INDUSTRY LEADING CPU ARCHITECTURE
At the heart of the Fusion 964 is the most powerful CPU architecture of any display processor in its class: dual Intel Xeon processors running at 3.2GHz, a 800MHz front side bus coupled to a standard 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a PCI Express-switched arrangement of 64bit/66MHz PCI peripheral slots, and built-in dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. With the capacity to add up to 3GB of RAM and the equivalent of four processors with Intel Hyper-Threading technology, the Fusion 964 can easily execute the most demanding command and control applications, and outrun its competition. Utilizing the next generation standard in PC-compatible bus architectures, PCI Express, bandwidth available to the system is multiples of standard bus architectures. All these features translate into the fastest computing platform available today in a display wall processor.
HIGH PERFORMANCE GRAPHICS
Jupiter Systems is unique in the AV market, having established a strong OEM relationship with ATI, the world leader in graphics chip technology. Jupiter uses the ATI Mobility 7500 graphics chips in the Fusion 964. The Mobility 7500 has 16MB of on-chip memory and a core clock speed of 225MHz, providing world class graphics and video performance. The Fusion 964 supports both analog and digital (DVI) outputs on its DVI-I connector at resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 pixels per output analog, and 1600 x 1200 pixels digital.
FLEXIBLE VIDEO DISPLAY
The Fusion 964 provides ample video connectivity, with a standard 16 composite BNC and 8 mini-DIN S-Video connectors. All graphics devices have access to connected video sources through Jupiter’s exclusive analog video bus. Real time video windows can be moved, scaled and placed freely on the display wall, and with standard Jupiter MultiVideo™ software, more than one video window can be displayed on any output channel. Fusion 964 video windows act like any other window on the wall and can be freely moved, resized, minimized or maximized to cover the entire display wall. Utilizing state-of-the-art video processing on Fusion 964 output boards, the Fusion 964 video windows offer the best video quality of any control room display processor.
The Fusion 964 is built in Jupiter’s facility to meet the specific requirements of each customer, and we offer these optional configurations:
HIGH PERFORMANCE RGB INPUTS
As many as 40 analog RGB inputs can be optionally added to a Fusion 964 Display Wall Processor. Sources such as laptops, workstations, stand-alone computers and legacy systems with resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 can be connected directly to the Fusion 964, displaying the source’s output in a freely moveable, scalable window on the display wall. With the additional bandwidth of the Fusion 964, RGB sources refresh in near real time and high frame rates for multiple large-scale windows can be maintained.
The Fusion 964 is designed for continuous “24/7” operation in the control room environment. To this end, the Fusion 964 features many redundant components including hot-swappable thiple redundant power supplies and optional dual removable disk drives. Hardware and software continuously monitor system parameters such as ambient chassis temperature, CPU temperatures, power supply voltages, and chassis fan tachometers and automatically alert users to conditions that require direct intervention. System events are logged both in ControlPoint software and in the standard Windows event log.
COMPREHENSIVE SOFTWARE SUITE
Jupiter Systems designs all its own software and hardware as an integrated whole, creating a tightly woven architecture that provides the best functionality and achieves the highest possible performance from its systems. The Jupiter Fusion 964 comes standard with the Windows XP Professional operating system. Jupiter’s 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 PC X server software provides compatibility with X Window client applications from workstations such as those from HP, IBM, Sun, as well as PCs running Linux. Included with the Fusion 964 is RemoteCursor™ software which allows a client Windows workstation to take control of the display wall over a network, having direct access to the entire display wall as if he/she were sitting at the keyboard and mouse directly attached to the controller. Multiple users can run RemoteCursor simultaneously, although only one can have access to the display wall at a given time.
