The Extron WindoWall® System is a powerful and versatile, yet user-friendly approach for multi-display videowall systems. It features a highly scalable architecture that delivers optimum performance and reliability. WindoWall Console software is the user interface to the system, facilitating intuitive, straightforward control and configuration of videowall systems, and the creation of presentations with multiple, independent windows for displaying graphics, HDTV, and video. WindoWall is typically used to manage images on two to six screens. The WindoWall System is an ideal choice for command and control centers, network operations centers, medical facilities, courtrooms, conference rooms and training facilities, retail environments, and other applications requiring highly reliable, multi-window videowall systems.

Distributed Video Processing

WindoWall employs a distributed video processing architecture that dedicates a separate WindoWall high resolution graphics processor to each projector, video cube, or flat-panel monitor in the videowall system. Each WindoWall Processor allows for the display of up to four windows, each of which can show video, HDTV, or high resolution computer-video content. It employs proven Extron video processing technologies to deliver a fully optimized, high quality video output. The WindoWall Processor is compatible with virtually any available display and outputs high resolution video at resolutions up to 1920x1200 and HDTV 1080p/60.

Because a discrete, real-time processor is dedicated to each display unit in the videowall, WindoWall is fully scalable, supporting a wide variety of display layouts from 1x2 to 2x3 and larger. An Extron CrossPoint Ultra, CrossPoint 450 Plus, or DVI Matrix Switcher is required when distributing multiple input sources to the WindoWall Processors.

Graphical User Interface

WindoWall Console software is the user interface to the system. It brings all of the WindoWall Processors and the matrix switcher together via TCP/IP, and provides the tools and features to set up, create, and manage videowall presentations with up to four windows per display or video cube unit. The software includes intuitive Wizards that take the user step-by-step through the process of setting up a videowall and then configuring all input sources and the matrix switcher to be used in the system.

Once set-up is completed, customized window layouts can be created with the aid of a virtual canvas that lets you size and position windows anywhere as they would be shown on the videowall display. A static or live background display behind the windows adds a theme to the videowall presentation. Window layouts can be saved to 100 available memory presets for future recall.
