Jupiter Systems, the leading independent supplier of Display Wall Processors, announced a new, high-performance streaming video system for its Fusion 980 and Fusion 960 Display Wall Processors.   The Fusion Streaming Video System will give the Fusion line the ability to display up to 160 MPEG-1 or 2 video streams on a single wall.   The advance will provide for a high quality, low-latency display of numerous live video streams on a Jupiter Fusion Display Wall. 

 

 

Jupiter’s Fusion Streaming Video System is powered by the Streaming Video Card, incorporating quad MPEG decoding chips to decode and display encoded video streams from multiple sources required for command and control applications.  Increasing numbers of video sources have been the trend for command and control operations such as security, defense, intelligent traffic and building management.  The cost of transporting video signals using traditional techniques has become prohibitive, whereas by using existing IP networks and digitally encoded and compressed video, companies have an economical way to transport multiple video feeds needed for robust command and control solutions.     

“Our customers have asked us for a solution to bring compressed digital video into our high performance display systems,” said John Stark, Director of Marketing at Jupiter. “The Fusion Streaming Video System gives customers the ability to decode and display multiple digitally encoded and compressed video streams from various encoder vendors on a single display wall.”

 

The Fusion Streaming Video System

Jupiter's new Fusion Streaming Video System gives the Fusion Processors the ability to decode and display up to 160 MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 video streams (MPEG-4 is planned for a coming release), and to receive these signals from a mixture of distribution and encoding methods, including single, multicast, or file-based. 

The Fusion Streaming Video System is fully integrated into Jupiter's ControlPoint software suite, providing the same level of precise control as any other source in the system. Streaming Video windows can be moved and scaled similarly to standard analog video windows and can be saved and recalled as a display wall layout.

 

Fusion Streaming Video Card

The Fusion Streaming Video Card provides S-Video and Composite video output in NTSC/PAL formats.  It decompresses MPEG-1 (ISO 1172) and MPEG-2 (ISO 3818) audio and video bit streams.  It can decode transport and program streams, elementary audio and video streams, as well as unencrypted DVD files (.vob files).   

The Fusion Streaming Video Card provides standard transport controls for stop, pause, play, fast forward and reverse, during file playback, and looping files for continuous playback.  It can handle up to 12 streams within a Jupiter Fusion 960 or 980 Display Wall Processor and additional streams in increments of 8 or 16 using an external Streaming Video Server Chassis.   External processors connect to the Jupiter Fusion 960 or 980 via a dedicated set of Octal Video boards, which are seamlessly controlled from the master Jupiter Fusion Display Wall Processor.  Up to 10 external Streaming Video Server chassis can be added to a Fusion 980 to support up to 160 live video streams; up to 6 can be added to a Fusion 960 for a total of 96 streams.

 

Fusion Streaming Video Server

The Fusion Streaming Video Server is a dedicated system which incorporates Streaming Video Cards and is controlled via distributed control software located on a Jupiter Fusion 960 or Fusion 980 and the server. The Streaming Video Server includes an integrated 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet (1000 base-T) interface.  The new server allows for either 2 or 4 Streaming Video Cards which are directly connected to a Jupiter Fusion Display Wall Processor.  The Fusion Streaming Video Server can be ordered in four models, the F960-SVS-8, F960-SVS-16, F980-SVS-8, and F980-SVS-16.

JUPITER SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES UPGRADES TO ITS HIGH
PERFORMANCE FUSION 900 DISPLAY WALL CONTROLLERS

Enhanced Line Provides New Octal Video Card for better scaling and
processing, upgraded disk drives and expanded RAID capability

 

San Leandro, CA, November 1, 2004.  Jupiter Systems, an ISO-9001:2000 certified company, today announced its has expanded and enhanced its high performance Fusion 900 Display Wall processor line with new video processing options, larger disk drive capacities and expanded SCSI RAID capabilities.

Octal Video Card

The new Octal Video card is designed to support applications where large numbers of video sources must be displayed concurrently in a control room, such as intelligent traffic management and the security and surveillance markets.  What makes this add-in card unique is that it is the first to carry is own video processing and scaling chip designed by Jupiter Systems.  Each card provides eight high performance video processors and optionally, eight additional video input connectors.  With multiple Octal Video cards, a Jupiter display wall processor can display over one hundred video windows simultaneously, and allow a user to resize or place those windows anywhere on a display wall.

