Jupiter Catalyst 4K

4K Display Wall Processor with Canvas 5.0

Create the world’s highest resolution video wall with 4K resolution on every display.

Get razor-sharp 4K resolution on every display in your video wall with the new, highly evolved Catalyst 4K processor. Faster graphics, real time frame rates, and better overall system performance than anything in its class is delivered thanks to its Intel E5 Six-Core Xeon CPU-based platform with a PCI Express 3.0 chassis and 6 powerful, high speed slots.

Drag and drop video and data windows anywhere on the display wall, juxtapose sources in order to get a full 360-degree view of operations, and save and recall layouts appropriate for specific situations, users, or time of day.

Catalyst 4K ships with Canvas 5.0, the latest version of our award-winning collaborative visualization suite.

4K Input and Output Support

Capable of decoding up to 28 non-HDCP 4K signals, Catalyst 4K supports input signals with a 4K DVI input card that leverages a DVI-D single-link connector. Catalyst 4K supports up to 12 non-HDCP 4K outputs on a single CPU chassis. Each 4K display has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels per output and four destination windows per card through a mini DisplayPort interface. Add up to four Expansion Chassis to gain even more inputs.

Built for Canvas

The Catalyst 4K display wall processor ships with Canvas 5.0, providing access to all of the visual business intelligence made available in the user’s network—including live streams from network cameras and mobile devices, application screens from PCs, and real-time data feeds.

Users at the display wall can collaborate with distant colleagues on their PCs, smartphones, tablets, and in conference rooms equipped with Canvas Touch or CRS-4K endpoints.

With Canvas, users can annotate directly on live video streams, chat by text or voice, integrate with Microsoft Lync, and collaborate on documents in real time. Canvas 5.0 adds software decoding of IP video streams (including 4K), as well as support for user authentication in Active Directory or Workgroup environments.

Native 4K Decoding

Catalyst 4K offers CPU-based decoding on both H.264 and H.265 HD and 4K sources.

Catalyst 4K supports decoding up to:

  • Eight HD H.264 streams
  • Two 4K H.264 streams
  • Two 4K H.265 streams

Catalyst 4K in Action

The Catalyst 4K processor is the ideal solution for projects of any size. Each 3RU rack-mountable CPU Chassis has 6 PCI Express 3.0 slots while each of up to 4 expansion chassis has 7 PCI Express 2.0 slots, enabling very large configurations.

Catalyst 4K supports up to 12 4K displays, which can showcase up to 48 HD sources. With optional Quad HD Decoder Cards, Catalyst 4K can support up to 112 HD inputs in one CPU Chassis plus four Expansion Chassis.

The Catalyst 4K processor is also valuable when users want to present content to an in-room audience outside of a Canvas session. With optional Dual-Link DVI Input Cards, up to 56 inputs without HDCP are supported for display on the local display wall only. Inputs via the DVI connection are not shareable in Canvas.
