The Warp Engine is a transmitter/receiver that allows installers to get creative with their videowalls
Just Add Power’s (J+P) latest innovation is the Warp Engine, a transmitter/receiver that reportedly facilitates the deployment of videowalls mounted at any angle with a mix of display models. It allows integrators to rotate an HDMI source in a J+P matrix in 0.1° increments in real time with low latency. The rotated image can then be distributed to an ‘unlimited’ amount of receivers on the network, enabling huge videowalls using a single Warp Engine.
‘Bringing powerful new capabilities to the Ultra HD-over-IP ecosystem, our new Warp Engine allows installers to get creative with their videowalls by venturing beyond the traditional grid pattern,’ said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager at J+P. ‘Unlike other products on the market that are limited to custom graphics or static signage, the Warp Engine works with any HDMI source for the ultimate in flexibility.’
Also new is the VBIS-HDIP-707WP2 thin two-gang HDMI wall plate transmitter, which allows users to incorporate laptops and other HDMI devices as sources within UHD-over-IP systems. At 1.5 inches deep, the unit is designed for installation within thin walls or mounting on a table or podium. Its ‘field-serviceable modular design’ allows users to service it with a screwdriver in the event of any damage.
Finally, J+P has upgraded its 707POE transmitter. The 708POE adds a stereo analogue audio output. Like its predecessor, the transmitter distributes video resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD with no latency over a single Cat-5e cable. The unit supports HDCP 2.2 and all lossless audio formats, including Dolby Atmos. Videowall functionality is built in for displays installed in portrait and flipped configurations, as well as image push, pull and pop features.
