ZeeVee is upgrading its ZyPer Management Platform with new multiview, preset and grid features (aka: integrating rAVe’s own Gary Kayye’s “Digital Canvas” concept into its AV-over-IP platform). Version 2.2, designed for the company’s ZyPer4K (SDVoE, uncompressed 4K, 10 Gbps) and ZyPerUHD (JPEG2000, compressed, 1 Gbps) AV-over-IP encoders and decoders, enables source content to be simply dragged and dropped onto video wall displays via an onscreen interface.
The idea of Gary Kayye’s Digital Canvas is that you can display any content on any screen in any configuration — making it possible to teach or meet non-linearly — not needing to present exclusively via a slide deck or presentation deck but, instead of switching between content, keeping all content on the screen at one time.
The new multiview capabilities support a total of 19 sources. In addition, ZeeVee says switching between display configurations is easier than ever before. This allows for the creation of video walls of configurations of up to 81 monitors (9 x 9) without any additional equipment. The custom multiview editor is now also compatible with a wider array of video sizes.
Presets can be created for any API command so configurations can be stored and then activated on the fly. These presets can also be scheduled to display one time, or in a series, at any point up to a year in advance via an intuitive calendar interface. An unlimited number of schedules can be preset.
Independent source and display grids provide flexibility, intuitive tabs and filtering, column selection and drag-and-drop functionality. The grids can be exported to .csv files and stored separately or altered and imported back into the system According to ZeeVee, these additions and modifications model the configuration workflows that ProAV integrators have grown accustomed to when setting up an HDBaseT matrix — the company says this approach should help the channel transition more rapidly to AV-over-IP.