The Octal Video card hardware integrates seamlessly into the ControlPoint software architecture - maintaining a consistent user interface and ensuring a superb user experience.

With multiple Octal Video Cards installed in a Jupiter display wall processor, over one hundred video sources can be shown on the display wall simultaneously.  This new capability provides the flexibility to directly attach all required video sources directly to the processor, eliminating the need for an external matrix switch, thus reducing cost and simplifying installation while improving user control.

A Fusion 960 or Fusion 980 configured with multiple Octal Video cards is the perfect solution for Intelligent Traffic, 911/Dispatch, and Surveillance installations that require monitoring numerous video sources simultaneously.

Upgraded Disk Drives

Jupiter has upgraded the disk drives on its Fusion 900 series processors featuring IDE drives.  The VizionPlus, Fusion 940, and Fusion 960 now offer standard 80GB drives upgraded from the previous 20GB. Additionally, VizionPlus and Fusion 960 drives are housed in removable canisters, and each processor can be configured with up to two drives. The Fusion 960 has also been enhanced with a SCSI RAID option of up to three hot-swappable SCA drives managed by a hardware RAID controller supporting RAID 0, 1, or 5.

“Jupiter is committed to maintaining its strong leadership in the control room visualization market,” said John Stark, Director of Marketing at Jupiter Systems.  “The new Octal Video Card, the first to utilize a Jupiter designed and built video chip, and greater disk drive capacities, extends what are already the industry’s top performing processors.” 

Jupiter Systems pioneered the purpose-built controller which allows customers to use any display from any vendor to suit their specific needs

JUPITER SYSTEMS DRIVES EXPANSION IN CHINA
WITH NEW WHOLLY-OWNED SUBSIDIARY

New Subsidiary Positions Leading Provider of Display Wall
Processors for Next Round of Growth

 

InfoComm04, Atlanta, June 9, 2004.  Jupiter Systems, an ISO-9000:2001 registered company and early entrant into the Chinese controller market, today announced the creation of a wholly-owned subsidiary in China to provide local sales and service capabilities.  The new subsidiary will assemble and support the high performance Fusion 940 and Fusion 960 Display Wall Processors, in the Chinese market, and will provide software localization and technical support for the Jupiter’s entire product line from it’s new presence on the Chinese mainland.  Jupiter’s full range of controllers, including the Fusion 940 and Fusion 960, will continue to be manufactured in the U.S. 

“The creation of the wholly-owned subsidiary is the culmination of many years of work and planning,” said Wayne W. Wahlenmeier, Jupiter’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We believe that a local operation will make Jupiter controllers more widely available in China to a greater variety of dealers, providing Jupiter with an overseas market opportunity that may some day equal U.S. sales.  We need a stronger local presence to do that,” added Wahlenmeier. 

Jupiter Systems has been selling its Display Wall Processors in China since 1995.  Today the company is the leading provider of Display Wall Processors used in large-scale command and control installations for traffic, security, police, utilities, telecom, government and business applications.

JUPITER PROVIDES VIZION FOR U.S. AIR AND MISSILE DEFENSE COMMAND’S NEW PROTOTYPE MOBILE
TACTICAL OPERATIONS CENTER

 

Vizion display wall controllers becomes a U.S. Army standard

for network-centric, tactical operation centers


AFCEA, San Diego, February 3, 2004
.  Jupiter Systems announced today that the Air and Missile Defense Command and Control Systems (AMDCCS) has installed a Jupiter Vizion display wall controller in a new, experimental TOC (tactical operations center).  The AMDCCS, based in Huntsville, Alabama, is responsible for the Army’s defense against theater ballistic missiles.  The new TOC will serve as a prototype for air and missile defense command and control operations around the world.

 

New State-of-the-Art-System

 

The new center’s planning and control systems provide access to tactical and strategic communications, tactical data links, and intelligence networks, allowing the commander and his staff to manage all aspects of air and missile defense. Integrated with the latest in communications technologies, the system allows interoperability with joint and coalition forces. In response to the events of 9/11, development of this state-of-the-art system was accelerated and produced in less than a year -- record time -- with commercial off-the-shelf equipment from vendors like Jupiter.  Delivered to the 263rd AAMDC, based in Anderson, South Carolina, it enables the unit to deploy anywhere in the world to support theater air and missile defense missions.

