The Sony BZSQVW01 Ziris Canvas Videowall with Hardrive provides a plethora of opportunities for a creative outlet. The first is scale; instead of a standalone screen displaying flat content, users can create walls of screens displaying content in full HD. This increases the number of people who can see the content, and also creates huge impact and emotional engagement with the content. The capability of stretching full HD content over multiple screens that are positioned in a variety of ways is an easy way to make images really come to life in an imaginative way. Images of higher resolution than full HD can also be prepared and rendered to compensate for any loss of resolution when content is enlarged; that is, when images are stretched across multiple screens, the original full HD resolution can be retained to create maximum visual impact. Ziris Canvas also allows users to display multiple, related pieces of content. Images and logos can be displayed next to the video, which can be displayed across single or multiple screens uninhibited by the boundaries of any one screen. This creates a more stimulating and powerful viewing experience, offering rich and related content in a single location.
Ziris Canvas Videowall with Hardrive contains the modified PS3 cell broadband processor with controller, Ziris Canvas view software of Blu-Ray disc media, and a COA for Create, Manage, and Edge (if needed).
- PlayStation3 CELL Processor
- Ziris Canvas has adopted PlayStation3's CELL processor for rendering high resolution images across non-uniform, creative screen layouts requiring enormous processing power.
- Single, Simple GUI
- You can plan, layout, and schedule your artistic video wall content on a "virtual" digital canvas. The easy-to-use GUI makes it simple to import content from your preferred content-creation tool, and then stretch and render it across your chosen screen layout.
- Network Connectivity
- The PlayStation3 kiosk can be networked via a wired or wireless connection to a PC running Ziris Create, Manage, and Edge. This allows you to monitor and control the video wall from your remote PC.
- Wide Support of Popular Formats
- Ziris Canvas is able to work with video clips in MPEG2 and MPEG4 (better known as AVC HD), in both progressive as well as interlaced, formats. In order to render AVC HD videos from within the screen cutter, an additional video codec provided by Mainconcept is required, which can be purchased separately. 1
