Datapath, leading manufacturer of video management solutions, has released the latest version of their WallControl 10 video management software. WallControl 10 v1.12 includes a number of user-driven enhancements to improve source identification, simplify the management and re-use of assets, and provide increased control of available sources.
The latest developments provide a new On-Screen Display (OSD) feature, which allows users to identify displayed sources at a glance by adding text labels to their source windows. This is especially useful in control room and security environment where sources may appear similar at first glance (such as CCTV camera feeds or cropped sections of an application). The OSD feature also allows users to include dynamic variables in their labels such as source name, time/date, frame rate and resolution.
To further differentiate sources and their boundaries on the video wall, users can now overlay coloured borders onto content (for Vision and SQX card sources) and add frames around any displayed window.
Banners & Asset Management
With the latest version, WallControl 10 Pro now includes support for creating banners for display on the video wall. Users specify the banner text, either by entering manually or by specifying an RSS feed, text scrolling direction (or setting as static) and the background colour for the banner. Transparency backgrounds are also supported.
Once created, banners can be saved in the new Asset Manager included as part of WallControl 10 Pro, for re-use in different layouts across multiple video walls. Configured windows (with crops, OSD, borders and carousels) can also be saved in the Asset Manager for convenience.
Matthew Tibbitt, product manager for Datapath, said: “We are constantly looking at ways to enhance our renowned WallControl software, and these latest advancements bring considerable benefits to the end user experience. The addition of Asset Manager gives users the power to create bespoke video walls with banners, scrolling feeds and colour-coded areas for information uniformity with ease. The OSD feature means users will always know exactly which feed they are watching, and further removes the opportunity for error – critical in a control room environment.”
The latest release of WallControl 10 (v1.12) is available now. For a personal demonstration, or for more details, please contact your Datapath representative.