 

Prior to installing the Jupiter controllers, the AAMDC (Army Air and Missile Defense Command) had no way to share valuable data among different functions in their tactical operations center (TOC), except by walking over to individual consoles where one group’s information was displayed. If a commander wanted to see an overall picture of his command, he would be forced to look at data on multiple monitors in different locations within the TOC. Additionally, critical, real-time video and  resources could be found in only one area of the operations center.

 

The new display system had to address these limitations and be easy-to-use, fault tolerant and highly reliable.  Designed for  24/7 operation, it had to be rack-mounted inside a shelter or shock-mounted on a military transit case.  The system had to be able to survive harsh conditions, including dust, mud, and intense heat. Even in environmentally controlled areas, the system had to operate over a range of extreme temperatures.  Most importantly, the technology had to be easy to install, use and maintain.    

 

To accomplish its missile defense mission, the AAMDC determined to implement a full-scale display wall system.  Display walls, increasingly used in military and other operations, provide a single integrated picture of critical information, to form a Common Operational Picture or COP. Display Wall Controllers enable display walls to synthesize and digest enormous amounts of data from a wide range of sources at the same time, to zero in on a specific spot of activity, or to enlarge or manipulate the data to display only the relevant information.

 

“The beauty of the Jupiter display wall controller is that it helps us synthesize some 18 displays or any combination of them onto a single screen and see a situation more clearly, evaluate it quickly, and communicate that information more effectively to our commander, said Major Tim Sellers, Deputy G6, 263rd Army Air and Missile Defense Command.

 

            Jupiter Vizion Series Display Wall Controllers
 

Because of these requirements, the AMDCCS selected the Jupiter Systems Vizion Series controller for single, dual and quad display.  The new controllers feature “virtual screen” capability, which makes multiple screens look and act as if they are a single, large screen.  They provide the ideal solution for presenting large amounts of data on an operator’s console or high-resolution projector display wall quickly, simply, and reliably—and at an affordable cost.

            Allows Customer to Choose Best Display Solution for Its Specific Needs 

Built for maximum flexibility and dependability, Jupiter Systems’ Display Wall Controllers are the only controllers sold on their own, independent of the projector. For the AAMDC, this meant the unit could choose the best display devices for their specific needs. Moreover, the Jupiter controller is well suited to a broad range of projectors.

            Provides Highest Level of Performance

A primary concern of the AMDCCS was that the controller could perform to meet the rigorous requirements of missile defense operations. By seamlessly integrating multiple sources of digital and analog information onto a single high-resolution screen, the Jupiter system enables the Army’s command and control—for the first time—to synthesize the inputs from some 19 different sources, with 24/7 reliability. The unparalleled combination of up to 12 video and 12 RGB inputs, LAN connectivity, and the ability to run all PC applications in one platform enables the visual data to be displayed in exactly the way the viewer needs it. The Vizion series supports a 16bpp color model at resolutions up to
1600x1200 for clear, sharp imaging. Sources simply plug into rear-mounted ports for a clean and easy setup.

            Easy-to-Use

The compact, fully integrated system is dependable and intuitively easy to use and can be controlled by an attached keyboard and mouse, a touch-panel interface, or a customer interface. Users can also control the system remotely via a LAN and a Vizion series control client. Multiple clients can connect to the processor simultaneously, and all client users receive real-time updates. Through the easy-to-use Windows NT/2000 interface, users can create and adjust RGB and video windows on the screen, save the current setup of the system as a layout, and recall that layout at any time. The high level of visual feedback makes control of nearly all aspects of the system simple and intuitive.

            Remote-Control Interface

The remote-control interface, ControlPoint, provides the capability of controlling your RGB and LiveVideo windows from a single homogeneous interface that can be used both locally and remotely. The remote control capabilities of ControlPoint allow control of a display device from the desktop or console, as well as from the display controller itself.

 

            Brief Description of the Solution
 

The new mobile command and control system consists of six vehicles and six shelters (16 x 30 feet). Three of the tents contain video display walls which measure approximately 60” diagonal: Active Defense, Passive Defense, and Attack Operations.  A fourth, the Combat Information Center, houses two 60” displays side-by-side and can handle up to 18 different images or inputs.  The screens are lit up by Epson 9000 series projectors which are easy to mount and relatively small compared to a plasma monitor or large screen television and also greatly reduces the weight.. Also cabling is simplified by using the Jupiter controller which allows placement of any signal in a window of any size anywhere on the two screens.

