VuWall Enhances VuScape Video Wall Controller With Collaboration and KVM Features

VuWall, a leader in video wall control systems, continues its commitment to bridging AV and IT sources and allowing users to easily and intelligently control and manage any video wall deployment with the addition of new collaboration and KVM features to its VuScape video wall controller. With VuScape's full-featured management software, users can "control what they see" and distribute all content sources to any display on the network with the utmost flexibility.

"Today's control room is a complex hub of incoming data from a range of sources — including IP cameras, encoders, applications and documents, as well as HDMI/DVI/DP inputs — that users must command easily at any given moment," said Paul Vander Plaetse, CEO at VuWall. "VuScape simplifies the control room workflow, giving users everything they need to manage all their content streams. Whether at the video wall or from a desktop, VuScape effectively closes the gap between the different source formats in a user-friendly, future-proof controller."

Brightline LED VideoPlus Redesign and Improves Performance,Reduces Costs Posted: 05/02/2020
Brightline LED VideoPlus Redesign and nbsp;Improves Performance,Reduces Costs

Brightline, a leading manufacturer of energy efficient lighting systems, today announced a redesign of its popular LED VideoPlus flush-mounted linear fixture. Ideal for newsrooms, corporate conference rooms, government council chambers, and multimedia classrooms, the second generation brings reduced costs, improved energy efficiency, and easier installation to the multi-task light.

 

The new VideoPlus features innovative LED technology that matches the light quality of the previous model. While the new LED technology allows for a significant price drop for customers, it also reduces the weight of the fixture, making it easier to install. Plus, lower power requirements mean the VideoPlus can also be powered via PoE, which reduces the cost of installation and allows for IP control.

 

Available in two-foot and four-foot lengths, the VideoPlus can be sized to fit small and large spaces. It includes up to two crossing video light channels and one task light channel in a six-inch aperture, and is designed for drywall, acoustical lay-in, or custom ceilings.

 

“This is our first major redesign of the LED VideoPlus since we introduced it back in 2015,” said Kathy Katz, Brightline managing partner. “Installers will appreciate the lighter weight and expanded power and control options, including PoE. It’s a great choice for conference rooms and lecture halls. For broadcasters, the VideoPlus is a smart way to light your newsroom – it offers comfortable task lighting for everyday activities, as well as broadcast-quality video lighting for newsroom stand-ups and other on-air content.”

 

Brightline will demo the updated LED VideoPlus at the 2020 NAB Show (Booth C7812) in April in Las Vegas, Nev. The two-foot version is now shipping, and the four-foot version will be available in Q2 2020.
