Irvine, California and Taipei, Taiwan, January 18th, 2016– IAdea, industry leader for reliable digital signage platforms, will be demonstrating its paradigm-shifting AnyTiles™ video wall solution at the upcoming Integrated Systems Show in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Powering the solution is a novel technology named Distributed Graphics Architecture (DGA) which seeks to become the industry’s standard for virtually unlimited display resolution on ever larger video wall installations.
Video walls are seen as the next growth engine for digital signage. Research reports estimate up to 3X faster growth rate in the video wall segment compared to digital signage in general. Certain markets saw as much as 8X more shipment of public displays for video walls compared to single-screen digital signage. One of the challenges identified in the video wall market segment is the inability to keep up with the need for ever higher pixel resolution as video walls expand. Ordinary computer graphics from a single computer tops out its pixel-driving limit at around 20 displays.
A new solution termed “Distributed Graphics Architecture” (DGA) works by weaving a large number of independent, ordinary off-the-shelf graphics hardware into one large, coordinated display fabric. The idea is not different from the Hadoop computing architecture which uses a large number of ordinary computers to form huge, unlimited computing clouds. Hadoop is now employed by software giants including Google, Facebook, SAP and IBM to perform affordable and scalable data crunching. IAdea commercializes the DGA technology with its AnyTiles™ video wall system. Several projects around the globe are driving pixel-perfect contents on very large video walls using this solution.
“We have been working with several industry leaders under non-disclosure terms for the past couple of years. Related technologies with commercial products will be unveiled later this year, and the video wall integrators are expected quickly embrace the new way once they see how well it works,” says John C. Wang, CEO of IAdea. “The momentum behind DGA is tremendous as we utilize off-the-shelf parts often found inside your cellphones to jointly do amazing graphics with virtually unlimited scalability. Once people get used to seeing pixel-perfect graphics on video walls, there will be no going back to today’s fuzzy, old-style video walls. We are thrilled to show off the technology with the support from Litemax, a visionary who is building the future of the display industry.”
IAdea will be exhibiting Litemax DLO4603 to display AnyTiles™. Equipped with the highest color calibration on the market, Litemax DLO4603 guarantees a visual experience unlike any other. Featuring a full HD resolution of 1920×1080, the DLO4603 will be shown delivering a 8K2K display tiled together in a 4 by 2 format, perfectly designed for powerful media broadcasting and commercial advertising at shopping malls, sports arenas, exhibition halls, casinos, hotels and resorts.
“Litemax is proud to join ISE 2016 with IAdea, our esteemed partner, showcasing our award-winning display wall solution,” said David King, President of Litemax. “At Litemax, we will continue to build advanced systems and enable intelligent platforms for the digital signage market.”
Previous attempts at using multiple, independent devices to render large video wall displays often resulted in proprietary systems that are limited in usability and prone to inconsistent performance. IAdea’s solution is compatible with running Microsoft Windows-based software as well as supporting HTML5-based vector graphics and animation, in addition to playing videos. This greatly enhances the applicability of the solution.
A pixel-perfect, AnyTiles-based video wall comprising of high brightness displays from Litemax will be demonstrated live at the upcoming Integrated Systems Europe Show, February 9-12, 2016, on stand 8K-320 at the Amsterdam RAI, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
