Aetria from Datapath provides added Control Room benefits


Datapath, engineers of visual solutions, has announced further functionality to its multi-award winning Aetria solution – providing direct support to multi-video walls via its Aligo receivers, automatic VSN processor switchover failsafes, plus enhanced graphics features available on operator workstations and video walls. 

Datapath is a world leader in control technologies for creative multi-display video walls and user terminals in control rooms of any scale. Founded in 1982 and now distributing across 5 continents, Datapath provides specialist hardware and software for all elements of Control Room video and are used and trusted in governments and high profile organizations across the world. 

Aetria – Datapath’s latest development in control room video management and control – now supports video walls driven directly by its Aligo receivers. These receivers are installed directly behind the video wall, with each receiver driving a single 4K screen, or four HD screens.  

With Aligo walls, content is displayed on a source-per-screen basis and controlled using Aetria Command Center or Aetria Workstation in the same way as video walls driven by VSN controllers. This allows a combination of VSN and Aligo sources, whilst giving an AVoIP solution KVM capability. This setup means you can now access VSN sources further away, such as briefing rooms, without the need for third-party signal extension products. 

Redundant video wall controllers with auto-failover  

High availability support for Datapath VSN video wall controllers ensures video walls remain operational in the event of a power, network, or component failure. If a VSN is unreachable on the network, loses power, or a capture or graphics card becomes unresponsive, it is automatically switched to a standby replica system. 

This video wall resilience compliments the existing support for automated failover for the central Aetria Network Manager appliance, ensuring the control room remains operational even in the event of multiple connectivity issues across different components. 

Enhanced graphics features 

The additional graphics features add enhanced window capabilities to any content, on any end point, including cropping, borders, on-screen displays, and banners,  

This gives operators capabilities to quickly categorize and identify sources using borders, add supplementary screen information using overlays, and create custom banners for information displays.