 

About Jupiter Systems

 

Jupiter Systems is considered the leading worldwide supplier of network-based multiple-screen display stations and display wall controllers. Its products, considered “best of breed”, drive desktop and operator consoles and projectors in display walls. All Jupiter products feature “virtual screen” capability, which makes multiple screens look and act as if they are a single, large screen.

JUPITER LAUNCHES NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE DISPLAY WALL
CONTROLLER WITH INNOVATIVE SWITCHED-FABRIC ARCHITECTURE

New Fusion 980 delivers highest performance,
greatest flexibility and reliability on market today


GOVERNMENT VIDEO TECHNOLOGY EXPO 2003, Washington, D.C. , December 3, 2003.  
Jupiter Systems, an ISO-9001:2000 registered company, announced the launch of its new Fusion 980 display wall controller, the highest-performance processor on the market today for command-and-control applications. The launch of the new Fusion 980 also marks the introduction of Jupiter’s revolutionary new switched-fabric architecture. This innovative new architecture, coupled with Intel’s new dual-core Xeon processor and ATI’s Radeon Mobility 7500 graphics chip, allows the Fusion 980 to drive as many as 60 displays at 1600´ 1200 resolution and to display up to 32 video sources, 32 RGB computer sources and virtually unlimited network and local applications.  

“The new Fusion 980 raises the bar on controller performance, operational flexibility, and reliability for the control room,” said John Stark, Director of Marketing at Jupiter. “Its launch marks a significant development in the Jupiter product family offering and within the industry.” 

The Fusion 980 display wall controller incorporates all of the visual data sources found in a control- room environment and displays them in movable, scalable windows on a display wall. Data sources can include information from local or remote network applications, direct video, and analog RGB feeds. An intuitive user interface provides easy access to all data sources. 

Innovative New Switched-Fabric Architecture 

The ground-breaking controller features Jupiter’s new cutting-edge switched-fabric interconnect architecture housed in its own 8U chassis. Because traditional bus architectures, such as PCI, provide serialized access for connected resources, they are often overwhelmed by the processing demands of high-speed data and graphics commonly found in the control-room environment. By comparison, the revolutionary Fusion 980 switched-fabric architecture provides 15 separate peripheral slots with a dedicated bandwidth of 4 Gbps each. Peripheral cards connect through the Fusion 980 backplane to an ultrahigh-bandwidth switch card, which determines the optimal routing for passing data between the cards. As a result, overall aggregate data bandwidth can reach a blistering 64 Gbps with the addition of an optional redundant switch card. 

All graphics devices have access to connected video sources through Jupiter’s proprietary analog video bus, which runs in parallel with the switched-fabric. The video bus allows video sources to display in real time, regardless of the size of the window. 

Other Special Product Features 

Housed in a separate 4U chassis, the Fusion 980 CPU chassis provides dual Intel Xeon processors. The processors run at 2.8 GHz and use a 533 MHz front-side bus coupled to  a standard 1 GB of DDR RAM, and a PCI-X peripheral bus with five available slots. The Fusion 980 CPU chassis connects to the 8U switched-fabric chassis via the same high-bandwidth connection that connects all of the switched-fabric peripheral slots. This ensures the very highest graphics performance.  

With the equivalent of four processors, made available through Intel’s Hyper-Threading Technology, the Fusion 980 can handily execute the most demanding command-and-control applications, easily outrunning its competition. Five PCI-X slots in the CPU chassis can hold optional quad or dual Gigabit Ethernet cards as well as a hardware-based SCSI RAID card. The Fusion 980 can take an additional 2 GB of RAM, for a maximum 3 GB. These features combine to produce the fastest, most flexible computing, graphics, and video platform available today in a display wall controller. 

The Fusion 980 provides 32 composite BNC connectors and 16 mini-DIN S-Video connectors. The Fusion 980 also offers the ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 graphics chip, with 32 MB of on-chip memory and a core clock speed of 225 MHz, providing resolutions up to 1600´1200 pixels analog, and up to 1280x1024 digital. 

