    The XTREMEIPC-iX9 wall controller is the latest addition to the EMS range of video wall controller solutions. With EMS’s advanced graphics display technology, the XTREMEIPC-IX9 offers full flexibility in display types and orientation, video management, input and output configurations.

    The XTREMEIPC-IX9 features an Intel Core i7 processor providing increased capability for system data video processing. The 19” industrial PC chassis has been designed for display controller applications specifically in mind and offers a compact extensible design, yet with excellent airflow management, making it easy to install and manage in difficult physical environments.

    System Architecture

    This EMS video wall controller has been designed, developed and optimised to operate with the latest generation of our EMS PCI Express graphics and video capture cards. The graphics cards are PCI Express compatible providing support for HD, SD, DVI and RGB video overlays. They can provide a maximum resolution of 4 x 1920 x 1200 x 32 bit. EMS video capture cards provide HD capture or HDMI capture capabilities as well as a number of high resolution video capture modes including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, Dual Link DVI, RGB, VGA and Composite; for Analog video and Standard Definition.

    The XTREMEIPC-VSN video wall controller is built around EMS’s PCIExpress9 backplane and SBC2 single board computer. The PCIExpress9 features nine slot backplane for flexibility. The SBC2 features an Intel Core i7 2600 processor, 8GB of memory (16GB option available) a full set of I/O and RS232 for automation solutions.

    The XTREMEIPC-VSN has an PCIExpress9, a nine slot PCI Express backplane eight 4-lane slots plus one 8-lane slot. To provide flexibility and a solution to the larger project, this wall controller can be used with proven XtremeIPC-X9+ expansion chassis, increasing the number of available PCI Express slots.

    The S-Link card can be used instead of a PICMG 1.3 SBC to configure the PCIExpress9 as an expansion backplane from a standard PC or from other PCIExpress9 backplanes by connecting to an H-Link card.

    The XtremeIPC-VSN has an industrial SBC to provide reliability, also air flow management is optimised through the fan and chassis build. VigiControl Monitor is a software application for monitoring system status for EMS’s video wall controllers. This application will monitor; CPU core(s) temperature, system PSU voltages and GPU temperatures. It can provide the user with a warning which is either an audio notification, an error message or an email if the voltages and temperature are out of specification. VigiControl monitor can shut down the system automatically if any readings become critical.

  • Software

    EMS offers a full suite of software applications for display control in different applications and business environments, to meet a diverse set of customer requirements. A well structured set of graphics and video capture drivers allows OEM suppliers to build efficient display control and content management applications, making full use of the underlying hardware capability, whilst being protected from the intricate details of hardware resource management. EMS’s Wall Control application offers an effective tool for display controllers in diverse end user markets.

    EMS’s VigiControl-red video wall software is designed to make full use of EMS’s graphics and capture hardware technology and maximises the use of available hardware acceleration both on video inputs and outputs.

    VigiControl-red video wall software allows advanced interactive desktop control and configuration, interactively opening, moving, sizing and positioning video overlay, RGB/ DVI/ SD/ HD windows and Microsoft Windows application software. This is a useful application where specific areas of captured input need to be individually display and controlled, such as command and control video walls. EMS’s IP Video Server augments VigiControl-red video wall software enabling large numbers of simultaneous IP video streams from cameras or other source. IP Video Server can be used in conjunction with EMS’s Render Station up to 240 IP video windows.

    Typical applications include:

    • Command/Control
    • Education/Computing
    • Healthcare
    • Retail/Trading
    • Security/Surveillance
    • Video Broadcast/Streaming
