The technology partnership established between BlueBox Video and Hanwha Techwin means that images captured by Wisenet Full HD, ultra high definition 4K and 360 degree fisheye cameras can now be cost effectively displayed on and across a video wall, as well as on a desktop PC monitor.
The successful integration of Wisenet WAVE Video Management Software (VMS) with professional grade video wall controllers manufactured by BlueBox provides an affordable control room solution for a wide range of applications including education campuses, hospitality, transport and construction, as well as emergency services.
Low power, high performance
BlueBox Video wall controllers are specifically designed to meet high performance demands of a multi camera video surveillance system. Utilising low power high-density processing, the controllers are able to accelerate the decoding of H264, H265, MJPEG and MPEG2 compression releasing traditional CPU methods for any further encoded formats.
With three appliances in the BlueBox range, control rooms have the option to choose video wall configurations in either True and Ultra High Definition output models. Setup is made easy with the help of an installation wizard.
The 2u and 3u rack mounted form factors minimise appliance footprint, whilst total cost of ownership is further reduced through typical power consumption of around 120 watts.
“After an extensive evaluation of the BlueBox controllers testing process, our product management were able to conclude that we could confidently recommend them to system integrators who are looking to supply control rooms with a robust and affordable video wall solution,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “As a result, we have worked closely with the BlueBox technical team to develop a simple Wisenet WAVE accelerated plugin which ensures transparent interaction between our VMS and the video wall controllers.”
Richard Lince of BlueBox Video comments, “After 25 years in the video wall industry we’re unaware of a more powerful, affordable and simplified surveillance solution. Through the client WAVE application, operators can directly control video streams, fisheye de-warping parameters and archived video content in real-time across the entire video wall.”