The new controller is also designed for continuous 24/7 operation with many hot-swappable components, including dual redundant power supplies on both the CPU and the switch fabric chassis, input, output, and fabric switch cards, fans, and SCSI disk drives. Hardware and software continuously monitor system parameters: ambient chassis temperature, CPU temperature, power supply voltages, switched-fabric link status, and fan speeds, automatically alerting users to potential problems.  

Jupiter Systems designs all its own software and hardware, creating a tightly woven architecture that wrests the highest possible performance from its systems. Its third-generation Galileo VirtualScreen™ drivers are seamlessly integrated into the Windows XP environment, providing intuitive setup of display wall configurations and allowing Windows applications to freely move and scale across the entire display wall. Included “X” server software provides compatibility with X Window client applications from servers such as those from HP, IBM, and Sun. 

Included with the Fusion 980 is Jupiter’s RemoteCursor™ software, which allows a client Windows workstation to take control of the display wall over a network, as if the user were operating the keyboard and mouse directly attached to the controller.   Multiple users can run RemoteCursor, although only one can control the display wall at a given time.

ControlPoint™ Software 

The Fusion 980 ships with Jupiter’s intuitive ControlPoint software, which controls and manages the display wall controller. ControlPoint provides a dialog-based user interface for changing input channels, adjusting display parameters such as contrast, saturation and hue, and positioning, sizing, and labeling the windows. ControlPoint also allows the user to crop a video or RGB input display to view only that portion of interest to the user. ControlPoint remote client displays a scalable graphic mimic of the display wall, which includes a real-time display of all of the windows on the wall for easy identification of specific windows during manipulation of the display wall. The proprietary software alerts the user to potentially hazardous conditions via an icon displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the remote client window. 

Importantly, ControlPoint also provides the ability to save display wall layouts and to quickly recall these layouts directly from the user interface or from user-assignable hot-keys.  

ControlPoint is a client/server-based system, where the server resides on the Fusion 980 processor and directly accesses the hardware functionality, and the client is installed on a user’s network-attached PC running Windows. ControlPoint client and server communicate over a TCP/IP connection with ContolPoint’s open-text communications protocol. The ControlPoint protocol and supporting API can be used for custom applications and control. Touch-panel interfaces, remote-control software, and custom applications can all be connected to a display wall via the Jupiter processor. Simple applications using JavaScript and HTML can be generated in minutes, whereas the full power of the Jupiter Fusion 980 is available to those who truly want a customized interface and complete control.

JUPITER SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES ISO 9001:2000 Certification

Successful Registration Underscores Company’s Commitment to
Quality, Customer Satisfaction and the Global Marketplace
 
 

SAN LEANDRO, CA, August 4, 2003 Jupiter Systems, the industry leader in display wall controllers, today announced its successful registration for ISO 9001:2000. 

The certification means that Jupiter Systems has met all of the requirements of the rigorous, quality management standard for implementing and improving a quality system.   These requirements include the design and formalization of the quality management process, the development of a quality systems management manual and control documents, implementation and monitoring of the system, maintenance of records to prove the requirements have been met, and ongoing performance improvement. 

“From the founding of the company we have remained committed to product quality, customer satisfaction and the global marketplace,” said Eric Wogsberg, president of Jupiter Systems.  “Our registration with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is the latest step in that commitment.” 

ISO 9000, and its more recent version ISO 9001:2000, were designed in response to the impact of globalization and the need to satisfy the quality demands of a new international marketplace.  Today the ISO 9000 family of quality management standards and guidelines is considered the universal measure of quality management.   While ISO certification is routinely sought by Fortune 500 and large Silicon Valley companies, its rigorous requirements and cost have made it rare in smaller companies like Jupiter Systems.   

Jupiter Systems completed the intensive certification process in just six months utilizing a training program developed by Alamo Learning Systems in partnership with the American Electronics Association. 

“A quality management system is a company philosophy as much as a set of procedures,” said Chuck Kelley, Director of Operations and Jupiter’s Quality Management Representative.  “It has to start at the top and extend all the way down through the organization. It’s a team effort and commitment, and we are proud to have been certified.”

