Leyard and Planar Announce Fully Integrated Video Wall Synchronization

Leyard and Planar today announced Leyard WallSync, a set of technologies integrated into the Clarity Matrix G3 Video Wall System, which address a range of common video synchronization needs and make it easier for video playback across entire video walls without manual configuration.

Leyard WallSync claims to solve many of the common video synchronization challenges in applications ranging from simple digital signage to sophisticated broadcast implementations. It incorporates a Smart Genlock feature that automatically ensures perfectly synchronized video playback, even in dynamic environments — and that can be synchronized to both connected video sources and external “house syncs.”

Leyard WallSync addresses sync challenges by automatically synchronizing any directly attached video source across the entire video wall, regardless of size. It incorporates synchronization hardware that allows multiple Leyard Video Controllers to be synchronized together and for the video wall to be genlocked to an external house sync or a directly attached video source. Leyard WallSync also incorporates technology that solves a distracting video wall “tearing” artifact commonly seen on video walls displaying content that incorporates fast horizontal pans or in video wall applications where windows are rapidly moved across the video wall.

Leyard WallSync is fully integrated with the Clarity Matrix G3 LCD Video Wall System so that it can work with other Clarity Matrix G3 features. Its Smart Genlock feature works in coordination with Planar Big Picture Plus video scaling to automatically and dynamically sync to any attached video source that has been selected to be scaled across the video wall.

All the details are here and here.
