Zandar Shows First Real Time Multi-Image Display Processor
Designed through expertise in the broadcast and professional video markets where image resolution, display, modular design and flexibility is critical, Zandar MultiViewers provide one integrated interface for the security monitoring of multiple video and data sources. They offer a flexible large split-screen display that not only provides the operator with crystal clear images of the multiple sources being monitored, but also creates a virtual monitor wall, thereby eliminating the need for bulky monitor stacks in the control room. Combined with matrix switchers and DVRs, the MultiViewers provide the integrated security surveillance systems required for intelligence led problem solving for police, community, business and government institutions today. “Over the past year, security industry investment into MultiViewers has increased rapidly and has spurred our decision to exhibit at IFSEC for the very first time,” comments Deirdre Smith, CEO at Zandar Technologies. “The show is an excellent platform to showcase Zandar’s high quality range of MultiViewer products and we are confident our newest security solution, the Predator VC16, will generate enormous interest within the industry” Unlike the current range of multiplexers and DVRs, the Predator VC16 seamlessly handles 16 video inputs (including composite and s-video and up to four computer sources) and manipulates them for display on a single large screen using a projector or display device. The MultiViewer processes information in full motion and in real time, producing high resolution images of up to SXGA (1280 x 1024 pixels). Enhanced viewing for operators is achieved and the MultiViewer eliminates the restrictions of desktop viewing commonly associated with CRT monitors. Screen layouts can be flexibly managed to suit the needs of every security system with the availability of presets. Network control software can be utilised for larger control rooms where more than one Predator VC16 MultiViewer is installed and requires centralised control. Designed for future expansion, unlike multiplexers or screen-splitters, the unit can be expanded to add four additional composite video or S-video channels or four RGB HV or DVI computer graphic inputs. Up to 20 sources can be monitored.