JUPITER SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES RECORD SALES
TO CHINA FOR TRAFFIC, POLICE, UTILITIES,
TELECOM, GOVERNMENT & SECURITY

 

Sales include large-scale command and control installations to cities of Beijing, Kunming, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Pudong, Guangdong, Chengdu, China Telecom & ICBC Bank

 

 SAN LEANDRO, CA  April 16, 2003  Jupiter Systems, the industry leader in display wall controllers, today announced record sales to China during the past year, driven by growing demand for command and control systems. The company attributed these sales to its innovative, high-performance, superior quality display wall controllers and early entry into the Chinese market.  Jupiter sales include large-scale installations for the cities of Beijing, Kunming, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Pudong, Guangdong, Wenzhou, ZhuHai and Chengdu as well as public utilities (gas, electricity, water), security, government, telecommunications (China Telecom, Xian Telecom, Shenzhen Telecom), and banks (ICBC, one of China’s largest).
 

“We believe in the enormous potential of the Chinese market and got involved early on,” said Wayne Wahlenmeier, Vice President Sales and Marketing.  “In 1995 we began to establish a presence in China and to build the brand image of being the best display wall controller on the market. Today that investment is paying off.  We expect demand to grow substantially over the next few years.”

China’s commitment to modernizing the country’s developing infrastructure— its roads, telecommunications, utilities and military—has played a major role in China’s economy since the mid-90s. The country’s entry into the WTO (World Trade Organization) in November 2001 further contributed to this growth.
 

“Command and control systems play a critical role in improving decision-making and responsiveness of the entire infrastructure, especially in the demanding, large-scale installations currently being built in China. The Jupiter controller enables a display wall to show information from a wide range of sources quickly and effectively,” said Wahlenmeier.

 

Uniquely, Jupiter Fusion Controllers Are Display Independent, Allowing the Customer to Choose

Considered “best of class,” Jupiter Systems’ Display Wall Controllers are the only controllers sold on their own, independent of the projector allowing customers to choose the best display for their specific needs. Jupiter’s controllers are especially well-suited to the large-scale projects found in China today, in which data might come from hundreds of sources to be scaled and viewed on walls of 50 or more projectors.  Furthermore, Jupiter’s top-of-the-line Fusion 970 offers true 24/7 operation with “hot swappable” graphics cards, RGB input cards, fans, and power supplies, as well as removable hard drives.  Jupiter controllers are designed for easy installation and service.  And because it builds its own controllers, Jupiter offers products with tighter hardware integration and software control than its competitors, who buy off-the-shelf, general-purpose components.  Jupiter’s Display Wall Controllers provide an open platform for a broad range of third-party remote and local applications, control interfaces, and enhancements, allowing each customer to implement the best solution for its specific needs, preventing down-time and ensuring trouble-free, continuous service.

Jupiter’s popular processors already support both Microsoft Windows 2000 and Red Hat Linux.

The addition of Windows XP Professional to the Jupiter family of products brings users the power of Microsoft’s latest and most advanced operating system. "With Windows XP Professional, Jupiter display wall controllers benefit from increased performance and stability, while maintaining compatibility with Windows applications currently out in the field," said Wayne Wahlenmeier, VP of Sales and Marketing for Jupiter.

Jupiter display wall controllers will derive additional performance benefits from optimized drivers and the integration of Jupiter’s Virtual Screen drivers and technology within the Microsoft standard. The Virtual Screen feature, available on all Jupiter products, provides the ability to make multiple-screens look and act as if they are a single, large, logical screen. Jupiter’s superior product line continues to benefit from ongoing software enhancements such as these.

Jupiter’s broad range of display wall controllers deliver rich functionality including real-time video, RGB inputs, redundant and hot-swappable hardware components, and ControlPointä software to integrate all these features. ControlPointä software manages the placement and display of RGB, video, and application windows, monitors system status, and provides open APIs and serial and TCP/IP protocols for easy customization. ControlPoint offers a consistent, intuitive graphical user interface for creating RGB, video, and application windows, interactively placing them on the desktop, and saving and restoring window display layouts. The software also provides simultaneous, multi-user interaction with the display over a network. [Is that too much info on ControlPoint?]  Jupiter’s RemoteCursorä software enables convenient, direct manipulation of display wall content over a network with the user’s own keyboard and mouse.

Windows XP Professional will be available on all Jupiter processors in the fourth quarter of 2002. An upgrade kit will be offered for existing systems. Contact Jupiter Systems for more information.
